    dear Lord...your mum was such a strong willed person, she must have wanted you desperately to have been prepared to suffer so much to have you...


    Thank God the lord was listening to her prayers after you were born..


    Yes funnily enough..with regard to your pillow story... my father said I was so tiny.. that he could hold me completely in one of his hands.. just 2lbs' born... 10 weeks premature..one of a twin, both stillborn, but they only managed to resuscitate me and not my brother.


    However..just off topic for a second... I did get another brother 14months later...and we were totally joined at the hip, we went everywhere together...and everyone thought we were twins..

    I have just bought myself a iPhone and one of the first apps I put on it was Stocard ,it's an app for all your store / loyality cards ...I think it's a great app ..

    I no longer have a purse full of cards ....The cards I've added are my library ,flybuys ( Coles supermarket ) Costco ,spotlight ( fabrics and homewares ) Cinema ,Nonib ( ladies clothes ) Petrol discount dockets we get from Coles supermarket ...and few others

    I don't have any store cards in my wallet, I just put my phone number in when they ask for it.

    I'm not into my android cell that much but boy do I love app downloads for my Acer . I use cnet downloads exclusivily and have desktop icons for most every cleaning app cnet has. Couldn't get by without my Revo, Burgertime, Malwarebytes, .... too many to list. Never buy any type of app aids as they are all free from cnet.

    Skype, LinkedIn, BBC News, Netflix, Dictionary.com, Uber, WhatsApp(veeeery used in Brazil), Business Insider, Ali Express, banks, Antivirus, Malware, Speed test, Duolingo(for German and Irish), AVG cleaner, Weather, and some Brazilian apps for shopping with discounts and my cell phone company info. No Facebook, so I've got one to remind me people's birthdays as well. I was wondering... many of them are used just for work.;)

    I do not think that we have mentioned music apps; but I have Spotify, Pandora, and Amazon Music on my iPad that I use when I want to listen to music. I like Spotify because you can make actual playlists, whereas both Amazon Music and Pandora just play music they pick that is similar to what I like.
    Of course, this is a good way to hear new songs, and as you keep choosing favorite and dislikes, the app does a much better job of playing songs that I really do like.
    Pandora also has a new station called "Thumbprint Radio" , which is only the songs that you have given a "thumbs-up" to in the past. Since this is only playing songs that I liked before, but I never know what order they will come in, I really enjoy the thumbprint station.
    When I ask Alexa to play Pandora for me, it automatically goes to the thumbprint station unless I specifically ask for a different station. Alexa only plays Spotify if you have a premium Spotify account (and I only have the free version) so I can't start Spotify from Alexa; but I can play both Pandora or Amazon Music, or just ask for songs by a certain artist.

    I like that about Pandora because they do a pretty good job of it, and I often find musicians I would have never listened to otherwise.
