Punctuation is one of my most favorite topics. I regularly yell at signs posted on businesses along the roadway who declare such comments as WE HAVE WATERMELON’S TODAY. Or worse yet SUNDAY SERVICE’S, or even… 4 SAIL SHOE’S. Yep, the culprit–misuse of apostrophe’s. (Yes I spelled it on purpose…just sayin’.) Wrongly spelled words bug me. Especially when posted on a SCHOOL sign!!! Once I actually did a wheelie and turned around … Continue reading Who Needs Punctuation??? (Yes–We Do!!!)
I have five great-grandchildren, and they all have tablets and cell phones…albeit the cell phones are under supervision. They range from 10 to 2 1/2, and the older four are proficient in computer skills (at least on a basic level, two of the kids are seven years old.) The youngest, for obvious reasons does not have a tablet, or access to cell phone use. Their … Continue reading How Did We Live Without our Cell Phones?
[This excellent post by Steve is so good, in my opinion, that I would like to take this opportunity to re-blog here on Sometimes, with an accompanying post of my own in a separate article, which will be published later today.] Continue reading RE-BLOGGED: Should we try to Auto-Correct Humanity In This Strange And Lonely New World?

Poison Ivy is real and annoying, and Politics–surreal and ridiculous sometimes. I’ve written about myself…mostly adventures and quirks. Other posts featured butterflies, Cuba, TV shows, Will Smith, the Aztec Calendar, and the Word Police. Even after studying the list of posts, … Continue reading What Do Readers Really Want?
I’m still not breathing at 100%, but so far, so good. WHAT is here? I have been as anxious as a kid on Christmas morning, waiting patiently for it to arrive. The song going through my head: “I’m so Excited! I just can’t hide it–I’m about to lose control, and I think I like it!” Yep, Windows10, the fabled new “best Windows ever!” version. I’m … Continue reading It’s Here! It’s Here! It’s Here !
(original title: RISE OF THE MACHINES–EMAIL WOE EDITION. Every one of the accounts I have…personal, business, creditors…requires a password. I have three Yahoo accounts that I use frequently, and each has a separate password. Today I changed the password on one of the account’s three times. I didn’t write it down, forgot it, it just plain slipped right out of brain. It’s not easy to … Continue reading Passwords and User Name Woes
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “It’s a Text, Text, Text, Text World.” This prompt is especially appropriate, as my friend in Virginia and I are exchanging cell numbers after at least 15 years of being email BFFs. Yesterday in fact when a strange text came across I suspiciously replied to her question asking if I had received the text. Fearing a dreaded … Continue reading OK, OK, where’s the darn space button?
