Our Hummingbirds have joined us for breakfast every morning this week. The online Hummingbird Journal reports huge numbers of the little birds swarming in the south and bird watchers are noticing more activity around their feeders because it has been hot and there are very few flowers for them. Many people even turn on the sprinklers so they can play in the water and fly through it. Please help keep our migrating Hummingbirds safe and well fed!"
Our DSL was down for two days while we are switching to a new service provider. I nearly went crazy. Have you ever tried to live without internet for even a few days? I could give up TV before the internet! Well, do I have a deal for you...
The iPhone Mobile Hotspot--don't leave home without it. I love the service called "My Personal Hotspot" (sounds almost risqué). When we were traveling to Chicago by RV we priced mobile wi fi hotspots and found them to be expensive and, reportedly, not efficient. I already had an iPhone4 so I got this service and now I can turn on the hotspot on my phone, and my iPad, laptop and PC pick up wi fi from it where ever I am. Love it to pieces and it kept me sane while the DSL was down. That little phone in the picture is providing my PC with wi fi.
Are you a Where's Waldo lover as I am? I admit I have loved the mysterious Waldo since a friend gave me a wand with glitter and sparkle floating in an unknown fluid. The wand contains Waldo hidden among the glitter. The problem is that I can never find him (once in two years). So now I have a Where's Waldo App for my phone and iPad. It satisfies my desire to know what the little rascal is doing.
Dogs, dogs, dogs!! Can't live without them. Our Macy and her little daily visitor Max have a favorite game they play with new toys. We have to buy two toys because they each must have one. They play with them separately and together for several hours, then they get down to the business of removing the squeaker from the toys along with a large quantity of fluff. We call this process, "Squeak gutting and defluffing." The toys then go to my desk and when I have two I re-stuff and sew them. The two dogs will stand on either side of me while I sew and when I finish I give a toy to each and off they go to play. I don't know how we could live without their little doggie idiosyncrasies.
Well that's it. I was just thinking about random things. Who wants to think about work?
Life is good.
