Second tasting…thanks to Fong Mong Tea!

I have a new iPad…woo hoo! Bound to happen that I’d come home to Apple. My first computer was a Mac. I lived in Cupertino (Home of Apple) and worked off and on in Apple offices (not uncommon in Silicon Valley). After 4.5 years with a HP Laptop I’ve seen the light.
Yes, I have to pay for it over time…but it had to be done soon. My computer was whimpering, letting me know that a fatal crash was imminent.
My tea drinking is more like work today. I hate that!!!
In the middle of transfering ‘stuff’ from the HP to an external hard drive (for my iPad), setting up all the things I need on the iPad, erasing my personal ‘Stuff’ from my Kindle Fire to give to my granddaughter :) my tea review is going to sound aweful!

Sorry Fong Mong Tea!

Why didn’t I choose a crappy tea on a mentally challenging day? After all, my abilities are slow…really slow!
On stressful or busy days, everyone needs good tea!
Crappy tea fails to make you feel better.
Bad tea never stops you cold in your tracks and reminds you to take a second and reflect…
“Uh huh…I can do this task…I am drinking a very floral tea with a cool mint undertone that is wonderful. This is a tea I remember liking before…sweet and fruity.”
This is what I did.
I drank a really good tea on a stressful day! I drank several small steepings and smiled at the sweet floral flavor.

Then I went on with some clarity to finish more of my iPad setup.
I’m a step closer to a blog.

Typing this all up on your ipad?

Michelle

Congrats on getting through this on an iPad! I hate typing on mine. But I hope you enjoy it! :)

Bonnie

Uh, not yet….I’m doing a back-up on my old laptop to an external harddrive I bought but I forgot to get a bluetooth mouse! I did activate the keyboard though. Doing a bunch of other stuff, you know. Adding the apps.

Bonnie

Michelle…I have a KEYBOARD…regular kind with my iPad…cuz it would drive me crazy to just use the iPad all the time.

Michelle

Aha! Definitely. I need to get me one of those :)

Dylan Oxford

Yeah, I’m typing this on my touch pad (HPs iPad knockoff), and while everything else is great, typing leaves a lot to be desired. Strangely, my Nook Color was easier to type on, just the way the keyboard fit the screen was a lot more comfortable for some reason

Bonnie

I made sure to get a case with a real keyboard so I could use it like a laptop when I want to really work. Also, I’ve got to go back and pick up a bluetooth mouse. When I’m sick and need to not type at all, I have the option of talking into the iPad which may come in handy. Now and then I have migraines that last days and have had them go on for weeks. They’re regular in any case all the time. If I could sit at a desk all day I would have considered more options.

Skulleigh

Do you have a desktop machine also, that you’re backing the iPad up to?

Bonnie

getting rid of my desktop…so I got a new external drive

Skulleigh

becomes a buttinski for a moment If you’re not going to have a computer at all other than the iPad, how are you going to back up the iPad? If anything goes wrong, you’d have to reset to factory settings, do all of your updates again, then install all of your apps again.

Bonnie

external drive and cloud….I’m not adding a zillion apps…don’t stress…I’ve been soing this since the 80’s and have a cloud backup too. Apps are easy to reinstall, it’s photos, writing,video etc that you don’t want to lose. I did consulting with some business managers before I did this so that it would fit my needs correctly. I appreciate your concern though. You’re thinking about safety which is good.

Skulleigh

Cool, it sounds like you have a plan. I’m a techie for a living, so I automatically think worst case scenario :D
