Thursday Thoughts: The Latest, Greatest Blogging Tool

After last week's post, which proved that I'm just a bit out of touch with technology, my son gave me this idea for a blog post.  I told him I'd use it.


Are you tired of misplacing your quill or finding an empty ink well?  Fortunately, the latest invention--the "typewriter"--will put an end to those frustrations.  With a simple touch of a button, letters will appear on paper.  Lines advance with a quick push of the return bar.  A cheery "ding" accompanies the motion.

Typewriters will make blogging so easy!  Whenever an idea pops into mind, just sit down and start typing.   With any luck, someone will soon invent something to correct mistakes.

  4. There was nothing but manual typewriters in my high school typing class. Each mistake on speed test took 5 wpm off your total, so I wound up typing negative words per minute. Dropped the class at semester when the teacher started talking about carbon paper.

    I'm so old....

    I've still got my first typwriter, bought from my brother when I was 14 (I'm nearly 52 now), and it still works!
    My Silver Reed is as precious to me as a writer as anything I can think of, and is always there, even if the electric goes! Lol

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: August Arrives!

A wild sunflower shows its cheery yellow petals My teacher friends are preparing to return to the classroom, whatever that looks like in their district. In any other year, I would be getting excited about BYU's Education Week. 2020 isn't like any other year, though, is it? Ed Week has been postponed to a date TBA and changed to an online format. While I am happy that I am getting projects done around the house, and I'm generally content to live the life of a hermit, I'm literally dreaming of going to Disneyland, which makes me think I must be getting a little case of cabin fever. (I'm not usually a big dreamer, or if I am, I don't usually remember my dreams. This one was particularly funny, I thought: I was in line to get into Disneyland. In front of me in line were the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Cook was having trouble and his ticket wasn't scanning. I said to the cast member, "He's OK.

Ten Things of Thankful: Harvest Time Edition

  A harvest of beets, carrots, potatoes, and onions  Although I have come to love summer once again, I have always loved fall. As a child, I loved the excitement of back-to-school time. There was something so satisfying about checking off the required school supplies from the list, and the new clothes and shoes were waiting so patiently for the first day to arrive, so I could wear them. The air developed a crisp coolness, and soon it would be the holiday season.  I don't have new school supplies, nor do I have a new outfit in my closet, but I still love autumn. As an adult, September brings harvest time. I have been enjoying the bounty of the garden, and am taking mental note of what worked and what didn't, in preparation for next planting season. The temperatures are beginning the roller-coaster ride of changing seasons, and soon enough we will be celebrating holidays. One of those holidays, of course, is Thanksgiving, and what better way to prepare than to reflect back on thi
