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.

A new year of trips

Well, the end of the year has come and gone and the next 2 vacations are already set up. This year is about the kids the first part of the year, Disney World is the first trip ( have I told you how I feel about Florida ). The grandson was impressed with air flight on his first flight until he found the in-flight entertainment.

The next trip will be back to Rome with my son Damein Berry, this will be his first time to Rome and he is bringing the girlfriend Emma Christmas. Her first time to Europe and Italy. She has been hinting that a ring would be so romantic in Italy. It’s a trap.

My hope for this trip is after showing them around a bit taking some time in a cafe to sit and relax. Damein picked up the tube in London so fast the subway in Rome will be no problem.
