Visual Escapes and Daily Inspirations: Share Yours

Posted by John, Volunteer Mentor @johnbishop, Mar 16, 2020

Let’s create a space to offer a daily reprieve.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of uncertainty and fear into our lives. Some of that fear and uncertainty can be caused by over thinking what is going on or unnecessarily worrying. So, I’m making sure I wash my hands frequently, not touching my face, staying away from social gatherings and all of the recommended guidelines to help avoid getting or spreading COVID-19 but it can be a little boring. I try to not watch news all day long while I’m in this self imposed captivity. I like to take pictures of birds and other creatures from my window as a welcome break.

I invite you to join me in sharing pictures, favorite poems, sayings, mottos, funny moments. Let’s take a daily break together.

@zeiracorp This is an important message to all cat owners THIS is your cat on drugs. SYMPTOMS: BIG eyes starring at you in a real creepy way. BEHAVIORS: Suddenly crawling up your $3000 drapes just to see the room from a different viewpoint, Deciding to sharpen their claws on your $5000 black leather sofa, and/or tearing around the house like they are training for some kind of military coup. TREATMENT: Checking to see you haven’t accidentally given your cat your green stuff instead of their green stuff ( if you catch my drift) Reading the package instructions to make sure you haven’t given your poor kitty ten times the amount of the recommended catnip dose. Staying calm, your cat will collapse on the floor and sleep for the next 12 hours. During that time, you can look online for your drape replacement and a leather kit for your destroyed sofa . Iodine your many scratches. And, lastly, contemplate the overuse of any future catnip. Remember to use catnip responsibility. Thank you

@zeiracorp. I hope I didn’t offend anyone with this ridiculous message. This is what happens to me when I’m not occupied with a productive outlet. Maybe I need a hobby ? 🤔

Was watching the second season of American Gods (pretty good) last night and in a scene someone was at a computer that was early days (late 80’s early 1990). I had one like that at work and home. It looked so clunky. Your’s is wild. Since retiring, I don’t keep up so much. Let me know what you think of that pc. I want to dump my out dated laptop for something mote portable and streamlined. I don’t know anything about yours. virgo

I will check it out. Appreciate it. Yeah, not spending that kind of $. Actually was looking at the new tablets (thru AT&T where we get service, add on to monthly payment) Has a lot of features, good color. You can customize. The price is ( ($350-$700) good. Comes with it’s protective covering so no additional pieces. But, I’m just starting to look around. Will keep my laptop for storage , backup. So, do you favor a laptop over a tablet? Why?

REPLY

@zeiracorp yeah, they make it so you have to buy to stay current. My laptop was a refurb and it was a big mistake. It was so slow. I’d be typing away and look at the screen and it was on the second word of the sentence or just stopped. So, I just started using my phone, but that is really limiting. Live and learn. .I kept my hard drive and donated the rest of my desk top to a small school (primary) on our block. I think they either incorporated the pieces or sold st a school fund raiser. Anyway, my new adventure. virgo
