Circuit Boards

My mom has a hard time listening to music. I feel bad that it just doesn’t sound good to her, especially since that has been such an important part of her life. Today my brother took apart the old receiver and cleaned it to help it get a better sound. I looked inside it and […]

It has been a long time since I went to a caregivers group. Too long. Today I made sure I virtually attended the monthly group I belong to. It was wonderful to voice my concerns and struggles and to listen to those of the others. Mostly, it was great to be in an environment of […]
