Smile

This bird looks like it's on the brink of having a mental breakdown. I didn't know birds were capable of showing this much emotion in facial expression. http://redd.it/byq9n3, via Image Gallery for Reddit

Another Windows 10 Problem and a Funny Video from Colin Hathawy

I'm beginning to think that Microsoft wants us to move to some other operating system.  Just too many problems with windows.  I'm heeding their desires and have moved most operations to my Mac Mini.

Worse Than the Lottery

During our early years together, Donna and I lived in a condo right above a couple of elderly sisters. Almost every day we noticed they had left several letters for outgoing mail to television evangelists. We surmised it was donations. It almost seemed to be a hobby.

This article fully describes the success of these crooks to obtain money from the elderly and poor.

What?

These photos are examples of strange things seen in the Park.  How is an RV gonna hook up their sewer hose to this?  Will this plant cause damage when it falls?

Make Your Old Laptop Run Fast

The price of SSDs (solid state drive) is getting lower all the time.  Maybe it’s time to replace that slow HD and make your laptop fast!  Here’s a short article on current costs.  I’ve put SSDs in all my PCs and they are much faster.  See me next season for a training session.

A New Style RV Park in California


Let's Go Blues!

We watched the St. Louis Blues NHL team win tonight and make it to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 49 years!!  Let's go blues!

We attended our first hockey game (St. Louis Blues) on our third date (1979).  Donna become so much of a fan (I liked it too!) that we became season ticket holders.  Those days at the old Arena were some of the most exciting games we've ever seen.  Brett Hull, Brian Sutter (a seriously good hockey player),  Mike Liut (a seriously good goalie) were some of our favorites.

Hockey is without a doubt the BEST spectator sport!  Let's Go Blues!!

Congratulations to the Sheard Family

This morning Donna and I sprayed weeds at each home on our list.  The ONLY property that had NO weeds was the home of Mark and Paula Sheard!  Congratulations!  Just remember - this honor will be short-lived.  Enjoy it while you can.
