Ditch WhatsApp and Snag Telegram

I have used WhatsApp for several years now. There is a reason it has such a huge user base. Naturally this would attract attention from some tech companies. One of those happens to be Facebook, who bought them out in 2014 for about $19 billion dollars. What’s the problem? Facebook has been accused of various…

Hope This Works – Gardening

Sunday afternoon was a mix of work and plan. I was out in the front weeding and making sure wasps have not made a home in our front bush. Once that was done, I headed over to the master bath to fix a slowly draining sink. No problems there and now it flows great. It…

The First Week Inside

The first “shelter in place” week went by fast and slow at the same time. It seemed to me each passing day was slowly going. As soon as night fell then I felt the day went by fast. Strange isn’t it? Oh and don’t think it was because there was not any work to do….

Fear and Panic

It is understandable why people are very much worried about supplies during this time. Schools are closing down. Businesses are reducing hours. Even larger companies and places of entertainment are all closing down. The news keeps playing the same hype over and over again. However, I am wondering the current state or mindset of people…

Another Year Older

Thank you everyone for the birthday messages, texts, phone calls, and gifts. It all contributed to a wonderful day. If you were curious I started my day around 630 AM. I did grab my free Starbucks drink, then had a free pizza from Pieology, enjoyed an early afternoon bike ride, and snagged a free bundt…

A Surprise Gift

Sipping my coffee at work this morning, I hear a knock at my door. I look over to see who it is and one of my coworkers is standing there. She has this one pound bag of coffee in her hand. She tells me this is a really good coffee and I should give it…
