Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

Why I Hate My Laptop

I had a FABULOUS post all typed out.  Several long paragraphs.  I'm sitting with the laptop propped up against my deck in an uncomfortable position.  I sneezed.  Somehow the entire post was highlighted and I hit a key at the same time and the whole stinkin' thing disappeared.


I just don't have the heart to type it all over again.  I simply MUST figure out why it is that my desktop computer won't access the internet.  I have three other computers in this house that will access the internet.  There are two wireless laptops, and one I use for work that is straight wired (however through the same wireless router).  I took my desktop to the Geek Squad, and they could access it down there both wirelessly and wired.  So I don't know why it won't do it here at home.  Comcast says it's the Dell computer.  Dell says it's Comcast.  ....sigh.... what's a computer illiterate supposed to do??? 

But I will attempt to figure it out.  Because I really do hate trying to do serious typing on this silly laptop.  When I'm working on my book, I use a peripheral keyboard, but I don't usually drag it out for everyday surfing.

It has been a while since I posted, an I had a good story to share tonight.  I'm sorry you missed it.  Maybe I'll be inspired to try it again tomorrow night.  Just do me a favor.  Laugh.  Because it was really funny.  So just take my word for it and go on and have yourself a good laugh.  The endorphins will do you good.  :-)

  1. HATE when that happens! If you don't do anything else after it vanishes, you can sometimes get it back with Control Z (undo).
