Well, Today was spent doing two things, changing Mae’s tire from a blow out she had last night and finally upgrading the memory in this. It had 256, the same as when it was new 6 years ago. I added 2 GB to it today and it wasn’t easy to find DDR/SDRAM even at Micro Center. In the 6 years that we’ve had this system, the only other thing that I have ever done to it was install a second hard drive, which gave it a combined 300GB hard drive. And although I admit that it is still no match for the new systems out there today, it’s still a tough little machine who like the energizer bunny keeps goin & goin & goin.

Although this laptop is brand new, the desktop is now 8 and showing signs of failing. It took 9 full DVDs to do a system back up the other night just in case it fails totally before I can replace it. The thing is, why is it that the computer companies don’t make a system that not only last more than a few years but can be  easily upgraded? The reason of course is greed. They know that by doing it this way we as the consumer will have to spend more and more money. Hey, lets face it, someone has to pay for all they’re vacation house’s, cars, trophy wives etc.

This design came to me last night as I was trying out some new design software. The software sucks, and I for one will stick with Print Shop but I predict that the design will be a best seller.

Well, we won’t be getting section 8, make to much  they said. We’re living paycheck to paycheck and we’re making to much, now that’s a laugh. They say that nothing happens without a reason, and earlier I got a call from Cliff asking how much 3,000 – 5,000 mouse pads and an equal amount of key chains would cost. Emailed him with the figures when we got home, were at the Leather Lips monument when he called. We’re talking  around a $5,000 profit if this would happen, but I am not holding my breath about for I know Cliff to well to count on what he says. 

2009 025 Before we went to see old Leather Lips, we went to Hayden Falls. First time I had been there since 89. For I had that damn brace on my leg at the time from that last bullet I took. It’s changed a lot. They now have decks built down in the gorge in front of the falls. Looking at now, I must have been nuts to have climbed it at the time with that brace on that went from my hip all the way down to my ankle. But I did it, drunk, without breaking my neck.

2009 018  Lastly, we topped it off with a stop at Pizza Hut. By the time we got there, everyone was hungry and I needed a beer or two.

2009 001 So that was a way to divert ones mind on a cold winters day. I know that the problems are still here, but as Juliet said, it just means that we have to concentrate on the goal at hand. With the section 8 denied, I more than ever have to make sure that I don’t fail in making all I want from the new business model work. And I can’t let anything get in the way of that goal so we can at least supplement our income.

Depending on your point of view


th_100_1232 Tonight is New Years eve, and this was taken a few hours ago. As you see, this could either be the last cook out of 2008 or the first of 2009. All I know is that I was damn cold doing it. But it was worth it, for after all, it’s New Years.

 

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!
