Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

Today:
  1. two conference calls
  2. a recording to get transcribed
  3. posting or getting as close as I can to posting something on linkedin

This linkedin piece is interesting. I am the harmed party, defrauded $129 in a crowdfunding scheme that raised $2.7 million dollars. Yet, a few of the voices in my head caution me, "don't do this, people will call you a fool and laugh at you."

Isn't that something? Someone tricks over 20,000 thousand people into sending them money for a product they have no intention of making, but it's the 20,000 that a few bullies will attack. Well, I guess the scammers are sliding bullies their cut to keep the discerning at bay.

Kudos for standing up for what you justice. And on finishing your advanced directive. (It made me feel a bit weepy, and I've never met you in person. I have day dreams about getting published and going on book tours, and visiting all the people I know who don't live near me.)

But I digress.

My steps for today - an online doctor's appointment, and some editing.

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

I'm starting to get a bit squirrel ish from not being around my in-person friends for so long. I have a zoom group in a couple of hours. I'm going to brave zoom again. If all they can do is send emails to me with attachments that shouldn't be opened, I'm okay. Plus I think hosting the meeting was what triggered the threats.

Meanwhile - the doctor I talked to deals with sleeping disorders. I haven't slept well in years. So the thought of a lot of good nights has me hopeful.

Otherwise - same o same o.

Happy stepping along.

Default Ta Done

On Monday felt, oh, this is a new decisive mood.
On Tuesday, I put calling dental surgeon on my list.
On Wednesday, I looked over my biorhythms to find my strongest days.
On Thursday, my companion and I mapped out open times.
On Friday, I made the appointment.

Ta Done! x 5.
Yuck list stuff, as I'm not going gentle under the knife.

Default Interesting Tip from DocJohn

Hello folks migrating from Barbara Sher's forums. I had a nice personal message of welcome from DocJohn, the site's founder. He happened to know about archive.org that works to preserve much of the internet. He shared the link for their record of the whole Barbara Sher site in May 2019.


BarbaraSher.com Index page That's a snapshot of the content from May 2019.


Not that bad, huh?

Default Very Sad News

Barbara lived as she coached. She worked hard, helped many, lived well, and I hope died contented.

Revu2 or Lynx on her site.

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

I checked out the Barbara Sher link. A blast from the past - that's the best way to describe it. I was expecting a page, not a whole month.

So about me - I'm getting sucked into to the stay at home and do nothing mode. It feels okay, but I can tell it's not good for me. Tomorrow, I'll have a couple of errands to do.. usually, once I get outside, my energy goes up, and I can get things done.

Today, however, will be a garbage day. I did get some editing done, and a wee bit of gardening in. Maybe I'll do some more editing, or clean a room or write a letter or all of the above before I hunker down and watch TV.

I took a few steps backwards with my editing. I found a place on the Internet that said you almost never put a comma after "and" So I used "find and replace" to remove any commas that came after "and" or "but". In case you're not bored with punctuation, (I am.) the commas in question came when a clause followed the "and" and "but" - as in - And, in spite of my better judgement, I removed the commas. Took another look at the grammar rules, and, sure enough, the commas belonged in the sentence., so I've spent the last few days, adding all the commas back in. (Which takes a lot longer than removing them.)

Hope I'll be more productive tomorrow.

Default Oxford Comma

Delightful, you're grappling with the Oxford comma. And also the oft quoted line that a writer worked hard all day. Spent the morning putting in a comma, and the afternoon taking it out.

Here's the Comma Queen on the topic: YouTube
