    Old way to cope with allergy

    It occurred to me this morning some of us old timers may still have an old fashioned way of coping with allergy drainage! Do you still have some handkies, also known as handkerchiefs, around? If you run out of tissues, dig the hankies out and use them as being cloth they can be washed and reused.

    Hair & nails anyone?

    I have "The Talk" on on TV and they got to comparing how they are doing without their hair and makeup artists and how grateful they are for those peoples skills. Any comment about salons being closed anyone?

    Live Transcribe used for virtual church service

    I have been using Live Transcribe for what my Pastor and anyone else using a mic says during church services for some time. Something said by someone out in the congregation without a mic is not distinct enough for it to be picked up though. But yesterday I got to try something new! During...

    A new thing to grin about from TV captioning

    Watching local and news and one of the things that came up in the captioning was "wash hands with hope and water". It was quickly corrected to "soap and water". But it did give me a grin and I wanted to share it.

    Suggestions for best mic for Live Transcribe

    I have been using Live Transcribe from soon after it came out. I do like it and use it fairly regularly. It is great for my Pastor's voice (he uses a mic connected to thee regular sound system) but it does not want to pickup things said by members of the congregation (they do not have a mic)...

    I come from a small town in Southern Illinois where it has been celebrated the last weekend in October NOT always on the 31st depending on when the 31st falls.It has changed somewhat over the years since the 1920's.

    Saw "Boxing for Parkinsons" story on TV

    I saw part of a story on Channel 5 out of St. Louis early this morning but was in the midst of getting ready so did not get all the details. It is the first time I have seen it on TV here. It got me to wondering if Reba is still able to do it. She seemed to find it soooo helpful earlier.

    Did any of you use captions on the CBS Special Report in the morning on 03-25-19?

    I had to laugh when the captions said Obstetrics & Gynecology where they intended obstruction of justice. It was very quickly changed but I, at least, got a good laugh before they did.

    Remember hearing aids in eye glass temples?

    For some reason I thought of these when seeing a TV ad about hearing aids that are almost invisible. I think they were around in the 1970's but am not sure when they came out and when they disappeared. Anyway I assume they disappeared as I have not seen anything about them for many years. My...

    Thought some might enjoy this article about a new "molar mike"

    After seeing this "Incoming wireless signals beam directly into the mouth and are converted by the chip into mechanical energy, which imperceptibly vibrates the tooth and travels up through the jawbone –- essentially bypassing the ears — directly into the brain’s auditory nerves" as part of an...

    Traded - One Problem for Another?

    I have just read another story about a youngster left in the back seat of a car. It seems like I am reading about this much more often than I ever did about what happened to kids riding in the front seat. Have we traded one problem for another with much more danger now? I am old enough that...

    Ms. or Mrs follwed by first name still feels weird to me

    Just saw someone use it on TV and I am wondering about others reacting like I do. It still feels weird to me. If a title like Ms. or Mrs. is used I expect it to be with the last name. I do get the impression that the use with the first name has come out of the far south. Any of you want to...

    People or $ for movies?

    Just saw another TV report about how much different movies earned over the weekend. It got me to wondering once again if the number of people going was ever compared for different movies over the years rather that $ amount of ticket sales. Ticket prices have generally gone up over the years so...
