September 21, 2013

Good afternoon! What a perfect, beautiful day yesterday! Today is beautiful too w/ a forecasted high of only 83. I love it! Lots of stuff yesterday. 1st of all, I changed from V2 e-cigs pre-filled carts to the clear blank cartridges & a bottle of liquid. I like them! Smoking now only costs me pennies a pack. WOOHOO! I started out yesterday by going to work, came back & made eggs over for breakfast, did my treadmill time, showered, ran a laptop charger up to the high school, went back to work, was treated to KFC for lunch, came back & got 2 packages from UPS, got the mail, the FD got toned out to a down tree & a med call, I took the trash out, checked up on Ravelry, took the dogs out, played Bejeweled on the Wii for a little bit, & then headed off to the football game (pics). It was perfect & beautiful out! Not too hot, not too cold. I got there before the game started & stayed through
the end. I even got a cheeseburger, fries, Dr Pepper, & M&Ms for dinner. Yesterday's Sims game was Nottingham & my Sim Queen aged up into a child. She's been working on her cooking skill on the toy oven & going to school. Today is another beautiful day! I have the A/C off & the doors open. I'll probably just open everything up as the day progresses. It's that time of year. :D I love the fresh air! I took the dogs out & loaded up the Criminal career game in Sims. My Sim Renesmee Schlick is in the university on a distinguished phys ed award.

3rd  Punic War between Rome & Carthage, which started in 149 BC, was finally formally "ended" over 2,000 years later w/ a peace treaty between the 2 cities' mayors in 1985.

20@ puts your favorite people in the palm of your hand. And with built-in shortcuts, you can call content directly into your chats in a lightening fast way (we call it SEARCH@).
When a good friend tells you something, you want to do it! And 20@ let’s you:
1) Have multiple micro-group chats just like in your real life; and (2) use search@ to quickly find and bring what you’re looking for into your message conversations.
The outcome is group discovery and doing more stuff. 20@ lets you find it the very moment you’re thinking about it! Now you’re searching with friends.
What’s different in 20@?
* Social Speed-Dial: Organize your friends into easy screens of 20 (face-based)
* Get FB, Twitter (with less noise): 20@ fetches your social streams (choose to only see close-friends activity too!)
* Search@: We re-did search on mobile, so it’s more like the way you do it!
Forget the noise and clutter, and interact more with the people and things that really matter.
Search@ will be everywhere (API coming soon!)
Anyone including you, can instantly have great mobile presence to be discovered and engaged. Our approach is already changing the future of mobile search.

Double wrap your underwear today. Don't ask why, just do it. If you're already at work this is a good time to remind you to have an extra pair of emergency undies in your drawer at all times.

May a weird city councilman zone your sister as a business district.
