Happy New Year! The World Did Not End Sept 23rd, Oct 23rd or Nov 7th

Wishing Everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year! Yes, I know, the world was supposed to end this year on a couple of dates. Something about a rogue planet, called Planet X, was supposed to collide with us? No one knew exactly when so there were quite a few dates thrown out there.

So here is my latest Hello World Posting… This is my Blog. Welcome! After growing up just outside the Sanctuary City called NYC, I had branded myself as a blogger from Long Island.

Anyway… Here is how to setup your twitter account to receive tweets from any account via SMS.
