Another Texas City Bans Texting and Driving

It's not just texting and driving that Austin is banning, but talking on the cell phone in the car too if the phone is up to the ear.  And if a police officer catches drivers or bicyclists tapping on an app while moving, they can be cited.

Hands-free devices are okay, but even mobile devices like iPads and other tablets fall under the ban now.

I Think I Have Tech-Elbow

 

Does anyone else's elbow hurt?

Mine started hurting a few weeks ago and I passed it off as a freak injury that probably happened when I was picking up the 2-year old to give her a smooch and she wiggled free and twisted my funny bone.  But it won't go away and it's getting worse and I made a huge mistake in Googling my symptoms.

Just say no to medical Googling!  It's always a can of worms better left sealed up because it always comes back with horrible possibilities and then tells us to go to the doctor.  Maybe we should start with the doctor.  But I'm pretty sure he will tell me I have 90-degree-computer-and-smart-phone elbow.  You too?

Dad Gets A Smartphone And Learns To Text

My mom got my dad an iPhone for Father’s Day, and my first text from Dad arrived Monday.

He needed a day or so to figure out how to text on this “newfangled thing,” but once he figured it out he didn’t mess around with just words. He sent me a pic! Of my grandma’s 1980-something Buick. And he didn’t say a word about it, just the pic.

This is going to be a wild texting adventure with Pop.

How Online Dating Has Ruined My Love Life

I am an online dater, and I will probably remain one even though it drives me crazy.

I caught up with an old friend last week and she asked if there was anyone special in my life now.  I said, "Oh, there are three or four.  But there are always three or four."  And then I realized how stupid that sounded.

Here's the nitty gritty on why I think online dating has ruined my dating life.  Maybe forever!
