I’ve Gone to the Dark Side!

I gave up my IPHONE today in exchange for a Galaxy4S! I was hyperventilating through the whole long process.
Apple marketing made me angry. I could not keep my blue tooth until I upgraded my phone to the new 7OS. You say simple- not really. When I synced my IPHONE with my desktop all the photos on the desktop went to my IPhone. Not a problem until the upgrade happened! There was a complication because I didn’t have the space and I could not remove photos that were not taken by my IPhone…
I was told to make an appointment with Apple and they would come down and help me bring the desktop in . I could not do it right away.
Coming back from New York on last Wednesday, my blue tooth disconnected. Siri (the talking system that comes with IPhone) told me I could reconnect if I upgraded to 7OS! It is night, I am driving from NY to Mass.alone.
When I called Applecare, the tech was very condescending and said that was not possible- I am a “mac” person; but, I know Apple does try to push you like that.
I saw this as a sign from the Tech God’s that it was a time for a change. I thought about it for two days…then I entered the Verizon and told my story.
Now I have an ANDROID and i love it!


I thought I spotted an apple with a bite
out of it following me… but, that’s another story.

What kind of day is Valentine’s Day when you don’t have a partner?
Even when I had someone special, sometimes they were not really into being special toward me. I am not whinning about it, just facing the reality.
So, I have always made Valentine’s day about me, my family, those special in my life and happy about LOVE!
Love is a special thing. It is definitely good for your heart, your health, your outlook….. I love LOVE. Please all who have mates show them love. Use Valentine’s Day as an excuse because there are always lots of cards with hearts on them that are readily available!
But, use this day to reflect about your feelings about your partner. What are the things that made you think about them even when you were not together. Why did you want to be with them more and more?
Relationships are built on the willingness of the participants to work at them (no matter what else is going on in your life!)
So continue to build and work at something worthwhile.
Be positive, be happy, be grateful for having someone in your life that you can celebrate with a Valentine!

Why not me?..

After watching the Super Bowl ( or slaughter), I heard the phrase that Russell Wilson ( quarterback for the winning Seattle Seahawks) said from hides Dad. ” why not you…?”

No one that knows football expected the Broncos and Peyton not to show up.

The only ones sure Seattle would win was Seattle!  And they were RIGHT!!!

Life can be that unpredictable. One must be prepared for the unexpected, the unexplainable, the unattainable, the impossible dream… Why not you?

if we could learn to relax more and accept the unexpected things thrown at us, we would probably get through most things unscathed. That does not mean not to try,but accept what shows up and deal accordingly.

Bamboo always survives because it bends with the wind and most other force. It also can survive for a while without water, uprooted temporarily, and ignored by others. It has a resilience that is admirable and practical.

I thought this Super Bowl would be a close one. But, I really thought the Broncos would win- they were experienced, Peyton is a superior Quarterback….and this is the YEAR OF THE HORSE….

Why not you????!!!!
