Things on my mind

I spent two hours straight making this bracelet. It has been a long time since I was so focused and immersed in a project. I did not bring the beads it took to make this bracelet so I have been working with Peggy's beads. Thus Peggy's bracelet!
Other things get put aside when I am having this kind of fun so gaps in the blog are now accounted for.

I have had two instances where people have not turned on their computer for a year. They either were not big computer users to begin with or have switched to their phones for all. The problem with doing that is that they do not function correctly until updates and maintenance have been completed. Turning it on for a few minutes for a specific reason can end up taking hours or not work at all. I remember when I worked on a friends computer she found in the back of a closet while moving. It took a week to get it updated and that was leaving it on all the time and shutting it down and restarting it frequently. If you have a computer that you do not use the old adage 'use it or lose it' comes to mind. You would benefit from selling it or donating it if years will pass before turning it on again. 

I recently read a good article about backing up your computer to an external or internal hard drive and being able to easily choose what is backed up and how often. Let me know if you would like to see the article and I will email it to you.

The propane guy stopped by to see if we needed any propane. It was still on half full but I had him top it off. He said business has been really slow due to the warm weather. He also wished me Happy New Year and said please do not drink and drive. You must leave that to the professionals! Gladly!!

Just finished our walk. Butch, Peggy and I have a reputation in the park as the walkers. You can set your watch by us. 10:00 and 4:00. Our route is 1.2 miles and we times it by two. It is not good for weight loss but is perfect to keep all systems working. Staying healthy in the warmth of deep south Texas!
