Stream of Consciousness Saturday–M


My computer is back! Yay! It is lighter weight and so is better for my lap. I had been borrowing my husband’s. That was nice of him and he followed through to find what was wrong and it seems it needed a different charging cord. I haven’t checked out the  yWriter and WriteItNow to see if my latest NaNo is up to the last date I worked on it, but I know where I can find the files to get it there.

MY COMPUTER! It is like that most comfortable coat or pair of shoes that when you put them on there is MAGIC.

I couldn’t find a laptop picture that shows my comfort level with my own, lightweight, machine. That one on the bottom left is closest. Except it isn’t a couch but rather a recliner. Not a massaging chair but a place of comfort where I can sit in my favorite position of half-lotus and either lap the laptop or use the foot of the chair as a desk. So a heavy laptop can hurt my legs and then hurt my arms as I move it.

Medical shows are my favorites. While I am writing this I have discovered a new one. Transplant. No, it doesn’t start with M but my Stream seems to migrate to the show. So I’m sharing. I am loving this!

And that brings me back to the happiness of working on MY COMPUTER!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with ‘m’.” Use any word that begins with the letter “m” as the subject or theme for your post. Enjoy!

Filmage Friday


Here is what I’ve been watching lately. It is very bland but it grows on you.

It’s on Netflix, by the way.

Throw-Back Thursday


I know that Throw-Back Thursday is about pictures of ourselves in younger less dignified days, but the physical body only holds onto all the stuff our beings have been through our whole lives.

John Holton shares lots of music that I and other babyboomers remember with fondness on his blog. He mentioned Lloyd Thaxton the other day on The Sound of One Hand Typing. Regardless of the music I suddenly thought of the line that Lloyd Thaxton ended his show, “Always smile with your bottom teeth.” As happens often at my age I doubted my memory and needed to Google whether it was Lloyd … or maybe Soupy Sales.

I fell down the YouTube rabbit hole. My day was spent watching and laughing at the crazy Supman. A good place to get started is his biography.

My brother and my son and I watched and laughed so hard. At first, my son couldn’t remember Soupy. But I tried to explain that he was Pee Wee before there was Chairy. Finally, I just had to put the YouTubes on the TV. If you need a day to escape the crazies, this will do it!

Meanwhile, I searched all over for Lloyd Thaxton saying, “Smile with your bottom teeth!” That he ended his show with on occasion. That sent me down another memory rabbit hole. Remember this?

That was when I fell in love with Motown, and lipsyncing. What a fun show it was.

In my search, I learned that Lloyd passed in 2006. Maybe I knew and forgot? But it made me sad all over again.

By the way, Lloyd Thaxton had a blog. You can find it here.

Grammarly VS One-Liner


Well. There you go. It looks just like the corrections Grammarly gives me in my own writing. You all probably already see how I live on the run-on sentence. I try to fix it, but it is how I talk. I did not write the quote. That was a capture from a share on Facebook. And ‘is done’ is when the whole thing got underlined to be rewritten.

By the way, I used the Snipping Tool for that capture. I’m hoping others can see and read it better than my old eyes. Hopefully, you get the idea.


Found on Facebook:

That fencer-x does a spectacular one-liner!

Thanks Yve for the idea. And Linda G Hill for the prompt.

How I Managed to Post My Review


I wrote and posted the review in GoodReads. Then I copied and pasted the URL as the cursor is pointing to here:

See where the cursor is pointing? Then I followed this method to get to the classic editor so I could get the results I usually get before block editor.

 

I’m putting this here to help me remember how I got there. And hopefully, help others that feel a little lost. Block works for me on the phone but in trying to copy and place my review it wasn’t working on the laptop. But yay! Wraparounds!

Sorry for the poor quality of pictures. My cell isn’t the best camera.

Well, On My Phone…


I found classic editor up in the three dots to the right of PUBLISH. See screen shot below.

Mine is an android phone if that helps. The three dots change after the selection of classic editor to the next screenshot.

I hope that helps others who are trying to figure it out. I’ll play with the laptop version next time I need a break from knitting. 😁

Happy Sunday!

One-liner Wednesday


This prompt should be easy as pie, if only I could find the ingredients!

One-liner Wednesday is a Linda G. Hill creation.

I hear great one-liners all week. Even today I heard a couple on The 100. Did I write them down? Nope. By the way, I’m on my second watching. I can’t wait to see the new season!

Monday Makings


Three hats, a earwarmer convertible fingerless mittens.
And four socks. Busy. Busy, Busy!

Sunday Socks


Finished these today. About a shoe size 9 ladies. Wool. Made on Hers (KB His/Hers–orange looms). Kitchener cast-on, flat knit-stitch, German Short-row heel, four-by-four knit/purl, ribbed cuff. For my charity, Hugger Hats.

The color looks orange, but it is more rust brown.

I’ve started convertible fingerless mittens with the last of this yarn. I hope it works out.
