Onesome: Daylight– Savings Time is up here in the US this weekend. Ready? Set? Go? …or will you just wake up and worry about it sometime Sunday? I will just wake up and worry about it on Sunday. Or maybe even set my clocks before going to bed…but I doubt it.

Twosome: Savings–? Hey, do you use coupons when you shop? …and do you go looking for them online?
I don’t really like to use coupons any more. Coupons are such as hassle and it seems like the cashier always screws up when I use them.

Threesome: Time– to batten down the hatches where you are? They’ve had snow in Ohio and Ottawa; and we may not hit the 80’s this weekend in CaliLand: is Winter approaching for you?
I have not prepared for winter yet. It has been a little cooler here in Missouri but nothing too horrible. I have not even used my heat yet but I probably should have for a few days.

Thursday Threesome: Technology Marches On

Thursday Threesome: Just checking in

Onesome: Just– the Cell Phone? …and no land line? How does it pencil out for you: do you need to have both a cell phone and a home phone in your life? How about down the road? Do you see yourself disconnecting from the hard-wired connection?
Currently I only have a cell phone. I shut off our land line at home awhile back because it was an unneeded expense. I might reconnect it in the future but I doubt it. I prefer to use my cell phone.

Twosome: Checking– accounts, a thing of the past or something that will be around for a while? I’m wondering how much we’re coming around to debit cards and online payments…
I still have a checking account but I don’t write many checks from it (maybe 3 or 4 a month at the most). I prefer to do online payments or pay with my debit or credit cards.

Threesome: In– the same vein: how about the net itself? If you’re on it for basic communications then what happens when your handheld device becomes your email/chat/and voice communication system? Do you bail from the hardwired home links when wifi becomes just a little more ubiquitous? …and before you answer, check in with any teen you see walking down the street with their head in the Net!
I don’t use my cell phone for email or for surfing the web. I use it to send text messages now and then and to make/take phone calls. I use my desktop and laptop for instant messaging, email, Ventrillo and other ways to communicate with the ones I care about.

Onesome: Dodge–? …as in “Get outa’? Okay, so tomorrow is Friday: where would you go to “get out of Dodge” for a day (if you could, that is)? If it was only for one day then I would like to go to Branson, Missouri and see the new Titanic Museum. I would love to see all the artifacts from the ship. If I was able to get away for three or more days then I would like to go to Wisconsin.

Twosome: Parry–? What’s your best comeback? …and yeah, “Oh, yeah?” doesn’t count !
I think my best comeback is “whatever”. LOL I don’t have any others that I can think of.

Threesome: Block– Parties: do you have them? Apartment get togethers count too. Oh, heck, even dorm keggers, -eh?
I don’t have parties…I am too old LOL. But my family, friends and I use to have Bonfire Parties…it was a blast. Ahhh the good old days.

Thursday Threesome: Your Mileage May Vary

PLEASE NOTE: This is from Dan’s October 2, 2008 post. I did not see one posted for today.

Onesome: Your– ability to see beyond the horizon is limited only by your imagination. Discuss !
Hummm….let me think about that. My imagination needs time to run away from me.

Twosome: mileage may– be lower for some drivers due to variables like under-inflated tires or speeding up to get to the next red light. Hmmm… Any tips out there for those trying to stretch their fuel dollars?
Don’t go anywhere unless you have too.

Threesome: Vary– this, vary that, and pretty soon you’ve broken up a routine. Here’s one: what routine of yours really needs to have a little variation introduced? (I’ll exclude changing the flavor of your Friday evening ice cream snack; while a little change may be good, radical events should be planned out!)
I need a new job in Wisconsin! That will totally break all my routines!

Thursday Threesome: Yellow Brick Road

The Thursday Threesome: Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road

Onesome: “Goodbye,–Norma Jean”? Hmmm…. Best song ever? …or did he top himself when he adapted it for Princess Diana? I think it was better in its original form. Adapting it for Princess Diana made is special but it seemed to make it almost too specific to her.

Twosome: Yellow–lights: run ’em or slam on the brakes? …or do you plan your speed so you never hit them yellow? …or maybe, “What yellow light, Officer?” ! I usually run the yellow light unless a car ahead of me does…then I slam on the brakes and wait for the red light. I have always been told that “three can go through on yellow” but I am not taking that chance! 🙂

Threesome: Brick Road–s and flying monkeys? Okay, did those things just creep you out? …or were you one of those people who really, really, really wanted one for a pet? Just askin’… I would never want one as a pet. They were a little creepy! I could use them to scare my neighbors away LOL

Thursday Threesome: Connectivity

The Thursday Threesome: Loss of Connectivity

Onesome: Loss– of appetite? Have you ever been invited to an event where the food just was too terrible to even pretend to like? What was your solution? …I mean, besides holding out for a burger on the way home !
Not that I can remember.

Twosome: of– the last three days, we’ve lost Net access in Central CaliLand most of the time. I’m thinking it has to do with the lack of a State budget out here. Do you have long periods of disconnect where you are?
Not that I am aware of.

Threesome: Connectivity:–, addiction or necessity? Is the Net essential to your daily activities (yes, work counts!)? …or would you even notice if someone cut the wire? Both. It is necessary for work and for keeping in touch with family and friends. It is an addiction for gaming.

Thursday Threesome: Memories

Thursday Threesome
::Memories from the Past::
Hosted by Dan at “The Back Porch


Onesome: Memories from– a few years back: what were you doing on 9-11? I had driven my children to school and was at home trying to take a nap. My sister-in-law came in a little after 9:00am and woke me. She and I spent the morning watching the news. We also picked up our kids early from school and came back home to watch the news the rest of the day/night. My brother was over the road driving at the time and Steve was at work on Post. Post was locked down.

Twosome: the– thought occurs: Should this be a holiday? …or perhaps a day of remembrance with a moment of silence nationwide? I think it should be a Day of Remembrance. Everyone should remember it as they see fit.

Threesome: Past– ‘days that will live in infamy’: do you recall any other days of tragedy that have a placeholder on your mental calendar? I have several days of tragedy marked on my mental calendar but they are mostly personal. Such as my mom’s death, dad’s death and my grandparents’ deaths.
