Joseph Has A New Smartphone!

During the second half of my blog’s fourth year, I will give you some chances to revisit my past blog posts … and, throughout June, I will give you chances to revisit blog posts from my blog’s fourth year. Today, I will let you revisit a post from December of 2017 and it is entitled “Joseph Has A New Smartphone!”

In late December 2017, my old LG smartphone froze up after I turned my computer off for the evening. Whenever I went into my “computer room” to pick up the phone, I saw a red Verizon screen … and it would not show anything else after that. I restarted it as often as I could, but no matter what happened, the red Verizon screen would stay on my phone for the longest time. The next morning, whenever my LG phone “died” over just over three years, I was prompted to buy my Motorola smartphone at the Verizon store in Great Southern Shopping Center. I like the Motorola smartphone … and I use it every single day. I will miss my LG smartphone a lot. It served me well for three years, two months and 14 days.

I will be giving my computer a break from 7:00 this evening until 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 16th … and I will be giving you three interesting blog posts next week.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around June 7th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

For just over three years, I have owned a smartphone from LG.  I really liked this phone a lot, but, sadly, my phone’s short life came to an end today.  Its demise actually started last evening just moments after I turned off my computer.  It would freeze up many times, no matter how many times I tried to get it to stop freezing up.  I had experienced every emotion in the book at that time.  I was in denial then … and I was both sad and angry at the same time.

Now, this morning, after I tried to unfreeze it many times, I was able to buy a new smartphone, after the phone would stay frozen for hours at a time.  I was able to buy a phone from Motorola … and, so far, I really like it a lot.  It’s slightly smaller than my LG smartphone is.

I’m…

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s Relax And Sleep App

Today, I would like to talk about an app that I use on my smartphone on a daily basis … and it’s called the “Relax And Sleep” app.  There are all kinds of soothing sounds on the app … and you can use it for a certain amount of time.  In fact, you can have one or multiple timers on it; however, you can use just one timer at a time.

I love this app a lot … and, if you like it a lot, you can download the app for free.  It’s in the Google Play store … and you can find it in your app store, if you don’t use the Google Play store.  The app relaxes me in a big way … and I use it several times a day.  I also use it for one hour and 23 minutes every night as I prepare to go to sleep.  I urge all of you guys to download the “Relax And Sleep” app someday.  It has a little lamb on the app.  It will relax you guys in a big way.

I now have a smartphone of my very own!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts.

In October of 2014, I wrote a blog post entitled “I now have a smartphone of my very own!” When I first got that smartphone back in the Fall of 2014, the smartphone was from LG … and I wasn’t able to use the Internet on it too much because we didn’t have Wi-Fi in our house. In early 2015, we got Wi-Fi in our house … and I would be able to use the Internet on my phone more often than I did before.

Sadly, in December of 2017, I had to say good-bye to my LG smartphone after more than 3 years … and I got my current smartphone the next day. That smartphone is from Motorola.

I like my smartphones a lot and I will be using them as often as possible in the future.

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

It’s official!  I am now the proud owner of my very own smartphone.  I received the smartphone earlier this week.  I really like it a lot.  I’m still learning how to use it properly, though, but I’m starting to get the hang of it.  I can also use the Internet on there, but I do have some rules when it comes to using the Internet on my smartphone.  I will permit myself to spend nearly one hour per day using the Internet on my smartphone … and I will only be allowed to call relatives, send text messages to my friends and relatives and take pictures and make short videos with my smartphone.  Don’t worry … I will continue to use my computer regularly.  I spend most of my computer time surfing the Internet anyway.

Have a great day!

I have owned my Motorola smartphone for one year!

For the past year now, I have owned my Motorola smartphone.  It replaced my LG smartphone, which I had owned for just over three years.  I use it every day.  It says, “Hello, Moto,” whenever someone calls me on it.  I usually use the Internet and my apps on the phone … and I text my friends and my relatives on it also.  I don’t like to call people on it, unless I absolutely have to do so.  I like this phone a lot … and I will use it many more times in the next year.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For December 2018

The year 2018 is almost over, if you can believe that.  In just a few weeks, we will start the year 2019.  I will give my features another break in December, but I will bring them back in the new year.  Today, I’d like to tell you about the top blog posts for December 2018.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “We’ve owned our red truck for five years!”  We first purchased our red Chevrolet truck in December of 2013.  It replaced our blue Chevrolet truck, which was at our house from October of 1990 until September of 2013.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my Motorola smartphone for one year!”  I will talk about my phone, which I have owned for almost one year now.  It says “Hello Moto!” sometimes.  It usually does that whenever someone is trying to call me on it.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “2018 is my blog’s best year yet!”  My blog has now been seen more than 1,300 times this year … and the number will rise before the year is over.  It will probably cross the 1400-views mark at some point in December.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Had A Cardigan Sweater For One Year!”  I will tell you about my grey cardigan sweater, which I purchased at Sears almost one year ago.  It is very classy.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Weekends Are Full Of Class!”  I will talk about some classy TV personalities, who generally appear on Pittsburgh’s TV stations on weekends.  Some of them are anchors … and some of them are reporters.  Some of these people may surprise you a little bit.

At around Christmas time, I will write a two-part blog post for you guys.  It will be entitled “Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For 2018.”  I will tell you about the year’s top blog posts in the two-part blog post.

I will write my 1,025th blog post down in December.  It could be about anything.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Good-bye, Sally Wiggin.”  She is retiring from WTAE this week … and I will talk about meeting her at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is located in Downtown Pittsburgh.  I did it in the late 2000s.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Christmas Presents For 2018.”  I will talk about my Christmas presents in the blog post in December … and I will turn a few of my presents into blog posts in January.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”  I will talk about the classy item in a blog post in December.

I hope you will check out my posts on my blog in December.  Thank you for checking out my blog in 2018 … and I hope you will continue to check out my blog in 2019.

Enjoy your day!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around November 29th in previous years …

Remembering Joseph’s LG Smartphone

On Tuesday evening, my old LG smartphone froze up just minutes after I left my computer room for the evening.  It would only show a red Verizon screen whenever I would try to fix it, but sadly, it would not show anything else after that.  When I first noticed it that evening, I experienced every emotion in the book at that time.  I was sad, angry and hopeful at the same time.

The next morning, I tried to stop my LG phone from freezing up, but I was not successful in doing so.  Later that morning, I was able to start saying good-bye to my LG smartphone after three years.  Then, after I purchased my new Motorola smartphone, my LG smartphone “died.”  I still have it here at home … and I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of it anytime soon.

I will miss using this LG smartphone regularly.  I was able to take it almost everywhere with me.  Whenever I would go to Downtown Pittsburgh, I would usually leave it at home.  That way, I would give it a break for a few hours at a time.  Other than that, I almost always took it everywhere with me.

I was able to write some blog posts about it over the past three years or so … and I’d like to show them to you now.

I’m going to show you a photo of my two smartphones.  The phone on the left is my old LG smartphone … and the phone on the right is my new Motorola smartphone.

I would like to dedicate this blog post to my old LG smartphone.  It served me pretty well for three years, two months and 14 days.

I don’t mind dialing our area code!

For as long as I can remember, I would be able to call my friends and my relatives by dialing only seven digits, but these days, we have to dial ten digits in order to call our friends and our relatives … and, yes, that also means that we have to dial the area code, no matter which number we dial.  It might be someone who’s in the 412 area code … or it might be someone who’s in the 724 area code … or it might possibly be someone who’s in the newer 878 area code.

Well, I rarely call people these days because I would just send text messages to my friends and my relatives, but when it comes to dialing their phone numbers, I just have one thing to say … I don’t mind dialing the area code, even if it’s our area code.

As you can see, I’m writing my 724th blog post area code … and, in a way, it’s about area codes … and 724 is one of the area codes here in the Pittsburgh area.

Now, next time, I will write my 725th blog post.  It will be about something that’s very interesting.

My smartphone-free weekend

From Saturday morning until Monday morning, I was unable to use my smartphone.  My smartphone wouldn’t charge up at all during those days.  My black charger was messed up … and that was one of the reasons why my smartphone wasn’t working that day.  The other reason why it wasn’t working this past weekend is that a “prong,” which is located inside of my smartphone, is missing … and I will get a new “prong” for it sometime soon.

Yesterday morning, I got a new white charger … and I’m using it to charge my smartphone.  I have to charge it up in a certain way, though … and hopefully, it will be able to charge up properly for several minutes at a time.  At first, I was unable to do it successfully, but over the past day or so, I’ve gotten better at doing just that.  This charger is strong and fantastic.

Also, I will try to use my smartphone sparingly.  Before that, I would use it almost non-stop all day long.  I was wearing the battery out … and now I will do my best to keep my battery running smoothly for a long time.

I bought my current smartphone back in September of 2014.
