One boomer's treasure is another millennial's clutter
She's 93 now and it doesn't take a genius to figure out why, particularly since she's been voicing alarm that she'll die one of these days and nobody will find her. There are “It's stuff like bunches of old photos and documents, old bowls or ...

I Stopped Using My iPhone as an Alarm Clock, What Happened Next Blew My ...
BEEP BEEP! or forking out £30 on my own dawn chorus, a third way suddenly occurred to me - the good old-fashioned clock radio. And it turned out that John Lewis sells just the thing: for £40 I can wake up to the sound of the human voice, or a Radio One DJ....

The spirit that was Va. radio K-Country 108
About this time last year, Ted Shockley and I discussed an article about the Eastern Shore's old country radio station, WKRE (K-Country 108), and what it was like for me, an 18-year getting started in radio. Sadly, the time frame aligned with failing ...

We parked our minibus and asked a steward where s the wheelchair entrance for away supporters. He pointed to more Bradford supporters in wheelchairs and told us to wait with them. It was not under cover, full of tables and plastic chairs with no seats for our carers to sit on. We found out that away wheelchair supporters should go to a new stand with a covered elevated viewing platform which was empty. In the end I told my carer I want to go home at 1445. We went back to our minibus and got home at 1545. I put my feet up and watched TV. 02/03 In the morning I used my PC to change my password plus I emailed Sarah Williams at the and in the... After I used my PC and replied to Sarah Williams to send my email to Featherstone. After lunch I put my feet up and watched TV. At 1600 my bowels opened and my carers changed my pad plus my shirt. I put my feet up and watched TV. I realised that I had Constipation because my bowels hadn't been open for at least 2 days. 05/03 In morning I used my PC. At 1130 I attended my monthly Care Plan review which lasted until 1230. In the afternoon I put my feet up and watched TV. 06/03 I was suppose.
This event is timed, no pun intended. When "Old Westminster" here strikes 9 o'clock the fun starts. Now don't start whining Mr. President those are MeMa's rules and she is very guarded with this clock because it was our house warming gift to each other when we moved in. Besides there are clocks on all three floors. Now this precious little gem and I do mean gem, holds the secret to sending the "Little Terrorists" into slumber land even after I have loaded them with sugar. MeMas clock is a wonder of the modern world that is beyond me. It is the most multi-functioning marvel that I have ever seen, it even puts the time on the ceiling for when one can't sleep and it will glare the time at you in big red numbers... Rotten bastard clock.
Or should I say more formally… good evening … ^^. Yesterday I had this kind of a lazy Sunday which I spent decorating my bedroom and capturing my ideas with my camera. And then I decided that it would be great to share some of the stuff I made because I am absolutely FOND of DIY decorations and decors in bedrooms and I put my whole heart into decorating mine. I started off wanting to spray paint it white and green and , of course I didn`t…. I started off with my mind set to it and after spray painting the first shelf white I ran out of my white spray paint… Which was veeeery disappointing… So I decided to just ditch the whole plan of bothering myself with spray paint and I went ahead... It has this lovely vintage touch to it and it looks old-fashioned, which is exactly the style I was aiming for. Finally I had a place to put all my books (1st, 2nd and 3rd shelves from the top) and my CD`s and photo albums (bottom shelf). And on the top, as you can see, I have some lovely decorations like a photo of me and my boyfriend before his prom this year, a set of heart-shaped scented candles, a `Love` handmade gift from my boyfriend (on the photo below), a globe and another...
