I can finally see the night sky.
This is the first clear night we've had in a long time. There's a moon out, and it's good to see stars again. It's still cold and windy, but at least the rain isn't pouring down.
The UPS guy called me and told me he left a package at the gate. I walked down to get it, and it was Omaha Steaks , which is nice. Unfortunately, the FEDEX guy had left a can of ammo for me down there too, and I had to carry both of the boxes up. The Styrofoam container for the steaks was big and bulky, while the ammo was heavy. I barely made it back up to the house. I didn't drive down because I thought I needed the exercise and it wasn't raining. I certainly got what I asked for.
My computer "blew up" and shut itself down today. I went through the whole drill of starting in safe mode, then restoring the system files from a restore point, and it seems to be working ok now. I guess I am going to have to buy a new computer. They are cheap these days and buying a new one isn't the issue. It's trying to get all the correct drivers and niche programs I use on a new computer. I dread it.
A friend sent me a book, which came in the mail yesterday. I finished it a few minutes ago. The book rates a posting in it's own right, but tonight I'm not up to doing it justice. If the computer will start and stay on, I'll try tomorrow.
