COMPUTER ALZHEIMER'S

When you don't want to blog and your computer is acting nicely you don't fret about the future. When you want to change your blog photo and post a blog with pictures and your computer--or Blogger, but I tend to vote for the computer--won't let you then you are frustrated.

I have to come to Phil's site/home/whateverthisis, because on mine I can't even pull up a web page, not even Google. Now we do have a new computer, sitting in the box but how two computer duffuses--would that be duffi?--are going to get it up and running I don't know. And, how will I retrieve my favorites/bookmarks? I will lose my people, my "I will buy this when I have money" sites, etc. In fact, how will I continue to breathe in and out w/out my memory? I have computer Alzheimer's .

Bah.

lol, I feel your pain.
I'm not a total computer duff, but it can be challenging.
Do you have any friends with teenagers who might be in the know?
If not, maybe hire a free-lance computer geek who will come to your house.
You CAN save all your bookmarks/favorites/pics to disk and then transfer them to the new computer. Just google the steps, or better yet, but a beginner's computer book!
Good luck!

It is a love/hate relationship with computers isn't it??

At least you didn't loose your cell phone with all the cute pictures of your cute brand fresh baby from the Hospital on it.

BAH.

You'll be OK with your new computer, just as long as you admit you are a website hoarder.

You haven't been blogging, my love! Was just checking before stumbling to bed. Lots of love.
