4 Chairs

I have seen many things on my morning walks, from all the wildlife in the area including rabbits, raccoons, skunks, birds of all sorts, opossums and some deer. I have also seen a number of different kinds of people. I like to people watch and my morning walk gives me […]

Fixing this WordPress site

For a couple of months my blog was down. I take complete responsibility. I was adding plugins, everything was working fine until I logged out and couldn’t log back in. I think it had something to do with the functions.php file I edited. During a plugin install, it was suggested that I […]


A public transit peeve worse than any other

As I have posted before,  I often take public transit in the form of the bus.  I have several times posted about my “pet peeves” regarding public transit. Just recently, I discovered there was one I left out that is more irksome than any other.   I don’t always expect […]

Taste of Larchmont (NY)

Not too long ago I signed my wife and I up for an event called “Taste of Larchmont.”  It was a tasting of 7 local restaurants with almost all the proceeds going to a woman’s shelter,  My Sister’s Place.  We had to purchase the tickets in advance,  so one would […]

The best feature of Android 5.x – Lollipop (yes there is one)   Recently updated !

When I first upgraded to Lollipop from KitKat, I could find nothing beneficial about the upgrade, beyond the cool factor of course.  Several of my applications would either not work or would crash intermittently for no apparent reason.  These apps were NOT all ones I installed and I expected a […]

I don’t pretend top be an expert at this, but I have found a couple of things that are useful. I would hope that sharing them here will help others, so they will not have to face some rather hard choices. Let me preface this by saying the best prevention […]


Samsung “help” bricks phone

I do push my phones to the limit and I am an early adopter.  As my father pointed out, I seem to always be complaining about how a recent OS update did something I didn’t like.  When an update was pushed by VZW to my HTC a couple of years […]

Avery CD/DVD Label Fiasco   Recently updated !

This all started some years ago when I thought I would make my life easier and purchased an Item called the CD Stomper kit made by Avery and sold in Staples.  When I bought it the company had already discontinued it, but it was a good deal, so I thought […]
