Intervals? New to me. // hat tip +Ken Smith 
It was in grade school classes that most of us first learned about the syllable—the tiny unit of organization for speech sounds, bundles of which can be combined to construct words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, mystery novels, biology textbooks, national constitutions, etc.

Article gave a really good example too -- do we really say 'en–gin–eer' or 'eng–in–eer'?

I must declutter and organize my life better. Will I get to the minimalist state? Unlikely. But this is an interesting read.
The junk in our homes can clutter our minds as well. It’s time for a serious spring clean

I love clutter--it feels like being surrounded by inspirations.  Trash and crap and pointless projects, though: I could probably do with fewer of those.  It did feel great to get rid of pointless old computers, although I did keep one.

I have been looking for the tutorial I used and finally found it.  I use google voice on my tablet to make calls (it works best with a headset).  I think there is a setting that gives the caller id.  It might be your google voice number though.

Urgent Questions  - 
Anything I should be careful about when buying headset for Chromebook? Use case: Chrome Remote Desktop sessions with my Mom who has trouble with the phone. Will a $20 Logitech headset be OK or a mistake?

My Logitech M510 wireless mouse arrived yesterday from Amazon. Plugged in ths small USB wireless dongle. Restarted Acer CB5-571 Chromebook (16.6 in 1080p display, 4 GB RAM 32 GB SSD) abnd yes, it works flawless;y. I bought it for my 98 year old step mom who I visit this week withe her new Chromebook (hers has 768 resolution screen). She is not used to a touchpad, (yet?) so this is in the "no excuses" category. LOL

No more BS calls "I am from Microsoft and I will help you with your Windows" crap. The most recent incident made her Lenovo lappie unusable. Somebody explain why MSFT can't shut those @ssholes down? I get those calls all the time. Yesterday I said "OH, thank you for calling! But I don't own a Windows machine, I switched to Macs." (a Lie, sue me, LOL). He said no problem, I will transfer you to our Mac Support. At which point I treated him to some really foul language.

Interesting and fun. It begs the question as to how the mind reader's team learned name of the individuals.

I can use several of these when they're available. //Hope project attracts both money and a solid team. 
There are already quite a few smart Wi-Fi electric sockets like Kankun KK-SP3, Broadlink SP2, or Orvibo Vivo S20 among others that cost between $20 and $45 shipped. They can all be controlled via an Android or iOS app either via the touch of a button, or by setting schedules, and some can also ...
