But He Doesn’t Act Gay

But He Doesn’t Act Gay… We all know people who have, perhaps with some difficulty and a bit of grumbling, come to accept and include a gay relative. They feel they don’t understand him or her being gay, but they somehow get beyond that because they genuinely love the family member. The love and the “family” cards typically trump the… Continue reading

Why We Chose Spotify Music Streaming Service

For many months, I’ve been pondering what music streaming service our household should use, trying to ascertain which offers the best overall service for us–not an easy task. Here-to-for we have been Pandora users. I like the simplicity of their stations concept and the ability to shuffle through the various stations you have created. However, their overall playlist offered in… Continue reading

New Workout Playlist: Paragraph 14

Paragraph 14 I hate exercising. I’ve made no secret of that all these years. Steve is an exercise-induced dopamine junkie. (I’m glad he is and wish I were.) When I finish working out, he will typically ask, “Did you have a good workout?” What does that even mean??!! I didn’t die. The workout didn’t kill me; so, does that make… Continue reading

Naturally I shot a lot of photos around the Golden Gate and thought I would share some of them on my blog. Every day began with some serious fog, which of course I absolutely love! I also got… Continue reading

They are placed around the house and work in conjunction with our home sound system. I absolutely love the Sonos speaker system. The company by-line sums up their products… Continue reading

Our “Save the Tree” Cam

Here’s another product I can rave about: the Ring Solar Cam. We have a Ring doorbell, and we really like it. When someone approaches the front door, it notifies us on the phone. We can look and see who it is. We can have a two-way conversation with them. The camera in the doorbell automatically records and sends the video… Continue reading

iOS Camera Apps and Lens Comparisons

I wondered to what extent camera apps create different images of the exact same composition when using my iPhone X camera hardware. Do they all call the same hardware functions and therefore produce the exact same image? Or, do app-specific incantations exist that voodoo the image into existence creating variance in the rendered images of the same compositions? Unsure, I… Continue reading

Trump. Treason. Traitor.

Impeach and Imprison. The news is utterly shocking. Even Fox News can not stomach Trumps servile puppetry to Putin. Impeach and Imprison! Trump, and all of the Russian agents and supporters he has employed in his administration need to be fired immediately. Impeach and Imprison!! I saw this bumper sticker on a truck at the restaurant last week. Impeach and… Continue reading
