Dating at 50


Now that I've had a chance to catch my breath, I've been interested in dating again. Not sure where to look, I turned to personals sites, one well-known. I'd been a member for a month and nothing was happening, so I cancelled the rest of the membership. Who I'm interested in dating is a professional … Continue reading Dating at 50

Smartphone and Communication


The Nokia E7 did not work out, I could not upgrade to the new software, nor could I find anyone to help. I returned the phone and am hoping to get at least a partial refund. I do like the FTec slider phone, but do not have $700. I'm just paying off the Galaxy Note … Continue reading Smartphone and Communication

Anyone Know How to Flash Symbian?


I have a Nokia E7 that needs to be flashed to the new Symbian Delight 2018 version. Currently has Symbian Belle Refresh, which is unusable in 2019. Prefer in United States due to shipping costs outside the U.S.

Beware Online Shopping


Usually shopping online is risk-free, using Amazon and eBay. But lately, there are a few unscrupulous vendors that slightly misrepresent their product enough they are legal. I'm usually a savvy shopper but this shows the best of us can be taken advantage of. Of course, the big boys, amazon and ebay completely shut themselves off … Continue reading Beware Online Shopping

Men: Do you get 38 grams of Fiber?


A few days ago I was looking into weight loss yet again. An article from the FDA and another from WebMD about fiber intake. Women need 25 grams per day and men need 38 grams per day, saying the average American gets about 15 grams per day. I thought that was untenable, 38 grams per … Continue reading Men: Do you get 38 grams of Fiber?

Samsung Continues to Disappoint


Samsung had been my go-to phone since Nokia stopped making forward thinking phones, my first being the Nokia 232, then 9500 Communicator finally the quirky, fun 7380. Then I moved to Samsung, first being the Exhibit, then the Note Edge (which I loved wholeheartedly!). I then bought a Gear S to go with the Edge … Continue reading Samsung Continues to Disappoint

Solice Speaker


  The Solice Speaker fits perfectly in your hand, has a carabiner clip to attach to most anything to take with you on the go. I immediately plugged in the charger but didn't see an indicator. There is a blue light at the back, that wasn't explained in the one page instructions. I left the … Continue reading Solice Speaker

Ulvench Fitness Tracker


Ulvench Fitness Tracker ID115PlusHR Mid-January I purchased the Ulvench Fitness Tracker ID115U because my Samsung Galaxy Gear S was no longer visible in direct sunlight, which defeated the purpose of wearing it. I didn't want to spend hundreds on another smartwatch or tracker and the Ulvench Tracker was thin enough on the wrist, performing the … Continue reading Ulvench Fitness Tracker

Passing the Gardens of Earthly Delights


Some dreams just stick with you. I was dropped off at an island with just a bag of my choosing, along with hundreds of others. I had the impression we were gathered from our homes, placed on a ship and dropped off to fend for ourselves. None of the others wanted to stick together, so … Continue reading Passing the Gardens of Earthly Delights
