Smoke, smoke, smoke yourself to death!

This week, I am enjoying the Rosemary & Thyme series, courtesy of Netflix and loving Mad Men , courtesy of AMC.  Have a look at this montage of smoking moments from the show.  No worries, the ciggies apparently are quite benign. Does the sound of the little metal lighter snapping shut bring back memories of the sixties to you?

Heaven or Bermuda?

The Colonel and I spent the Fourth of July weekend with the son, DIL and family in Bermuda. SO lovely!

Coral Beach & Tennis Club, Bermuda

Here comes the sun king...

Posted by Picasa
Several years ago, I discontinued the land line service at my house and never sought a land line for my residence in Florida. Email and wireless phoning seemed enough. One technology replaces another.
One issue which must be considered is how to charge the batteries should the electricity source be lost for any of many reasons. I have chosen the Solio Solar charger as an alternative in the event electricity is not available. Charged by the sun's energy, electric outlet, auto lighter outlet or computer, it may come in handy some time. The charge remains for one year. To obtain a 100% charge via solar source, the charger must be in direct sun for quite some time. Even at 40%, I was able to get two bars on my phone, which certainly would allow for a number of emergency calls.
