Oh, this is much, much better!! I just finished switching the new keyboard with my husband's old keyboard. I was wrong about his keyboard, though. It's identical to my old one. It doesn't have lit keys. Here is my new, old keyboard! 😀 Believe it or not, I actually cleaned this a bit, already... 😀 … Continue reading Ah, much better. Also, I was wrong
I made a quick run to the post office/general store today, as we were expecting packages. After picking up the package at the post office, the store owner came up to me, asking if I was expecting a package from somewhere "far off". I wasn't, but my daughter was. She wasn't sure how it would … Continue reading Learning to type again.
First up, many thanks to Fyreglass and her hubby for all the help with my technical difficulties! So far, the problem hasn't been solved, but my goodness, my computer is working much more efficiently! 😀 In fact, as I type this, the text is showing up as a combination of black and magenta. I am … Continue reading Technical difficulties: still figuring it out
Okay, so I thought my monitor was the problem, we got a new one, and... The problem hasn't gone away. This is what my gmail looked like a little while ago. I use the past tense, because when I go to another tab, then come back to it, I see the text, only to have … Continue reading What is this? (question for the techies)
It was a really gorgeous morning out, while I was doing my rounds. The trees were covered with frost - but only the tops! 😀 It was not a very productive day today, unfortunately. I think I spent too much time on the computer yesterday, leaving me with a weird headache all night, making it … Continue reading Frosted

At the far end is the power button, then where the knob pops on, the start/pause button, and then the controls for temperature, spin and soil. There is no … Continue reading Fixed!
I have been trying for days to upload images, with very little success. We have had no real problems going online. It is just uploading that is an issue. This might be why. 😒 At one point, during the doors test, the upload speed dropped to 0.01mbps. Also, it took a couple of tries to … Continue reading Speed test
First, the cute stuff. My husband passed the furry little bean off to me this morning, while I was at the desktop. Dave promptly curled up in a ball and fell asleep on my chest, making the most interesting nose noises. He then abruptly stood up, clambered up my shoulder, leapt across the chasm to … Continue reading Kitty Cuddles, and technical difficulties
Okay, I'm being only slightly sarcastic with that title... 😉 The cold snap continues, and is supposed to continue for about a week. The above picture was taken a few days ago, on the last milder day, just before we headed into town to get to the pharmacy before the weather got worse. The camera … Continue reading Fun times…
After monitoring my system data usage through April, I thought for sure the Data Vampire had been vanquished. In fact, I didn't even bother resetting the data usage meter when I checked it at the end of the month. Even though there was a sudden spike of almost 25 gigs at the end of the … Continue reading The Data Vampire, returns!
