Bummer Zhizara. Are you using the paid version of McAfee? Shouldn't it protect you from stuff like that?

I was pretty slack, too, which is why I was so happy to find a good automatic, online service.

Why do you have to use a Canadian service? Are there any?

We got DH's MRI results from his flip-flop stairs mishap, he has a torn meniscus, but nothing broken. He has an appointment with a surgeon in May.

I went ahead and got a little Aroma rice cooker, super cheap from Amazon, and was anxious to try it. Wouldn't you know, I'm almost out of rice. Cooked up the half cup of rice that I found, and the machine did a great job even though the directions were for 3/4 cup of rice, and I had to guess at the water amount.

Because I have client data on my computer. Yes, it's encrypted. It could be in a country other than Canada, but they would have to have very strict laws about releasing data.

I looked into finding a Canadian site a while back. I don't remember what the problem was. Maybe they were outrageously expensive. I should check again. Thanks for the nudge. Maybe they had all their servers in one place.

Waiting for the tater tots to cook so I can try the meatloaf Shrek made with burger and hot Italian sausage.

I received a bottle of Lilac parfum and have it spritzed on my wrists...loving the the memories that are coming back.

Thanks, Taxy. I thought so too. Right now, everything works except the System Recovery. I think I'll just keep my fingers crossed that I won't need to use it.

Today was my big shopping day for the month. I got a gorgeous Porterhouse steak. I'm not all that hungry, so I divided it into a strip steak and a pretty filet.

I'm really just tired from all the shopping. I did get everything put away and stored properly. I crashed and had a good nap. I think I'll just have the other half of a liverwurst sandwich and tackle all the new goodies tomorrow.

Got a new book from the library, another Cheese Shop Mystery. I plan on settling down with the book, a bit of wine, and a half-bagel (multi-grain) toasted and schmeared with cream cheese that has walnut bits and honey mixed in. Better get busy mixing my cream cheese, huh?

Dawg, good to hear that Mr. Dawg has an appt. soon, and that nothing is broken. Ouch, it hurts just to think about it.

CG, that sounds like my kind of evening, in fact, that's what I'm headed for now....a snack and a bit of wine, and the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy.

Princess....Shrek made a meatloaf? I'm looking forward to hearing about this!

Good night, everyone. It's only 10PM here right now, but I am beat after a long day.

Yes! It was quite good, he didn't mess with spices or weird ingredients. Just a straight up meatloaf, I enjoyed it.

Over spicing and adding in things I've told him I don't like, usually ruins a meal for me.

I'm listening to baseball! In spite of raining out in Oakland all day and then some, the clouds parted and the sun came out about an hour before the game started. That's because I've heard it mentioned that baseball is the only game created by God. Hope he's an Indians fan.

Hmmm I thought it was Noah.
