Introduction – Learning the iPhone 6s Plus and the iPad Pro


Hello Everyone,

It is about time I started doing what I said I was going to do and publish some ‘how to articles’ about my Apple products.

IMG_0242A couple of months ago, I purchased an iPad Pro.  Do I love it? The answer is Yes!

Will it take the place of my MacBook Pro? No. However, it is a welcomed tool for a writer like myself that has the habit of waking up late at night and starts writing.  So, I will be writing about my experiences with the iPad Pro and the features that I like the best.

apple-iphone-6s-plusA year ago, my iPhone 5 (yes, you are reading correctly, a year ago) was damaged. A defect, the display screen disconnected from the metal case, costs more to repair than getting a new one.  So, since last August, I have needed a new iPhone, but I was so in love with my iPhone 5 that I sat on my hands and did nothing because it was still working. However, the reaction time was slow; it took ages to execute and move between apps. So, I have recently acquired the 6s plus.

 

Therefore, I will be looking at the iPhone 6s Plus and the iPad Pro, starting next Friday.   I plan to do two articles a month.

Wishing you all of you a happy weekend.

Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia April 4 2016

Good Evening Everyone,

It is Monday and I am still hanging in there with the A to Z Blog Challenge. However, I needed a laugh and going through my emails saw the post from Chris the story reading ape’s blog.
I wasn’t smiling when I started reading it but after the third cup, I was barreling over with laughter.
I hope it does the same thing for you.

Have a great week and for those of you participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge, hang in there. We CAN do it.

Shalom,

Tech Tips for Writers #101: The Internet Button


Hello Everyone,
Here is some sound advice for you if you have problems connecting your laptop to the Internet, courtesy of Jacqui Murray’s Blog site, Word Dreams.

Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.

Q: My internet stopped working on my laptop. Everyone else’s in the house works, but mine won’t connect. What do I do?

A: First: Make sure the laptop button that allows connection to the internet is on. More often than not, that’s the problem for teachers at my school. If it’s not that, it gets much more complicated. I’ll cross my fingers.

Tech Tip for Writers #106: Auto-add a Period, Caps Lock, and More on an IPad


Hello Everyone,
Here is an excellent tech tip for writers or for anyone who writes a lot with their iPad or tablet.

Q: Typing on the iPad keyboard is slow. You have to access two different screens to type most messages. How do I speed that up without buying (and installing) a separate QWERTY keyboard?

A: Here’s one time-saving tip: IPads and most Smartphones will add a period (which inconveniently is on the second screen) if you double-space.

Cool.

Double-tapping seems to be a secret shortkey for many tools. For example, if you double-click the shift key, it turns the CAPS LOCK on.

Book Quote Challenge: Day Three


Hello Everyone,

Here are my last three quotes for the Book Quote Challenge. Below I have nominated three people to continue the Challenge, and I have also put in the  link to each of  their blogs.

 

 

The Sour Cherry Surprise

“The truth is that I’m very good at forgiving. Forgiving is one o the things I do best.”

 

The Shimmering Blond Sister

“We may not be perfect. Far from it, in fact. But we always take care of our own. Never ever forget that.”

 

The Blood Red Indian Summer

“You made me realize that I’m not ready to be put out to pasture yet. I’m just like you––if I’m not helping someone, or at least trying, then they may as well dig a hole and cover me over.”

 

All quotes above are  taken from the book series, Berger & Mitry by David Handler.

 

My three nominees for the Book Quotes Challenge are:

Book Quote Challenge: Day Two


I have been reading the Berger & Mitry Crime Fiction Series by David Handler.  There are ten books in the series so far, and I’ll be reviewing a book a week, starting with February 26 on my book review blog. In my opinion, this is another great crime solving couple who will go down in history like Miss Marple and Mr. Stringer, Sherlock Holmes & Watson and Thomas and Charlotte Pitt, William Monk and Hester, and Peter Wimsey and his ladylove Harriet Vane.

Therefore, all of my quotes for the Three-Day Book Quote Challenge are coming out of this series.  Today, I have chosen the first book of the series, The Cold Blue Blood.

Quote 1.  Mitch stood there a moment in stunned silence, realizing to his own astonishment that it had finally happened. One door was closing and another one was opening.  Today was the day. As of this moment, I am moving on.

The Cold Blue Blood

Quote 2.  “Day One- Have found it,” Mitch scribbled in his notepad. “Have at long last discovered the land that time forgot. All is quiet­­––too quiet. Have queer feeling that someone, or something is following me.”

The Cold Blue Blood

Quote 3.   A conversation between Mitch Berger and Desiree Mitry about her talent.

“You were hoping I’d tell you that you were no good––so you could forget about the whole thing. Not a chance. I won’t do it. You are good. And you know it. And you’re scared to death. I don’t blame you, believe me.  Talent is a very frightening thing.”

“Now why do you say that?”

“Because if you have it, you have to do something with it. You owe it to yourself.  Wasting talent is one of the deadly sins.  Maybe it didn’t make the Bible’s top seven, but it’s right there at the top of mine. You must study and work and grow. And that’s where it gets scary. Because the people closest to you will think you’ve gone a little nuts. They will not understand why you’ve quit your job––“
