I am having fun playing with the Note 9 and its unique stylus. Take the stylus out of the phone, and several options pop up, such as note taking, editing, and other great functions. I am not an artist; but, a person with artistic talent could have a lot of fun drawing of the huge 6.4 inch screen. But, by far, my favorite feature, given that I am a serious amateur photographer, is the ability…
One of the scariest things that happened to me in the hospital when I was in for heart surgery was the nightly wake up calls by nurses who didn’t want to be working late.

Five Reasons Vinyl Is Making a Comeback. The day the music died is the day lossless compression was invented. Music in digital form lives in some virtual universe where it can’t be touched, felt or caressed by longing fingers and hands. I have two turntables, and hundreds of vinyl records in my office. In fact, since my office is pretty tiny, the records take up almost half of the total space. I love the…
Amazon.com: Insignia NS-43DF710NA19 43-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV HDR – Fire TV Edition: Electronics. I have used TVs as computer monitors for years.
