If my mom saw that, she'd wash my mouth out with soap, "And don't think you're too old for me to do it, either!" She very would be able to, as I'm presently in Montana visiting with my mom and dad with my sister.
No pictures. Would anyone read a blog entry without pictures? Believe me, I tried to post pictures. I have great ones...and several posts I have written in my head....with pictures. But, while this computer is 2 years younger than my own, it is slower than molasses in January. My parents do minimal computer work and while my dad has a digital camera, he doesn't use it.
So...there's no picture editing program. I downloaded Picasa and tried to manipulate my photos into websize. I thought it had it, until I went to load it into the post here and it was WAY too big. So...I went back and tried to clean up the computer. I tried to figure out why is sounds like a pop-corn popper in the background (what ARE all those processes running anyway?). Zilch. Zip. Nada.
Yesterday, my sister, my niece and I went to Havre to see the land claims my great-grandmother proved. We have a photo of her in front of her shack, and while my niece worked in an attorney's office (who didn't have enough work for her) she looked up the tracts. It was pretty neat, but left more questions than before we visited.
The first thing which happened when I stepped through the door was "LIS! The task bar is in the wrong place?!!!!" (that was my father). "LISA! I can't play my games or click on my animal rescue sites! The cursor keeps on doing strange things!!!!!" (that's my mother). Now mind you, it was already 10:30 pm.
So, I loaded a new anti-virus, ran some scans, deleted a whole bunch of stuff, emptied the recycle bin...I need to clear out the temporary files...and I did a defrag. It works a little bit better, but I've given up on loading pictures. I have, however, fixed the cursor and moved the taskbar.
So, tell me. Does anyone read blog posts without pictures?
