Day 98 - Technology

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

For various reasons I am looking into mobiles, kindles, dual tablets, and TV's.  I have not bought any of these type of items in many, many, years.  The terminology is scrambling my brains.  I keep thinking 'what on earth does that mean' and having to google it.  I've come to the conclusion that once I've got up to speed, and decided on which gadgets/brands/models I want, they'll be obsolete and I'll have to start all over again.  

I think I need to scuttle back to the safety of cooking, plus home remedies.  Speaking of which, the cotton wool soaked in apple cider vinegar didn't really seem to do much for the corn/callus, so it was back to the taped on banana skin today.  Years ago I saw a Dr about it and she said it was a corn and to apply salactol acid which I did and for a while it did go away.  I'm convinced that it is actually a callus not a corn.  Either way, many of the treatments are much the same.  I just wish the chiropodists/podiatrists could open up again so I could get a professional opinion. 

Bright blessings

    We’ve got iPads and iPhones and they’re great because they’re easy to use and sync with each other...

    We have a magazine called _Consumer Reports_ that compares various brands of a certain product. Very helpful.

    Look at the active ingredient on over the counter medications. Often the same amount of an ingredient is available for a much less expensive amount if in a different med. I once used a corn medication to loosen a plantar wart. It lifted right out after a couple applications.

    I am not technosavvy either. But the time I get used to something it's obsolete.

    HOPE the banana peel helps. I have heard of that. Corns/calluses are so painful.

    I love my iPad and hardly ever use my laptop anymore, and only Use my phone when I am out and about or as a camera.
    I got the cheapest iPad, which only works with WiFi, but that acts as a kindle, too.
    You are right, the technology can be overwhelming but it is good for our aging brains to learn new things.
    Good luck!
