Yes! I completely remember my parents having a washer and dryer that lasted for 20 years. Now I feel lucky if I get 3 years out of these appliances. I have no interest in smart anything if it requires I have to subscribe to make my dishwasher work. No thanks.
I understand that technology moves on and companies always have a roadmap. If you want to invest in technology you better be prepared to stick with all the updates over the long haul.
At the end of this I was hoping I was reading a piece of science fiction — like a Michael Crichton piece. Knowing this is our new reality is scary. I take away a couple things from this. First, we have incredible scientists and capabilities to figure this out. Find medicines and vaccines. But second there is no coordinated, global effort to share and communicate and strategize as one human population. Each country takes its own path for handling its own health crisis, but what about a global strategy to handle the science behind it all?
Cell phones are a new reality of this century, but being late is a timeless issue. (I didn’t intend that to be a pun). I had a meeting with an old friend yesterday at noon and I joked with him that he is like clockwork with his punctuality. And that was meant to be a compliment and he took it as one. Indeed it is just being respectful of the other person’s time.
This company was unraveling from day one. Managed by ego rather than sound business strategies of quality and service, Homepolish is a classic business school study in What Not To Do. P.S. I never even heard of this company so all that spend on marketing was not very effective.
I love the pictures and thank you for including a link to Pet Milk. I haven’t read it but I’m intrigued. Be safe out there and don’t forget to call home and check in. Haha. That’s just the Mom in me talking.
Yes the title was intriguing and pulled me in. The more I kept reading the more I thought there was a build up and I was expecting to read the clear and final solution of how to lose weight. Not an enlightening read but rather a summary of things I have always known.
I definitely fall into the phonics camp. I learned to sound out words and we own those Dick and Jane books. My Dad had me read those to him often. However watching a loved one struggle with reading because of dyslexia I can completely agree that phonics is not for everyone. It’s a balance. I had never heard of the term “cueing” as a program for reading until this article.
Having a home office for the past 2-3 decades and smart devices and computer technology all over the house, I find there are days I never need to leave the house. In fact I would much prefer to watch an exciting movie in my pajamas on my comfy sofa. I love the peace and quiet of home but it’s not a good balance. Now there are plenty of days I look for reasons to get out of the house. Isn’t that weird?
The article is right in that we are just waking up to this. So much trash. So much waste. I hate to see so much of it end up in our oceans. Great to see this restaurant be a leader and inform the rest of us.
I enjoyed this article. I was not a fan of Thirtysomething. Maybe we all have a show that we romanticize about. What would our life be like in that show. Hey, I just watched It’s A Wonderful Life for the 10th time. I would love for the author to expand on what it is like to be thrust into the ultra Orthodox community. That sounds like an interesting story.
