Archive for September, 2014

Only a couple of days left in official summer! Earlier this week, the weather here was cold. I mean COLD for mid-September. On Monday and Tuesday there were residents sitting in the lounge wearing their coats. So management took the hint – a bit later in the week. (Mucking around with a 50-year-old heating system requires time, don’t you know?) So yesterday the heat came on in both buildings (which are joined together on the first floor and basement levels.) Tonight, my suite is a comfortable temp – about 68F. But the common areas on the main floor, where on Monday we were shivering, are now so hot that they are uncomfortable to occupy. The dining room was a sauna tonight. The next 2 days are predicted to be very warm. Of course, most of us had been getting ready to put away our summer clothes. Oops- not quite yet! I will be happy to see the cool weather settle in.

In other news, I have been wrestling with my iPhone, trying to get the new iOS8 installed. Having a hard time. Tonight I have been forced into searching the depths of the phone’s memory, and trashing old files, trying to make room for the new operating system, which requires a lot of GB. So far, no joy. More work and more trashing of files is required. I hate it that I am throwing out all these old files without actually looking at them to see if they should be saved. I just tell myself that if I haven’t looked at them for the last 2 years, then they are not high priority for saving. Out they go!

Speaking of iPhone, the sales of the new phone have gone through the roof. Here in the big city, a few people started standing in line on Monday, to be among the first to own the new phone. Did you see the picture of the lineup in NYC? If I read the news correctly, the lineup stretched out for 10 blocks at opening hour at the Apple store in NYC. I always feel sad that Steve Jobs did not live to see the amazing successes of his best-ever product. Anyone who did not get their hands on a new iPhone today, and had to reserve one for future delivery, will be waiting for it at least until the end of October. I also read that the sales of the new iPhone went through the roof in China, among other places. BTW, I am not a buyer of a new iPhone. I am happy with my current model, which I have had for 3 years, I think. It’s always with me.
