For the techies – I finally ditched Internet Explorer. My computer was getting hung up all the time even on other programs like Outlook and Word. Switching the browser seems to have cleared it up. It was easier than tossing the computer out the window (don’t tell me you’ve never wanted to do that!) and buying another one!
On the topic – Have you noticed that if you click on a video there is an ad in the middle? Before it was at the beginning (and still is for some). I could decide if I wanted to wait or not. Now you get hooked into a video and then they have a 30 second ad in the middle. I close it out. Don’t like sneaky.
Those millennials! – I got an email from Starbucks that listed what the millennials are drinking. I was curious. The major theme was lots of extra shots of espresso. Yikes!
Can you hear me now? – We were out with some friends this week. One friend didn’t seem to understand anything. He repeated the same question over and over (as if there might be a different answer) and it seemed like the synapses weren’t snapping. His wife said he can’t hear so well but would not acknowledge it. A long time ago I learned that it’s better to be upfront about any hearing deficits. If I say I don’t hear so well, people make the effort to face me when they talk to me and speak up. I lost my pride a long time ago.
And a sad end – It was a weekend of death. One of our beloved grandpups had to be put down. He was diagnosed with an advanced incurable disease and his quality of life wasn’t good. He was a young dog. Another daughter was visiting to attend a celebration of life for one of her childhood friends. He wasn’t yet 50. All too young. All too sad.
So how was your week?
