The Little Things That Make Us Temporarily Happy

Many of my gig clients pay in cash. I also keep an old-fashioned receipt book with me.

I wouldn't put a bank app on my phone. IMO, too dangerous. Hackers, pickpockets, or whatever. If someone gets my phone, they get nothing of value. I also run a business, so none of my Band-in-a-Box customers are on my phone.

I knew a friend that had his phone hacked years ago. It took him months to get everything straightened out. Knowing that guy, I don't think he was careless about how he used us phone.

So I choose the ounce of prevention.

I like technology, but I use it judiciously.

BTW, getting in the faster lane in the grocery store is a similar joy. I also do not use the self-checkout. If I'm going to do the work so that they can hire fewer employees, they need to give me a discount.

 

Insights and incites by Notes ♫

Not in disagreement here. Tech can be hacked and there is some risk involved with all of it. Having the latest version of Android helps.  Shutting down "snooper apps" or apps that open us up to vulnerabilities helps. I only do my banking on the phone at home under a protected wifi router.

My phone requires both a 4 digit pass code and finger print recognition to let anyone into it. In addition my banking app is pass word protected, so we are going to need a crook with inside knowledge. IOW from somewhere besides my phone or he won't get in. It isn't impossible though.

Driving down US1 and getting 3 or 4 green traffic lights in a row

I hear ya there. I have dreams of owning a flying car, but then everyone else would have a flying car too which sort of defeats the purpose.;)

It would be nice if they made this for some people. A reset button would be helpful too. Did i just say that?

It amuses me how America can't get its head around the single-queue (single-line, if you must) system.

One lane, two tellers - you are NEVER in the slow lane. 

OK, you are never in the fast lane either, but at least you aren't stressing about it ... which pretty much sums up my approach to life.

I really liked this one too, though they probably didn't need some of the trash humor.

Oh, and I will never understand why anyone would want to fast-forward while having s ex with Kate Beckinsale!

Milo's ! Chuckit ! Kick Fetch showed up at my door at 8 AM . I took him and his new toy to the park and turned them both loose .

I got to laugh , he ran me into the dirt while I was trying to record him using my phone ..

That is no game of fetch .That is my dog Milo taunting and mocking me while showing me at every opportunity he can that Ole Kenny is not the boss of him .

Notice how he proudly prances like a dancing pony bobbing his head  up and down while shaking his head side to side as he approaches . Then he runs 40 yards at a break neck speed just to prove to me that I'm a slow old human 😇....

I love it 😄 If I can get to the point where I can keep up with him . Milo may whip me into shape and make me feel  like I was young again .

all the best

Kenny

Which park is that?  It looks nicer than the ones I've seen (or been to with my friend's dog).
