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! […]

So I come home from doing errands and this sight greeted me. This is a different phone that what Mr. Ken usually uses, so I am puzzled. I am even more puzzled when said object starts making odd noises, kind of like chirping sounds. Naturally, I reach toward the phone to see what is going […]

Social media faux pas

Okay, so social media is here to stay. But it seems it is degenerating into quick hits. A few recent experiences got me thinking about how little thought we put into what we say on social media. 1. Why connect. I’m a big LinkedIn user, since it is more for professional use. I am always […]
