Small print


I had this crazy idea that I could use my little tablet and a bluetooth keyboard in place of a laptop for blogging. My idea was that it might make a suitable platform for writing. Well, my home computer is acting up. Rather than keep messing around with it, I'm writing this post on the tablet.

Might as well test it at home to see if it's really going to work. It got me thinking. How often do we have something we plan to use a backup, but never test to see if it really works?

Here's a simple example. How many people buy a new car and never check out how to change a spare? You assume it's there and may kinda know how it works, but have you tried it out? Remove the jack and spare tire? It's a lot easier to figure out how it works in your driveway with no pressure. Isn't that better than in the dark and rain on the side of the road?

Naw . . . we'll just call AAA, right?

  1. Some people don't think about tomorrow - When they wake up, that day is done already.

    1. . . . and on the other side of the coin are people who forget to live for today. Somewhere in the middle is balance.

  2. When you get to my age you may want to do anything important today. I may be dead tomorrow.

  3. I have a couple of Kindles, an HD and an HDX. Trying to do a post with them is like running your fingernails over a blackboard.

    1. A full sized blue tooth enabled keyboard makes all the difference. Tomorrow's post was also written on the tablet as my old computer is acting up again.

      I've a whole book I'm in the middle of rewriting and hope to not have to do it on the tablet.
