Galaxy Active2 Review with Accessories

While I got the 42 mm Galaxy Watch when it came out, I found it a bit heavy and the rose gold finish to be little restricting when changing out bands. When the Active2 came out and it had a speaker I decided to give the 40mm option a try. It's lighter and smaller which is a bonus for smaller wrists like mine. While it has a smaller battery, it recharges quickly. I usually top up the charge while eating breakfast.

Galaxy Note 10 accessory review

Winning combo
I dropped my S8 a few weeks ago and replaced it with a Note 10. That means the hunt was on for a case. I also wanted to have a cardholder and took the opportunity to try a PopSocket. The winner in this whole thing was Amazon followed by Best Buy.

Bennie may be leaving puppyhood. Maybe.

New happy place
I have a bunch of Bennie photos and I haven't updated for a couple months and Bennie has changed quite a bit OR we've settled into a routine we can live with. I have to admit, I wondered if it would ever happen.

Post Election thoughts

Thankfully the election is over and I can stop seeing smarmy political faces interrupting Property Brothers. Now it's time to get to work. There were good ideas floated by all the parties. Can the parties work together or are they too concerned about their base?

Shiny new things - planned and unplanned

I was doing pretty good budgeting my allowance so I replaced my Galaxy Watch with a Galaxy Watch Active 2. Then I dropped my phone on a rough cement driveway.I wasn't even worried initially because I knew it hit the case edge. It must have hit a stone as it landed the second time. Budget blown
