Remarkable advancements in artificial intelligence and voice control devices, make me thankful that , dealing with diseases that definitely suck  comes at a time where I can take full advantage of these relatively inexpensive and easily obtained technology devices.  Recently my husband got me A “smart plug” to be used with a standard desk fan. Having issues controlling my body temperature, especially during these hot summer days, would force me to ask someone for help turning on and off a fan as needed. Now, with the use of the smart plug device, and the Amazon Alexa (echo dot), I can easily control the fan with my voice. See the sidebar for links to the device I useā€¦. The set up is minimal and done through an app.  It is helpful to search for a fan that is not overly loud as you need to be able to be heard by the Alexa to voice command it off.
