Last Friday, I used Garnier Olia Darkest Brown Hair dye to get rid of my gray.
I am naturally a mid-to dark brown, so I was very surprised to see how dark my hair turned out. I am trying to get used to it, however think changing my makeup to brown shadows, off black pencils and red lipsticks will make a difference.
That said, I am very impressed with how well this product covered my gray.
Other things I have been up to?
- Tennis: French Open started today.
- Movie: Mission Impossible III
- Movie: The Ledge with Terrence Howard, Liv Tyler
- Thinking about why my next tablet will have at least one USB port. Screen grabs from last post were emailed from my tablet. Because of ongoing legal issues, I do not use the Cloud.
The last bullet [above]: iPad and several others [i.e., Samsung], have built in USB ports. I use my tablet for everything, including watching online streaming programs [Verizon FiOS, WatchESPN, TennisEverywhere]. I also keep my tablet plugged in when I am at home, to save battery life. I need the separate USB port to print, port images and data to other devices while using the micro USB port for power. I use a Bluetooth keyboard with my tablet, however I never enabled Bluetooth on my Macbook-- because of security issues. [I keep a lot of QiSoftware proprietary data and code on my Macbook.] This makes it hard to port data. I do not keep company proprietary data on my netbook nor other systems, however none of the others have the Bluetooth option. A wireless printer would solve part of the problem-- however I cannot justify another printer at this time. What are you using?

These days, wish I could say I have been doing more. Mostly, watching tennis and a little gardening.
Clay court season is on-- in preparation for Roland-Garros [the French Open] with matches from the main draws beginning this Sunday, May 24, 2015.
Other things I have been up to?
I love how my Irises look this year and the Peonies I thought vandals destroyed are back.. I am so pleased.
News from Washington? There is news, however providing details may be counterproductive.

I ordered my mom's Mother's Day Gift about three weeks ago and gave it to her this morning. She said she loved it so I hung them while she was out.
You will note, the gift is also listed in my Amazon Store. I was not at all disappointed with this item.
I think my mother is having a full day. She left early this morning for breakfast with Andre and Cathy [earpiece saying this is false, so I am not sure]. Earpiece also saying a number of relatives are in town, but I am not sure about this either. I think she felt guilty about leaving me all day. She put ribs in a slow cooker, before leaving.
Around noon she returned bringing store bought potato salad and rolls to complete my meal. I applied BBQ Sauce and put the ribs in the oven. She will have left overs tomorrow.
My meal was great. She is having dinner with my sister and her boyfriend I am told.
The Madrid Open Final is on. I have been watching this tournament most of the week.
Do I miss seeing my family? Security has become a big deal for me. I go out only when I need too. So, no. I see Judy and Andre when they come over. No one from out of town ever comes to this house now.... however, this has been the case since the late 90s. If this ever ends.. will this change? No. I have learned too much since February 2012-- so no, I probably will never see family in a large gathering again. That said... I love quiet, working and tennis so this really is not a problem for me.
Issues with the earpiece? Hard. Hoping judges, DOJ/FBI, ACLU will be doing more to correct this horrific issue.
