Waiting for Mr "I want oatmeal first thing tomorrow" to wake up. Guess I'll go for my morning walk first.

Sitting her thinking about getting dressed. I am out of unsalted butter, shocking to anyone that knows me So a run to Bj's Club to get butter and dishwasher detergent, probably other things as well.

Then maybe come home and shampoo the carpets.

Darn technology.
Files are often stored in pieces in different parts of the hard drive. It sounds like one or more pieces is/are corrupt, so parts of the file can be read but the entire file can't be put together and displayed.

I have a program called PC Inspector File Recovery that does a good job of fixing corrupt files.

Thanks, GG. I may have to look into that.
I always save my docs and pics and move them from one pc to a new one, so somewhere along the way something happened to a bunch of files that were in MS Word.

Just wandered the farmers market to kill some time. While surrounded by all of those fresh fruits and vegetables I ate a slice of bee sting cake from the German bakery stall. Sounds about right for me...

Planes, planes, and way too much automobiles. Two one hour flights, and 4+ hours in a car yesterday. Niece is getting married sometime today. We had the rehearsal dinner last night, 12 courses! The food and wine just kept coming.

It's nice to see family. I think.

Are you really seeing them or do you have wine-colored glasses on? Have fun!

I'm waiting for a delivery from the pharmacy. They are bringing prescriptions, a few groceries, and Gas-X. I'm too uncomfortable to leave the house and I was supposed to go for Chinese food with friends tonight.

Cruising along DC and other websites while I wait for the washer to get done with a load. Want to flip the laundry over into the dryer before I head out the door to grocery shop. Never made it out of here yesterday, and I HAVE to be back before 6:30 to get ready to listen to a baseball game online and watch TheOSU football game on FOX. They're broadcasting it up here!

I hate when I get trapped gas. I feel like I have a hot metal rod in the middle of my tummy. But when it decides to break loose, it REALLY breaks loose. I am so glad I live alone at that time. And so are lots of other folks.
