Testing Siri

How to use Siri on iPhone. First press the home button at the bottom of the screen, wait until you hear the Siri sound and then start talking. Examples would be: write an email, send a text message, find Ace Hardware. Follow the prompts that Siri directs you to. (I started this email with Siri, then edited it manually.)

It is time to make gravestone markers with the first one going into Llano Cemetery in Amarillo, Texas. The stamps…… http://magneticpoetry.com/collections/poetry-stone-accessories Now to find something appropriate to “press into” this first stone. Ideas such as a toy car for a child, rhubarb leaves for the pattern, pebbles for Jewish persons, beach glass, shells from California showing Grandpa that at least one of his children made it out of poverty, sand dollars for its pattern? Pennies are a given so that we can use a metal detector on it later. Maybe I will make a stone for the others in Llano Cemetery who do have a small stone just in case it gets lost or destroyed. I still need to build a wood frame, still need to buy the proper mortar mix, need to plan for how to do it on the road in possibly extreme heat like maybe needing to put a wet towel over the stone while it cures and without my frame if on the road (i.e.: buy single use cake pan, cut the bottom out and set the stone in it, then maybe get a FindAGrave or BillionGraves volunteer to remove the cake pan once it cures). I think I will make additional “brick” sizes as they tend to hold up well and they are easy. I can stamp my own family name into the stone with the date showing who came to visit and where from.

I don’t trust Google with my documents. Period. So what do I use? https://www.dropbox.com What’s for lunch? (What is Dropbox? A place to save your documents and other storage that you can access from anywhere a computer and network is.)
