Weekend Roundup -- 03-18 (for letter "C")
"Note from Lucy: As some of you know, I go to a natural health care doctor. He tested me, while holding my cell phone, and suggested that I wear a magnetic bracelet on my wrist while using the cell phone. Ever since then, I wear two little magnetic bracelets when I am using my cell phone or am using my ham radio, since they emit radio waves. I think I would rather be safe than sorry. TF used a hands free unit while driving. So far I haven't been able to get him to wear the magnetic bracelets.....it just isn't "manly"...."
from a Blog entry from my blogging friend, Lucy Stern, now inactive, on Cell Phone Safety,
This was about my fifth . My first Cell Phone was a Sprint, it's in a drawer someplace. Then I killed a bunch, washed one in my pocket with my clothes, dropped one, and another lost it's display (then became useful only to answer calls with).
This one, about my 5th, I dunked in my coffee cup. What was a cup of coffee doing in the cup holder where I generally keep the phone? I replaced it with a Dollar Store phone, $9.95. It had no camera.
Now I use a Galaxy 5 hand-me-down data phone from my son. I love it. I get e-mail, check my blogs, Google, check the weather, and a few other things with it. Picture is from my-six-words-miss-her-lot-my-cell-phone . That phone was very old, I inherited it.
2. Week's Favorite: A dozen frozen Runzas we had forgotten about. We picked them up in Blair, Nebraska (north of Omaha about 30 miles). You can only find them in Nebraska and a few other surrounding states. They are my favorite "sandwich". Runza mentioned posts: http://jimmiehov.blogspot.com/search?q=runza
At the Right is what I call a Wafting Orphan Cloud. I believe it is a Pleasure Cloud, just floating along, basking in the sun with now problems whatsoever.
4.1. Lagniappe: Citroën Car Logo (starts with "C")
found at http://www.car-logos.net/
4.2. Lagniappe: A Citroën Car that Mrs. Jim would like.
"Mrs. Jim really likes these Citroën 2cv cars. She likes blue ones too and would drive one around here if I would get her one." [This one was parked on the street in France, near where we stayed, a short walk to the Eifel Tower.]
"I do have a blue Citroën in much better shape than this one. I am saving it in case I want to do mischief with it. Have to plan my escape route carefully, their top speed is 40 mph. Mine is a 1:18 scale diecast from Solido (link for a grey one, [mine is blue, same mold, same manufacturer]). I bought it in France back in 1992."
