I'm looking forward to the sunrise service where we will sing the old hymn "Christ the Lord is Risen Today!" It is a great time of celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Have a blessed day everyone.
Have a wonderful time at the doubleheader today!!

Happy Easter to you & your family, mgramsey!!

I'll let CAH answer that, but just wanted to let you know about two great apps that have to do with coupons/deals. Red Laser & Retail Me Not. You can find awesome deals on them!!

What amazed me about my new phone and new iPad was having Nook and Kindle on both of them! For some reason, it had never crossed my mind! And with Ryan mentioning using it for the Christmas Blossoms thread and with CAH mentioning using the phone for vacation pictures, it makes me glad I have it even more so!

I had just convinced myself "no," partly because I'm not a "gotta be connected 24/7" type, and a data plan would double our monthly bill (not including the cost of the phone). Time will tell if it will reach the point where one needs a smartphone to function effectively in the everyday world ... years ago I thought I'd never need or want a PC or Internet access or a laptop or a cellphone or an e-reader or a tablet.

But I think the Pros far outweigh the Cons! I have noticed how wise you are to research the products you need to buy. See, you do the legwork for the rest of us, LOL!

At least we saved money on data by using them as our "data".

There's another reason to upgrade! They are not always available to go online for us.

I am trying to validate my reasons for doing this. I still don't want to have a higher monthly phone bill!!! (Now I am talking myself out of it again).

This is hilarious, Ryan. I laughed out loud on this one!

I showed her my phone and told her I couldn't and she actually chuckled as she handed me hers and said, "Oh honey, here, just use mine."

That's pretty bad when your own grandma "out techs" you.
