Tech Tip To Save Your Date Night Out

8 Oct

Are you planning a big date with your significant other? The next time you go out to dinner with your spouse, “Don’t go to a place that has TVs hanging everywhere!” Try picking a place without TVs hanging everywhere because they are a significant distraction. You already have enough tech distractions with smart phones and watches, why add another one? For me, it is easier to focus on the conversation with less tech distractions.

What Telemarketer is Calling You?

24 Sep

What was that phone number that just called, didn’t leave a message and you didn’t recognize it? If you are not sure, you should first cross-check it with 1-800-notes. The socially moderated site allows you to lookup the number and then review comments from other users who generally reveal who is calling. You can also of course add your experience about the number as well. The next time you get a call and you aren’t sure who’s on the other end, first try this website.

Etymology Is A Good First Step

13 Dec

If you are in a conversation and you don’t know the answer, where do you go? Have you considered looking up the origin? Find the key term mentioned and look up it’s Etymology. Etymologies are not definitions; they’re explanations of what our words meant and how they sounded 600 or 2,000 years ago. If you want to have a good conversation, start with the etymology.

Here is something I looked up on Etymoline. The word “Volcano” originated in the 1610s, from Italian vulcano “burning mountain,” from Latin Vulcanus “Vulcan,” Roman god of fire, also “fire, flames, volcano” (see Vulcan). The name was first applied to Mt. Etna by the Romans, who believed it was the forge of Vulcan. Earlier form in English was volcan (1570s), from French.

Next time you are in a conversation and you want to contribute – think about looking up the etymology of a keyword in the conversation.
