Yes I am back.
My computer died a week ago. I have known for a while it was going to happen. I was saving my money and hoping I would have a bit more time. It died anyway.
I rely on the computer for so many things. I get my news from multiple sources and can review it at my leisure. This way I can see several views of current events without having to sit through the dronings of televised news.
My computer helps me check up on my family and friends. I like to know they are doing well without bothering them every day. And they can do the same for me.
I learn a great many things online. If a question pops into my mind I do a search for the answer. If I cannot remember who sang a certain song I do a search. If I want to tour an Irish pub I can do it.
I have missed reading blogs that interest me. Some of you are entertaining, some inspire me, some are educational. Most are a combination of all three.
When I realized that the computer was finally going I rushed to leave a message here. I know I wonder if the author of a blog I read is okay when I do not see a new post in a while,
Then my son began looking for a good computer. He keeps up with all the technology stuff that I really am not interested in. I count on him to get me the best for my buck.
He cane across a refurbished computer that is normally quite expensive. It only cost $250.00. It is very nice.
It is a normal laptop computer. Unlike my lasrone (which I paid a lot more for) it is not all plastic. This one is metal and much heavier. It has a spill protection. I learned my lesson the hard way many years ago. I never have liquid close enough to spill on the keyboead. But should it ever happen this one allows the liquid to drain right through.
I had seveal keys on my old computer that did not work right. The number 7 was sticky. The numer one or exclamation point did not always work. Same with the letter C. J and X had to be played with to make them register. Now I can just type away with my fingers being the only ptoblem.
I have not been able to read so many posts. I will go back and read them all. But I will only comment on the latest for each one. Otherwise It will take me into next month.
It is good to be home.
