It looks like summer will finally arrive this weekend in Vermont. We’ve been cheated out of summer with constant rain and cool temperatures but the forecast for this weekend is more like it—with sunny skies and temps in the 80s and 90s. Which of the 4,000 summer things that we have not been able to do will we do this weekend? My garden is almost a complete failure due to lack of sun and too much water. It is the worst vegetable garden in my 40 years in Vermont! The only things that are doing well are the berries, and this year (for some reason), my Arctic Kiwis are full of fruit.
One of the great values from Apple that is frequently overlooked is MobileMe. It is a power-packed offering from Apple that is very reasonable in price for all of the benefits that it provides. While we all have email accounts, I believe that the MobileMe account is one of the most versatile. I use my xxx@.me account for all of my non-Small Dog Electronics stuff. I can get my mail anyplace that there is a computer available or cell-phone signal to download it on my iPhone. If I am buying something from a vendor I may not trust yet, MobileMe also gives you the ability to create up to five “aliases” for these purposes. See below for a few of my other favorite things about MobileMe.
We are gearing up for next week’s Tax-Free Day on Saturday, August 22nd. It is promising to be a huge event. Just a reminder that we do not charge tax on any order that ships outside of Vermont—365 days a year!
