Here I am again!

Goodmorning everybody!

Well, here I am posting from the new computer. Sorry I let you down yesterday, but I just played around on it a bit and was quit "Done" after the Saturday. I took a day extra "vacation" .I don't think it went all so smoothly last Saturday with the uploading of several files and programs, but in the end Rob managed to do it. He isn't giving up easy, you know. It was a bit playing on the nerves to me, because he isn;t the most organized person when he does these things. I like to do it step by step, but he was downloading the stuff on his external HD from the old and at the same time was trying to make another partition on the new. I did find a description of it somewhere on internet, and made a copy of it on the old computer. Oh, if he only could wait to read it again, perhaps it saved a lot of time. But he right started with it on the new one and at first it didn'work as he wanted. For me it was already good enough but no, it had to be done better. We didn't use an external program for it, because it was said it could be done directly in Vista too. That is true, only you are limited somehow in the GB. Than another program didn;t work on Vista as we copied it from the old. Well, all that kind of things happened. Not good for my nerves, and then to keep yourself calm, is very tiring. To keep it short, he came at about 13.00 o'clock in the afternoon and we were finished at 21.30 o'clock in the evening!! With a break at about 18.00 o'clock for eating some sandwiches. PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!But for now I think all is there and hopefully all keeps working as it should.I must say it is wonderful to work on this computer.

How fast it is!!! I already noticed when I start internet. In tenth of seconds the starting page is there. And with my graphics program, Photofiltre it is amazing!!! First when I made a paper with some mask I easily could go to the kitchen and pour myself a coffee come back, take a cigaret and then sometimes still it wasn't there. Yesterday I tried it out, WOW, in a few seconds I have my paper. Is that a gain of time!!!So in general you could say I am VERY happy with it. Now just getting used to all the possibilities of Vista and knowing how and where to find it all. I will get used to it, slowly, in my own tempo!!

And yesterday Jan and I had our first anniversary! So quick the time past. We took a very easy day, first slept a bit longer, because we went late to bed Saturday night. Just after midnight Jan kissed me and congratulated me with our first year. I even didn't think of it at that time. Wasn't that sweet of him??? Then we just sat on the couch, watched a bit the Olympics in also had a long talk about all kind of things. So all by all I think we went to sleep at about 04.00 o'clock at night!!! Therefore we slept longer on the Sunday. In the afternoon we watched the clo sing ceremony of the Olympics. Marvellous! And I made us a small, but yummie dinner for our anniversiary. I made the big mushrooms, with extra ham and mozarella on it and with it a big roasted potatoe, when ready filled it with a lot of sour cream in which I put a lot of hatched chive and dille. Seems not much for a dinner, but it really fills your stomach!! And as dessert I had Tiramisu.

So that was my weekend. Now a new week started . I hope it will be without any computer problems, and with the computer working so fast I will perhaps be able to make some more kits than in the old situation. I'll have to, because with the kit from today leaving the stock, there is only one left there!

Oh, we have a closet where I keep all my stock of food. You know, packages of coffee, tings with soup or so, the pasta etc. Very handy, to have it all together and not all in the kitchen. But Friday afternoon I had to take something from there and suddenly heard a lot of noice. At first I startled, but then listened well and then I saw a littl mouse jumping from a shelf! Wow, I am not afraid of them but I don;t like to have them eating my stock! So now I leave the door open for a few days and already Dikkie Dik is doing his job. He is spending hours laying there, he must have smelled the mouse. I hope he catches it. Already it will help, if the cats are there, the mouse or may be mice, will smell the cats and hopefully will disappear.What kind of kit I have for you today? An American state! I told you already this week that I was busy with it. Here you have now Texas. I hope it will be useful for some of you.Well my friends, I wish you all a very nice day aand I will post the freebielist again today. If all will work well with the computer of course. Bye, bye.

We had a mouse just last week again. We catch them in a little metal box with some peanut butter, it has an angled opening that they can go in but not come out. Then we take them to a field and let them go. Far away, so they don't find their way back here!

Hey, just popping my head in from my parents' house to say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Congratulations to you both.

Thanks for the Texas kit--we lived there when I was in high school, and at SOME point I'm going to locate those photos!!
