Help Please! Printer Cartridge ???

epson printer

If there are any printer cartridge experts reading this, here’s my question…

I have an Epson XP- 310 printer that I don’t like and plan to replace soon. 

Right now though, I have a FULL black ink cartridge in this printer but the color cartridges are running low or are empty. I’d like to use up this black cartridge before I get rid of this printer permanently.

I noted online that there is a way to override their (silly!!!) defaults of requiring all the cartridges to have ink in them, even when you only require black and white printing.

I went through the steps to find the driver for this printer but when I selected the right one on the list, it came up as “cannot change driver for this printer”! :(  What????

I’m not trying to change the driver, just select it. 

After that step is accomplished (which for me didn’t happen) there is a step in the maintenance tab apparently where you choose “status 3″ and this will allow black cartridge only printing for a limited period of time.

If anyone can help with this, I’d be oh so grateful! :)

Heading off on my trip tomorrow but will be stopping in here and at WP Reader, now and then next week. 

Have a great week! 


Changes, A Trip and Happy Thanksgiving!


I read a quote similar to the one above at a WP blog, a couple of weeks ago.

It really made me stop and think about this simple but rather profound statement.

So many of us fear changes in life.

But without making changes when necessary, everything stays as it is or changes in ways beyond our control.

Change CAN be scary. :(

But it can also provide a beginning and a new, exciting direction down the path of life. :)

Are you afraid of big changes in life or do you embrace them? 


I’m heading to the beautiful Okanagan area of BC at the end of this week, you can read more about that here.

In the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers and a beautiful week to all. :)


Using Public WiFi Safely

Have you ever wondered just how secure it is to use public WiFi when you are out and about, say: at a department store, coffee shop, public library?

I was thinking about that today and came across this tip list that gives some good suggestions how to keep your laptop, cell phone….more secure, when you are online in public places. I hope you find it helpful too.

Hackers ARE everywhere, :( we need to take steps to keep them out, wherever we are

Happy and Safe Browsing! :)


Book Review: Getting to Mr. Right by Carol Balawyder

getting to mr right cover

I am so excited for my blog pal: Carol Balawyder who has now published her third book:

Getting to Mr. Right. 

Congrats Carol and well done! :)

And as I said in my 5 star review over at Amazon, Getting to Mr. Right is definitely RIGHT ON!

Here’s my review from Amazon:

Getting to Mr. Right is Definitely RIGHT ON!!! 

I had previously read: Missi’s Dating Adventures by Carol Balawyder and thoroughly enjoyed it. She did not disappoint with her newest book: Getting to Mr. Right.

This is another great story from start to finish, albeit with a more serious tone overall this time. Her writing style has also evolved and matured providing a story that flows quite seamlessly throughout.

The characters in this book are well developed, the plot has just enough twists and turns to keep things interesting and the ending is satisfying and spot on.

If you have ever struggled to find Mr.Right, have dipped into the sometimes perilous waters of online and particularly over 40 dating, this is a must read.

Highly recommended!


If you are looking for a fun, entertaining and at times, enlightening book to curl up with this weekend, you might want to check this one out. I’m sure glad I did. ;)

Happy Weekend and Reading. 

PS: Another book/eBook you might enjoy and that will be available as a free Kindle download for today and Saturday is:

Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well by…. ME! ;)

You can read all the details about the free promo here. 


Your Techie Assistance Please!!! ;-)





I’d like to make a meditation/visualization CD to use after my yoga practice but don’t know how to do this.

I have the background music I want to use (on another CD) and want to do a voice-over of a meditation/visualization that I’ve created myself as part of my new CD.

If you can suggest an easy way to do this, I’d be very grateful. :)

I have yet to hear a meditation/visualization CD that I really like so I decided to try to create one of my own. 

Have a wonderful week and again, thanks if you can help.
