Thinking Out LOUD Forget the pills. I’ll take pillows!

I

love pillows, and I love them because the right new pillow can change my whole mood! That said, too many new pillows can render a couch completely useless— which I happen to know because I have just such a couch. Overstuffed and a little over-thetop, thanks to no less than five coordinating fabrics, it’s frivolous and fun. In fact, it’s so frivolous and fun, that I used to have two equally overstuffed, over-the-top pillows poised at each end. I still think they made the whole thing look like the softest, happiest place on earth, but any attempt to actually sit on it left guests foundering helplessly in a sea of eiderdown, so I’ve had to cut back. Now, two modest pillows punctuate my sofa like two little parentheses, dull but useful. The good news is that there’s still my bedroom, where seven pillows bursting with feathers and colors always make me smile. Seems one sure cure for feeling down is feeling down — and when I’m blue, adding a little yellow, some green, and a bit of pink works wonders!

Technically Challenged This is a monologue from my mom about the difference between 3G, 4G, and 3D (I was typing as she spoke): “I think 3g and 4g have to do with different satellite things. I think 3G is maybe third generation but 4G is 4th generation, but it all has to do with satellite stuff. When I go into the stores and look at 3G and 4G TVs, it looks blurry. Laugh all you want! It’s blurry. Do I need certain glasses to look at it? I don’t understand. Do you not see blur when you look at those big flat screen TVs? The big flat screen are 3Gs and 4Gs TVs. The people’s heads are blurry and smaller. So explain to me the difference between 3G, 4G and 3D. I don’t get it.” Samitha K M ay 3 1 , 2 0 1 1

ou’ll wish you were made of steel on Monday, as a challenge requires superhuman strength. Combine what brawn you do have with a tremendous amount of your brain and you should be set. Tuesday and Wednesday are an extended juggling act -- and you’re not even juggling typical stuff, you’re juggling fire hydrants and mattresses. What you really need -- and what you’re not going to get on Thursday and Friday -- is a break. Instead, you’ll be putting out fires, guarding your territory and telling friends to simmer down. What an exhausting week! It isn’t until Sunday that you get to be yourself.

Technically Challenged My mom told me to stop taking pictures on my phone because, if I continued, we were gonna get a huge bill that month “since it cost money to take pictures”. Dylan D My grandma asked me to check her phone’s voicemail from my phone by typing in her password. She insisted that it would work and that I should at least try. Becca R My grandfather lives with us, and he’s actually much more computer savvy than my mother, but then again, that isn’t saying much. So, when I had to print a paper, I emailed it to myself and opened it on his computer, the only one in the house with a working printer. After I finished printing it, he asked if I needed to keep the document. When I told him I didn’t need it, he began to backspace the whole thing. All 14 pages of it. Andrew F

Funnifieds • I’m cle’a[ni.ng m’y’ ke]yb36oa;rd. • I took the “Are you spending too much time on Facebook” quiz and the result is “No – You should spend much more time”.

Technically Challenged After my wedding, my uncle mailed a USB flash drive to my mom with wedding pictures on it. Why he didn’t just email the pictures, I have no idea. After my mom got the flash drive, she called my wife proclaiming that the drive did not fit into the port when she tried to connect it to the computer. Apparently, she was trying to put the USB flash drive in the SD memory card slot on her printer. Then, she thought it had to go into the Sony memory stick slot because the flash drive “looks like a stick”. My wife explained that those slots were meant for camera memory cards. She replied “But it has pictures on it.” Jonathan R

Question: What’s the difference between a hunter and a fisherman? Answer: A hunter lies in wait while a fisherman waits and lies. “A lot of people complain about their dumb boss,” says Joey Adams. “What they don’t realize is that they’d be out of a job if their dumb boss were any smarter.”

Technically Challenged My mum and I were driving home and I was using the internet on my phone when my mum asked, ‘what are you doing?’ I then replied that I was checking Facebook. Amazed, my mum said, ‘wow, the internet must be pretty fast around here cause I’m going 100km/h.’ Tyler C My mum needed to find out train times for our local station, I told her that typing train times into Google would give her the best results. After twenty minutes, I walk into the office to discover that she has been searching for train times on the wikipedia page for the history of our local station. Dean H At a recent family get together, one of my younger cousins brought an iPad to the kitchen table. My dad says “Hey, is that a facebook?” Keith C 34

impact Of Free classifieds Study Shows Crier FREE CLASSIFIEDS Have Generated Approximately $100,000 For Local Economy Conservative application of the standard economic multiplier effect on investment small communities has concluded that The Valley Crier FREE CLASSIFIEDS donated to local residents have generated more than $100,000 through reinvestment in the local economy.

This is a very common method that tourism organizations use to project their impact in stimulating an area’s economy. It’s a fun way to make a substantial contribution, don’t you think? So hats off to The Crier and all of you who have participated!

In other words, because of the Crier FREE CLASSIFIEDS DEAL, they bought local goods and services with the tax free loot they received from selling their extra stuff to other people who sold it again and/or spent the cash on local goods and services, charities and so on, in the Valley.

Why we should be your Septic Company We are a local, family owned company with a licensed, certified and professional team. We complete your project on time and on budget .

Chris and Bryan(t) Litchfield Then and Now

Words from a Customer I don’t usually find myself writing in response to any services that I have received lately but I felt compelled to do so in this instance. I discovered while handling my mother’s estate that there was a need for some septic system work at her home. I felt vulnerable looking for someone in this field as I had not had the need to utilize those services previously. I, quite by chance, came across an ad for Christopher Bryant Co. and was taken by the picture that accompanied the ad. It spoke to “family” and had the message of someone I wanted to do business with. I called and was pleasantly surprised when Melissa, a pleasant individual, who was eager to assist me with my problem took my call. In today’s world where customer service is a dying breed, it was so refreshing to find a company who truly knew how to present themselves and put the customer first. From the first call to the closing handshake of the completed work, my family and I were treated with such respect. It was clear that pleasing us was their goal. We were not disappointed in the least. When we met with Bryan he truly alleviated any fears we may have had with the confidence he displayed. I can’t say enough about Bryan (and his helper whose name I neglected to get..I am so sorry). The work they performed was fantastic. I always believe that word of mouth is your best advertisement so I will be singing their praises. I encourage anyone who is looking for a reputable, caring and capable company in this day and age to give Christopher Bryant Co. a call. I also would be more than happy to speak with anyone looking for a referral. Sincerely, Elaine S. McNeely, Simsbury Customer
