I had to change my phone settings because my SIL's name is Sean but my phone wouldn't let me type it. It kept changing it to Dean. Even if I went back and corrected it, it still changed it to Dean. Is there any way to override it?

Addie, ever since my heart surgery DH has been doing the vacuuming even though I CAN do it now. If he leaves this earth before I do I am getting a Roomba. And a 4-door car. And I'm going to turn the setting down on the air condition so I can wear summer clothes in the summer. And turn the heat down in the winter so I can wear winter clothes in the winter. I'm sure I could think of a few other things.

Just use the initials SIL.

GG, where did you find the app that learns your typing pattern? I could use that myself.

The Google Play Store. It's called SwiftKey.

We came back from our very nice visit with our kids back in Ohio and found a central air conditioning system that didn't want to cool. Since we've had to have tiny leaks fixed and a freon charge done three years ago we weren't surprised. Just sad thinking it could cost a ton. Or three, since our system is a 3-ton. Turns out that our technician now had a new weapon to seal leaks, but the increase in cost for the no-longer-made older freon still made it cost $275. Basically the cost of 3 nights in a cool hotel room. With temps in the upper 80s yesterday, it was money well-spent.

AND, true to form, the weather has now taken a change. We'll be having moderating temps and dryer weather through the weekend. *sigh* At least we'll save on the electricity costs, only to start using the A/C again by Monday. At least it will work!

We're having our old central ac system replaced and our contractor insists on replacing them (2 sets of units) with ones which use the older r22 freon. I know they're getting phased out but he gave me a list of reasons why the old freon is better and many ac contractors prefer this.
By law, new units with r22 are no longer made but apparently new r22 units without freon are available for sale. According to my contractor, they're called dry units and r22 freon is pumped into the unit upon installation and this is legal.
