I'll probably get everything working the way I want it when I don't need QuickBooks® or my professional tax software. Then I can dump MS and switch to Linux. Of course, there will be a learning curve with that too.

Okay, I am a huge fan of Gordon, but my honest opinion on his biography is that he came across slightly whiny. That said, it did give a lot of background information that was very interesting. If you are a real fan and want to know his background then it's worth reading. If you only have a passing interest - probably not.
Thanks for that Katy...I am a real fan and would love to know about his background and childhood etc

Has he only the one out do you know?

Admit it taxy, you'll "probably get everything working the way I want it" right before they come out with Windows 9.

I will probably get everything working more or less the way I want it. There is too much built in stupid in Windog for me to be completely happy with it.

Someone local just opened a cupcake shop with other baked goods next door to work, that was lunch. It was a chocolate cupcake filled with ganache and topped with peanut butter frosting. It was excellent! I'm pretty sure that she uses swiss meringue buttercream, because it was very fluffy and not overly sweet.

So eating a delicious cupcake is what I'm doing!

I want Bakechef's lunch.

Just got back from the vet with Beagle, for routine vaccinations, she has a big lump on her chest which I thought might be a lypoma (fatty, noncancerous tumor). The new intern thought, after needle aspiration, that it might be a round cell tumor, which may or may not be cancerous, and recommended removal. I'm going to get a second opinion.

(((Hugs))) to you and Beagle. The vet didn't suggest a biopsy? Or would a biopsy be as much stress on Beagle as removing the tumour?

Thanks Taxy. Yes, I wondered about a biopsy too. They did a needle aspiration, and it was inconclusive. I do want to talk to our usual vet, this was a new graduate.

Geez Dawg, I hope everything works out OK for you and Beagle. If you need to go away to recuperate you guys can always go rest here:



I saw a story about this place, Dog Bark Park Inn | Dog Folk Art Chainsaw Gallery | Cottonwood Idaho USA on the news and though of you right away!

PS ~ I want bakechef's lunch too.
