Luvs, I'll take that toast - can it be really sour sourdough with butter? yummm!
And, how about making it into a sandwich with bacon and avocado too?

Here's the message sushi - I'm guessing you're at church and left your computer on...

My computer was being a real pain last night! I tried to take the photos from my new camera (have had it about 3 weeks) and put them onto the computer (have had it about 2 months). I've done this process 3 or 4 times now, without problem. But this time, it not only infected/killed the photos, the computer had a hissy fit and wouldn't do anything. I tried to click on this thing called "big fix" that's in the computer, but when it tried to get onto the internet, AOL wouldn't open and said that if I clicked here or there, it would install the AOL for me...even though I've had AOL all this time....

In a nutshell: Too many grey boxes popped up saying I was doomed.

help?

Sure - I like earthquakes, so long as there's no big damage. It was weird - I heard a tiny pre-shock first (the sliding glass door rattled quickly) but I thought it was the dog (she sleeps with her head against it, probably wishing she was outside chasing the kitties) and then about a minute or two later KA-BOOM! I don't know where the epicenter was, and the news doesn't have anything, so it may have been a tiny one. Felt like maybe a 3.0 to 3.4 here.

Sushi - the message is above, re: the computer flare-up.


I'll let you guys know if I find out where the quake was centered. Hope nobody is hurt! I'm particularly worried about the folks in Malibu - their houses keep sliding down the hills.

Ok.... this is what you do Jkath. Go out..... buy a new computer. Just kidding. You might have a virus on your computer. Do you have anti-virus / anti-spyware / anti-malware? I think the 3 best are MaCaffee, Spybot v1.4 and Adaware.

Then again, what happened might have been a fluke. Did you reboot the computer? How is it operating now? There are so many questions to ask you. Its somewhat difficult to know what happened. It could be that your camera isnt operating properly..... it could be a conflicting software issue, or it could be a hardware issue. I hate to be so general, but its difficult to assess.

I found out the earthquake was 20 miles south of Palm Springs, (about 1-1/2 hours from me) and it was a 5.5 with no injuries. Whew!

I heard a cute joke this morning:

Q - What do you call a stalk of celery that is blushing?

A. - Rhubarb
