Tomorrow I hear we are suppose to get a slam dunk of snow, it's headed this way. It is already coming down in Ohio. Boy I am hoping it passes over us, just skip on over and bring on spring because that's what I am waiting on. This evening I received an automated phone call from our electric company and it seems they are calling everyone in advance of the storm because of pending down power lines. Oh boy, if that happens, it will be downright stupid up in here. But you know what, this is the first time that our electric company has done this. What did they do, make over a million calls to individual customers? Can you imagine that? I am hoping we do not lose power of any kind; lines and trees, please stay in place.Thank goodness for the fireplace and wood. Think I am going to make some good ole comfort food tomorrow....chilli.
As I said earlier, I have been playing around with my tablet. I was trying to find the right apps to download that would let me add smileys and emoticons to my messages. You would think that would have been an easy task...wrong! I don't know how many apps I uploaded only to have to uninstall them because they didn't work. What I did find to work, worked on my stand-by-me computer and not my tablet. Today, I even uploaded a cute little squirrel app, that was suppose to talk and interact with you. I had to get my granddaughter to show me how to use it. Come to find out, what I uploaded/downloaded was something for a phone. Crap, had to uninstall it. But, it was so cute. I have an interactive cat on my computer that's so cute, it waves at me. I just have to figure out how to make it really work, it is suppose to talk, but it ain't talkin....yet. I figured my grand kids would get a kick out of that.
This evening on Facebook, I was chatting with my girlfriend from back home, and she has a tablet too. She just figured out that she has a voice recorder on hers, and guess what, I could hear her. That was so neat. I was smiling as soon as I heard her voice. I have to check to see if I have the same thing, or see if I can get it so we can talk our heads off. We are going to be two giggling fools, just like teenagers. I'm gonna see if she can Tango on her tablet. I can do that. That's a neat app, lets you have a video chat phone call. I've already talked to my family in Texas on it. It was FUN, I saw my grandchildren in action and heard them too. Now you can't beat that!
Well, my tablet is charging right now. I gotta get it ready for tomorrow's use.I just have to figure out why I have to charge it so often now. When I first got it, it would stay charged up all day long. This is the second time today. Now that isn't right. I think my next electronic purchase is going to be an Ipad. I am turning out to be an electronic junkie. I want, I want, I want!!!!
Keep your fingers crossed that the big snow and down power lines do not hit here, or anywhere. I would be up a creek without a paddle if my cyberspace devices are out of whack because of the pending storm. Guess I will have to read a book....hey, that's not a bad idea.
Oh, this is something else I did today with my tablet, take a look.
