Wishing my Jewish readers a (belated) Shana Tova, a happy, healthy, peaceful year for all.
Remember my complaint last week about my sluggish Android phone? I’ve got good news, bad news and good news. I fixed my phone! While trying to clear my phone’s system cache (a fix I found online for Androids that got sluggish after a recent software update) I accidentally wiped my entire phone, meaning I deleted everything. The last good news was that my backup worked, and I didn’t lose anything important. My phone is all better now, and don’t have to buy a new one just yet.
See ya on the Net,
