Finally Back

My laptop finally died. So off I went to Best Buy for a new one. I usually buy my computers at Walmart but I wouldn't have been able to do the transfer of pictures and other things. And after the mess the other guy made out of my laptop I wasn't taking any chances again. So I paid to have service from the Geek squad for a year and maybe next year I will extend it.

I had a busy week getting things crossed off my very important to do list. So happy the weather has cooled off so I could get out and about. Needed to make a trip down town to record somethings and couldn't believe the changes they are making. Huge buildings that looked like condos and maybe apartments. Everything is a one way streets. Took a few circles around blocks to get to where I needed to be. I managed to get a lot of things crossed off my list. I even mailed my early voting in today.

I did lose all my blogs so I will work on that as I go along. So if I missed you please let me know and I will add you back in. I seem to have lost my side bar too. Getting WiFi set up required a call but I had really good luck with this guy today.

On top of all the running around I came down with a very nasty head cold which has caused lots of coughing and my throat is so scratchy now that it makes me cough even more. Drinking lots of tea, honey and lemon.

Good Night All


  1. I hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse than starting off the winter with a scratchy throat or a cough.

    I hate the thought of having to buy another computer. You're smart to get the Geek Squad Service too.

    I mailed my ballot in last week. Hated to do it because I planned on not voting this time with the choices offered, but I did. I will be so glad when it's all over with.

  2. I hate getting a new computer because it is such a pain to get it all set up and transferred. Always a good thing to get errands done.

  3. Hi Gypsy,

    thanks for the well wishes just doesn't seem t be letting go of me.

    I hate this set up and so glad I signed up for the Geek squad, as soon as I feel better I am going to go back as I can't find any blogs but my own and yours. At least I read most of what is on your side bar so I can still read and follow.

    Hi Sandie,

    I tell you I don't understand why Windows had to go and change a perfectly good windows 7. Yes those errands really needed to be done a very long time ago. Still have one large file to be filled out but I think I may have to set up a appt. with my Dr. to get it finished.

  4. Hi Jo! I am following you on your blog again. i have recently re-started blogging on "Changing Lanes". I plan on leaving PA this Friday the 21st. Wont have internet till I land in KY, but I will be blogging regularly again so lets keep up with each other. I will be in AZ this winter barring any unforseen circumstances. :)

  5. Hi Sunny,
    So happy you will be blogging again on your new adventure. I have added you to the blog. Sure hope you make it back here to Tucson. Safe travels.
    I think I am on the mend but this cough has all my muscle really screaming

  6. I subscribe the Carbonite. It's a backup service. Thinking it is worth the $50.00 a year. If things are lost, it's a snap to load it back on the computer or even a new computer. Just go on their site, push a few keys and presto..... back to normal. EVERYTHING back on just the way it was left.

  7. Hi Phyllis,
    Might be worth it, I just found that the blogs I did find are not updating. thanks for the tip

  8. Hope you are feeling better. Son somewhere picked up strep throat and ran some high temperatures, sore throat, etc. so be careful. Love our autumn weather.

  9. Hi Emily,

    What ever this is has really caused me some issues my stomach muscles are on fire from the coughing. If it isn't better my morning I guess I'll go to errant care so I can get something for this cough. It seems to have calmed down but not enough. Hope to see a post from you soon.

  10. I have started backing up my laptop and putting my photos and documents on thumb drives JIC cause my laptop suffered a bad spill on my recent trip..One day I forgot to secure it and that's the same day I had to slam on brakes!! Glad you got yours all up and running make sure you add me back I always enjoy your visits!! My sis had that dreadful cold about 2 weeks ago...she is still coughing! Hope yours is short lived! Take Care.

  11. Hi Sondra,
    Hope your computer hasn't suffered any bad effect. As soon as I feel well I will pick up some of those thumb drives. I have been able to add you back in as I love going over and reading your blog and feasting on your beautiful photos.

  12. Hi Jo! Sorry to hear about the computer woes. I understand about the difference between Walmart and Best Buy. The Geek Squad works pretty hard to keep you up and running. My sister uses their service and loves it.

    I'm glad your blog is still running. That Carbonite thing might be a good investment for my PC, too. Take care!
