LINK/INFO: — Review: Novatel Wireless USB727 USB Modem for Verizon | Mobile | Geek.com

The USB727 is a more attractive product than many of the mobile broadband cards we have seen in the past. The first thing people will notice is that it is smaller than you might expect. At about 3.5″ x 1″ x 0.5″ the USB727 is not much bigger than a pack of chewing gum and isn’t much heavier either. Some additions you might not expect are a microSD slot (up to 4GB) and an external antenna jack in case you want to get a little bit more reach, though an antenna is not included. That microSD slot could come in handy if you need to transfer data to a device like a cell phone, but don’t want to carry a card reader with you. As with much of the competition, it has a flip-up antenna and a LED indicator light across the top. It is GPS-capable (depending on your carrier) and has no battery on-board so it’s always ready to go.

Phil,

I’m replying to a post that is older, but I hope you receive this. The family you are looking for has a detailed history at http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~silver/south/ancesthome.html

I am a descendant of Jacob Silver (no “s” on the end). Charles was his half brother by George, Jr.’s first wife. Hope this helps.

I’m interested in any other information about lines back from George Silver (Jung Silber) and also the Mode family of western North Carolina.

Crafting? Nope, Doing An Inventory of Books For Sale

Welcome to June 2013!

The past weekend did not goes as we had planned for it to; instead Dave and I stayed indoors.

MONDAY:

Found us both still a bit ‘out of sorts’ (some kind of bug going around, is my guess).

Even so, we are at Valley Antiques until 5:00 pm — Dave is at the front counter; I am in the office/booth doing book inventory and pricing. Going through books can be a ‘slow go’ — even so, the new BOOK NOOK is getting to look as it should, in our booth.

With each batch of books, I have to shift categories around, so the corner will be a jumble for a while.

I guess I’d best get back to the books — have just over a dozen action books that need to be bagged and priced.

Will post again when I get a chance.
