TMI this week from Sean, the Just A Jeep Guy

1. Do you still have a land line?
No, I got rid of it when I retired almost 7 years ago and no longer needed a fax machine.  I would have done it earlier because I hated all those annoying calls at dinnertime.

2. Which cell phone do you use and why?
I have had a Samsung Galaxy Note II for exactly one year now.  Being a smartphone, I cannot believe how much less I use my computer now. It is a wonderful gadget and I spend entirely too much time playing with it, especially playing Solitaire.

3. Which provider do you use? Is there really a difference?
AT&T, which I have been using for many years.  One reason is that they have a cell tower very close to my farm in rural NC and I get great service everywhere I go.

4. If you call someone and they don't pick up, do you leave a message? 
Most of the time.  But phone tag (voicemail) can become very frustrating.

5. When you have a missed call (with no message), do you call the person back?
Almost never, but yesterday my doctor’s office called without leaving a message, so I did call them back later.

6. Do you txt willingly or reluctantly? How are your skills? 
The only person that I text with is my older son, because he loves to text and does not like to talk on the phone.  I would rather talk than text.  I am pretty good at texting, because my phone completes words and makes suggestions, so I can be pretty quick.

7. Has your cell replaced your camera?
Pretty much as it has more pixels than my Nikon point and shoot, which is about 8 years old.  And I take more pictures now because it is always with me.  For the past two months, I have been undergoing wound (ulcer) treatment on my leg, which doesn't want to heal because of lymphedema and diabetes. Twice a week when I go to physical therapy to get my leg unna booted, I take pictures of the wound with a tape measure to document any improvement.  I now have a whole folder of those photos.

8. Selfies....
In my case they provide too much age related TMI, but since you asked . . .

9. How many apps do you have? Which is your favorite and why?
Wait, while I count . . . uh, 45.  Some are medically related such as keeping records of my blood glucose levels, my INI (blood thinner) levels, etc.  My favorites are reading emails, news articles, and of course, the aforementioned Solitaire.

10. What would life be like with no cell/smart phone for one month?
I would go stark raving mad, because I even read books on my phone or my Kindle.  Don’t need it much as a phone, but I surely do like all the other apps.
