Nothing special---in the morning especially, I like PG Tips (a strong English breakfast tea) with milk and sugar. For the afternoon, I keep some flavors in my desk drawer. Right now I have a box of Cinnamon Stick and a box of Caramel Creme. But it's been so busy today that I had another mug of PG Tips this afternoon to keep me alert! Must have been your wishing that things would pick up a little!

There is a way to do this, I just don't know how yet.
If your computer is up to it, there are thingies you can buy that allow you to patch your VHS player into your computer, record the movies with your computer, then burn them a DVD or edit them for YouTube.

[xmas365 beat me to this solution] If your computer isn't state-of-the-art or you're not very techy, various places will transfer VHS to DVD for a fee---here's where you can learn about Walgreen's service. Walmart and Costco can do it, too. Once they're on DVD, you should be able to rip the files to your computer, convert them to MP4 or whatever, and edit them into YouTube-sized pieces.

that time again, training the new girl on closing procedures. I prefer to work alone which is why I do the close shift. Plus we have the inspectors coming in tomorrow so we have to make extra careful about cleaning tonight, something I always do anyway but when training it is harder to get everything done.

Anyway, have a great night everyone!

Thanks for the information. If I can and it's not too costly I rather transfer it myself. I might try that route and if I can't do it I will have someone else do it for me. Can't wait to get it done! =)

It would be a great Christmas gift for your mother to transfer them to DVD.

Enjoy your time off until Wednesday! Hopefully you find some fun things to do or can relax with your time.

Have a good day!
