Something to think about …. “On the day after Mother’s Day … an afterthought”!!


~~May 9, 2016~~ 


Has anyone out there had this same thought?

I must confess I have. I’ve seen it in my own family.

A three year old already has his own iPodTouch!

Another toddler I know has his own iPad … the parents ask for this permission to be able to use it themselves!

All four grandkids are “fluent” in techno language.

Sometimes even more than me.

That is scary!

I can understand why this happens.

Hand them the electronic gadget and there’s instant peace and quiet.

Instant gratification for both adults and kids.

Yet, at the expense of what?

Autocorrect …. Helpful but can drive one nuts!!

~~October 29, 2014~~

Text replacement, replace-as-you-type or Auto-Correct is an automatic data validation function commonly found in word processors such as Microsoft Word and text editing interfaces for Apple Inc. products including the iPod, iPhone and the iPad. Its principal purpose is as part of the spell checker to correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user. It is also used to automatically format text or insert special characters by recognizing particular character usage, saving the user from having to use more tedious functions.

The replacement list for text replacement can also be modified by the user, allowing the user to use shortcuts. If, for example, the user is writing an essay on the industrial revolution, a replacement key can be set up to replace the ‘word’ “ir” with “industrial revolution”, saving the user time whenever she wants to type it. For users with the patience, this facility can even be used to create a complete keyboard shorthand system, along lines similar to those of Dutton Speedwords, but with short forms instantly replaced by full forms.

I have a new toy …. an AT&T Mobile Hotspot!!


~~July 28, 2014~~ 

I got a new toy last weekend. I didn’t go out to get it, of course. MJ when to pay the AT&T bill at their store because I didn’t look through the mail and didn’t keep her update on the pending bills. 

Turns out that this worked out better because she came home with this new toy.


“The touchscreen revolution has officially spilled over to portable hotspots. We gave ‘Novatel Wireless’ AT&T MiFi Liberate an Editors’ Choice award for its charming mix of endurance, features, and finger-friendly usability just over a month ago, and now, AT&T has announced yet another touchscreen hotspot is coming to its network: Sierra Wireless’ AT&T Unite.

Like the MiFi Liberate, the new AT&T Unite packs 4G LTE support and the ability to provide a Wi-Fi connection for up to ten devices simultaneously. The 2.4-inch touchscreen display lets you monitor usage and manage connections with the swipe of a finger, including the ability to create a “Guest” hotspot.

The pearly white design may appeal to people put off by the MiFi Liberate’s graphite chassis, but the AT&T Unite is going to need to bring a lot to the table to unseat the current king from its throne. The Liberate mixes a whopping 8 hour charge with handy-dandy features such as DLNA streaming from a micro-SD card, GPS mapping, and email support.”




I must confess, I haven’t read the instructions (I rarely do – guess I will have to for this one). However, the device was set up by the store associate.

As I have been told, this works really cool. You have your own “hotspot” to take with you. In this model, you can wirelessly connected 8-10 devices. In my mind, this means that you use the “Wi-Fi” function of your cell, iPad, laptop to the little device and you will be connected to the internet. 

I’ve tried it at home. The main thing is, you keep it in your purse, connect the device’s “wifi” switch and “voila” … your are connected!

Don’t be fooled by her generosity, she’s not that “techie”. The main reason for getting this “toy” is because I’m so connected that the AT&T bill was steadily climbing because I used up all the “gigs” that our plan allowed.

There’s always a reason and a silver lining. 

Anyway, she does love me!! 


I got something similar … in the process of trying to figure it out. It was set up at the store, so really, I guess I only need to “plug and play” …. the best way!!
