✏ October 2, 2013 ★

Good morning! Yesterday was so busy that I never even made it to work. A DVR would have helped ... 3 shows were on yesterday. I did manage to get the mail, cook bacon for breakfast, clean the house & go for my mile & a half walk around the loop. On the last part of the walk my NCIS alarm went off & I had to speed walk to make it back in time before the show started. NCIS, NCIS: LA, & Chicago Fire ... then hubby came home during the news @ 10. My Sims game yesterday was Tahoe Pines & my Sim Michael Shallow is in the university towards a technology degree & going to classes & working on his skills. This morning I took the dogs out & loaded up Caravelle. My Sim Piper is in the university towards a phys ed degree. She'll be going to classes & working on her skills. Board of Adjustments meeting tonight @ 7:p. I'll be there!

For the Republicans to win any more elections they have to get rid of the Republican image. The big business image. The party of the rich, which is the label of the Republican party. So here are some of the things that the Republicans are going to do to change their image: They're offering free polo lessons to the blacks. They're letting poor families spend a weekend in the trunk of a Rolls Royce. They're distributing caviar helper to the 100 neediest cases. And ... corporation lawyers are going to teach the poor loopholes so they don't pay any taxes. -Johnny Carson 1977

Have you ever wanted to use your iPhone's / iPod touch's lock screen as a note keeper? Well, now you can!
Just open the application and follow these simple instructions:
· Tap the note to bring out the keyboard.
· Write your note.
· Swipe the note down or tap on the top of the screen to hide the keyboard.
· And finally take a screenshot by tapping the bottom of the screen, or by pressing both the home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time, and set that image as wallpaper so that you don't forget anything!
What people are saying about NoteNow:
“…if you’ve been looking for an easy to use app to store all your other thoughts and activities with a different method, well — there you go.” - Federico Viticci, MacStories
If you want to make a new note, all you have to do is swipe left. Then to go back to previous notes you just have to swipe right.
Swipe the note down when the keyboard is hidden to bring out the settings, there you'll be able to change the app so that it looks however you like it best!
Note: There is a known issue in which if you try to use a saved screenshot as your wallpaper it will appear too big in iOS 7, this is due to the parallax effect. You can disable parallax by going to Settings→General→Accessibility→Reduce Motion
This will disable the zooming into the image used as a wallpaper, I'm working on a fix, but for now this can be used as a workaround, unless you don't mind the zoomed in look.

Today could be the 1st day of a head cold or even worse, jury duty. Stare off into space during the boir dire (jury selection) & tell the judge you're just waiting for your meds to kick in. You should be home in time for The Jerry Springer Show.
