HEY! Not new at all to RW - been here since Beta days (7 + years give or take) I recommend RW to everyone. Just changed my name (divorce, PHEW! finally!!!) so here goes , a bit about me:
What region are you from?
San Fran North Bay Area (Santa Rosa) CA, Why does that sound familiar? Yup, smack in the midst of the firestorms in Oct '17. Made it OK (phew!) but my community is still healing (sigh) but we’ll be all right.
What do you do for a living, and in your spare time?
Retired on disability - fibromyalgia - so not “working”. Walk, hike, read, music, party and so on.
What are your top skills or areas of expertise?
You name it, I’ve done it: chef (heres a Red Velvet Cake just made for a friends b’day) , computer programming, sales, office admin & mgt, I even tuned a '61 Rambler when I stopped for gas the other day. LOL
Do you have any pets? (We love pet pictures!)
Rudi, my 5 yr old GSD mutt is my main man
Look at that face! Yeah he['s the sweetest boy. We’re going to classes for Rudiboy to be a Therapy Dog, visitng hospital;s; the sick, infirm, senior, bereaved, homeless, etc; ; have a kid Read to a Dog; etc. He’s a natrual for it, They say he’s the Heartbeat of my community here
. Here he is at the local College football game - he’s the mascot , my neighbors are the football teammates.
Also have Mollycat who beats Rudi up, age 11.
What first attracted you to Republic Wireless?
Reasonable (!) costs for phone servicei I believed then, and still do now, that we should not have to pay for WiFi.
What was your first Republic phone and what is your current Republic phone?
Honestly dont remember my 1zt phone. A Samsung maybe? Currently have a Moto Plus4. Like it better than the Plus 5 I had prior. I like the extra battery time AND the weight - dont drop it as often!
What is your favorite tip or trick you learned here, and from whom?
I learned from the forum (forget his name but thanked him!) how to inactivate my prior phone that someone took.
What is your favorite sports team and why?
Sports? We dont need no stinkin’ sports.
What are your favorite foods and/or beverages (Share a photo of something you’ve recently cooked or consumed)
Wine, wine and wine. Guess where I live - Sonoma COunty CA - known as Wine Country. See my ID photo.
What was the last book, blog, TV series, music, video game, or movie you enjoyed, and/or what is your all-time favorite?
Hmmm thats tough. I love reading, watching historical fiction esp WWII and/or spy and mystery types. Fir non-fiction I’m learning about the local flora here in No CA - going mushroom hunting next wknd and seaweed foraging after that. Currently watching Peaky Blinders (love the music, based on a real gang and person! Google it. )
Where is the best place you’ve ever traveled or place you’d most like to visit? (Share a personal travel photo.)
Enjoy something of every culture, geographical area. There is no way to say whats best… Tho I’m from the NYC Metro area and in some ways I miss it…
