Google Timer

A    L    O    H    A  !
" Time
 is a game
 played beautifully
 by children. "


" The life of our city 
is rich in poetic and 
marvelous subjects. 
We are enveloped 
and steeped as though 
in an atmosphere of 
the marvelous; 
but we do not notice it. "

Charles Baudelaire

" Whenever
 two people meet,
 there are really
 six people present. 
There is each one 
as he sees himself, 
each as seen 
by the other person,
 and each one
 as he really is. "

       William James


Want to know 
when your tea is ready,
so you don't forget,
and leave the bag in 
for 30 minutes
like I do?

Just go to 
Type in:
 "Timer 3 minutes." 
(or your desired time)

That's it!  
Google will beep
when the time is reached!

Thanks for telling about the Google timer!

Very thoughtful Heraclitus, Baudelaire, and James quotes!

As, as always, marvelous pictures!

Considering I've left a tea bag to steep for hours, the timer could be a good idea. Just how long is the correct amount of steeping? (Maui mango is best.)

You must get tired of the compliments but I can't stop giving them. Today the pictures and quotes are superb. My favorite is the first photo - so artisitic.
I love the William James quote.
Have a great weekend Claudia.
(I'll pass on your google tip to my husband the tea drinker.)

...and so the timer begins...2:56, 2:55....2:54 and ...1 m 14 s...until, wait for it... BEEP! Very cool, and it beeps until you shut it off! Thanks for always finding such useful stuff!

Sometimes when we age, we tend to forget the rules to the game.

I love the quote about two people meeting.

William Kendall said...

That timer for tea idea is a very good one!

I really like that James quote.

Elephant's Child said...

Three minutes? My tea would be waaaay past my comfort zone.
I am fascinated by the six (at least) who are present at every meeting. And would add another two - the people we would like to be/be seen to be.

But I am told that I like "over-steeped" tea... 3 minutes is not always enough to give my requisite jolt of caffeine.

Fireblossom said...

How do you find this stuff out? That's handy!

Hilary said...

Oh.. I'm so glad to learn about the timer. I SO need this sometimes. My microwave doesn't have a timer setting. Thank you. :)
