Picks & Pans for 2013

If you’re looking for adventure – I suggest giving some of these beauties a try. I have been loving my time spent with them. (Analog. This year’s “picks” are all analog! I hadn’t planned it that way, but I smiled when I realized…)   From…

The Dog and Bone (Cockney rhyming slang for “phone”)

My HTC “took a dump” about a week and a half ago, and while it’s now sitting with the service provider for repair, I stuck its SIM card into one of my older, less “smart” phones, with a smaller screen, way fewer gadgets, gizmos and widgets. It works great for…
