Google Calendar Down

Down again

About a month ago I got a Google hub and wanted to switch to the Google calendar to see how it would work with the hub. After about a week I couldn’t take it anymore the interface was so bad I went back to Outlook.

Since the change back Google services have gone down twice,very odd for Google.

Mother’s Day at The Peppermill

Its always nice to have a stay-cation once in a while, even better when the rooms are free. Well not exactly free if you count in the cost of playing the slots, but that can vary also. Not much into playing the slots today but the wife will be more then willing to play for me.

Peppermill Reno

It’s a nice hotel and we know a lot of the bartenders so it makes it fun to hangout. I have to work from here for the next 3 days so I get to people watch and hear all the stories about drunks on the gaming floor.

Monday: I had to go to work while the wife had her spa day. My day didn’t go so well dropped a printer on my right ankle and a battery backup unit on my left ankle.

Her day

Well all in all she had a good weekend and was very relaxed when she left. I think it was nice to get home to my own bed.

In a rut “internet wise”

So the other day I added folders in my bookmarks bar of my browser to add some new space and it got me thinking about how I do things on the internet. The way it was set up my hand would go to the same spaces every day and I was thinking these sites are not all the internet is. I was so surprised just moving things around skewed up my hands and where it moves the mouse.

This got me to thinking I have been using the web links for email for years when I have Outlook the program in the computer ( side note I miss outlook express ) removing the links to the 3 email accounts would make some space in the bookmarks bar. So all of this is making me think about how I’m doing things on the computer, maybe it’s a geek thing but just making these changes might be a good thing for everyone to try.

I set up Outlook and downloaded Thunderbird for email accounts and forgot how involved it is to set the programs up the way you want to, Years ago it was just second nature, it was a nice workout for the brain.

Nonchalant About Roma

So my wife tells me we can’t come to Rome anymore because I’m not a excited about it as I used to be. We are here for 2 weeks and this is my 5th trip to Rome and I have been a tour guide so many times I hope its just a tired of running around thing.

Damein and Emma

This time we are here with my son and his girlfriend Emma and I think they are enjoying themselves. He got a chance to have his birthday in another country, so both the kids have been here now. We told Alex and Damein one trip each the next time its on you to come back.

One of the things we did different this time was rent an apartment for the 2nd week very near the Pantheon and it has no lift.Bad idea, 45 steps to my room and 65 steps to my sister-in-law’s room.Now that is after 20K steps a day looking around at everything else.

As I write this i’m at one of our favorite place’s the Di Rienzo in the plaza with the Pantheon,we have coming here every night after walking and the stall seems to have adopted us. One of the waiters I remembered from when my daughter was here and I found out he has been working here for 14 years.

Yesterday we were off for a fast tour of Florence another city I love and today they are off to Tivoli,Italy. I felt a little bad this morning like I was catching a cold so it was nap day for me.You need nap days when you are here.
