PowerPoint Presentations

Each of my kids recently worked on slide show presentations for school. One was giving a report on a book she had recently read; the other was reporting on an internship she had just completed.

Enter Medical ID Info on Your Cell Phone

My little brother recently taught me a lesson. While growing up that is not something that I would have readily admitted—after all, what could a little brother possibly know that a big sister doesn’t?  But my brother told me about a valuable cell phone feature that I knew nothing about.
