Holidays!

screen-shot-2016-12-20-at-6-45-01-pmBecause I’ve been absent from this blog for so long (all’s well, thanks for the inquiries 🙂 )… I’ve missed posting Holiday things! So I’ll correct that now, by adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

There are so many Christmas apps! One favorite type, going strong for the last couple of years, can be summed up as: “Catch-Santa-in-your-Living-Room-to-prove-to-your-kids-that-he-is-real.” (Thanks to Kerry for reminding me of this one)

screen-shot-2016-12-20-at-7-10-29-pmThere are several of these available, and they are kind of fun. You just take a picture of your own tree, or fireplace or some other known-to-your-kids spot. Then use the app to place Santa right there. Through the magic of filters, it looks incredibly real.

One of these apps is: Snap Santa. It’s free, and the photos look quite good, but you’ll have to work your way around the ads. Just press the ‘x’ in the game ad to close it, and away you go. You’ll be presented with one Santa when you start, but you can scroll your way through quite a few others (also for free).

I know that many of you enjoy Simon’s Cat as much as I do. Happily we have a new one for Christmas this year. It’s called “Little Box.” Enjoy!

And, since this is a tech blog, I’ll include another video featuring the “Simon’s Cat” artist, Simon Tofield. You’ll catch a glimpse of the artist’s studio and watch as he sketches and colors in a Christmas picture using his computer. A little “behind the scenes” look at Simon’s … uhhh… Tech. Yes. Simon’s Tech. 🙂

And for all my friends who celebrate Hanukkah, this is a great video. I guarantee your feet will be tapping! (Thanks to Trudi for sharing this)

To all my friends in the Blog-o-sphere, Best wishes for a wonderful Holiday season and a most happy and healthy New Year! See you in 2017!

    Dear Share Chair I downloaded loads of books to my Kindle (all new ereader anti glare) library and then all of a sudden at the airport before an 11 hour flight all the books on my Kindle disappeared – my downloaded library was empty. They were still on my Samsung phone and I have started again to load them onto the Kindle.. What did I do wrong?!

    • My only thought is that perhaps you were looking at your cloud library instead of your device library? Once they are downloaded and physically sitting ON your Kindle, you have to actively “remove from this device” to get them off. If they really truly evaporated, I’d contact Amazon support. That simply should not happen. Let me know what you find out!

I'd love to hear what you think!
