Technical difficulties

The power cord on my laptop seems to be going. When booting up, the picture does not show up unless you wiggle the cord, you can hear it starting, just no picture. I ordered a new cord from that wonderful place that has everything, Amazon. I do hope that is the problem and that all will be solved and happy again as soon as the new cord shows up on my doorstep. I bought this little laptop off of eBay about three years ago. It is an older one that had been refurbished. It has been a great computer, till now. I guess I can't complain for about $350.00.

Have any of you ever gotten those emails that start - You know you live in the north when... or - You know you are a southerner when...
Well this is not from an email I have gotten, these are real actual truths about my town.

You know you live in a small town when...
Your mailman is also the mayor,
and the substitute mailman is the chief of police!

Someone walks down the street and you say - "Who is that?"
"Seriously, Who is that? Must be a visitor!"

You go into the Post office to mail a package and you end up standing there talking to the postal lady about the latest episode of "Survivor" for 10 min!

The owner of the local gas station actually tells you not to buy gas today because she is lowering the price tomorrow!

We had our first snow of the season! Just a dusting but snow! North east of us got about 15".
When I changed the sheets on the bed I put on the flannel ones and an extra blanket.
It was really nasty out yesterday (Tues.) 27 mph. winds rain, and snow. I am sooo not ready for this!

I have been real slow with my reading this week but I am reading a great book! "Confessions of a Contractor" by Richard Murphy. It is very funny! It is about a building contractor in L.A. and the relationships he has with his clients and the different jobs he has. This is not a true story, just a novel, but the Author was (or is) a contractor so makes you wonder...

Laundry is definitely the chore you get behind in the most. On the bright side, I am not the only one! On the down side - there are an awful lot of piles of laundry waiting to be done out there! Get to work!

The music site that I download from is also having Tech. difficulties!!!! So no new song this week.
