October 12, 2013

Good morning! I spent a lot of time on the phone yesterday morning, got the mail, went to work, stopped at the bank, grabbed lunch at Burger King, showered, went through my Outlook email account, relaxed on the back porch for a bit, took the dogs out, had something to eat, went through an old 'My Documents' CD, put on some dish Music, catalog shopped, then updated my iPhone 5. I didn't get any crafting in yesterday, but I'm getting used to that. :(  I had one heck of a scare yesterday. While I was out working, I swung by the bank & then went to Burger King to grab lunch ... when I pulled up to the window & reached for my iPhone wallet to pay, IT WASN'T THERE! It was then that I remembered that I got out of the truck WITH my phone / wallet in my hand ... loaded the truck, got back in & drove away. O-M-G! Where did I sit my phone / wallet ?! It was gone. I left it somewhere out on the truck. I looked ... not there. It fell off! WHERE? WHEN? I drove back to where I loaded the truck. Not there. I went inside & asked if anyone turned it in. Nope. I followed my exact path ... now to the bank. As I was driving & looking on the street, there it was! It had fallen off the truck after I left the bank. It was laying in the street, wide open & face up. I stopped right there (luckily there was no one behind me), jumped out, ran over & grabbed it ... knowing that all my cash, credit cards, & ID would probably still be in it because no one had picked it up ... but I was fully expecting my iPhone 5 to be crushed. As I was going for it a large SUV passed & drove over it (straddled it). When I grabbed it, it was mint. Not a scratch or tire print on it. The phone still worked & everything was still there. With everything considered, cash, cost to replace the phone, credit cards, replacing my DL, & cost of the wallet itself ... we're talking well over a grand in that little wallet. And it was ALL THERE & UNHARMED! WOOHOO! Talk about LUCKY!! Yesterday's Sims game was LizC864 6 & my Sim Tasha is in the university working on her skills & going to classes. This morning I took the dogs out & loaded up the Goth game in Sims. My Sim Misty II is in the university towards a science & medicine degree.

- You'll love our bells! Recorded with the highest quality digital audio equipment, these bell samples are amazing. Crystal clear with extra long fade outs. They sound great with the built-in speaker, but to get the full effect, try using headphones or external speakers.
- Choose from eight different bells of varying size and metal compositions - from bright and clean to deep and complex with lovely overtones. A wood block sound is also included.
- Bells can be configured to ring at the start, the end, and at specified (or random) times during your session. Each bell can be set to ring once, twice or three times. The delay between strikes is configurable from 1 to 20 seconds.
- Powerful logging and statistics features allow you to track your progress over time. Multiple charts, a complete session log and helpful statistics give you a complete picture of how your practice is evolving.
- Presets allow you to save an unlimited number of configurations and assign names to them. If you have multiple meditation routines (such as Morning and Evening), this makes it easy to switch between them without any configuration changes.
- Insight Connect milestones are awarded for significant achievements as your practice progresses.
- You may set a background image from your own photo album. While the timer is running, your image is shown full screen. Optionally, the time display and controls can be hidden so that they are shown only when the image is tapped.
- Meditation Journal: You may enter notes about each session when the timer ends - a practice that many people find to be helpful and therapeutic. Your journal entries can be exported via an email attachment. Journal access may be password protected to ensure privacy.
- Insight Timer will run in the background. You can start the timer, then run other apps and the bells will continue to ring. When the timer is finished, a message will pop up to alert you.
- Insight Timer is geared toward meditation, but it also works great for yoga, Reiki, exercise or any other activity that you wish to time.
- Optional labels for interval bells. Each bell's label will be displayed on the screen when it rings. You can use this to guide you though the different phases of your routine.
- Pause and resume your timer session.
- Bells will ring even when the device is locked so you can turn off the screen to save power and eliminate ambient light.
- Optionally vibrate with or instead of bells.
- iPod tracks will continue to play while the timer is running.
- Bells will ring even if silent switch is on.
