Like death and taxes, we all have to endure getting our driver’s license renewed. Almost everyone would prefer to get a root canal than have to visit the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Things are even worse during the Pandemic with even longer wait times. The time has come for me to renew my license. Since […]

Comments Off on Onyx Media Belgium – how NOT to do marketing

Okay, time for another rant about really, really annoying marketing. Once again it is about idiots who think that annoying someone with multiple emails will mean that one will do business with them. Shame on you Onyx Media Belgium! Not only have you been sending multiple emails to me, but you are sending these emails […]

To say it has been a long 19 months is an understatement. As we slowly start to come out of shut down and COVID scares, life is returning to normal. But old habits die hard, I still wear a mask when I go in stores or anywhere indoors; I keep supply of disinfectant wipes in […]

So the new year is about to begin and with it, our New Year’s resolutions, most of which revolve around getting healthier.

Comments Off on Hah – I feel vindicated!

Yes, so I grew up with technology and thought I was quite comfortable with it. That is until the Smartphone arrived. I still am amazed that the computing power of a phone is greater than that of the first computer, which was the size of a first floor in a house! I had my phone […]

Comments Off on Giving up information

We do live in an information-based society. Most, or maybe just some, of us, are very careful about what we share online. But it’s funny how we react to things. A dear friend and I went to a financial seminar the other night. The topic was, “Managing your Retirment,” which is something we all need […]

Computer records can be a lot neater than paper records, that’s for sure. I understand the push for medical records to be online.
