ATT Phone Plan

New Phone Plan

I changed from the Unlimited Elite Plan for $86 a month to the 15GB Prepaid Plan for $43 a month. This will definitely work while at home and could work on the road because it has rollover data. We'll see.


You can never talk to people but I updated my plan to a Family Plan so that we could get one bill instead of two. It seemed to work but the credit card still showed two charges. Also it cost $29.33 for the change.

Corby's Macbook Air

Corby's New Macbook Air

Corby's computer was getting old and no longer being updated. Because it wasn't being updated it was different then mine and so I had to think harder when she had a question.


Apple 13.6" MacBook Air (M2, Silver) MLY33LL/Afor $1,115.

  • Apple M2 8-Core Chip
  • 8GB Unified RAM | 256GB SSD
  • 13.6" 2560 x 1664 Liquid Retina Display
  • 8-Core GPU | 16-Core Neural Engine

It has the M2 processor and while I haven't used it much it seemed very fast.

iPhone 13 Mini

iPhone 13 Mini

We upgraded our phones today. We upgraded in 2017, 2020, and now 2023.

We got the 13 Mini (which is a year old) because Apple is no longer making the smaller phone. We both like the smaller form factor but I think with the increase in resolution it is still as easy to read.

Macbook Air

Macbook Air M1 2020n

My old computer was runing fine it's just that it is now 6 years old and no longer being supported for new operating updates. We'll see how this new machine does.

Celestron Spotting Scope

Celestron Hummingbird 9-27x56mm ED Micro Spotting Scope

This is a compromise but I hope it works out OK. Small for the van but better than binocs alone. We'll see.
