This is my heart home.  I may live in this other place, but ND it my heart and soul.

I saw this and giggled for 10 minutes.

    I was grocery shopping today and a fellow shopper stopped and gave me a coupon for $10 off my grocery purchase.  So nice!

    My bump so far today is that there have been no potholes.

    Monday: At my semi-annual check-up with my retinal specialist for the torn retina in my right eye, the doctor determined that I now also have a "macular pucker" in that eye.

    Tuesday: My primary home PC blew a circuit and now is completely dead -- not even a beep or a flicker of light when I cycle the power.

    Wednesday: ?....  ::)

    It sounds like a power supply. They're not expensive and very easy to replace so Tuesday may not have been as bad as you think.

    It's a notebook PC, so may be a bit more of a challenge than going into a desktop case, but I'll probably be diving into it later this week. Absolute worst case will hopefully be that I can at least salvage the hard drive so that I can get all the latest data and not have to depend on month-old backups.  ::)

    LOL!  That's either TMI (been working out at the gym?), or a typo....

    Typo, and corrected. It's getting late and I'm drifted a bit.

    Isn't there a Kindleboards rule that you're not allowed to correct typos if they were funny?  :D

    That's what quotes are for, to capture the embarrassment fore'er.

    If the British navy had had sailors who looked like that, they would have needed a lot fewer press gangs. ;)

    She's had other pictures up that were even better!

    And Sailor, HOW did you get that quote after the fact?   Or did you just doctor the new version?   :D

    Can you email it to yourself, and then post it from the computer?  (Of course your phone is probably not an ancient model like mine, but that's what I have to do.)

    Today for the first time, two strangers asked about my kindle!!!!!  I was in the waiting room at an urgent care when no sooner than I had my kindle awake big burly guy says excuse me is that a book.  I've been waiting for this since February.  So I got to spend the wait telling him and his buddy all about kindle.  They were sold with very few details, (but I kept going).  big guy is buying DX for his college student, and his buddy is buying 2 or 3 for him, wife and stepson.  I was so excited that as I drove away I thought of a few more things I hadn't covered, and almost turned around to go back.  I figured that would be creepy though.  And of course I told them to check out KB's for advice, discounts etc...

    I quoted Ed from what I remember him saying.  The typo did stick a picture in my mind.   ::)
