Did You Know About Wi-Fi?

Did you know about Wi-Fi?

While playing a game the other day I learned some things about Wi-Fi that I did not know. First of all, I did not know it is a name brand; it even has its own logo. It is always capitalized and hyphenated and doesn't really stand for anything. The slogan about "wireless fidelity" is just that, a slogan used by the company to help consumers understand and remember what Wi-Fi can do for them. For a better understanding, do a little reading on the development of Wi-Fi. 

Did You Know How to Get Help With Resume Writing?

Did you know how to get help with resume writing?

I talked with a lady yesterday whose brother is a recent college graduate. She was telling me how she looked at his resume yesterday and that he needed help with resume writing. I would guess that many college grads do need help with writing their resume. I told her that my husband recently had his resume redone by a resume writing company. It was great because they know what employers are looking for, the right keywords to use and how to word past experience. It seems like a good idea for anyone looking for work to get help with resume writing.

Did You Know My Daughter Got Her Driver's License?

Did you know my daughter got her driver's license?

She is really excited and I think we are glad too. Now we have someone to do errands for us again! I do think things will be easier in some ways now. But having another driving teenager just adds one more thing to the list to worry about!

Did You Know About Choosing a Major?

Did you know about choosing a major?

As my son is entering his sophomore year of college, he is still undecided as to what to declare as his major. It seems to be a really tough job, especially for guys. I know he has leaned toward communications, finance, business and management. It seems there are a spectrum of jobs he could get in these fields. I think he would be good at any of these, in particular some sort of management or human resource job at any company from business insurance companies to IT companies to non-profit organizations. The school he is looking at transferring to has a Business Communications degree. It seems like it might be a good fit for him.

Did You Know a Good Way to Wet Watercolor Paints for a Toddler?

Did you know a good way to wet watercolor paints with a toddler?

Today I let the toddler do some watercolor painting. She mostly wanted to keep dipping the brush in the water which ended up cleaning off the paint causing her to paint mostly with water. So instead of having her dip the brush into the water, I wet each color of paint with some water from a medicine dropper. (She was not concerned about not mixing colors; in fact she mostly wanted to mix the colors.) It ended up being a bit better for her and less messy overall. And prevented a power struggle over the paint brush in a cup of water!

Did You Know About Grocery Shopping With Your Husband?

Did you know about grocery shopping with your husband?

We don't shop much together. But the other day we did go to the grocery store together, along with the toddler we keep. My husband was pretty well behaved this time. Usually on past trips he is getting all kinds of stuff and putting it in the cart (at least this time I knew what he was putting in!) And then the worst is when he walks around eating in the store!! He will open cookies usually ( we do pay for them of course!) Once he even ate a banana. When I asked him how we would pay for it since it was by weight, he got another one to bring to the register to pay for the one he had eaten!! Silly guy! At least this trip was better. At the checkout he loaded every thing on the belt except for the dog food. That's when he asked the clerk for her Honeywell Barcode Scanner so he could scan the sack without having to unload and reload it. Overall, not a bad shopping trip!
