Prodding and Prompting: Medication Reminders

I am sure I’ve written about medication reminders before, or have I? Only kidding! I pretty sure I haven’t written about medication reminders specifically. Have I?

Testing 1 - 2 - 3

Testing 1 - 2 - 3

So, I sat down this morning to write my next blog post, which was going to be about ergonomics. I chose ergonomics as a topic as I was uncomfortable in the position I was sitting at my laptop. (It’s all about me …) Anyway, then I remembered that Windows has a built-in voice recognition program! If I were to use voice recognition, I could sit back comfortably and simply dictate my blog post, not worrying about my ergonomics for a few minutes.

Whether or not artistic talents are running through your veins like for my daughter and sister, and well, millions of others, pencils and pens are so ubiquitous most of us don’t think about them. That is, until you need one and they have all disappeared from the face of the planet, right?
