It’s been a while since I wrote something on this blog and it is taking some time to get used to the changes with WordPress and Divi, so it will take me longer than I thought.
Something happened today that inspired me to write a new post. Well, it was a number of things. I forgot to turn the watering off last night, so 6 hours later when I remembered, the backyard was pretty wet. Yeah, yeah, I know, I was supposed to set the alarm on the phone to remind me, but I didn’t have the phone with me. By the time I got inside, I had forgotten about setting the alarm.
That was yesterday. Today, my lady had a form to fill in and asked me to print it out. The printer threw in the towel a year ago and I promised myself I wasn’t going to buy another one. I reasoned that I couldn’t save the world personally, but I could help a little bit by not printing to paper and being an office paper-less person.
The reply to printer not working was “Buy a new one”. Now I had a dilemma, look after my lady with as much effort as she does for me or do it another way. So I accessed her email, looked at the form (a pdf with no ability to edit), and then searched for a PDF to word app. There were many to chose from. In fact, thinking now, I believe I could have uploaded to google docs and they can convert.
I converted the form and then added the info and a little message at the bottom.
Save the planet – become a paperless workplace
So, I am not going to save the planet, but someone might read this and think of a way to help or actually nut out a solution.
Talking about saving the planet. here’s a guy that is doing his best to make us more aware of what is happening in Australia to harm the planet.
Well, I did it now. I got the form filled in for the course my lady(an RN) wanted to do, titled Acute Rhythms, Respiratory & Renal. Probably a good course to take with Covid about. I also sent it to the course provider. Plus I wrote this blog post. And it is only midday. I am going to do this more often. Do it Now.
PS. You know, I didn’t want to go through finding an app and converting the pdf, but I had to think of how I would feel when I actually had finished. Now that I have finished, I feel like James Brown.
