The keyboard the kids bought me is smaller than I previously used. Just a flash from the past. In high school, I was on an IBM Selectric typewriter and typed 100 wpm. Highly doubt with arthritis in my fingers that I could get up to 80 wpm. I would joke that it was one of the very few God given talents I was graced with.
Seems like it is clean out week for many of our neighbors here…..We have bulk pick up on certain days of the month…. Interesting what people trash…….these days.
Carry on…..as they say…. No snow here so that is a good thing.
Yes, Ernie, they say a smart phone has more computing power than the Apollo mission that went to the moon. Hard to imagine.
I took typing in JHS, Susan. I don't recall what I typed, probably not very fast. It was required at the time.
No resolutions for me other than to keep last year's to not smoke.
Too many items end up in the landfill. I took 5 old pairs of sneakers to a Nike for recycling last year. They take any brand and have a process that breaks them down. The resultant Nike Grind is used for running tracks, playgrounds, and similar things. Otherwise rubber takes 80+ years to decompose.
Good morning Paul, Susan, and all. Was about 28 here this morn so not to bad. Glad Finn
enjoyed his long walk. The pups and I are going 4.5 miles these days. They are about 13 months
old. Spilled a whole cup of coffee on myself, chair, and floor this morning so had to clean all that
up and still make my 4:00 with the pups. Didn't get on PC much until now, 7:30. Liver is important,
can't stay alive without it and we only have one, like a heart, brain, and such. Our pups can jump up
on the furniture. We have a dog mat for dogs that can't jump up. Couldn't put it in the pups kennel
because they would chew it up. They have a thick blanket folded over and over in their kennel.
I have a virus protection included with my internet, not the best one but seems to work most of the
time. My brother just lost his PC to the people that disconnect your hard drive from Windows unless
you give them some money. Think you can reload Windows to correct it but my brother gives up
easily and bought a new PC. He tried to set it up himself and failed so by the time he got someone
there to help him he had forgotten the user id's and passwords he used which made it much harder
for the guy trying to help him, took 8 hours.
Good thing the DMV sends out those notices Susan. Lot of people would see that as a chance to keep
an older person like us off the road. Having to retest would give them an easy path. DMV gave us a
hard time getting veterans put on my license and both of us getting the enhanced real id or something
like that. Was supposed to have it to board a jet by now but saw they postponed it for another year. We
don't know where our grandkids might end up and what trouble they might need our help with, in a hurry.
I also took typing in 9th grade, unusual, surprised to see Paul did also. I was the only boy in the class, not
that a 9th grade boy minds that, just a little unusual.
I use my jogging shoes for walking after jogging for a long time. I jog in them way longer than they recommend.
6 months think it is. My jogging is slow and I use Brooks running shoes, jogging socks, and now I wrap the ball
of my foot in elastic bandage. Afraid of bruising one again if that's what grounded me for 6 years. My numbers
were good today glucose 102 and weight 144.7 lbs. Hopefully more days I can contribute to my family and have a
life. Instead of being a ball and chain for them, not being able to walk, see, or think rationally. My regulators don't
work though. If I had the test strips to check after eating, would see very high numbers. My prescription is only
for one test a day so I do it after fasting all night and exercising, before breakfast. They say I can't get a prescription
for more test strips because my glucose numbers aren't that high. The time I take it is the most meaningful to me
and to the doctor.
I need to go back to the alignment shop with my Baja again today. Fixed the front end steering / suspension so they
can check the rear alignment.
Enjoy the day all. Above average but still Winter days.
I can not believe you still post in the forum. God bless you! Give Finn a hug for me.
Here we are Miss Tina ~
After all of these years… going strong and thanks to all of you ~ smokefree!
Finn is 11 now and I cherish each and every day with him! How about your wonderful Goldens? My, how we ?? our puppies!
I believe I am going on fourteen years. How about you? Susan and Finn

I do not know what I would have done without this group.
Gracie Belle (12 years) is still hanging in there, tumor and all.
I am going on 13 smoke-free years.
I often spill coffee on myself or my desk, Ernie. I guess that is some type of clumsiness.
I vaguely recall that I had a choice between typing and Home Economics one year. I thought typing was the lesser evil.
Enjoy the evening everyone,
Love your profile photo. I live about 30 miles from the falls, outside of Buffalo. GO BILLS!
