I am just fine and thanks for caring Luna. If you were on FB, you would know I am alive and well and....fighting with new computer issues.
I keep blaming Windows 10, when actually it's PEBCAC. (Problem exists between chair and computer).
I've had to sign-in to every thing I use, including this blog. New computer, new operating system, thinks that I am brand new too. Which can get a bit frustrating because, the last time I signed in was 4 years ago and I have since forgotten my password. HAH!
Then, there were a few files missing--files that didn't get transferred onto the new hard-drive. Picture files, that I almost panicked when I couldn't find them.
I took the new baby back in yesterday to have all this corrected and now, I have everything I want and need. I think. Thankfully, they keep my old hard drive for 3 months, just in case.
I got the machine back, but didn't start plugging all the peripherals into it until midnight. When I got up this morning and my printer was off-line and no amount of searching on how to get it back on-line helped. I called my computer people.
After 20 minutes of them remotely trying to fix the problem, she asked, "It looks like the printer isn't plugged in."
"Oh, sure it is. I did it last night."
"Can you look to make sure?"
I checked all the wires, they were plugged in to the right places.
"Everything is plugged in."
"Is your printer plugged into a USB port?"
"Can you check to make sure it's plugged in all the way?"
I'm thinking, 'well Duh. Of course it is.'
When I touched it, it fell out of the USB port. I shoved it into another port and..............I hadn't plugged it in tight enough!
She said, "Oh, I hear the printer starting up. You solved the problem!" Soon a test page came printing out.
"I KNOW what the problem was and I don't think I can solve it! The problem is the computer operator!"
I was so determined NOT to get Windows 10 until I had too and knowing full well it was going to cause me all sorts of problems, I was already biased against it. If anything went wrong, I assumed. You know what assumed gets ya--right?
So, I have been centered in on this new computer that I have not even given a thought about posting on my blog. GEEZ LOUISE!
All else has been calm and boring and every day. I hope to get a hair cut and some groceries tomorrow, plus pay the rest of the month's bills.
Thursday I am cleaning this house--because I have dust all over everything, alone with cat fur and stuff I have laid on the counter, to put away later. BECAUSE--on Friday, one of my blog buddies is coming from South Carolina near here and she wanted to stop in.
I am soooooooo looking forward to the visit, but you know, kind of nervous. She has a beautiful home and family and here I am, just an old country plow-girl living in a trailer.
Karen baby-sat Della this past week-end and let her do anything she wanted. Including unrolling the bathroom tissue roll. HAH!
