Computing started with a Commodore 64. Today it is a 64 bit Windows 8 nightmare with viruses, hackers and spam. I thought it was going to get easier and for awhile it did. Now it is complicated to me. Especially with all the "fix your computer and make it faster'" software that is all over the Internet. I don't buy a car and then buy brakes after to make it stop. The brakes worked when I bought the car. Of course now cars are beginning to get more technology in them and in the future maybe you will have to buy break software. For a technology that is suppose to have gotten faster and more reliable it seems to have gotten more expensive and unreliable. Is it only me that thinks this?
Thank God for the people in India. It seems they are the only ones that know how to fix this stuff. Plus they are only a phone call away. Still I continue with my computer and keep coming back like an abused person. Why for some reason, does this not compute?

A group of veterans were discussing how America sells weapons and military technology to foreign countries and how sometimes these weapons end up in our enemy's hands. Don't worry one man said America is not stupid enough to sell foreign governments our good weapons or technology. We sell them cheap weapons and inferior technology. Wow! Explained another man. That explains the veteran that just got back from Afghanistan. He lost 2 legs and an arm over there. If the enemy had the good technology and weapons he would have been killed.

I recently was contacted by my daughter requesting I discontinue my gift giving. It seems that she is running out of room. Five children seem to take up and use lot of space. I was a little bummed. Then I found some great toy box containers online. I like helping out my daughter.

I once heard someone say. "In order to find out the secret of life one must die." Then he said, What if there is no life after death? If this is true why even bother with the question of life or death at all?" Of course it is lent and he is bummed about fasting.

I lost a fight with a frozen breakfast sausage. It was stuck to another one. I tried to separate them with a knife. The nurse in the Emergency Room was kind. I found Wattpad on the Internet. I like reading other people's stories. My hand still hurts. I am not laughing. But I am in stitches.

A waitress approaches a table and sees a regular customer sitting alone. Where is your wife? Inquired the waitress. Well after 61 years of marriage she passed on. "I am so sorry," was the saddened reply of the waitress. "Oh it is ok." Comforted the old man. "Like all of us she has been waiting a long time for that to happen." He then ordered, ate and left a good tip. As usual.
