Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Wednesday’s Food For Thought

I only have time today to share a few item I hope you will find of interest.

I have a list, and I go through it each afternoon. I find that the more I can check off a “Yes”, the better I feel:

  • did I make someone smile?
  • did I answer all my mail?
  • did I ride a bike, or take a walk?
  • did I learn something new?
  • did I do a “random act of kindness”?
  • did I tackle an unpleasant chore?
  • did I tidy up a mess?
  • did I receive any money?
  • did I “stop and smell the roses” and/or appreciate nature’s beauty?
  • did I do anything nice for ME?

(I am curious.. Do you have a list like that? Does it work for you?)

Blowing my own horn department: Loyal readers might like to know that I have added to my already busy schedule, and now am writing for Find The, as their “resident expert” in Desktop and Laptop/Notebook PC’s.

Find The Best is a relatively new concept: a “comparison engine” (on virtually any subject or item). | Unbiased, Data-Driven Comparisons.

FindTheBest is an objective comparison engine that allows you to find a topic, compare your options and select the best choice for you.”

    • delenn13,
      Good to see you here again.

      Yes, I am afraid that today’s article was on my To Do list since February, but got “back burnered” until it slipped my feeble mind altogether.
