Must Have Smartphone Accessory

Very early this morning a truck or a bus cut our low lying electrical cable from the street to the house. pulling out the pole and disconnecting our alarm box for the electrical fence. I had to make numerous phone calls to the alarm company, police, electric  company and as it turns out to the landlord because the electric company would not connect the electricity until we had a new pole. Add to the confusion my wife was pet sitting and I was supposed to meet her at noon

Cut to the chase my phone  after 25 phone calls my phone battery was at 15 % at noon. Needless to say without electricity I could not charge my smartphone battery. To the rescue came my Aukey quick charger and within 30 minutes I was at full power. A $20 gadget is priceless during an emergency.



Out Of Sorts

On Tuesday Aug. 16th I am having eye surgery at Exa Laser Clinic in Cuenca. It’s a two part surgery. The first is a vitrectomy to repair a thickening of the retina wall and the other part is a cataract removal with an addition of a lens. I had this operation on an emergency basis two years ago on the right eye. The surgeon injects gas to keep the retina in place. The difficult part is laying face down when the gas is still in the eye. I should be back in the saddle in 10 days.


My Prisma Addiction

Prisma runs on both IOS and Android and for the last 4 days I have spent about 30 hours messing with the app. Do not even think of downloading the app if you have an important deadline due. But, if you have some free time and want to be creative then run, don’t walk to Prisma and download the app.

I created a youtube video below to show the transformation from original to the prisma effect. Enjoy.
