Microsoft Word — wonder how I can do … …

… …

… … I want a block of text in two places in a document and “live”.

Meaning if I update either, then the change is reflected in both places.

Any one have an idea how to do it?

A younster was surprised that a fat old white guy retired injineer, who’s just a poor old senior citizen on a fixed income, would have SNAPCHAT on his phone.

I told her: “I don’t like it. I don’t use it that much. I don’t understand the UI.” 

Or something like that, because of course, the messages disappear. Argh!

I like to see what I said. And mull it over. See what the other person is responding to.

Also, it doesn’t save pictures. Even on my local “cameral roll”. YELP does that for me. 

AND, it doesn’t allow you to use an existing bitmoji easily. But it can be done if you understand that “create” doesn’t mean what I thought it did— from scratch.


P.S. Feel free to give me your insight.

RECOMMENDED: Google’s PhotoScan app

7. Search Scanned Photos

Google recently released a new free app called PhotoScan with the aim of letting you digitize all your old photos. If you’ve installed the app, you can access it by clicking the three lines at the top left of Google Photos, then clicking “Scan photos”. Going forward, simply search for scans whenever you want to see all the photos you digitized.

POLITICAL: “Voter Fraud” is a fact of political life

Let’s Get Real About New Hampshire Voter Fraud

*** begin quote ***

NH1 News seems to be the only statewide media, other than bloggers, interested in the possible loss of a US Senate seat to voter fraud.

Finally, Secretary of State William Gardner is beginning to open the door to the possibility of voter fraud affecting statewide elections in NH. It is a breakthrough even though the numbers he uses are not what they seem.

*** and ***

Is anyone investigating the people who showed up to vote same-day with zero identification? That would be the ones who we take a picture and affidavit from? That wasn’t clear from Gardner’s interview.

I think if we used real numbers, instead of conveniently dodging the total amount of out-of-state voters, the number of people we need to investigate might be a bit higher than 458.

When this investigation is over it would be nice to see the names of the 480 ghost voters who might have swayed a US Senate race in NH.

Oh, but that public information is not public, nor is our taxpayer-payed-for statewide voter database, as they are in many other states – so how would anyone find out?

*** end quote ***


When I think of “voter fraud”, I think of Chicago, Philly, NYC, or LA. Not NH.

Maybe that’s a global issue.

What’s wrong with requiring voter registration in advance and a photo id requirement?

You can’t get on a plane nowadays without it.

VOCABULARY: Is calendarize a word?

Is calendarize a word?

I accidentally used it in a text message. And it wasn’t flagged?

So I googled it and it had it. 

Thought that was odd; like me. So I went to my bookmarked dictionary site.


So then I tried another site.

Sigh! So sad.

VOCABULARY: U say potato; I say potatoe

Friday, April 14, 2017

Remember Dam Quayle and “potato” versus “potatoe”?

Funny thing is that’s how I learned to spell it — with the “oe”.

I’ll have to find and check an old dictionary!
