A Simple iOS Calculator app tip

I found out about this the other day and wanted to share this incase anyone else didn’t know about this. So far I know it works only with the Calculator app on the iPhone. It might work on the iPad, but I have yet to test this out. Anyhow….in Calculator app Swipe left on the number display to delete the last number entered.

Simple Red Wine Vinaigrette

As spring time approaches… I love making salads. Instead of store bought dressings I love to make my own.

The one I use the most often is a Simple Red Wine Vinaigrette, that is only three indigents. Red Wine Vinegar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and fresh ground pepper.





1/2 cup of Red Wine Vinegar

1/2 cup of  Extra Virgin Olive oil

1 tablespoon of Freshly Ground Pepper ( Or to your taste)


Put ingredients  into a bottle( I use a small  8.5 fl ounce olive oil bottle, which makes a full bottle) close the lid and shake for a few seconds to make sure everything is mixed together.






When I’m 64

My mother never liked to talk about her age, but I can’t help thinking about her today. A year before her death in 2007 we talked about and watched the stories about Paul McCartney turning 64. We got on the subject about the song that was playing in the background of the news stories, the one he wrote and recorded with the Beatles for his father titled  “When I’m Sixty-Four”. I joked that when she turned 64 I would play that song for her on her birthday. Today if my mother was still alive, she would have been turning 64. So here to my mother and anyone else who is turning 64 today. I wish everyone a very happy birthday and to share this song with you.
