A Little of This and That

Phones. So many people of a certain age – usually not elderly – have given up their landlines. They have given out their number to friends, family and others who they feel might need them, but that leaves everyone else out as they are not in any phone books, and there are other legitimate callers who may need to call them. I don’t know what the solution to this might be. Do you?

Scams. They are often aimed at older people, but no one is immune and the scammers are getting more and more devious. Never never give out personal information if you are not positive this is not a scam. If it is a legitimate call, they will be able to work out a way to call or write to you. And one of the most egregious is when they say a grandchild is in a jam and needs money.

Environment. We are at a tipping point as far as climate change goes, but we can at least try to make a difference by changes in our own behavior. Plastics of course are a big threat, but we have a start on that. We could put on our seatbelt and make any other adjustments before we start our cars. Of course you say that makes such a small saving, but look around a parking lot and think of all the starts and stops you make when you are running errands. I’m up there as far as age goes, so what happens will not make much difference to me, but I think of the future of our planet. Use your imagination and see what you can do.
