  2. I'm a disabled baby boomer. I was born in 1961, I am a musician, and took up art after losing my career in nursing to my health. I'm not great at editing, and wish someone could teach me. But I actually use my phone for my YouTube channel, and teach painting, drawing etc. After beginning my YouTube channel, I kind of phased away from Facebook. My type of channel is one that takes a while to build a following in but my subscribers are wonderful people, and I love communicating with them. I try to respond to every comment which I feel is essential and hear this from my viewers all the time. I have posted comments and questions to others channels, millenials and genX'ers who never reply. Or they're rude. If I felt better I'd start a different channel but it's a lot of work, especially when I'm not feeling well. I've been at it about one year.

  3. Good morning my friend! I'm a baby boomer, and my passion is horticulture…gardening, etc. The purple plant you have is Tradescantia–common name is "purple heart". It has brittle stems, and when a stem breaks-remove lower leaves–stick your little finger in the soil about an inch or two, and put the stem in there. It will grow a whole new plant. It's really that easy with this plant. I developed a large bed with this plant-made from broken stems lying on the ground. The only thing that can kill this plant is over-watering. So water only occasionally, and lightly It's beautiful, and tough. Poor squirrel!!! 🙁 :(:( I'm sure Ric is right though, instantaneous. That's a small comfort at least. Wonderful advice from you-as always! Margie

  4. hello….I've watched and enjoyed a bunch of your videos and finally subscribed to your channel. I know quite a bit about the sunny state and have lived there before. within a year, I should be back for good as I plan on retiring…FINALLY!!! your videos are helpful to many people, including myself.
    you have a very peaceful demeanor and I find that quite refreshing!!!
    good luck on your move and next life venture….God Bless 🙂
