2019 Spring March 28 Thursday

61 degrees this morning 61% humidity.

Wonderful day yesterday, a little windy. 

Read a an article about “thinking about weekends like a vacation”, which made a lot of sense.  

The general thrust of the article was that we need to rethink the weekends. I understand the essential concept, if you think of weekends in a different way, it won’t seem like the weekend is just another weekend, so to speak.

Of course, this assumes you like vacations.  

One reason I like to try to explain an article etc., is it helps me understand the concept if I try to explain it. In this case, I have a feeling I understood it intellectually, but I realized I really can’t explain when I started trying to explain it.  

It was kind of like the article about “time”.  I really was interested in the concept, but when I tried to explain it, I realized I understand the concept, but not well enough to explain it.

So I have two concepts to research.  One is the concept of “why we feel like we never have time” and the other is “planning your weekend like it is a vacation”!  

I understand the concept of both ideas, but apparently I need to research them some more.  

Reading, watching or listening to concepts like this and then realizing I understand the concept, but I really don’t comprehend how to implement it in reality.  

We had a short hail storm in this area last weekend, which, in some areas, destroyed some cars and some roofs.

Fortunately, as far as I can tell, we didn’t have any roof or car damage.  (The car was out during the hail storm.)

What has been rather disgusting is the calls we are receiving offering to come check our roof etc. (although we hang up as soon as we get the drift of the conversation).  We aren’t nice about it, but then I don’t see any reason to be nice to someone trying to scam us.

On some of the phone calls, the “scam” warning even comes up!

I am almost sure one of the numbers is a phone call where they ask for someone and when you tell them they have the wrong number, they say “now that we’re talking”, they bring up the “opportunity” to donate.  

i have read that “robp-calls” are up a lot.  it seems like, even with a service that is supposed to detect and block scam calls, (both home and cell), they still have increased.  

Thieves are always with us.  At least I have no conjunction about just hanging up or just refusing the call if it is on my cell phone.

That’s it for now, Thursday, March 28, 2019.
