Potpourri Friday #37


Welcome to Potpourri Friday!



This week has been crazy for me!   I have been absent from posting and commenting as my computer croaked last Friday night.  I say croaked rather than crashed as it sort of died in it's sleep and didn't wake up.  I took it to the professional Geeks and long story short, it ended up with me having to purchase a new computer due to the pricey repair cost.  My hard drive wasn't damaged so they were able to transfer my data files, but not my installed programs, to my new computer.  But along came my own personal Geek squad and they did that work for me.  Easy-peasy when you have your own personal geeks.

What did I do during my time without a computer.  I cleaned up the office.  Mr. 2805 was so delighted, he called Hoarders and told them to cancel the shoot!

Now, to the blog.  It's crazy!  My blog, live on my computer, is in Veranda type.  In the edit mode, it's Georgia.  Live on computers everywhere, except my own, it's the font I've been using since my blog began, Papyrus.  I think I'm posting in Veranda today, (that's another story).  I'm thinking a major overhaul may be needed.
  Your constructive comments or emails on how it looks are welcome.  But time is of the essence so here we go!

The links were all outstanding last week, and I appreciate every one's participation.  Here are a few of the highlights!

  11. Hi Honey, my computer died shortly after I tried to wake it up, on Tuesday (my birthday), and I had a full day planned. Spent most of it running between stores. Could not be fixed and photos are lost! I am really upset with that. I did treat myself to a new lap top, I could have done without the expense right now, but I cannot be off the Internet, too addicted. I haven't posted yet, I haven't attempted to load photos, I don't know why. Still trying to get used to no mouse. It is tricky. Glad you are up and running. xo
