3.  Update on cat allergic reaction – I am better this morning but for a while last night I was thinking I may have needed to go the hospital.  I can’t believe how much my chest hurt and was so tight.  I took the allergy pill and I drank a can of coke (caffeine opens the airways).   Today my nose is till a bit plugged, but my chest is normal.  I think I may have to keep allergy pills on hand in my purse (non-drowsy ones).

4.  How I justified buying a KINDLE - 

5.  The Lifestyle of a Minimalist Digital Nomad – and Why You Don’t Need To Be One   ---
There were several things that I considered essential based on their ability to replace multiple objects: a laptop, a good camera, and a smartphone.
The digital camera, for example, became both my video camera and my scanner. The smartphone became a whole slew of other small accessories: Calculator, address book, MP3 player, WiFi finder, and more.
The laptop became my entire library, full of ebooks, podcasts, and maps. It also acted as my filing cabinet, containing digital copies of anything that I didn’t require a hard copy of (I use the digital camera to capture high-res images of papers and receipts).
The Internet is probably one of the most useful tools: I use it to research the places I’m going visit, find and reserve cheap places to stay, purchase airplane tickets, and even take care of all my banking and bill payments. It also acts as my primary means of communication with Skype, Email, Facebook, and Twitter. I even check my physical postal mail online using a service called EarthClassMail.
A minimalist digital nomad eliminates physical objects and reduces the requirement to be in a physical location by finding creative ways to use technology.
