The death of a companion…. or is a dead computer like being naked in public?

March 29, 2021


The day before yesterday I was quietly digging through the news for items of interest when I heard a sound I later realized was the last gasp of a dying computer and just like that my computer screen went black. I franticly checked to see if it might be the circuit breaker or even a power outage, (Texas has been known to loose power once in a while), but no there was power throughout the house.

So after 14 years my faithful servant was dead, now to figure out what to do. Obviously by the nature of this blog I found a quick fix, though getting it back to where I was with my old computer, (like right now I have no access to photographs), may take a while and during this time I ask your patience. I know I have been very lax in my current postings but I can only state the facts and they are that right now I am sliding down a tunnel of depression and for the most part just do not want to do anything.

That said first off this new WordPress interface sucks! then again maybe I am just old and can not deal with change but either way I want to leave you with this thought….

If our allies around the world

watched the Presidents press conference

they must surely be loosing confidence

in his ability

to lead the free world

and our enemy’s

are realizing they can now

do what they want

without too much fear of reprisal.

      Yes it has stood the test of time and exposure to extreme elements, (like when I visited my family during Christmas the cabin often reached -20 for days at a time) still a lot of important stuff on it including my April fools day blog posting

    “Our enemies are realizing they can do what they want.”…let me add with the aid & cooperation of our own socialist government.

    I too hate the forced “block” interface with wordpress. Thinking of designing my own website and moving on this platform, but other projects are a bigger concern. Sorry about your computer of 14 years. Mine is 7 and barely holding together.
