It has taken me a while to get used to my new Moto Z Play phone, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The camera is excellent, the battery life is amazing, and I get a better signal with it here in our fringe Verizon reception area than I did with my Samsung. There has […]

Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]
