Not a lot going on today. I’ve got Ghost duty, so I need to be at S&L’s several times today. Just finished baking bread and it’s cooling on the counter. Kind of nodding off in the reading chair whenBEEEPbuzzzBLEEEPbuzzzBLEEEPbuzzzBLEEEP

Wha! Whathuhell…?

This new smartphone Landlady gave me is rigged to respond to “Amber Alerts,” it seems. Because it’s gonna do everybody a hell of a lot of good if the smelly old hermit three hundred miles away knows all about a kid being snatched in Alfergod’ssakebuquerque.

Oh, there’s got to be a way to turn that off…

ETA: Fixed, hopefully.

    Settings – Notifications – scroll to bottom and turn off. I reached my limit on the beach in South Carolina when I kept getting alerts from New Jersey.

    Yeah, got it. Did that. It’ll probably fix the problem.

    Look at it this way. Next time Ghost – or LB for that matter – is taking his time to do his “business”, just set that off. Since neither has most likely heard such before, it might get them “moving” rather quickly!

    Just make sure they’re OUTSIDE before you do so, of course…

    I have a “dumb” phone. I can modify all the alerts except the Presidential Alert. His Importance is allowed to intrude despite my peasantly wishes.

To the stake with the heretic!
