Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 17th day of May, 2016.

Well the forecast had been for sunshine and about 24 degrees for today.

This morning and through the night the wind  has got up and the sky is overcast.

The air is cool this morning.

Perhaps we will have some rain.

I went from wearing a dress and light sweater to pants, top, socks, shoes and jacket.

My how things can change.

Note to self take thee umbrella.

 

Today is one of those days after a frustrating row with the computer and trying to upload/download photos to KIJIJI for my garage sale/sale.

What can you do?

Post without the photos.

I had no choice.

Perhaps this evening things will work out.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed a nice walk last night.

The wind was starting to get up as we went quite late just before 9:00 p.m.

 

Back to the technology.

Does it sometimes make you want to S-C-R-E-A-M?

Yes, it does.

Does it sometimes make you think, E-A-S-Y in what context?

Computers are definitely a wonderful invention but really could they make things a bit easier.

Do we everyday folk have to have a degree in Computer Science to figure out the things that should be just a click away?

Oh well ….. I should not be ranting and raving.

I do love the convenience of the computer for the most part.

Breathe ….. that is all I can say is breathe.

 

Have an awesome day.

Don’t throw the computer out the window.

We will figure it out in time.

New operating system ….. slower, yes.

Easy to figure out …. NO.

 

Special Hello to: my fellow women and men who just want to upload a photo or send an email in good time.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of July, 2015.

It is a wonderful morning here in Edmonton ….. the sun is rising, the rain clouds have almost dissipated and there is a bit of a breeze.

Forecast is for another warm one ….. not super hot and that is great.

On Saturday while at our Vet Clinic, I ordered a water bottle for Alvin.

One that I can carry while we walk.

Guess what …. there was a message from them …. the bottle is in.

Already, I am thinking….. wow, that is fast.

I guess with computers ….. no more paper orders …. just click and then it is in the mail or perhaps hand delivered.

I am so excited to see which one they could order.

Last night one of my neighbours called to come for a visit ….. I was drinking tea and made her a cup of coffee.

She loves the coffee that I make in my percolator.

Alvin loves company ….. he was so excited …..

We had a great visit followed by a walk with Mr. Alvin.

What a wonderful evening.

Do you ever think of an item that you could use but there is really nothing on the market?

Consider making something but wonder where do you start?

I was thinking about something…..

I will keep it a secret until I figure a few things out.

Who knows maybe I will re-invent something ….. just a bit different that is currently on the market.

Well here it is almost time to leave for work once again.

Where does the time go?

Sometimes it feels like someone is holding up a giant vacuum at the top of the world pulling moments up one by one.

Well doesn’t that sound a bit better than the actual reason?

I wish you an awesome Tuesday.

I know that this is going to be a great great day.

Filled with all good things.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers, I hope that you are enjoying your summer(s).

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Tuesday Morning … the date is March 27th, 2012.

I still am in awe that we are in 2012 …. seems like only yesterday that we were preparing for the new millennium.

Do you remember the hype, anxiety and excitement that surrounded going from 1999 to 2000?

At the end of it all when the clock struck midnight on December 31st, 1999 ….. the world was still operating, and we were fine.

I am so grateful that I was alive to bring in the new millennium.  Very exciting.

I only wish that my grandmother had lived for a few more years to bring in the year 2000.

She had been born in 1901 and passed away in 1998.

When I think back to all of the things that she experienced during her lifetime  ….  being one of the first women to have her own car(s), man walking on the moon, beginning of the technology age, and first computers.

So much to even remember…..

So take a moment or two and think about all of the changes since you were born……. it seems like everyday there is something new and exciting.

I hope that you have fun remembering ….

Have a great day.

Perhaps you would like to drop me a line and let me know what your favourite / most interesting invention or change/update has been?

Special Hello to:  all those inventors…… idea people …… you rock.

“Gotta run” ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
