I broke my keyboard
Last Updated: January 4, 2021
Oh Rats! Broke my keyborad just now. A big book called the Dead Sea Scrolls fell off my book shelf and crashed into my keyboard. I now have little plastic pieces on my desk now which\I know I won't be able to glue together again. But it is Ok as I am typing on it now.. It just broke one of the flip out tabs that was used to hold keyboard at an angle. So now I have to type with the keyboard flat.No big deal. Accidents happen. Just have to go on now with a flat keyboard but I can fix that.

I leaned to fly an airplane poorly until I could do it well and ultimately became an airline pilot, chief pilot and flight instructor.Hang in there and keep trying until you can do it well...like doing Wealthy Affiliate well.Still working at Wealthy Affiliate and some other things until I can do them well.I

Getting there slowly again. Secret of success is to keep starting over again and again. . Just checked my rank is down to 306. Was up in November to 4867. Doing a lot of things that take time and money. Just got out of hospital where doctors and 100 other nurses, techies, etc. implanted a combination pacemaker and defibrillator in my chest and heart. I must b e like the 6 million dollar man with all the implants. Walking, talking, still going.Not supposed to lift anything over 5 pounds.
