This coming Monday I will probably be ordering a new computer through a friend of my son's who is a Mac technician. Yup, after putting in as much money as it would have cost to get a Mac, I'm actually breaking down and getting one. Since the young man who's helping me is giving me every break he can, I hopefully will have a new Mac Mini by the end of next week.
Keep us in your prayers that all plays out okay. I am really pumped about possibly getting a really decent computer after years of dealing with the ones we've had. Besides...I am a Mac person! I had one as my first computer and I LOVE them! I only settled for a PC because of the cost issue. But when we looked at how much we'd wasted getting the PCs fixed it came out to MORE than what a Mac is worth! (My husband's words!)
I am ready for a change, and a return to the best computer for what I do - writing and creating newsletters. I cannot wait!!!

I usually need to sip something whilst enjoying these luscious grapes, and have over the years experimented with many liquid concoctions - not all of them elixirs of the gods! I tried Koolaide at about ten years old - it left much to be desired. As I got older I would share those grapes with many forms of liquid refreshment, but none quite hit the spot. I even tried some French bubbly which was grand, but the sparkling drink did tend to overpower the taste of the grapes.
Finally, I tried something that made my poor husband think I was totally crazy! I found that a good, light German beer turned out to be fabulous with my favorite fruit! First, you have to know that I am very European in my tastes and love good ales, stouts and beers warm. Yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before - I am totally crazy, and, "What is wrong with your taste buds girl!"
Well, it is a choice, and my combo at the moment. I really think that the crisp flavors of each really compliment each other...that is my opinion, of course!
And as they say, there's no accounting for personal taste. ;-)
