For those who read the previous post, I had to try 4 CD walkmen before I found one that worked! I gave up on the first store after returning two that didn't work. I went to another store, spent more money for a supposedly better brand and it didn't work either! So I returned it to the second store and after fiddling with it, they agreed it was no good. So they gave me another one just like it. WHOO HOO! It works! And even though I knocked it on the floor when I was on the treadmill, it still works! I've now taken precautions to insure that I won't knock it on the floor again!

I think I've mastered the basics of my basic cell phone. There are still a couple of aggravating things that occur. I keep unintentionally disconnecting calls when I remove the phone from its holster. I must be inadvertently pushing something as I remove it. I've missed an opportunity to work by that means! Also, the phone names and numbers in my speed dial have disappeared a time or two. I have no idea why. I've put them back in and so far they are still there--the last time I checked. But I can at least make calls and receive calls--most of the time.

As for scanning to my computer, my daughter helped me figure that out. Come to find out, it was set up all along. It was just "operator error", the operator being me. So now I can scan and email documents.

I am still living with my one-channel malfunction on the t.v. set. Someone suggested call the cable provider and see if they can assist me with it. So far I'm just living with the aberration of playing the channel through the VCR.

This morning my computer went on the "fritz". I couldn't even re-start it or shut it off. But when I was finally able to re-start it that seemed to cure the problem. It seems to be okay now. I've been having some difficulty with it ever since I got set up for Face Book. I don't know if that's the problem or not.


I've already explained about the scanning project. So that's one project completed.

Pictures in picture frames--well, that's going to have to wait awhile. I'm not motivated.

I received some guidance today from a friend and I'm now ready to set up my bookkeeping system to track outgo versus income. I'll get serious about that in a day or so.

I've about completed another project that I didn't even list in a previous post. I have sorted through all my music and picture CDs and have organized them in my CD tower. And in the process of sorting through them, I have listened to each one. I now have (or will have soon when I complete the project) a usable set of music and picture CDs.

That's enough for this Post. I should have taken some pictures of our foot and a half snowfall of a couple of days ago but I didn't think of it. Maybe I can take some and post later. I am thankful to neighbors who cleaned out my driveway so I could get out.

Maybe the above information somewhat explains--but doesn't excuse--why I have neglected some of my email communication with friends. That, and spending too much time trying to figure out all the nuances of Face Book! I was warned by my friend who set it up for me that it is addictive!

Oh yes, facebook is VERY addictive. Miss you Jim and the snow as well. Though life here in the dessert is certainly nice. =)
