Flash Still Avaliable on Android Download Now

Where's my Adobe Flash install?

Google Play removed Adobe's Flash Player from their website.  Not to worry, flash can still be downloaded from the Adobe Flash Archive.  Since it's not on Google Play, you'll have to by pass the security settings to allow content from an untrusted source.  Whether or not Flash continues to be a viable option for mobile media devices remains to be seen but contrary to popular belief, it can still be installed.  How long do you think Flash will last on the Droid?  Rumor has it that it is quickly loosing support in Windows 8.  What do you think?

wall outlet new three prongI haven’t written anything in a while as we’ve been tied up with a remodel job. New flooring; kitchen cabinets; painting; plumbing repairs; and refinishing wood floors are all on the agenda. Somewhere in this do-it-yourself construction job is the basis for a great article. So instead of that let me tell you about my efforts to replace all the duplex outlets in our 1960 house…

Should I Drop Our Home Phone?

antique phone oldI am currently in the middle of this conundrum about whether to keep or cancel our home phone line. We are currently paying about $60 a month for this landline and with our cell phones we hardly seem to use it at all anymore. So the analysis and second-guessing is in full swing as I try to answer this question. What would you do….
