May 19, 2021

In my last blog I wrote about my most favorite DIY project – building my own desktop computer. In this blog I thought I’d stay in the technology arena but have some fun talking about the sea change that has occurred during my lifetime in the world of technology, especially the technology behind phones, television […]

My most favorite DIY project is…

May 12, 2021

I’ve done a lot of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects over the years but one stands out as being my all time favorite. It’s probably given me more satisfaction than any other project. My all time favorite DIY project was building my own desktop computer! In fact I’m using it to write this blog! I’ve been involved […]

A kind word can do wonders

We all are a bit stressed these days. Hah – that’s an understatement. So I decided to bite the bullet and schedule some health screenings that I had put off because of COVID. Yes, I was very nervous about going into the hospital. I still picture millions of COVID germs floating around in the air […]

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 […]

Computer records can be a lot neater than paper records, that’s for sure. I understand the push for medical records to be online. Except, for me, there have been several VERY annoying consequences. 1. The doctor spends his/her time looking at the computer screen and not at me while asking me questions. Am I really […]

Password blackhole

So I went to sign into my cvs.com account the other day. I got one of those dreaded messages, “Time to change your password. Click here to get sent a re-set link.” Darn it, I don’t want to change my password since my cvs one is one of the few I actually remember. But I […]

Big brother is watching!

This mysterious package showed up on our doorstep the other day. This box looks like a box for expensive men’s cologne. I was confused since I know Mr. Ken does not wear cologne. Mr. Ken quickly absconds upstairs with the box. I hear nothing more of it until the next day. I came downstairs and […]

So I finally bought a Smart TV for my exercise room. A Smart TV means you can access the Internet from your TV. I wanted to be able to access the myriad of exercise videos on YouTube. As if my collection of 100’s of exercise DVDs wasn’t enough! The picture is crystal clear and big! […]

Ting, ting, ting

This sounds like a bell chiming doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. Rather it is the name of my new cellular network. Leave it to my dear Mr. Ken to find the best and cheapest network, along with the best smart phone. The phone is a Blu (android) and it does everything an iPhone does, except […]

I felt so refreshed with my last technology-free vacation, I am going to do it again this week! I will be off the computer for a week. Enjoy this peaceful scene. It reminds me of the view from my kayak. Have you tried a vacation from technology? If not, I highly recommend it. 🙂 Peaceful […]
