One down, one to go.

Yesterday I finally did the disc for my nephews wedding. 


Now I have to do one for the Moose Phun Run (don't ask me why they spelled it that way, I have know idea).   They brought the boys from the WI house at Mooseheart here and had a charity run with them.  Fed and played games with them for a great day with the boys we sponsor.  As far as is known, this is the first time any lodge has hosted a day with the kids like this.  All reports indicate the boys had a great time.  I'm thinking this will be an annual thing now.

Poor Jack.  His laptop bit the dust yesterday.  Black screen.  We have a friend who does some computer work and he took it too him for evaluation.  He said the hard drive is okay, and the screen came on for a sec. and then went off again.  He managed to put all Jack's pictures and info on an external hard drive and told us who to take it to for more expert analysis.  He thinks in this case the machine is such a good one it's worth it to check it out.  They only charge an analysis fee if they can't fix it.  While there found out that's the place that fixed Sherry's.Now we are waiting to hear from them and Jack is pacing the floors.  Lol.  Do you suppose some of the honey-do list will get done now ;-).  No, I don't share.  I know, sounds mean, but when we all had to share before things tended to get really mixed up, freezing up became common etc.  Now if things go wrong I have no one else to blame. 

Well off to get on with the chores.  Suppose to be nice weather for a number of days, and I don't want to miss any chances of being outdoors.  Time is not on our side for enjoying good weather for some months ahead, and plan to take full advantage of whatever is left.

  1. Oh, I feel sorry for Jack. My computer crashed on the 15th and I had to buy a new one. It is really a pain in the wazoo to get a new computer up and running.

  2. I don't share mine either. My son managed to get a virus on mine a couple of years ago. The teenager that is my might as well be son that lives next door cleaned the entire machine but then we needed to buy windows to reinstall. It was as expensive as buying a new computer, so I just bought a new one. Then my might as well be son put a different program on the old computer that is FREE and no one pays attention to it in the computer world because there aren't enough people who use it to bother with infecting it with viruses, so my son uses it in his room. No security programs on it at all, and after two years of searching the internet, it's still running tip top. Isn't that weird? The program is calle Ubuntu...I think that's how you spell it. It takes an Einstein to know how to install it, but my might as well be son is just that. We were lucky we didn't have to toss it.

  3. That really sucks when a computer goes down. It's never convenient to have that happen and if you lose stuff before it can be saved it's really bad. I have an external hard drive for much of my stuff but I don't think I'd like a total crash none the less.

    I've always wanted to join a lodge.

    1. The Moose Phun Run sounds like a lot of fun. I bet many others are hoping that it may become an annual event too!Sorry to hear about your Hubby's computer crashing. No fun. I don't "hate" anything about computers, but they can be a source of frustration from time to time -- sometimes it's the hardware or software, sometimes it's a PEBCAK error - Problem Exists Between Chair and Keyboard and if I'm the one sitting in the chair, that's even more frustrating.

  7. Those video discs are a great idea, perfect way to capture and store memories for a long time to come.
