Getting rid of the cat.

Well trying to get rid of him anyway. I’ve posted on a group for rehoming pets on FB, and put an ad on Craigslist. So far, no one has responded. I’m going to call the shelter on Monday, to see if they’ll send someone to come get him. Melissa won’t take him, (technically she doesn’t … [Read more…]

My trip to the dentist.

30 day challenge update.

I did 14 minutes on the elliptical yesterday. This happened because I set the phone timer for 12 minutes, but took a bit too long to get on. I ended up canceling the timer and thought it was going to be reset automatically, but it wasn’t. By the time I got off to see how … [Read more…]

I talked about the Windows 10 anniversary update, and Windows 10 upgrades in general, in this first episode. Unfortunately something strange happened, and the … [Read more…]
