Your initial post was deleted so let’s try this one, ah deleted by a name change.

 

Did a search for software that creates or generates bingo cards, these are the results.

 

Perhaps bingobaker dot com, will help you, fair warning read the fine print some are free, some might require a $29.95 cost if you need more than a certain number of cards.

 

You also could ask in apple community if you use iPhones,iPads or Mac’s it will require you to log in .There was a discussion there which also used similar search terms and gave similar answers.

Know enough to be dangerous on all operating systems and computer platforms. iPad, iPhone  and Mac os’es to a point, the different versions tend to make my eyes glaze over and my brain wants to sleep. But, as long as the updates flow quickly I’m fine.

 

Once per month updates, not anymore it really helps to check the update site with more frequency. Apple  has already been hacked, with its very own virus. How PC like 🤣

 

Passcodes stolen, bit coins, individual passwords on different websites, etc..

 

Subscribe to something like Sophos and 

You’ll learn of new updates , you just might not learn why this new update has happened. Apple tends to be really tight lipped about hacks, viruses and worms.

 

My biggest gripe about Apple products vs PC’s, I check updates 1-2 x per week or whenever I get a warning in my SMS, or emails. Since 1968 means I’ve been doing this way too long , one of the reasons why I retired.

It’s happy time for macOS and iOS users a first time that I recall 0-day patch for iPhone, pad or Mac computer users.

 

https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2023/05/01/apple-delivers-first-ever-rapid-security-response-cybera... 

 

If you can’t update thru normal means there is a link in article, I applied to my newish iPhone 13 and iOS updated to 16.4.1 to 16.4.1(a).

Friends MacOS  Ventura took the update as well.

@catwoman500 and @Anonymous , you might seriously want to think about updating/upgrading your phones, if for nothing else than to make sure your phones and data stay secure. @Anonymous , not sure how it works anymore (I use Straight Talk, no contract, BYOP) but if your daughter has you on her account, than you're probably entitled to a new phone anyway, since she's paying for it regardless.  Price of a phone is usually incorporated into the monthly bill whether you have a new phone or not, so they recommend upgrading your phone every two years.

 

Yep @catwoman500 , I guess we're both seeing some pretty miserable weather today. 🌧☹️

 

@LaDolceVita , glad I didn't have coffee in hand when I read about your perm. 🤣 That would have been messy. 🫠

@DaveMcK , I trim my own hair, not much as I like it long. Lol, gone are my days for the CUTE hair cuts, still cute but you know what I mean = salt and pepper! 😂🤣

 

@catwoman500 lol, oh yes, LAST month was my LAST month to be able to use my BANK app on the android my daughter bought me in 2018. And of course the famous Samsung UPDATES stopped about a year ago. Thankful my CVS app still works to order my 2 prescriptions for blood pressure and chlolestral. And GOOGLE UPDATES too. So to the BANK WEBSITE I go! 🙄

 

She had offered to upgrade my phone but lol, I finally figured how to use it, had fought her against replacing my Flip Phone I had - prepaid.

 

But I know I will have to BEFORE it dies on me. 😭

 

GRATEFUL she added me to her T-Mobile account in 2018 and pays for everything. 🤗🤎

 

@MsStretch , @Frozenoem - hope you are okay!

I live have been booking Doctors, seeking answers- maturity is an expletive waiting to happen. Before I forget if there’s an election vote.

 

OK now back to programming.

 

Brief setback on road to happiness or hiking, more PT so I can return to upright when I fall over. Just crawled in from garage, I just found my old RR mailbox to replace the new one which DOT destroyed.

 

Also located the missing RX it was 300 feet away and up an 100’ pine tree. If it blows down fine, otherwise it can stay there, my insurances covered it😎. Neighbors and there kids have been warned.

 

Who was asking for lighthouses pictures, I found an old one on one of my hard drives for Maine with clippers (masted ships) in foreground , course it was on ocean so maybe fore ocean is more correct. I’ll post later?


Time to play it’s 60* finally, the overnight temps will eventually warm to above 30* need to get more firewood. Much easier doing PT when warm.👍

 

Think that covers all bases yeah the thought of changing Doc’s , etc to move scares the heck out of most everyone , including me.

 

Nicole I think T-mobile is offering free upgrades on phones at least here. It might be worth a try. Go to the light, get an iPhone they’re easy to use. Stretch made the switch.As did LaDolce😎

 

Final keep getting kicked off boards, Everytime I tried to reply by anyone’s name. Updating my routers now.

Good morning to everyone out there on this last Week of April 2023

Got my hair cut. My Dinning commity meeting on Monday ran longer as the Vice-president of Culinary had a lot forthcoming changes to advise us about.

We should have a new menu by late May. Several high schools and colleges students will return to help out in the dining room over Summer. 

Had to take the car in to have the tires rotate. Several trips to the drug store or grocery store.

Also had several posts on  other topics here.

Hey there, Porch Peeps,

Not much going on here in the Philly burbs. Expecting a rainy, messy weekend.

Got my errands done this morning before the rain starts.

Yesterday was lunch at Chickie and Pete's. Haven't been in years and forgot how loud the music is. My question is that if it's a sports bar and the games are on about a million TV's all over the place, how in the world can the sports fan hear the commentary with all that loud music? There was a Phillies game on, but I had no clue what was happening because I was paying more attention to the conversation at my table but would have like to hear the commentary especially if there was a good play happening. Must be the "I'm getting too old" for this type of place. 😒

 

@LaDolceVita ...I actually snorted when I read your description of your perm. I have had to switch hairdressers recently and have ended up looking like I almost got a man's haircut. Two weeks have passed, and the back is still almost too short for the curling iron. I make do, but Yikes! 🙀

 

@DaveMcK ...Thinking of you and your coffee as I picked up my Starbucks on my way home after errands today. My phone is so old that my Starbucks app won't work and won't update so I have to go on the internet to access my account so they can get to the barcode at the drive thru. Nothing is as easy as it should be. Old age is not for sissies as they say.

 

You all take care!

@Anonymous , yes, my mission in life is to be the potty escort for the kids 🐈🐈💩, particularly the matriarch, Willie Mae.  Always got her back. 😺👍

 

I HATE driving.  I have for a long time now, and only do it when absolutely necessary.  I have a dashcam and the absolute rudeness and flaunting of traffic laws is scary to watch, much less experience. 😱

Hello folks of the porch!  I have been busy, still trying to get settled.  Have to set up new relationships with doctors, dentists and people who do hair.  I got a perm 2 weeks ago and I look like I escaped from an asylum.  Doing better with doctor and dentist though, medical care better out here.

 

Mom's dog Maggie developed pneumonia, the vet was excellent if expensive.  And my gosh, the waiting time!    Anyway Maggie is fine after 6 weeks of antibiotics and is now on allergy meds.

 

Enjoying my favorite kind of weather, high 60s.  I do love living here, except for the driving.  Lots of hills and curves, yikes.

Definitely had our taxes done by an accountant at an accounting firm! For me it is worth it at twice the price. 

I am getting a refund from both the State and Federal Government.

Seems like almost Spring , mud season is approaching in my bit of Paradise. Bear warnings are up, and temp may hit 70 in parts of state. I’ll believe everything when the snow piles melt in front and back yard. My FedEx snowbank stands at 4’Hx12’Lx8’ Wide. Grass who knows a little more appears each week😎

 

I’ll be taking the chill off for awhile more - 30’s at night call for it, as does my back - firewood.👍

 

Everyone else I think I’ll play in garage later need to tune up mower, saws and other implements.Enjoy whatever season you’re in.

We seem to have our bases covered and waiting for our replacement charge cards. The bank was able to give us a new debit card on our first visit. On a second visit Mary was able to apply for a personal charge card. 

They do not have any more joint charge accounts we were told.

I hope everyone has changed their passwords on any accounts that requires one.

Be sure to visit your bank and/or credit union and have them review your account.to be sure it is up to date and secured. 

These times are very difficult and challenging so be careful and alert of the world around you.

It has been a very crazy 3 days! Our credit card were hacked so we decided to update our password on all of our our accounts. We also ordered replacement debit and credit cards.

I highly recommend that you all do this now and periodically.

Found it forgot what I was testing, a new browser and email program, that’s slow to update in real time.

 

On that note time to feed the fire, one more day to heat and hot water. Might even fill the wood box.🤔

@Frozenoem , much rather stub a toe than step in a big pile of 🐻💩. 😝 Speaking of...

bears should be becoming more active around here, but haven't seen any black bears yet.  Snake, yes.  Ticks, definitely a big yes.  But no bears.

 

Ack, and speaking of taxes, guess I better get on the ball.

My worries at this time of year and in town or up the road are the first feral’s bobcat and/or lynx. Grateful for telephoto on iPhone.

 

IMG_3711.jpeg

They were on their way to a brunch in Upton, ME.

I didn’t have my snowshoes on , and had no particular desire to see what they were eating. Best guess deer, definitely would have a bleep on that picture.

 

Watch out for bears if you’re above freezing, they are coming out of hibernation.

I’m warm and never, ever interrupt feeding ferals, of the big cat variety.

@Anonymous , no, not on any expeditions today, but just ran out to take the kids for a pee break.  Willie Mae likes someone to watch her back while she takes care of business since Armani tends to stalk her.  Jeez!  The wind!  And she lollygags, very fastidious about properly digging a crater, than building a mountain on top to hide the evidence. 🙄  Not like the boys who just squat and sling a few paw swipes of dirt over it.

 

Noticed how green the woods looked in the back today.  Almost overnight.  Bushwhacking season is fast coming to a close although we still have time on the higher elevations. So many homesites, so little time.

 

Last week we went to explore the remains of a Marine Camp in Shenandoah NP.  They were stationed there when President Hoover built his getaway.  Here are some archival photos.  Of course, the tents are long gone, but there are artifacts.  However, Mother Nature has definitely reclaimed the area, so we followed an overgrown road trace to find the location.  Trust me, the area is no longer cleared like the pictures.  Mostly woods now and plenty of pesky greenbriar.  OW!

21* presently, blame squarely on windchill. Had to take a walk, and the only good thing about the weather is you don’t step in animal scat is you can stub your toe on it, freezes solid.
