Our neighborhood shared cat......

Our main cat (old cat, actually) Timothy is now a neighborhood puss. He's taken to spending extended periods of time with our neighbors across the street, Bob and Marie....loves to hang out in their sunroom, follow them through the house like he lives there etc.  He USED to be somewhat of a recluse but now he's the Titus Village Social Butterfly! :).

"Of the 2,709,918 Americans who served in Vietnam, Less than 850,000 are estimated to be alive today, with the youngest American Vietnam veteran's age approximated to be 54 years old

Never got to see The Little Mermaid tonight....

So, we arrived at the Theater, picked up a few glasses of wine and our Playbill and sat down. The General Manager and Artistic Director Steve Heron gives his opening welcome speil, the lights go down, the music starts and the curtain opens and BANG...the theater is hit by lightening and they lose the sound and light boards.....even the theater house lights. It's all cooked. Ah well!!!
Note on August 16th:  Titusville Playhouse called me at 0930 today to reschedule us for an upcoming show. Long story short, we'll be back in the audience next Saturday night, not in our normal front-row center seats, but in the Orchestra section. It's all good, and they are a GREAT organization ;).

Update, August 23rd:  We attended the 8 P.M. performance on Saturday August 22nd and loved the show.  The costuming and staging were terrific, and even though we were in the back of the theater we could see and hear everything perfectly.  Love Titusville Playhouse!!

Fox On The Fairway, Melbourne Civic Theater

Last night we attended the opening night, at the Melbourne Civic Theater, of a farce comedy "Fox On The Fairway".   It is a GREAT comedy that will have you laughing and grinning through the entire performance....can't say enough positive things about the play, or the excellent cast that made it come alive.  It runs weekends through the end of August.....get thee tickets!!!

Mixing and matching technology....works for me!

Yesterday I downloaded and installed Windows 10 on my old Acer Win 7 notebook.  The process went very smooth, everything seems to work (and better) and the old girl isn't chugging as much....seems to like her new brain so to speak.  Just a few months ago we downloaded Google Photo's, which is "cross platform"...works on Windows and shines on IOS, taking all my photo's and putting them in the cloud with free storage, and very good manipulation and editing tools. Lastly, the Apple Watch has not transformed my digital life but I use it, and really like it....especially the phone and text interfaces and the reminder notifications.  So, long story short, in a very brief period of time we've utilized apps from Microsoft, Apple and Google...mixed and matched apps that make my computing life better across platforms.  Not one of those companies does everything I want and need...together and properly paired,  things work.
