Good News

Good news from my son-in-law, who has emailed me that he's been checking out my computer situation, and, while he is still working on the final answer, he has also discovered that my machine can take higher temperatures than we thought, so I can probably keep it on considerably longer than I thought before it goes. Better than shutting it down and starting it up again so often. So maybe I won't be so time restricted as I had thought.
...........................................


Here's an email I received today. thought it was pretty funny.


You Gotta Love the Jersey Shore

Watch the gull do this!
This gull walks into a store in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.









He has developed the habit of stealing Doritos from a neighborhood convenience store. The seagull waits until the manager isn't looking, then walks in and steals a bag of Doritos. Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds. The shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store and helped himself. Since then he's become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

The manager thinks it's great, because people come to watch the thief make the daily grab. That's good for business, and customers have begun paying for the seagull's stolen bags because they think it's so funny. However, the manager did say, "This is New Jersey, and if that seagull starts to grab a 6-pack of 'Bud' to go along with the Doritos, I may have to put a stop to it."



Oh, this is disappointing. The original has a mini-video of the bird, but I can't make it move on the blog, so I just gave you a couple of pictures.

I'm glad that you're getting your computer fixed...it can be so annoying. I think I saw a video of this little guy somewhere. I guess we can't call them all 'bird brains'.. Michelle

Good news about computer and I just remembered once we had a problem with overheating. Actually the problem was something worse but the salesperson sold us this device you put under the computer which I guess has a fan or something in it to keep the computer cooler. However we never used it and Eliot gave it away. I don't know why we didn't try it probably because we were at the time always moving and it was one more thing to put away.
