We’ve had a couple of technology issues lately.
The trackpad on one of our laptops quit working, and the local computer repair shop is closed due to Covid exposure. While debating whether to wait and fix or buy a new one, we decided to go old school. We ordered a mouse and pad, which surprisingly works quite well as long as you don’t try to use it as a ‘lap’top. 🙂
We also hit the point where we have to change cell phone providers and upgrade our phones from iPhone 6 and 7 to 12. We’ve tried AT&T and Verizon. One bar of service and continual dropping of calls just plain gets old. We’re hoping T-Mobile will be better. If not, we’ll be going old school again and have to reinstate a landline that we got rid of about five years ago. Who knew we’d ever miss the stability of that old landline.
One chuckle was a WordPress post I did for Master Gardeners about ‘crab apple’ trees. Either I fat fingered it or spell check ‘helped’ me because when the email post notice came through it was ‘crap apple.’ 🙂 I was able to fix the post and FB but couldn’t do anything about the email, and I did get a couple of responses to that one.
To finish my weekend off, I had to deal with a troll on the MG Instagram account. With all that is going on around us, I just couldn’t imagine a person taking the time to go off on a tirade about a plant and a historical comment about it. I don’t know if I’m the only one or not, but with Covid and current events I feel mentally tired and don’t go looking for added drama.
On a positive note, I have two plants that are getting ready to bloom on my porch and a completed sewing project.
I’ll finish with this thought – an IN friend’s husband has an appointment this week to get his first vaccine shot. 🎇 Here’s hoping everyone who is interested in the vaccine can get on their state list soon. In the meantime, stay safe. 😷
