Well I am having computer problems. My computer was dead when we came back from vacation (the battery was drained even though it was off). I replaced that battery and it won't charge and slowly drained. I returned that one for an exchange and have the same problem this time I am taking out the battery when I turn the computer off. Power supply won't power the computer unless the battery is in it. I went looking for another laptop yesterday but was disgusted by the computers and left empty handed (well, did buy an external hard drive so I can back up my computer). So my plan is to make sure I have all my files off my lap top, and I will start to configure my wife's old lap top (I bought her a new one as she was starting to have problems with hers but at least it wasn't dying). I may be slower on my posts till I can get a new computer and I am hoping to be able to wait until black Friday.....we shall see.

Darn Post office. The records I mailed from Arvada last week arrived at the PO on Saturday but they did not leave me a notice. I went in and asked today If I had received any packages and it was, "Oh, you have 2 big boxes." I was getting nervous that my records I mailed to myself were lost.

I think I need a vacation to recover from my vacation. We flew to Colorado for a week (high school reunion and parents 50th wedding anniversary). I managed to see an old acquaintance and picked up some 45's (thanks Cliff). I rounded out the trip with 45's and lp's from antique stores and record stores. The old record shops just weren't the same, especially in Boulder which was down right atrocious. Had to ship them back home so needless to say I am still waiting for them.
