I have been waiting a long time but now I have a sofa and a double recline. Bring on the company! This isn’t House Beautiful, but it is certainly Living Room Comfortable!

Sorry this is late. I had to photoshop vacuum the floor. With fibro and hubby’s bad shoulders, and brother working nearly all the time the real task doesn’t get done like it used to.

I didn’t find a place on my computer that I could crop photos. I messed with trying to get this out last night at midnight but the computer was frozen and I couldn’t do anything on my phone or tablet to fix the photo. Remember when everything was on these gadgets and if not you knew how to find them? I HATE windows 10!!!! Bring back files _I_ make! Organization was so much easier back in the day. Remember Commadore 64, and right around then before they made all these “Improvements”? Gosh, I miss those earlier processors that I could control!

I’m so sorry this turned into a rant but it is better than throwing my computer through a window!

But I am grateful for Living Room Improvements!

Battery Woes


I have had my computer a little while. Maybe a couple years? It’s an HP Notebook.
Remind me not to get HP again. From the beginning, the thing heated up so much there was no such thing as putting it on my lap. And the battery wouldn’t hold a charge so we had to go back to the store to get another battery and adapter. Still, it didn’t hold a charge. I’ve always had to keep it plugged in. Could never get far from the outlet, like you’re supposed to with laptops. And NOW it is shutting off when you least expect it.

This put a damper on my day. I’m so far behind on everything because I had to take the time and order new battery and adapter. Why isn’t it easy? I couldn’t find anywhere on the computer where the information of what is needed could be found. Remember in the old days when we ran them on the cover wagons, that you could hover over the icon of the computer and find out everything you needed to know? No. Information. Anywhere! Finally, I shut it down and looked on the back and wrote all those codes down. Remember in those same covered wagon days when we could read those little squiggles? I had to get my trusty cell phone lighted magnifying app to read it all. Thank you, Joey, for your cute blog about that!

Then I go to HP site and off course they only expect you to have a computer for a year because all the info on my computer is long gone. Remember, covered wagonie times when thing could be expected to last at least a little while? If not, you knew it came from Japan or China or Taiwan. But we bought this thinking HP was a pretty reliable name. Yeah, sure. Of course, I know nothing is made here anymore and the plan is to keep a consumer consuming. But out here in the country, there are still covered wagons.

Fade to credits music plays Little House On The Prairie…

Sorry. Just needed to rant. We’ll see if the new battery and adapter will work. They aren’t cheap! Oh, and Kali jumped into my lap as I was writing and–yep had to restart this darned machine. Luckily, WordPress saved it! So I can’t blame them if this is a run-on rant. What laptop should I save up for? I have a tablet but I really need the big screen. I do want it to be light-weight. Who am I kidding? I just need new glasses so I can see.
