Well, that certainly was not the Sunday I antisipated!

seems old Microsoft updated some file and when they did, it turned on a proxy value it shouldn't have. I couldn't get on the internet. finally, using AT & T trouble shooting device, they discovered the problem and before you can say, oops, I simply un checked a box and presto, back on the internet.

For a treat, all of you should visit . the more I see, I more I'm fascinated by the talented artists who enter this contest.
ok, I'm off.

  • The backup is finished. only 23 hours this time.

    Yeah, it was time to back up the old computer. It is really sluggish and that’s not good. I'll be installing the other PC later this…

  • May he rest in peace...

    I just finished watching Prince Phillip's funeral. A sad occasion, especially for his wife, "The Queen". I wish her well. Today,…
