About 10 days or so ago, I had a bit of an emergency in which I needed some cash. As it turned out, I was not near any of my local bank branches. Since time was absolutely of the essence, I decided to withdraw some money from the nearest 7-Eleven convenient store ATM. Read the rest of this entry »
Hello My Friends,
In light of recent world events, I decided to re-post the following list of personal codes of conduct, by which to live, that are commonly referred to as the Native American Code of Ethics.
These principles are simple yet powerful, demanding yet gracious, timely and yet timeless.
I post them here as a token of my respect for the past, my appreciation of the present, and my hope for the future.
NATIVE AMERICAN CODE OF ETHICS
Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak. Read the rest of this entry »
The following tip comes to us from SimpleHelp.net. It’s definitely a keeper.
HOW TO INCREASE THE SIZE OF THE MENU BARS IN WINDOWS 10
With just a few clicks, you can resize the “menus” in Windows 10 so that they’re much more visible (and way easier to click and/or “tap”). This is particularly helpful if you’re using Windows 10 on a tablet or touch-screen device. Read the rest of this entry »
The other day, I discovered Daily Craigslist App, an iOS utility that just happens to work wonderfully with VoiceOver, Apple’s software screen reading solution for the blind and low vision..
This app allows you to easily browse Craig’s List on your iOS device.
Below is a link to the free version of the app but there is an ads-free version available, as well.

Thanks to my trusty Smartphone app, in conjunction with my favorite web browser, I have resolved several issues with companies with whom I do business including Samsung, AT&T, Apple, my local water company, one of my banking services, a local restaurant chain, a grocery store, and a shopping facility (just to name a few) via Twitter.

If you want to have Siri speak your current location, as of iOS 8.3 or later, simply say, “Tell me where I am” or ask, “Where am I?”
One of my friends, until now, has fervently refused to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my suggestions to the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister’s house, approximately 800 miles away. Read the rest of this entry »
In the olden-days, back when Windows Mobile 6.1 was the latest and greatest mobile OS on the planet, as it ran flawlessly on my beloved Samsung Blackjack 2, during the hustle and bustle of daily life, I would sometimes, very rarely mind you, find myself taking out my frustrations on my wireless device, said device being referred to these days as a Feature Phone, by, let us say, pressing the keys a little more enthusiastically than normal (smile).

I have recently become a huge fan of both the CVS Pharmacy website and, more importantly to me, the CVS iOS App.
As an F.Y.I., in the area in which I live, there are over 11 CVS Pharmacies staffed with some of the nicest pharmacists and pharmacy technicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. These people really care about their customers.
I am posting this to let you know that the CVS Pharmacy iOS app is marvelously accessible via VoiceOver, Apples’ software screen reading solution for the blind and low vision.
For the first time in my life, I can independently access and manage all of my prescriptions with confidence and privacy.
To iOS VoiceOver users, whether you’re a new customer or a dedicated, longtime fan of the company, grab the app, setup an online account via either the app or their website and enjoy.
A heart-felt thanks to CVS Pharmacy for making medicine more manageable for the blind and low vision.

The number of brick & mortar stores in my area that accept Apple Pay transactions via the NFC protocol is relatively high. As a result, I find myself using my iPhone to make purchases at least once a week, sometimes even more. Read the rest of this entry »
