Wimbledon has been on since the week before last Monday [yesterday], and I have done little else. Local family members made the annual trek to Wilmington, NC for the 4th of July and I stayed home.
The Women's Quarterfinals are on today-- so most of my morning/early afternoon has been/will be spent watching those matches.
That said, today I did take time to have a great lunch-- shown in one of the photos below. Also shown, I have taken time out for many great meals.
Other things I have been up to:
- Updating my Amazon Stores, specifically Home Furnishings, Computers and Home Office, Gift Ideas, and the "Let Me Know" category. A new product, Amazon Echo has also caught my attention. If you get the chance- review the product video.
- Watching: HBO's True Detective, Season 2 Series
- Watching: STARZ, Power Series
- Researching Java Applet issues as related to web browsers and tablets. Reminder the Blogger Calendar utilizes a Java Applet front-end and Java Servlet on the server-side.
- Researching watch repair kits.
My Conair Curling Iron [page 2- lower left], stopped working [had it for over 10 years, and now used daily since Feb. 2015]- so I ordered 2 more, along with a new watch. Next, I am going to get an assortment of watch batteries and a device to remove watch cases so I can put in new batteries. I used to have the watch repair shop in the Crystal City Underground do all of this. Now I just buy new watches.
Another of my great lunches...
All sorts of news, though nothing to report here..
