Would I do it again?
Can I do it again?
Will I do it again?
The odds are that I will have to do it again at some point. After that, I am out of options.
Jim, Fullerton, CA - Internet Radio recommendations
Jim likes Google Chrome. Leo does to and it’s pretty much all he uses. What he really likes is that if a page crashes, you exit the tab, not Chrome completely. That’s nice.
Jim wants to get a WiFi radio but they seem to be pricey and complicated to set up. Leo says they are. You have to set them up to log into your network. Then you have to find your favorite radio stations within the 25,000 available online. Leo recommends getting a radio that support RECIVA. It’s an online directory which enables you to set them up and then add to favorites. Then a radio that supports Reciva will just connect and download to your favorites.
But what about using an iPad? Leo says that’s an interesting choice, but it’s an expensive option just to listen to radio. Leo recommends the Sonos S5, which is a single setup speaker and it uses WiFi. They just have an on/off and volume. It works with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and can play not only streaming radio but also Pandora and other streaming options. The Speakers also can be placed all over the house. It’s pretty amazing.
I try to go to the YMCA on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Ride the bike for 30 minutes (usually about 5 miles) then come home and putter around the house. If I sit down, there goes the inertia.
On "down days" I try to keep up with my reading.
I have been to Kaiser Sunset for an appointment with the BMT specialist Dr. Sahibi. I got a flu shot, whooping cough shot, and 9 vials of blood. Things still look good. She did change my Thalidomide from 100 to 50 because of my toes turning into unfeeling stumps. I must say, that the feeling is coming back, and it is a great comfort. The fingers still are numb, but you take the slightly bad to conquer the truly horrific.
Last weekend we had the girls cousins here -- Jay and Alana. Jay can come over any time. Alana needs to calm down and focus on what needs to be done. Five times I asked her to not go in the grass (doggie land mines) and six times she went out there. She doesn't like time outs.
I still get worn out (like now) and I don't hesitate to nap. Sometimes it is good to recognize your limits and make peace with them.
Well, I have to hurry up and relax so we can do Disneyland...
