Cell Phone Upgrade Required for Hearing Aids Chef Dolores ordered new Oticon hearing aids to replace her old ones that are six years old. She discovered that her new Samsung Galaxy S21 5G is not compatible with the new hearing aids. We went to Verizon and upgraded her phone to the new Samsung Galaxy S215G. By the way, the $6,000+ cost of new hearing aids is not covered by Medicare. Can you imagine the number of seniors who are unable to afford these expenses? Peony, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland USACanon PowerShot G11 CameraPhotograph by Roy KelleyRoy and Dolores Kelley Photographs

Beer Selection: Sierra Nevada Fantastic Haze Imperial IPA I was reading In Her Tracks by Robert Dugoni and decided to have a beer. My selection was the Sierra Nevada Fantastic Haze Imperial IPA. If you enjoy, IPAs, this is one to include on your shopping list. Drink responsibly. 9% Alc. by Vol. You will also want to read the book, #8 in the series featuring Detective Tracy Crosswhite. The DetailsWe were in search of something fantastic. Something juicy, something hazy, something ripe with notes of mango, melon and citrus. So we said, "Reason be damned," and filled our kettles with five hop varieties and loads of malt, oats and wheat. Some may call that absurd. We call it absurdly fantastic. Orchids, Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA USA IMG 4374Canon PowerShot G11 CameraPhotograph by...

Our Visit to Shoppers It was time to get a new supply of wine and beer and I decided to visit our local Shoppers Food Warehouse store in Germantown, Maryland. They have a nice selection of wine and beer. Chef Dolores went with me to do some grocery shopping. It was her first time in a grocery store since last March. How times have changed when a trip to a grocery store becomes a special outing.During the pandemic, we have relied upon family shoppers and delivery services for most of our needs.

Maryland Magicicada Months: May and June, 2021 The approaching emergence of billions of 17-year cicadas in Maryland and nearby states will provide fodder for scientists to study, allow residents to help researchers spot the swarms, and may liven up dining since there are even recipes featuring the insects. Gov. Larry Hogan on Friday issued a proclamation declaring May and June 2021 as Maryland Magicicada Months to generate public awareness about the insects. Brood X periodical cicadas are only found in the eastern United States and emerge once every 17 years. In Maryland, they will begin to emerge in early May and will die off by the end of June. "I encourage all Marylanders to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about these remarkable, harmless creatures," Hogan said in a news ...

Maryland Citizen Scientists Needed to Help Count Cicadas  If your fascination with the upcoming emergence of billions of 17-year cicadas in Maryland exceeds your tolerance level for creepy-crawly things, you have an opportunity to become part of what may become an unprecedented citizen-scientist effort.
