Trying to get it all streamlined on Facebook

I've been spending countless hours recently trying to get my Facebook Fan Page for our business to be able to have all of our updates streamed to one location. I've added My Etsy, YouTube, Join our List (for Constant Contact - our email newsletter), and now I'm linking our blog. Hence this post. This is actually a test for me to see if this will auto feed to our Facebook page, but also just to inform you of what I'm working on. This cyber world is all over the place and it seems confusing to have ourselves all sprawled out. I like the idea of sprawled out, but with a main area to visit to see it all at once. Wish me luck.

Translation Software

So, I got an e-mail from Spain today that was just not making any sense to me. Yes, broken English I can usually understand pretty well, but I was just not getting this one. Here it is.

"Good Evenings, I wanted to know the price of the Deluxe Electric Mandrel Spinner and that baboon uses or if they can use different sizes."

I thought and thought about this and just decided to revisit it later. When I did, I solved the communication mystery. I thought to myself, isn't there a monkey called a Mandrel? I looked into it and there is, but it is spelled Mandrill. Anyway, they were asking about mandrel sizes for the spinner and the translation software changed the word to Baboon!! I thought that was funny and wanted to share the story.
