I got everything done on yesterday's list. The housekeeping is sketchy, and not good enough for company, but it's good enough for me. Okay, back to editing. I should be done with the comma snafu by the end of the day.

Everyone, good wishes to you.

Default 5-21

Today's steps: one call and two online conference calls; check out car battery (light came on) + window washer fluid levels; & process turkey tail mushrooms we just picked. Processing is boiling down for an hour then adding 95% alcohol vodka in a jar with a tight lid. The last part is letting it sit for 5 weeks, shaking once a day.

Plus, take a sign in for remaking to Fedex.

Much todo, bye.

Cool steps, Revu.

Me I finished the comma snafu - today, not yesterday, but I did finish it. I'm having a friend over on Tuesday - in my garden - lots of space to spread out. So that gives me a reason to get the house clean. What else? Got lost trying to find Alameda. (doctor apt.)

I'm starting to come into the light (not that light) - just the one outside my house.
Happy stepping.

Thanks for the hugs, Unaluna. Hugs back at you!

Today's adventure and steps: My Garmen (GPS) broke, and I never replaced it. Today I had to go back to Alameda. Long story somewhat shortened - Downloaded directions from Mapquest. I couldn't find the tube, finally got there by the bridge instead. Couldn't find the street I needed from the bridge. Finally found where I needed to go. Coming back, a sign said the tube leaving Alameda was closed. I couldn't find my way back to the bridge. Finally ended up back where I started and tried the tube anyway. Turns out it was open. Where it not for two kind pedestrians, I'd probably still be driving around . . . somewhere.

So my steps. - I need to figure out how to download Bluetooth from my phone, and I want to buy a paper map as a backup. (If they still exist.)

Have a good day.

Just a couple of years ago, i saw a man on the street with a paper map, and i was like, "omg, are you alright?!" He wasnt even in the right century! He was like, yeah yeah, this is a restaurant guide from my seminar! But it was funny how totally odd it seemed to me. That he seemed helpless somehow.

Default Maps

It's all about the maps. unaluna I've been watching your hugs, too, and loving them. We carry a local book of maps and I always travel with printed mapquest and google maps. Because ... we only buy cell phone service. Never ashamed to ask questions.

Today, worked on two documents needing drafting (done) and filled my brake fluid cup (done).

You got it exactly right, Unaluna. GPS became available at the beginning of this century. Just about the time I retired. It sure makes things a lot easier. I remember standing on the side of the road in the middle of the night in the rain trying to read the small print on my Thomas Bros. map. (That's when I knew I needed glasses.) No doubt about it, GPS makes life so much easier. But the thing about paper maps - if you've misspelled something or need to find a bridge that you don't know the name of, a paper map comes in handy.

Revu2 I plan to check your zoom show.

Speaking of habits, psych central is beginning to feel like home.

I'll finish the GPS/maps step today. Didn't get around to it yesterday.

Okay, I'll complete a couple of steps with editing and housekeeping, and then I'll goof around shamelessly.
Hugs to all.

Tuesday, 64th day since my state began the stay home orders.

Have a mobile mechanic via wrench.com coming today around noon to replace our alternator. At least that's what I told them. Twice the hourly fee of our regular mobile wrencher but he didn't return our calls. The check battery is on and the car is losing electrical power for accessories so we got it home and parked and await developments today.

Have some invoicing to get in, and poking around my draft articles for linked in. fit in a walk at some point and catch the 2 pm BJ Fogg tiny habits zoom webinar if the repairs are done. If you haven't caught it yet, do hurry. BJF said he will make a decision Thursday if it's worth his time for so few participants. He wants to see 200 people on the shows. If short of 200 he'll likely cancel the series.

Happy stepping to all, Revu2

Rats! I planned on checking the zoom program you talked about and kept forgetting. I'll try to remember to get there today.

I got my phone connected to the car, and installed Bluetooth. I need to do something else to actually use Bluetooth, and I don't know what it is.

Re editing: Still at it. Concerning the big comma snafu I've been reading books that have commas around clauses that follow "and" and I've been reading books that don't. It might be a British vs USA thing.

Gardening - It's the only thing I'm doing where I can actually see some success. Oh, there's failure too, but I'm seeing enough success to keep motivated. I do need external validation.
