1.) It is FREEZING outside. The high is going to be 5 degrees.

2.) By the end of the week it will be in the 30’s. On Sunday it’s supposed to get up to 48 degrees! Yippeee!

3.) I finished my book. It was good. It was so good I’m going to read it again. This time I will read it through a different lens.

4.) Don has to use jumper cables to start his truck up every time he needs to drive it. It’s making some strange noises. The days on that truck are numbered.

5.) Our van is 6 years old. Our truck is 15 years old. We like not having vehicle payments. We will drive our vehicles into the ground before we buy new ones.

6.) My Verizon Wireless LG mobile phone is suckin' pretty badly. Every now and again the power totally craps out for no reason. Found out today they came out with a newer larger battery for that phone. I'm going to have them send me the new battery. I've already had them replace my phone once before so we'll try the new larger battery out and see how that works.

7.) My SIL has a KIN TWOm and loves it. It has an 8.0 megapixel camera, touch screen, QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM Radio, and more! I've got my eye on that phone. My 2 year contract is up in July so who knows?

8.) The neat part about the KIN TWOm is that it's got Wi-Fi. It's a smart phone without having to purchase a data plan. Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about.

9.) I'm ready for spring! Then comes summer!

10.) I have lots of household projects coming up. A LOT to do inside this house of ours. FUN times!!!

PS If you have a KIN TWOm will you please tell me what you think of it? What do you like about your KIN TWOm? What do you hate about your KIN TWOm? Thanks!!


  1. Now that iPhone is on Verizon just get one of those! Happy Tuesday.

  2. I like the fact that I don't have to purchase a data plan with the KIN TWOm. Know what I mean?

  3. I and my son both have an LG Razr (2? I think), and we both experienced unpredictable shutoff. It's a known problem with this phone, and I don't think it has to do anything with the battery. Did the new battery resolve the problem for you?

    My son upgraded to the Kin TWOm about a month ago for the same reason you expressed. So far, his experience is "good". Neither he nor I have any experience with a smartphone, and that is probably a good thing. I've heard that people who jump from a smartphone to the Kin TWOm absolutely hate it because the interface is non-intuitive compared to their old smartphone. (Figures - it's Microsoft!)

    I've been putting off ordering my Kin TWOm to see how my son likes it, but I think I'm going to order it sometime next week.

  4. I don't think it has anything to do with the batter either.

    I've had the new battery in for a few days now and my phone has not magically shut off on it's own.

    When I put the new battery side-by-side with the old batter it was exactly the same size.

    Go Figure!?

  5. Update: I wound up going with the DROID 2 Global by MOTOROLA. I'm very happy with my Smartphone. Love it!!!

    Have the KIN TwoM and it's not what I expected. Can't download apps or ringtones on it. There's no IM feature and I need a facebook application.

    I wouldn't get this phone unless they made an app store for it within the near future.

  7. I don't think a data plan comes with that phone.


Thanks for the comment
