Finally 5g is coming to the home. This is the real reason I'm looking forward to the new service. See the following article regarding the t-mobile product. If you live near a t-mobile tower, this might work for you!

We've tried quite a few masks - most wouldn't stop a germ if it had to!
I've concluded that a reusable mask with a filter pocket is the way to go. I recently found this mask at a reasonable price. The mask alone is pretty poor, but when adding the 5-layer filter, I hope it's effectiveness is good. The good things about this mask is that it fits me, the nose part stays in place, and it has filter pocket accessible from both ends. These were ordered from https://www.reusablefc.com/
Amazon is a good place for large quantities of the filters - we change them daily.
We found this puzzle online and ordered the 100 piece version from Amazon. It is laser cut wood with no indication of where the pieces might go - except for a faint wood grain. Trying to find that first piece was a challenge. After working on it for four days - on and off - successful! We're trying it again, but this time we've rotated it 180 degrees. It now seems harder! It's called a DevilPuzzle and is very well made. There are other versions out there. We may be forced to try the even harder version.
The things we do in isolation!!

I suppose these would also be nice in the Summer.
I use their inexpensive security camera - only $19!. Well worth the price. They have couple of new products about to be shipped - a digital watch and digital scales.

This document suggest ways to remove that odor.
There have been more internet posts lately about password security. New thinking indicates a long phrase (something you can remember) of non-related words might offer the best defense of password hacking. I have used this concept when creating my most important passwords.
Here is a site that will generate passwords based upon user input of a phrase format. I suggest you revise your email passwords to follow something like this. It is better than using initials and birthdates!

I used a Mac in my last position at SWBT/SBC/ATT and liked many things about it. But after retirement, all the Mac goodies became too expensive to buy outright, so I sold my Mac and stayed with the PC. Besides, all the people that needed help on computers only had Windows AND the software was cheap and easily copied to use on all machines.
Some time ago I "forced" myself to use less of Windows and more of Mac. I just "knew" the Mac was not better than the PC, but I wanted to experiment to make sure. I secured an older Mac Mini and have been using it almost always for my computing needs. I am now a convert. So much so that I rarely switch to the Windows PC. I've also found that the various free Linux OSs are quite fast and provide a plethora of open-source (i.e., FREE) software for a variety of uses. Anyway, the "forced" use of a Mac is no longer. I like the Mac. And, I like the iPhone. I've discovered the iPhone is easier to use, and the updates rarely cause problems. But the Android OS IS prettier.
My Mac Mini, MacBook Air (thank you Dave Keeney), iPad Air (thank you Donna), iPhone 7+, and iPhone SE are all previously used - refurbished by either Apple or some other provider. They all look and behave like new AND each is several hundred dollars cheaper than new. So now I live in an Apple universe, but also keep my homemade and superfast Windows 10 computer updated with the latest releases - just to keep current with Windows problems.
There you have it. The reason I'll probably post more about Apple than Microsoft on this blog.
