Aww, P.A.G, your post and pics made me smile. You sound like 'the fun auntie' and I'm sure your nieces will have some good memories.

Katie, I loved your daffodil story as well. Very sweet.

Woohoo! I didn't kill my laptop. It's working fine today.

After the hard drive died on my desktop computer on Tuesday, April fools, I went and spilt some akvavit on the touch pad of the laptop. Since I killed a laptop last year with a glass of wine (and the smart phone almost died when it hopped in the toilet), I knew not to tilt the computer. Turn it off and let it dry for 24 hours. Yeah, I think I will stop drinking booze near computers.

In just over 30 years of owning personal computers, last year was the first time I ever spilled on a computer or even damaged one.

So, yesterday I just hid by reading a good book. I checked my email, Discuss Cooking, and Facebook on my phone. It's just not the same.

I am now eager to get back to tax returns.

That was a close call, Taxy.

I have worked for companies that won't allow you to have a drink on your desk for just that reason. Fortunately, that has never happened to me at home even though I always have a cup nearby.

I am getting a new ignition electrical system for my scooter. The technician was just here and even he couldn't get it to turn on at first. Yea!

I'm doing a happy dance about the results of the Quebec election Monday.
