Mixing Old and New Technologies is Fun and Interesting

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

I like seeing a mix of old and new when it comes to technologies. I still have a working old desk telephone that was made in the 1970s. I use it every day. It is one of those heavy desk models that you probably could run over with a car and not break it. It is one of the first to use DTMF touchtones. I also carry a wooden USB flash drive in my pocket. That is what I call an interesting mix of the old and new. The flash drive in a wooden housing. I think that is neat. I have always wanted to own a cell phone in a wood housing. I think that would be really cool.

I actually collect old telephones. I have a display in my office. Every single one of the phones I have is fully functional. I have an old dial candlestick phone that has the earpiece you hold up to your ear to listen. I have several crank wall models connected to a functioning switchboard that can ring other phones in the lobby and other offices. Our kids have a lot of fun playing telephone operator. (more…)

Look to the Internet to Find People Who Think Like You Do

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

I always felt that I was not like anyone else when it comes to marriage or even being single. And I always thought that I would never find anyone who is remotely like me, but I was wrong. For example, I have never felt that I belong with just one person for life. I’ve always been interested in dating a variety of people, and anything outside of that left me unhappy. When I learned that it is possible to find threesome partners online, I was stunned that there are people out there like me. It made me happy to learn that it was possible.

I wondered what kind of people I would find. (more…)

Getting Ready to Finish the Basement

Monday, July 25th, 2016

I bought this house about a year and a half ago, the entire place was never finished because the guy who started building it got in a bad accident. I only finished the main level and moved in. Now I am ready to finish the basement. I have decided that I am going to try to build a large coral reef aquarium. I know where I can buy clownfish and the other fish that I need, but of course this is not something that is easy or simple to maintain. You need to have a good bit of knowledge and you can not take a vacation, it all has to be done like clockwork. In fact the simple thing would be to hire a professional to manage the thing, but that is a very expensive idea and it also has the effect of not making it your own thing. You are no longer the responsible party.

Of course the idea is going to be to have a great place to entertain my friends and family. (more…)
