Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For December 2019

The month of December is already here.  That means 2019 is almost over … and, in a few weeks, it will be 2020.  I will be giving my features a break this month, but I will bring them back in both the new year and the new decade.  Today, I will tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in December.

One blog post will be entitled “I still have my Nike Air jacket one year later!”  I will talk about my black and white Nike Air jacket … and I will tell you why I still like it one year later.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I am still stylish in my Christmas sweater one year later!”  I will talk about my red Boston Terrier sweater, which I have owned for almost one year now.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph needs some false teeth!”  This past Tuesday, I got two of my upper teeth removed … and I may need some false teeth in the future.  They would go on my upper teeth.  Maybe I can get either flexible partial dentures or dental implants.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my Motorola smartphone for two years!”  I will talk about my phone in the blog posts.

Another one of my posts will be entitled ” I have had a cardigan sweater for two years!”  I will talk about my grey cardigan sweater, which I bought at the now-closed Sears store at South Hills Village, nearly two years ago.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket for four years now!”  I will talk about my favorite jacket, which I have owned for nearly four years now.  It would turn me into “Mr. Classy” just days after I bought it at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx in December of 2015.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I am still a ‘Macho Man’ two years later!”  I will talk about my purple Macho Man shirt, which I have owned for nearly two years.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph Recovers From His Oral Surgery.”  I will talk about the day that I recovered from my most recent oral surgery.  I recovered from it for a few hours this past Tuesday.  It was a quick recovery, to say the least.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Happy birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!”  I will wish my friend, Nicholas Ciesielski, a happy 34th birthday in a blog post on December 8th.

I will also give you a two-part blog post entitled “Joseph’s Top Blog Posts Of 2019” in December.  In it, I will give you the top blog posts of the year.

If everything goes well, I will write a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-in’ now have extra class!”  I was supposed to write the blog post in November, but “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were not able to have extra class then.  Hopefully, that will change this month.

I hope you will like the blog posts that I’ll be giving you as we wrap up both a great year and a fantastic decade.  Hopefully at least one of these blog posts will catch your eye.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s West Virginia Public Broadcasting App

Last month, I talked about my 90.5 WESA app in one of my features, which is called “Joseph’s Moment Of Peace.”  Well, today, I’m using this feature again as I talk about another one of my public radio apps, which is on my smartphone.  This would be my West Virginia Public Broadcasting App.  Now, WVPB is affiliated with both PBS and NPR.  On the TV side, it owns some PBS stations … and, on the radio side, it owns some NPR stations.  Years ago, I listened to one of WVPB’s stations in the car.  The station is in Wheeling … and you can hear it on 89.9 on the FM dial.  I live in southwestern Allegheny County … and the station is quite listenable there.

Well, anyway, I have the West Virginia Public Broadcasting app on my smartphone … and it relaxes me in a big way, especially whenever I listen to classical music on it.  They play classical music on there during the day … and, of course, like 90.5 WESA, they airs lots of NPR’s programs at various other times.  Now, on Saturday nights, they air a show called “Mountain Stage,” which is produced by WVPB.  I don’t listen to the show myself, but I think it sounds pretty good.  I like the sleep timer feature that’s on the app.  It counts it down in hours, minutes and seconds.  The sleep timer feature is also on the 90.5 WESA app.  I like the WVPB app … and I will continue to use it whenever I can.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s 90.5 WESA App

Now, over the years, I have listened to several fantastic radio stations in Pittsburgh … and, at one point, whenever I was a student in school, I would listen to at least one of the three public radio stations in our city.  When I was young, I would listen to either WQED-FM, which is at 89.3, or WDUQ, which was at 90.5, regularly.  I would sometimes listen to WYEP, which is at 91.3, but I never really got into it.  WQED-FM plays classical music, WDUQ, which is now WESA, airs programs from NPR and WYEP plays Adult Alternative music.

Whenever I listened to 90.5 years ago, their call letters were WDUQ … and they had their studios on the campus of Duquesne University for many years.  These days, their call letters are WESA … and their studios are on Pittsburgh’s South Side.  That brings me to the topic of today’s blog post, which is about my 90.5 WESA app.  For some reason, I started listening to public radio regularly again, after taking a break from doing so for a few years.

90.5 WESA is one of Pittsburgh’s three NPR stations … and I usually listen to it on my app, which is on my smartphone … and it relaxes me in a big way.  I listen to it out of boredom, but, sometimes, I’ll listen to it if I want to be informed.  The station has some fantastic programs and some fantastic disc jockeys on there … and they also do hourly newscasts from NPR at one minute after nearly every hour.  They also air “BBC World Service” in the overnight hours … and I’ll listen to it on my app whenever I want to fall asleep in the middle of the night.

If you need a way to relax like me, you can download the 90.5 WESA app on your smartphone … and you can use it whenever you want to relax.

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.

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

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.
