Since I’m in the middle of reformatting my computer (that’s a long story), I don’t have access to my usual software. Being that I’m inspired to write, I needed software that would facilitate writing and still be operational on a computer that is not fully functional. Since I have a Google Drive, I thought why […]

I’m sharing another “DUH” Moment with my Samsung Galaxy Note.  It seems that ever since I purchased my Samsung tablet, I’ve had a problem with external speakers.

The reason is simple; it’s the one phone being offered by my cell phone service provider that met all of my needs. In my earlier posts I explain that I’m not a heavy cell phone user. In fact, I barely use a cell phone. When I decided to switch from a prepaid cell phone to […]
