Up until the point when the blizzard hit us here in Easton, Pennsylvania last week I was wondering if were going to have a bona fide major snow storm this winter. I wanted at least one before we entered Spring and Mother Nature certainly delivered. Last week’s storm won’t go down as a record setter, but it did shut everything down for about 24 hours when it arrived on the 14th of March. So, it was
I actually did make my way to work that day. I live about a mile from where I work so I just broke out all my cold weather gear and marched through the snow. It was fun.
Here are a few pictures a took during and after the storm.

Blogging , iPad , iPhone , Twitter
I’ve been away from this Blog for awhile and I truly regret that. Just been real busy the past month or two. However, I have a few thoughts and some media I’d like to share and plan to do that starting this month. I have noted that I recently purchased a new iPhone SE and iPad Pro. I also recently purchased a new MacBook Air, which I am really pleased with. Basically, all my Apple stuff had to be replaced at the same time. My iPhone 3GS and 1sr Gen iPad were great, but neither one could run the latest version iOS. Loved my trusty old MacBook, but it basically just died after 6 years of heavy use. I was hoping it might last until the end of the year, but it started crashing a lot more frequently. It really strained to run the latest version of OS X. No such problems with the latest MBA, which now packs 8 GB of RAM
More budget for these new toys was limited, but I think they they were good values, particularly the iPhone SE. I’m going to put a separate blog post just about my new Apple devices. I’d like to discuss them in more detail, but that topic deserves a separate post.
I wrote my last blog post on my iPad Pro, and I noted in that post that I planned to start publishing posts on a more frequent basis because of the mobility that that the iPad provides. I definitely plan to do so.

Internet , Twitter
I only recently found out that Twitter greatly expanded the number of Lists each account can maintain and the number of accounts that can added to each list. When Twitter first introduced Lists a few years ago each account could only have 20 Lists and each of those lists was limited to 500 other Twitter accounts. Twitter bumped up the number of Lists to 1,000 and the max number of accounts in each List from 500 to 5,000. Twitter increased the limits last year, but I had no idea. A few weeks ago I decided to try to add a 21st List for my account just for the heck of it and I was very pleasantly surprised to see that Twitter let me add it. I added another to bring me up to 22 Lists in total. I figured that Twitter might have finally doubled or tripled the List limits, but then I researched the matter and found out that Twitter went far, far beyond that. Awesome!!
I love my Twitter Lists. It makes Twitter much, much more useful in my opinion. I am now up to 26 Lists and counting. I will now be able add many Lists that are very specific. I think it safe to say that I won’t need anywhere near 1,000, but I could see ultimately adding a few dozen more Lists so that I can more effectively follow the Twitter accounts related to my favorite people, places and things.
