The best way to get the phone to ring, as you wait for a call, or the doorbell to ring, as you wait for a guest, is to go in the bathroom. As I now wait for someone to post something, that is what I shall do, and I know when I return a post will be made. lol

Love the pic of Cooper! You should hire him out as a model!

Caught up on the posts and emails, just puttering around FB playing games and entertaining myself. Thinking about the logic of purchasing a second Kindle for my girls to use. They are reading some of the books I've recently read. I like to encourage reading, but a second Kindle might be too much $.
Alix, I downloaded the Kindle app onto my netbook and can purchase and read anything you get on your actual kindle. And the app is free! Might even be one for smart phones.

Yes there is. I have a Kindle app on my PC, laptop, iPad and iPhone. I also have a Kindle!

I told Cooper he has his own fan club. He asked if you wanted him to model a swim suit! :O

Trying to get the upgraded ReminderFox to work. I'd gladly go back to an earlier version if it were available. Why is it that upgrades very often screw up what worked fine before?

Because, as I know and anyone that's done programming knows....first you have to program some bugs into the program before they hire you to 'debug' the program. Job security. It's wrong, but, it is what happens.

I think Cooper would look adorable in a swimsuit!

I'm dehydrating a few more tomatoes, trying to figure out what to do with all the cukes and green beans, and cooking up some corn soup with the leftover ears. Been cleaning up the house for the cleaning lady who comes tomorrow.

At four a.m. I decided to change the bag on the vacuum. Mistake #1.

Kept bending over to try and get the job done Mistake #2.

Became very ill, started to dry heave, ignored it, kept trying. Mistake #3.

I finally stopped and called Son #1. He finished doing the vacuum for me. Good decision. (Maybe) He laughed at my stupity.

By then the pattern had been set. Continued to dry heave. I don't mind it, but I get concerned about the strain on my heart. Oddly enough, I don't get any chest pains. I finally took a meclazine. It made me very sleepy. Woke up around 4 p.m. Phone call from a friend I hear from only a couple of times a year. Glad she called or I would still be sleeping.

Feeling much better. Now I have to find something to eat. Soft scrambled eggs sounds good right now.

Kinda like those "helpful" programs that scan your computer and list a bunch of errors that aren't there so you'll buy their program?

I just wish they'd debug before they change my program, especially when they don't give you the option of keeping the older version, but I guess that's how they get the bugs show up.

Does anyone have a good reminder program to suggest?
