I decided to hold off on selling the cz52. I only sent the .22 magnum Rossi 62 and 200 rounds of Silver Bear .308 ammo (very shiny but not for the SKS).

That's a good bear.

Default For 'Gello

Not a very good picture as it was taken with my cell phone. But here's a picture of "naughty kitty" stashing a straw under the kitchen rug. Sometimes he can get the straw under there without messing up the rug at all. He's a bit over zealous this time.

But it has Windows 8 and my kids say I'll find it difficult to use. I'm not computer savvy and if it's unfamiliar to me, it might be difficult for me to use.

It's so easy, even she can do it!!

And then again...

It was only the matter of a few keystrokes or moving the cursor or something, but frustrating nonetheless. This machine (mine, not the loaner) has Windows 8 on it and I am having this issue when I am typing along and for some reason the cursor moves somewhere else on the page and starts inserting my words there. Depending on what sort of doc

OK, there now, all the sudden a window popped up for Windows Media Player Install, a program I never use. Ever. Don't know why it came up, I was just typing along. WTF?

so anyhow, depending on the document I am writing it can be a major problem for me, as I have to figure out where the cursor moved to, and where it should have been, how much of what I wrote got moved, etc., etc., and then try and get my mind back into what I was writing when I got derailed.

I hate my computer. I keep thinking of getting an Mac because they are so much more user-friendly for the non-techie (Hell, around here there are just as many techies who love Macs as non-techies).

OK, the "print" window just came up and I was nowhere near the damned "P" or the "ctrl" button. WTF!!!!????

The Mac preferences are probably much more prevalent here near Apple's Ground Zero though. Lots of people employed by them here.

None of that ever happens to me.

Funniest photos ever of men with cats. Effing hilarious! (I apologize in advance to 'Gello if his pic is among them).
