Writing tools

I use 3 different computers on a daily basis, several phones, and a couple tablets- all part of the job.

I really think taking notes… Continue reading Writing tools

EV Tipping Point

Yesterday, Ford announced the F-150 Lightning- an all electric pickup truck, and I think this will be the tipping point for EVs.
