Well, the ornaments are all back in hibernation, but I'm leaving the bare, lighted trees up for tonight so I can light them up for Twelfth Night. Then I'll pack them away tomorrow.

We've been up since 6:30 a.m. and we've starving. Time to grab some lunch, fer sure!

Can't wait for it's arrival!

There's a file that you can download online and burn onto a CD or DVD; then you boot the computer with it, and it wipes everything. Caution, though ... it wipes EVERYTHING, so if you want it for games or something, you'd have to re-install the OS. I used it to wipe an old laptop before I took it to Staples for disposal.

I think that's it. Hope I haven't forgotten anything!
When and where you'll pick us up for dinner?

Well I just lit my Harvest and Holiday berry Yankee Candles..I am one of those weird folks who do not like burning "out of season" candles. Soon it will be time to buy the flower frangrances like honey dew melon and honeysuckle and my all time favorite white Gardenia..In summer I buy midsummer nights dream,clean cotton and macintosh..I can remember when they were 19.99 for the biggest size now they are 30!! I alone keep Yankee Candle Co in business. Brandi keeps telling me we need to go to the Flagship store in Mass...I would buy them out I think..it's kind of sad using the last of my holiday candles up..PCB's have been awful this year..I think back over my last 4 Christmases since I have lived here. I joined this lovely Website the second year and am so grateful I found this place..I know we all feel this way. Anyhow I can't believe it's already after 1..brandi just called and said she was on the way home from grocery store...code: get your can out in the driveway and unload groceries!!!

I mean, you can become used to it, but it's not Windows 7 or XP, I'll take them any day of the week. And it's not the user, it's the platform, it's way too complicated and totally useless for someone, that is just a basic operator/ user and wants or needs only just basic functions.

I'm telling you the world is becoming way to complicated for itself and in some cases, like this, unnecessary. There is a point as with all things, that simpler is better, why complicate things all the time? Life is stressful enough, why make it worse.... Just my blah, blah, blah for the day!
Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully I can figure it out...haha.
