I am part of the Verizon Wireless #VZWBuzz Influencer team.  This month's post is about how technology helps us in our daily lives and all the ways I used mobile tech this month.  I have been a Verizon Wireless customer for over ten years.  When nobody else gets a signal - my network is lightning fast! 

January was a big month for me.  I celebrated a birthday, we spent New Year's Eve in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee AND I attended my very first Sundance Film Festival.  Where by the way, I had my very first zip lining adventure!  Yes, I am VERY lucky.

I'm reminded when I see the television spots of Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel in the BMW I3 commercial that it wasn't really that long ago that we were being introduced to the internet-much less smartphones.  So when I think of ALL the things I can do on the go - it's really pretty amazing!

Here are five ways I used mobile tech this month

Granted these are not miraculous amazing feats.  But you must admit it's pretty fantastic all the ways we use mobile tech in our daily lives.

How To Make Slime

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
— Carl Sagan

I haven't done many Vine videos-  I'm still practicing.  That's what makes it fun to be a Verizon Wireless #VZWBuzz Influencer.  #VZWBuzz is a group of social media Influencers who share their lifestyle experiences while using mobile tech devices.  This is my first video with the VERY cool Motorola Droid Turbo.  All opinions are my own.

We love Halloween and what better way to get things started than with a fun project!  Here is the recipe we used for making slime!

You will need two (2) bowls, water, Borax detergent booster, glue (clear or white), food coloring, and some sort of storage container or bag to keep the slime in.

In one bowl:  1 tsp borax and 1 cup of water.  Stir well.

In separate bowl:  5 oz glue and 1/2 a cup of water.  Stir well.  In this same bowl add approx. 6 drops of your favorite color of food coloring.  Mix well.

Combine glue mixture into the borax mixture.  Mix well, knead and drain the excess water.


This is also a fun post Halloween project!
