Acording to blogger, I’m on my 404th post. OK, it doesn’t look that good that way, but I’ve posted 404 times! 404 errors are fun, but they aren’t fun when the web page I’m trying to find is missing. I’m getting up early, like extra early! I’ll be getting up at about 2:45 tomorrow morning, … [Read more…]

Answering a question.

At what age did you stop believing in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy? How did your parents tell you? Did you/are you handling it differently with your kids?I don’t really remember, although I do spacifically remember the conversation about Santa Claus. We were sitting around the dinner table and either my … [Read more…]


I went to the VA today, and finished the meeting minutes on meeting minutes. I didn’t have any work after that though, so I came home early. This morning, before I left for the VA, I was trying to figure out why the service pack 1 update for windows 7 keeps failing. I’ve tried a … [Read more…]

400th post!

I’m skipping Saturday 7 this week, because well… um… I could probably list 77 reasons why I’m skipping Saturday 7, but I’m not going to do that. But this is my 400th post on the blog! OK, so it was supposed to come yesterday, so it’s a bit delayed! That’s pretty much the way my … [Read more…]


This week is IComLeavWe, (international comment leaving week.) I have the link on the blog, but at the rate we’re going, it would probably take me a half hour to find it. But I know it’s there, because I put it there… um… let’s see, Was it yesterday? Now I don’t remember! It actually started … [Read more…]

Back up.

My friend and I spent most of the day on the phone with HP support. They walked us through lots of things, but in the end, a full restoration had to be done. My friend had to leave to go to her boyfriend’s chiropractor appointment. When they came back, we managed to complete the setup … [Read more…]

Yesterday and today.

I called HP yesterday. I wasn’t prepared, and didn’t have the serial number for my computer, so they couldn’t really do anything. When I bought the computer 6 months ago, (yep, it’s only been 6 months!) I got the warranty that will allow them to come out here and fix things if they break. My … [Read more…]

A question

What do you think happens to a blogger once they disappear? Do you think they give up? Take up a new hobby? Do it all on Facebook??? Most likely it’s because of twitter, but some people probably just forget. I know I wouldn’t use facebook for blogging, and for me, Twitter doesn’t make much sense … [Read more…]

Yesterday: a day of shutdowns.

So when I got up really, really early yesterday, I was reading tweets that download squad was shutting down. DownloadSquad was a cool blog that covered software and web stuff too. So, here are some links about this: AOL/HuffPo Shuts Down Download Squad, from ZDNet AOL Shuts Down Software Blog Download Squad, from Mashable. Cisco … [Read more…]

Interesting day.

My day at the VA was interesting today. When I first got in there, they told me they did need me twice a week after all. They have a headset for me there now, so I can call on the phone and read my script at the exact same time, without anyone hearing what’s going … [Read more…]
