Didn't like how your year truned out on Facebook? Change it!

 

If you have a Facebook account, you probably already know that Facebook has published a year end review of the highlights of your Facebook feed.

Unfortunately for some, this year symbolized a year of loss. Some may not want to keep that moment in their summary.

Good news! You can change your year in Facebook before you choose to publish it.

Using the Facebook app on my mobile phone, I had changed the Title, Caption and Pictures (up to 4) in my summary.  Facebook also categories moments by calendar  quarters. You can also delete the quarter if you choose to.

This functionality is only available to Facebook profiles and public figures.

Did you manage to change your Facebook year end summary before making it visible? Tell me in the comments.

Fly on a leaf

Summer is winding down. If you have been indoors and you have pets, this means that flies have more than likely made a visit.

It can be hard to find a non-toxic way to get rid of flies without harming your pets. Here is one method I’ve discovered by accident than can prove to be useful.

Use a used pet food can to get rid of flies in a non-toxic way.

Here are the steps I used.

  1. After feeding your pet(s), scrape out the wet food can
  2. Fill the can with some cool water about halfway
  3. Leave in an area where the files are for 24 hours
  4. After you come back from the day, flies may appear in the can
  5. Empty out water and dispose of the flies.

As the human of two cats, I can state that the method does work. More than a handful of flies have been caught in my space.

There are many factors than can contribute. Temperature, weather and humidity are some. Results may vary.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here it is,  the weekend.

You do some light reading and them it hits you.

“I really need to take care of this or that.”

If this or that is streamlining your online accounts, then the weekend is the ideal time.

There’s that new email account that you moved to, but you haven’t changed your email settings in your other accounts.

There’s establishing that Pinterest or Instragram account you’ve been meaning to do, but haven’t yet.

What about backing up your website (shameless plug.) after all you never know after it’s too late.

No matter what you do this weekend, choose one thing that will help you in taking a step forward.

Staples Arc vs Levenger Circa

Notebooks are one of my favorite things. I rotate notebooks like I rotate seasons. This is why I thought it would be a good idea to write my thoughts on the Staples Arc vs Levenger Circa.

One notebook system that I have been using is the Staples Arc Notebook System.

As of this writing, I’ve been using it for about 4 years.

Before the Arc, I was using the Levenger Circa. I was first introduced to it during a business trip.

I like being able to rearrange sheets, dividers, and folder. I also like being able to change a notebook cover on a whim.

There are fairly compatible. I’ve been known to mix and match.

Why did I switch from the Levenger Circa to the Staples Arc?

Access.

Staples is nearer to me than the Levenger Store (there are none in my state.) The pricing doesn’t hurt either.

Also, my favorite Levenger sales person who I used to call retired.
