Printed Photos Are In Vogue

Life is so mysterious. We work like crazy to advance ourselves to the digital world only to desire what we had before. Introducing the KiiPix Smartphone Picture Printer.

I am definitely going to buy one, or maybe, two or three. At $39.99, it makes the perfect gift, especially for children who rarely see printed photos.

All you have to do is place your phone on top of the KiiPix and push a button. Before you do that, you can adjust photos with a filter contrast option, or add all kinds of funny trimmings. After you achieve the photo that you want, you press the button for the print option. It rolls right out. It couldn’t be easier.

Buy the KiiPix on Amazon. For more information, click below.

Next Up For Cataract Surgery

I documented Eliot’s visit to the surgeon at Bascom Palmer in Miami who will perform his cataract procedure in January. I did my two eyes in July. We live in the age of modern miracle medicine. Thank goodness.

GM Is Getting Into E-Bike Biz

General Motors is getting very serious about helping city dwellers, get from point A to point B, without typical major transportation or problems.

The American car manufacturer is actually going to introduce two electric bikes early next year.

One bicycle will be a compact, the other will fold. No details on features and pricing. This is just a heads up.

While GM engineers are designing the bicycles, the company still doesn’t have a brand name.

Give Your Neck A Good Stretch

Before I start my little story, let me remind you not to use the Air Cervical Soft Neck Brace Device without consulting your doctor first.

I love these type of gadgets because my neck always feels tight, especially when I’m under a lot of pressure. My neck has always been where all of my tension seems to settle. For the last 40 years, I have slept with a round neck pillow that I place between my right shoulder and my right arm. I stretch my arm as far out as it will go so my neck does not crunch up while I am sleeping.

It’s wonderful. A good night sleep usually cures neck pain caused by tension. There are times when I can crack my neck first thing in the morning, and then I can feel everything loosen up. Oh, it feels so good. My Uncle Ruby use to let me use his big metal stretching contraption that would hang from a closet door. It would stretch my neck with different amounts of weights. It was great, but very cumbersome.

Today I spotted the Air Cervical Soft Neck Brace Device being introduced on several tech websites. For $30.00, you have a handy gadget that aligns your neck and spine.

Read the benefits here or below.

Again, consult your doctor.

A Crowd Pleaser

We have been walking close to 10,000 steps everyday. My clothes started to feel loose until the Egyptian Zalabia Balls were served onboard our four day river cruise on the Nile. Perfect for the upcoming holidays.

The following is a Steve Greenberg production. He photographed and taped this entire segment.

We Are Cruising The Nile River

This was our form of transportation through the towns of Kom Ombo and Edfu when we visited several ancient temples. We are currently on a Riverboat on the Nile River. The whole experience is completely enchanting because everyone has been accommodating and eager to welcome people from all over the world. This trip has been anything but a vacation. It’s a complete adventure with ballooning (not me), sailing, hiking, belly dancing, and sights we have never seen before.

Temples of Ramses II

It’s so surreal to see millennia-old monuments right in front of me. I have seen them for decades in movies. I can’t believe I can actually take a selfie with all of them. What an honor.

We actually visited the temples of Ramses II and his favorite wife, Neferati.The structures are so big and beautiful you just can’t imagine how they ever got built.

We took hundreds of photos to document our visit. We are currently on a Nile cruise ship for three nights going from from Upper Egypt to Lower Egypt. Everyone is lovely and extremely friendly. I hope it lasts.

Climbing the Cheops Pyramid

I must have been out of my mind. How does someone go from being a couch potato, to a mountain climber? I have no idea, but I did it. Our tour leader told us you can’t visit the Pyramids without climbing to the top inside rooms.

I thought it wouldn’t be too bad. Wrong! It turned out to be steep, slippery ancient steps in a dark sauna. I was scared to death but big boobs help soften the blow. Without Eliot and Steve holding me on either side (the boobs), I wouldn’t have made it.

Photos by Steve.

If that was not tough enough, riding a camel on rocks, in the dessert, really made by heart beat more than three times as fast as it normally does. I’m glad I did it, and I’m glad it’s over.


Once in Morocco, and now in Egypt. Heart beat to 189. Only for a DigiDame post

Amazon’s Alexa Helps Women Check Their Breasts

I just read in the New York Post that most women still do not know how to check their breasts for abnormalities.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a charity called Breast Cancer Care, has teamed up with Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa, to help women with life-saving information.

It’s very simple to use. Just search for “Breast Cancer Care” in the skills part of the Alexa app or Amazon website. Follow the instructions.

One in three women still fail to regularly check their breasts. Many say it is because they don’t know how to do it.

These are some of the signs Alexa will help you with:

1. Change in breast size or shape

2. Redness or a rash

3. Nipple discharge

4. Swelling in the armpit or around the collarbone

5. Change in skin texture

6. An inverted nipple

7. Constant pain

Breast Cancer Care reminds you “If anything about your breasts changes, it’s always worth getting checked over by your doctor.”

Christine Lahti Gives A Tony Award Winning Performance

This is one of the most important and riveting plays ever produced. Eliot and I (HWH PR) will buy a ticket for any woman who voted for Trump, or simply can not afford one on their own. Women need to stop worrying about if their shoes match their purse, and start focusing on how this administration wants to set us back to the Donna Reed era.

This is a special message to some of my ex girl friends who are not for gun control—understand that most multiple killings with guns are done by white men who need to regain what they feel is a loss of control over their lives. Go see Gloria. You owe it to the future women of America.
