New bed finally and phone review  
At last we got our new bed and this time it was the right one. The delivery came way earlier than expected and they didn't even give me time they just called and said they were outside. That was annoying but glad to get it over with early. I could tell right away this bed is softer and will be much better. Later today I went to Walmart and got new covers for it. I got more Jurassic World Sheets and will post that pic in time. I'm looking forward to a good sleep tonight.

I have finally made that review of my phone that I said I would share with you guys. So here is the video.

I made only tiny progress on the Easter drawing so I guess it won't be finished before the end of April after all. Tomorrow Chris and I will work around the house so I will probably not have time to draw or work on it. But I do have an April drawing which is Bringer of Light so that's good.

Hooray, you got your new bed and it was the right one this time! You will be much more comfortable tonight. I like that you have got new Jurassic Park sheets for it, too.

I like your review of your phone. Samsung is a good brand. Too bad that they upgraded the OS. I like your ring tone and I don't think there's a problem with the sound. I especially like the earth app and the radar. Hmmm...does that mean I'm a nerd, too? I also like that you can customise the background. And that's good that you can keep your apps on the second page. And that's very, very good that you can block numbers. Great that you can make the battery last almost a week. Like my old phone! Like you, I don't use a lot of features.

We slept much better last night. It was softer so I'm glad I caught the mistake in time and that they changed it for us. It looks neat with the Jurassic Park sheets. I must post that pic.

Thanks. The OS is the worst thing. The settings menu is terrible now and harder to find things. But I like everything other than that. Ha yes. I make the joke that N in the personality types actually stands for Nerd. Almost all N types are nerds. I need to make a review just for those apps because they have so much to them. Yes I dont like a cluttered home page so I have the main apps on page two and a blank page three in case this page fills up. Well that won't happen I'm sure as I don't need a lot of apps. The only other ones I might download would be a converter to know temps, distances etc for other countries. And a tides app for when I get back into kayaking or boating.

That's good you got a new bed finally.

I watched your phone review yesterday. I don't need a smart phone either which is why I have a pay as you go flip phone.
Desthagirion on April 30th, 2017 11:40 am (UTC)
Yeah, it finally worked out.

No need to change if you're happy.

Thanks. Yes I'm glad the issue has been resolved with this bed and all is well now. I can feel the difference from the other bed that this is better. This one has good reviews and the other did not too.

Yes Samsung makes good phones. Android messed things up with the new OS. The settings menu is terrible now and it was so much easier with bigger nicer icons in the old OS. How I wish I could force it to change back.

I'm glad you like the apps. I need to review them individually especially Terra Time as it does so much.

I love the waterproof feature as I am outside a lot and go to parks. I can just imagine my phone falling in a puddle during the rain so it would be good that nothing happens to it if that happens.

That's great that you got the right bed that is soft as well as getting Jurassic World sheets.

Your Samsung Galaxy S7 looks nice, though that is annoying about the upgrade and the changes they did like getting rid of the color and stars for the globe. Glad to hear that battery life is good on your Samsung, that is one of the most obnoxious things I have to put up with my iPhone as it's battery is lowsy. I like your backgrounds you have on them as well.

I look forward to the Easter drawing when it's done and it's nice that you have you have the April drawing of Bringer of Light.

Yes it's good that problem is finally solved. Now we can rest at night.

Yes if only it had never upgraded. I wish I could reset it. I would do it right away. Yeah I have a good battery life on this phone but also I just don't use it for things that eat up the battery. Thanks. It's nice to be able to customize the backgrounds.

Thanks. Too bad I didn't finish it this month but now I can take a bit more time in May.

Finally you got the right bed!

I enjoyed your cellphone review, i generally don't care about phones, cellphones and reviews about them but you managed to make it very pleasant. Another reason i am generally not interested in cellphones reviews is because i have a minimalistic knowledge about them XD
I love your attitude towards cellphones, i see many people using them for the most futile reasons and i like you decided to put apps on your second page, good!
I agree cellphones are meant for staying in contact with people (i brought mine to stay in contact with my mother in case i get home late) and for business-related things.
The weather app is a smart choice since it's important to know how weather might change.
The colournote is my favourite app, i like to keep organised my day even if i tend to do it in my mind but for studies i use Evernote a cloud-based note-taking and file-storage application that synchronizes data across multiple devices. For my studies it's great because it can be your digital file cabinet, note-taking tool, daily journal, task or project management system, recipe-keeper, and more. I downloaded it for my pc, so evrytime i surf Internet.

I feel you about texing, i hate it. When i have to text sms i take ages DX DX DX plus my thumb starts hurting. When i am fast at texting i spend 7-10 minutes XD. I agree cellphones are for talking.

Tara? It sounds amazing as name, curiously Tara means "Star" in Sanskrit and Tara is the name of a Hindu astral goddess, the wife of Brhaspati. She was abducted by Soma, a god of the moon, leading to a great war that was only ended when Brahma intervened and released her but in as Devi she is consort of Shiva. This is also the name of a Buddhist deity (a female Buddha). After colournote, Tara is my second favourite app of yours *_*

NOAA is another amazing and useful app, i really love the choice of apps. You chose useful apps not nonsense apps. A question: does NOAA work only for USA or does it shows weather changes in other parts of world?

Hey i love JP ringtone remix, it's freaking catchy. I could dance for hours but i am terrible at dancing XD XD

I am pleased with the way you approach and use cellphones *thumbsup*

Speaking of cellphones i have to buy a new one, mine (actually it belonged to my father, it is 11-12 years old) is starting to have problems. When someone calls me or i call someone for my business-related things i can't hear well his/her voice. I hear a lot of interferences. I asked why it happened and i discovered this happened to my neighbour too. He has my same kind of cellphone, a Nokia (don't aske me the model because i have zero knowledge of cells) and phone company doesn't work anymore for that old type of cellphones so i have two options: changing phone company but i had bad experiences with this or getting a new phone. My cellphone is black and white, it has no internet connection and i am satisfied with it.

You know i hate them but i need them *sigh-->(joking tone)
So this Wednesday i will buy a new one, i know Nokia is producing new cellphones very similar in appearance and functions to old kind but larger. They only cost 70-90 euros.

Thank you for this review i enjoyed it :)

Yes the new bed is right now and I like how it feels. I guess the more I use it the softer it will get too. I could feel the difference the moment I sat down.

Thank you. I'm glad you liked my review especially if it is a type of review you would not normally watch. I do like this phone a lot. I am very happy with it. I will do a review of the apps on their own later on to show more details because they do a lot of stuff.

Yes I really don't use my phone that much and once I get the whole house buying thing sorted I will use it even less than I do now. Mostly to call and text Chris will be it. Right now he and my realtor are my most used contacts. Oh gosh it happened today. I went out and didn't bring my real camera. So a family of cranes walked by. I pulled out my cellphone with its crappy 5x zoom. No awesome 65x. And the cranes ran away with the cute baby and I never got a good photo with my phone. That's not what it's for. I should have brought my real camera so I was kicking myself for that. Always when you think nothing will happen is when something amazing happens.

The weather app is great. I came with the phone. I don't know if I can see cities from other countries. I'll have to try that and see if it lets me.

I LOVE Color Note. It's so simple to use and basic. I'll make a post on it later on. All the apps deserve their own reviews.

Sorry it's called Terra Time. "Earth Time". It is an amazing app! I just love it so much. It definitely needs its own review.

NOAA is an amazing app. Unfortunately it is only for the USA because it is by National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Association. I wish it did the whole world because I would love to spin the earth around and see the weather radar live anywhere on Earth. I have seen radar apps for other countries but I don't know which ones are good or bad.

Here is where I got the Jurassic Park techno version.
I have an edited version that cuts out all the animal noises and you just here the computer voice say 3-2-1- and then the song starts. IF you can't find the song I can post the mp3 for you on Send Space.

Oh that sucks you have to get a new phone but if the service you have is bad then you should. That's why I got this one. I was not happy with the last one and I was getting ripped off. Well I recommend Samsung products. Chris and I have been happy with our phones. He has the Galaxy J7. IT is less expensive but is bigger than mine. I would recommend mine but it is an expensive phone. I don't know if there are any deals now because I think the new S8 is out so mine's already "out dated". Another thing I hate about phones and things that have models. I don't need the latest greatest every time. I have no desire to "upgrade" now that I know the 8 is out. I don't care. I'm happy with mine no need to change anything.

Thanks I'm glad you liked my video.

If you do other technological devices review i will watch them because i like the way you do them.
Thank you for the link of Jurassic Park techno version i enjoyed it *thumbsup*

Ah too bad that would be awesome if it were for all world and not only for USA. It's a really cool app NOAA, it seems to be like a god who observe the world from divine realm.

Thank you for suggestion, i will keep in mind even if i prefer phones with minimalistic feature: only talking XD XD
I am more minimalistic than you XD so i am happy with a cellphone that helps me to stay in contact with my mother in case of emergency and friends of business-related stuff.

Just curious: are you disturbe via cellphone by call centers?
I am disturbed by them with my phone and i don't like it, too bad Italian law sucks with that and allows companies to call people with their call centers in order to seel their stuff but i know these are all scam.

I don't follow trends and i don't care about having an outdated version of a tool. For example i am happy with my Windows 7 even if i miss my Windows XP.

You are welcome :)

Thanks. I will review the apps soon. I think you will like those.
Great glad you liked the Jurassic Park techno song. It's my fave version of the song.

Yeah it's too bad it's not for the whole world. HA I wonder if that's why I like these apps. They give me that god feeling. I never thought of it that way but I am power hungry so it makes sense. As for radar apps I'm sure there are others for other parts of the world that work too. I would have been happy with one of those flip phones but the companies that provide them are terrible so they did not work for me and I just decided to go to the other extreme and got one of the best phones at the time.

Oh yes there are scam and spam calls here. It's very annoying but there's less of it on cell phones. My land line rings all the time and I don't give out that number. I hate them. And they are robots so no point picking up and yelling at them either.

I don't follow trends or styles either. You know I hate that stuff especially with not being able to sell my "out of style" furniture that I still have. I'm on Windows XP still. I refuse to upgrade. I hate windows 10. Chris's laptop has that.
