Senior Techie vol 1:5

Hi, Senior Techie has been otherwise engaged since March-ah, March. I remember happy thoughts for Spring and Summer. Instead, we became terrorized by an unseen but very visible coronavirus named COVID-19. A most unwanted guest so to say. Then, the application of the word: Pandemic! What? We don’t get involved in these world type diseases…thoseContinue reading “Senior Techie vol 1:5”

America, Stop Shooting Yourself in the Head

America shot itself in the head when it denied education to the slaves and descendants of slaves. America shot itself in the head when it made it nearly impossible for Black children to receive a fully enriched education. Racism is Not Over.

Happenings in this Time of COVID-19

By now, we all have been affected by this time of COVID-19. For each of us, our perception of this disease varies. Now, I am doing my best to shelter in place.

Senior Techie Vol. 1:2 Dec. 29,2019

As usual, I announce things backwards. This is no reflection on the age of the Senior Techie. This is my usual operating procedure. Anyway, after I posted my first, of what I hope are many, Senior Techie moments, my mind snapped back to remember that I never introduced Senior Techie. Well, it’s me. I’ve lovedContinue reading “Senior Techie Vol. 1:2 Dec. 29,2019”

Senior Techie vol. 1 Dec. 2019

With the beginning of a new year, I have decided that there must be something about our technology that speaks just to those of us who are called seniors, elderly, or whatever title comes when you are over 60 or is it 70? Constantly, I am amazed when looking at the newest technology that IContinue reading “Senior Techie vol. 1 Dec. 2019”
