Making the Most of Your PC

miriam Monday, October 22nd, 2012

I’ve heard it estimated that over 365 million people around the world own a computer, including desktops, laptops, Apples and PCs. Although that number sounds very impressive, it will surely continue to rise in this technology driven society. Computers are simply everywhere, and are needed for school, work, communication and recreation. Unfortunately, computers indefinitely have problems, but most of us don’t know how to fix them.

cell phones for soldiersPhone companies have been around for nearly 140 years. Back then, it was an amazing feat to hear a voice talking on the other end of the phone line. Fast forward to the present day, and phone companies provide you with land line or cell phone service, high speed internet service, high definition picture taking capabilities, GPS navigation, and much more. Although this list is impressive, I found one phone company that’s doing even more.

Do It Yourself

Do It Yourself

In general, computers are expensive to purchase, and often times even more expensive to maintain. Technology moves so fast these days, it’s hard to keep up on the latest and greatest when it comes to speed, ram, memory and other such things. If you take your computer to a repair center, the cost of such repairs or upgrades could be quite high. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could do the repairs yourself?

Love your Gadgets AND the Earth?

miriam Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

recycled gadgetsIt’s no secret that recently technology has encouraged the collection and consumption of electronics of every shape and size. Everywhere you look, you see people on their hand held devices checking email, playing games, chatting with friends, and making phone calls. It seems like those of us that don’t have any of these gadgets are in the minority now. This technology craze has also created a division between those who thrive on it, and those who are more focused on simple living and earth friendly practices. Is is possible to satisfy both sides of this issue?

Super Puppy

When my husband and I had been married for almost a year, he began talking about getting a dog. I had never owned a dog, and although I wasn’t opposed to the idea of owning a dog, I wasn’t sure if I could ever learn to really love a dog. Low and behold, less than 2 years later, we were the proud owners of an adorable 6 week old mastiff/boxer mix puppy. We named her Maya and she instantly became the center of our world. When Halloween came around, I became one of those people who I used to make fun of that dressed their dog up in a costume. She won first prize in a doggie costume contest and we have dressed her up ever since.

Growing up in the nineties, I knew what the word layaway meant, but I never saw anyone actually use it. My parents were the type who either bought something when they needed it, or didn’t buy it at all. Some adults I knew would put things on credit cards, and then pay them off later. Unfortunately, there are negatives associated with both of these scenarios. With my parents, they often times bought things when they couldn’t afford them, or missed out on deals because they didn’t have enough money at the time. Those who bought things on credit ended up paying more for them than their upfront cost. Now that I’m adult, I see that layaway is the perfect answer to both of these scenarios.

College Football is in the Air!

miriam Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

college footballAlthough I love summer with all the traveling, swimming, camping and relaxing, I think I love fall just as much. The days start to get a little cooler, the leaves start to change, and there is a crispness in the air preparing us for the winter which will be here before we know it. Millions of kids, teenagers and college students return to school with high hopes of a great year. All of these events are fun and exciting, but it’s not what I love most about the fall. I absolutely love watching college football with friends, eating good food, and sharing in the excitement that inevitably follows.
