Music Drives My Passion for Cooking

I am a multitasker. I know it is not something to brag about. I mean, in one way it is okay. However, in other ways it can be a problem. If you are a chef, you learn how to multitask in specific ways. You can manage many operations going on at the same time, but you devote your attention to the task at hand. You just switch from one task to the next quickly and keep track. When I am working at the computer, I am watching Tubidy mp3 videos at the same time ona second monitor. I am really multitasking doing that. It is good that I can type without looking at the keyboard or even the screen for that matter. But even I find it interesting how I can actually do these two things at the same time. I guess it is all the kitchen experience of managing so many detail-oriented tasks at once.

Music helps me focus. If I am not listening to music over speakers, I am watching videos or listening to mp3s on my phone using earbuds. Continue reading

We Had to Find out What Was Happening in Our Son’s Life

We found it necessary to spy on Snapchat when our son would not allow us to know what was going on in his life. We’re glad that we did it. We are even more glad that we had the ability to do it. We have always been more than fair as parents, and we have explained many times to our children that we need to have an open dialogue at all times. They were told that if they become secretive, that is a good sign that they are up to something that could potentially hurt them in the short term or long term. Both of our kids said they understood, but that didn’t stop one of them from trying to shut us out.

Both my wife and I noticed that our son, Jared, was becoming very withdrawn at home. We wondered if that was happening only in our house or if it was happening at his school or job. We made an appointment with his favorite teacher to talk it over with her. That was when she told us that he was failing in her class, and she had been told by fellow teachers that we was near failing in most of his other classes. Continue reading

How Safe Are Your Messaging Apps?

I got to thinking about privacy on the web a long time ago. Of course if you use email to communicate that is going to make you vulnerable and there are a lot of things that you would be foolish to put at risk on many platforms. For instance if you use Kik, then you are really at risk of people who use a program called Kik hacker. Of course that is not so plain and straightforward as that, because the real risk with that is having someone physically get hold of your phone to install that program. It is really not even illegal if you use it the way that they claim that you should when they sell it. Obviously there are tons of people who are keen to know what their kids are doing or what their wife or husband is up to. Continue reading

Using My Brothers Phone on a Different Carrier

Now that Apple just released a new version of the iPhone, it seems like everyone is buying one. This includes my brother, who was one of the first people in line the day that it was released. He always has to have the latest and the greatest gadgets. While he was standing in line, the person behind him told him about He asked me if I had visited that site before, and I had not. We decided to check it out together.

It turns out that owning an iPhone can be complicated sometimes. You have to buy an iPhone that will work on your specific carrier. Not all iPhones will work on all carriers. I’m not sure why that is, but I wish that things were simpler. The good news is that there’s a workaround. That’s what I learned from this site. Just because you bought an iPhone with the intent of using it on one carrier, doesn’t mean that you can’t tweak things a bit so that it works on a different carrier. Continue reading

I Love to Go Online to Play Slots

I wanted to find the best slots games online. I used to go to the casino and play, but my husband got a job there, which meant we were no longer eligible to play there. Just because I could not go in person did not mean that I would not be able to play again though. I knew that there were a lot of fun casino sites online that have a lot of slots machines, and I figured that this might even be better than going in person for a number of reasons.

The first is that I would be able to hop online any time I wanted. The second is because I would not have to spend an hour getting ready to go to one. Instead of showering and spending time on my hair and makeup, I could just grab my laptop, a cup of coffee, and sit on my couch in my pajamas and play slots. I just had to figure out which of the online casinos was the best. Continue reading
