My daughter and I learned we can make video phone calls from our computer. We got Skype. I was fooling around on it trying to make my first phone call. It worked unfortunately my daughter was in bed in her PJ's and her husband was not ready for the call. They turned off their video equipment really fast. My video was not clear and I did not have a working microphone. My daughter's voice came in crystal clear thru the computer speakers. All in all it was a little embarrassing but also a fun learning experience. We hope to get better at the video calls and I am going to get a better microphone. Have you ever made a video phone call?

I have taken to riding a bus lately. The local town I work in has expensive parking. Parking fees take in almost half of my pay. I discovered I can take the bus and pay 1/2 the fare. At first I was a little anxious about taking the bus but I am starting to get use to it. The people that ride the bus hare a colorful class of people. Most are friendly and almost all thank the bus driver for the ride when they are exiting the bus. I have not put gas in my car for over 2 weeks and I have 3/4 of a tank still in it. When is the last time you rode a bus?

There is a virus going around the Internet created by Antivirus Action. It is an advertisement for anti-virus software. Unfortunately the virus is created by Antivirus Action itself. It locks up your computer until you buy their product. I lost $69.99 on this deal. You can check it by googling Antivirus Action. Have you had a computer virus lately?

It is treason because they stole the tree son. My graduating class purchased a memorial in our local city park. They had a little gathering to dedicate a tree that was placed there in order to remember our passed classmates. Yep! The tree was stolen after two days. For some reason knowing some of the students that passed I get they are smiling and got a kick out of that. There is a reward to capture the tree thief and a replacement tree was put in its place just in case it will not be returned. If it is we will have a pair of memorial trees. Have you any stories like this or about trees?

I am getting in the moving mood. I want a bigger place to live and I may have found it. I was looking at a new washer and dryer too! I went shopping and told the salespeople I was looking for the easiest washer and dryer to use. I want the least amount of things to turn and push. I found a Whirlpool that seems like the best price and not a lot of buttons and bells. How are your appliances and are you happy where you are living now?

Today I was reminded of blue tires. I use to own a 1991 Blue HD Motorcycle. I went to the HD dealer because I needed new tires. I saw a tire that had blue stripes on it. I thought they would look cool on my bike. I rode around with those blue tires until they wore out. The blue had faded and I was disappointed in them because of that. I went to my friends house and he just bought motorcycle tires that had the blue stripe on them. To my astonishment he took a hose and cleaned the blue off the tires. I asked him what did he do that for? He said, "you don't leave the blue on the tires you always wash them off". I said, "I did not do that because they matched my blue bike". He was amazed and told me he thought I did not wash my tires because I was lazy. I never bought blue tires again. I felt pretty stupid but I still think they made my motorcycle look cool. Have you ever had a blue tire experience?
