Tech – for Everyone

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

How about a FF a day early?

I feel a need to counteract the effect on my psyche of the headlines reporting the state of our world. So I felt a call for a dose of Patsy.
And the soothing balm of retreat into a classic. Care to join me?

Be well.

Today’s quote:There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” ~ Isaac Asimov

Escaping Monday

Sometimes .. when I am feeling that sour-stomach feeling from stress and/or worry, I find the quickest fix comes from the attitude change caused by a certain image, or song, or .. a smile from a friend.

Here’s an image: (aka Sunday Beauty #176, A Day L8)

Different than my usual Friday Fun

Folks, here’s a music video I hope will brighten your Friday.

(I don’t know about you, but that song has some memories attached…)

Today’s quote:One who is kind is sympathetic and gentle with others. He is considerate of others’ feelings and courteous in his behavior. He has a helpful nature. Kindness pardons others’ weaknesses and faults. Kindness is extended to all – to the aged and the young, to animals, to those low of station as well as the high.” ~ Ezra Taft Benson
