Computer screen died, new computer today, no time for anything else.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Well, my old computer gave up the ghost. I bought a very inexpensive lenovo from Fry's. It is so different from my old computer. For one thing it has windows 8 installed. Also, I can't get used to the touch pad on this. I'm constantly being brought back to the windows 8 tile page. It's driving me crazy!

One cool thing however, is that it has a voice recognition program. I can operate most of the computers functions using voice only. The only trouble is, I'm having a heck of a time learning the in's and outs of it all. This has resulted in me spending hours trying to figure it all out, taking away any time I have to do anything else.

Consequently, I did not record my food at all today. I also didn't do anything to earn points except spin the wheel for logging in. And now it is my bedtime. As soon as I get used to this and know more what I'm doing I will get back on track. More then!

    First I want to say Hi, it has been a long time since I had seen you. I was going through my friend's list and saw your smiling face and had to drop in to say hello. What a blessing to be able to sing, I used to be able to just be a fair singer, but post polio syndrome took that away too. I have had my problems but God has gotten me through them. Working on more right now, but I keep remembering my favorite verse in the Bible Phil. 4:13. OK, I need to read the rest of my mail and check on a few more familiar faces. Sending lots of love & hugs, Betty emoticon
    P.S. for got one reason I wrote. I need a new computer, but with my aging mind those new things sound like they would throw me for a loop! (where did that saying come from?)

    I do not like touch screens! Telling my age maybe, LOL. I know what you mean about getting used to a new computer though. I'm sure you will get it figured out in no time and be back to your routine.

    Of all the things I miss from the Bay area, Frys might be the most.

    Enjoy your new toy. emoticon
