FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Complacency or Stupidity, Your Choice.

I recently fried one of my favorite toys. My 7” digital photo frame is now a perfectly good, electronic paper weight. I hadn’t changed the photos for awhile and I took the thing off the wall to put in a new SD card. I couldn’t get it to turn off so I just pulled out the SD card while it was running. The photo frame took severe umbrage to that and now displays lots of very colorful vertical lines instead of my photos.

I know better, you shut down equipment before doing stuff like that. Sadly I ignored what I know and fried something which gives me a lot of pleasure. I will buy a new one and it will be better. Technology marches ahead and that frame was first generation. Still, I feel like a lost an old friend. I often found myself totally lost in watching the photos pop up. I reveled in the joy my grandchildren showed when they saw them selves on the screen. Yes, this is much ado about no big thing but I hate feeling stupid and that is what fried the frame. Take heed, learn from someone else’s error, fried eggs are good, fried frames, not so much.
