In The Year 2012

Think bendable flexible screens that zoom in and out of the picture, with a twist of the wrist!  That's the technology now a days.  TV everywhere.  Thin as cardboard laptops,  the personal computer is moving aside for the ~ "Personal Cloud".

$50 LED light bulbs that last for 50 years.  Nice you nay not have to change not one light bulb more.
On the go mobile payment with just a swipe of your smart phone, and no more need for a wallet. 
Google smart glasses and computers that have touch, gesture recognition, or voice control are all the rage.

E-car revolutions and the new platform from Amazon Kindle Fire moving to takeover ipad sales by the end of 2012.  Square iphone dongle domination?  Invasion of a frictionless sharing facebook community,  everyone will know what book you are reading, where you are reading it, right down to the word you are reading right now.  Brutal slow readers. Tweet it.

Yes, it's amazing how fast things change, and a few months from now we may hear about HTML5, so I hear.  One APP love. @Dropbox is appealing to me this very minute!

Until next time.  Peace.

Movers and Shakers~!

Yes, spring has sprung, even as the snow still seems to fly periodically.  If springtime inspires you perhaps to make a move or change, eat more salads and overall invigorate you, then you are not alone.

After winter slowly goes away,  I tend to start planning for vacation or trips, take my exercises more seriously and maybe even moving to a new place.  I also like to start to think or make a draft of my balcony garden plan.  I like to draw it out and imagine all the produce I might be able to grow.  Most times, I do start some indoor gardening before spring time.  I grow sprouts and get other seedlings started.  I like people with hobbies that improve their lives such as gardening.

I like to get an exercise schedule figured out and stick to it when spring comes.  I even eat more healthy food and make a lot more smoothies or salads.  It's time to more the body and get some inches off that were stored up over winter time.  Perhaps, I set more resolutions in the spring time than at New Year's and so I find that interesting.  Maybe it's all the fresh air.

Some people are changing jobs these days in the spring time, perhaps reading about more exciting jobs gets one thinking.  But in the meantime, while at the same place and if you are a little bored these days here are some ways to help you concentrate and not become bored at work.

Hope this helps~!

Time Flies

Happy April Fool's Day~!

It's already been a month since my last post and well into spring.  So, that's good but honestly it's been a busy past month with work, business, hobbies, and really more to come. I have lots of spring time things to do, and get prepared for camping.
If you don't know that camping is a hot topic around here, then I will prepare you well it used to be. Now it seems I go camping a lot less, since money can be an issue when it comes to spending nearly $500 to go out to a site and camp in the wilderness a bit.  It all adds up including picking up groceries for a long weekend.

Money is always something that we discuss to make our trips as thrifty as possible, so that we can afford to go as many times in the summer as we can.  There may be less of that this year, as I have been looking at a different places in the world to go to, such as an Alaskan cruise.  Maybe not this year but sometime that or a trip to Italy would definitely take care of a couple ideas on my bucket list.

Every Sunday afternoon this last couple months, I have spent some time watching NCAA and NBA basketball games.  I have been enjoying the tournaments and I rarely miss a Los Angeles Lakers or Boston Celtics games.  Kobe Bryant is an amazing player, even with a broken nose this spring. World Peace just knocked down a 3 pointer, which should bring the Laker's way ahead of The Warriors. The Miami Heat, New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns are fairly entertaining teams as well.  But sports IS a big distraction and it takes time and focus away on real issues in the world that are going on.

 The Volvo Ocean Race this spring was riveting, men and women snowboarding and skiing are fun to watch. Shawn White is cool to  watch what he can do on a snowboard.  Also,  I used to watch more UFC.  I have sort of quit watching since Chuck Liddell is no longer in the game. If I wanted I suppose I could catch some old matches on You Tube, but I tend to try to do some extra work or gardening.  Anyways, just looking at a lot of it lets me see how much time I waste and then that is why time flies.

Have a great week!
