No. 1,289 The TV advertising on both sides of the Pennsylvania Senatorial race has been an abomination of untruth, half truth and true but irrelevant statements. So perhaps one more wrong allegation doesn’t matter very much. In fact, some of the claims are so outrageous, that even a child could see through them. Nevertheless, the […]
So what to do with all that pleasant daylight after dinner?
Take a walk. Or better yet, take a walk with a family member or a friend. Talk and walk.

No. 1,235 Summary: Everything you ever wanted to know (or didn’t) about buying and operating a drone. A blog known as The Gadgeteer, written by Julie Streitelmeier, reviews all kinds of technology.
