I have a book in each room I use plus one in my handbag. They have coloured sections and then as LLL says I am using real restraint to keep it to 4 books. They are hole punched so after editing if they should be kept they can be filed. I have account files going back to 1973. I hate to throw paper records away, that's one reason for moving on to notebooks - once in a file - it's there forever. ;)

MD, I think you answered my question in your last post. I don't have any paper bills or accounts. I do everything online and have spreadsheets for everything.

I do have ONE and only one large space monthly calendar that is the Bible of appointments, when/where/how etc. I can't live without it. I never liked cyber calendars I wanted 1 hard copy that is staples in the middle I can see, touch, scribble on and use. Always get the 12 months of the year kind and I will keep them for the entire year plus beyond in case I ever have to refer back for something.

Just back from a morning of swimming at the Aquatic Center with the grandkids and daughter. Their dad is 'on call' this weekend through his work so just us guys went swimming. We get there 10:30am-ish so we can swim and hot tub for an hour as the water slides don't open 'til 11:30am which is the highlight of the morning.

Sitting in the hot tub is the highlight of my morning and definitely feels good on the bones ;)

I prefer paper to the cyber world - after all what if I wanted to know how much I spent on hay in 1973 ? I couldn't find it on line. :lol: :D

My spreadsheets go back over 20 years. I can look back at what my electricity and gas costs were, what my salary was and what expenditure we had BUT what really is the use of that today? I am a bit of a numbers nerd and often play with numbers just for the sake of it. Any comparisons are really valueless.
My spreadsheets are of course only on my computer and not in cyber space. ;) :lol:

I'm only trying to justify my untenable position. I just like paper, it's not "better" :lol: :D

I dislike January and todays gloom reinforces my wish that the month can pass as quickly as it likes. At least there is already a detectable lengthening of the hours of daylight.
I don't have any reason to venture out but maybe tomorrow I will take a trip into town with my wife to collect some meds and have some lunch. And that will be the highlight of my week :lol:

I made it to the Doctor today and was introduced to a tall, slim and extremely good looking young man with something very familiar about him.

I was his last patient for the day, and we were chatting and he said "My Father is Egyptian" can't get away from them can you? Though to be fair he was more helpful and informative than most I've met.

After the Doctor I caught a taxi to the middle of the City, sorted a few bank details out - found I was much better off than I thought - probably because I've hardly left the house for 3 months meaning no spontaneous spending. :oops:

I thought I'd walk to the second taxi rank, it's only about 200yds, but halfway there I knew I'd made a mistake. Too much too soon. I could hardly get in the taxi. When the driver had put my wheels in the back, I sked his name - "Omar" he said, which pleased my immensely - they call me Um Omar or Mother of Omar in Luxor.

I'm so stiff I'm committed to a little walk at least once a day for the next week but looks like I'm going into remission which is very encouraging. :up

We have a team of eye doctors at the eye clinic that my wife and I attend, MD. Two of those are Egyptians, one did both of my cataract operations and the other we see on regular reviews. Both are very good :up
Mr Raza the surgeon always has Egyptian music playing in the background :lol:

This morning while eating my breakfast I watched on TV "Rocket City Rednecks" - fascinating seeing them making a gun to propel a long piece of 2x4 at over 100 miles an hour!

Why? To test their tornado shelter made from easily obtainable cheap components.

The gun worked, then they dropped a car on the shelter, absolutely rock solid. So the hope is that for less than $2,000 a tornado shelter for 4 people could be built in a day from scratch.

Fascinating. :up
