In case you’ve been under a rock, UConn won the NCAA mens championship basketball title. The women also won the championship last night.

After the win, Dunkin Donuts’ created a promotion for CT, excluding Fairfield County. Why couldn’t they work with the Tri-State area guys and include Fairfield County? There is a UConn – Stamford campus after all.

medium 8016339224 Always have a backup plan when dealing with Paratransit

Before Thanksgiving, I’d scheduled a pickup time for Nana so that she could spend time with the family.

We were outside waiting for the van before our assigned time, but no one came.

Turns out, the driver was on the wrong street.

I called the office and they told me that there was nothing I could do.

After having a nervous fit for about 5 minutes, we received a miracle.

A neighbor gave us a ride to an accessible subway station from which we travelled the whole way.

The lesson here, always carry cab fare. You never know when a situation like this will  come up.

Sing

January 5, 2014

Tweet What song or lyrics will be forever tied to 2013 in your mind? What songs are you excited to keep with you through 2014? For this, I actually had to look at my iTunes download list. Most of the tunes I listen to are “old school”, so if I downloaded anything, it would of [...]

Hasten

January 3, 2014

Tweet What new trick or shortcut did you learn in 2013? What do you want to speed up in 2014? I learned that I don’t need cable. I had let go of several services I was paying for, including cable 1 year ago. I’ve re-learned about the digital converter thanks to a family member and [...]
