Back to What Passes As Normal (and a Tip for 2020)
Friday, January 03, 2020
As it was the last day of my Christmas Break, I found myself thinking, "One last day before I have to get serious again!", but it just seemed so practical to count up all the projects that I have lined up for this spring, and get an early start right now.... don't wait for the deadline but get those ducks lining up now...
And it's a good thing that I did, because I can see that there are some details that require a few timely nudges before I can consider them DONE and ready to go. (I DO SO detest last minute surprises!)
And there are also a few technology challenges for stuff that I've never done before that I need to figure out... like how to utilise Powerpoint for a presentation from my I-pad (have always used a laptop, but I KNOW that people DO use I-pads for this)
AND I need to revive my blog that is not Spark related, the one that I set up to talk about recycling books, and all the things I've produced from books that were discarded... (the BOOKS were discarded, not the THINGS)
Anyhow, I DID hear something worth passing on about 2020, and THAT was a suggestion that everybody write out "2020" everytime, instead of just "20", since "20" is easily morphed (by a bad guy) into any date that starts with "20--", whether it has already happened or is still to come, for example 2011, 2022, 2053, etc.... at first I thought that was a bit silly, but the more I think about it, the more I see their point... Use it or not, but it's not that hard to write 2020 to me.
