Cute pic.

SU and I wandered this afternoon......went to Janesville and "hacked around" Went to Sam's and got 2 whole pork loins to cook up for the party in the shop Sat. Kids are doing a fireworks show. So, I'm doing the sandwich stuff. Invites said for everyone to bring their own beverage of choice and a munchie to share. Oh, I'll have hot water and hot cocoa mix if anyone wants a hot drink. Might be good on a cold night. I'm sure they'll crank up the heat in the shop, tho.

Went to Best Buy and looked at an iPad.....again. Still didn't buy, mainly because none of the Geeks came and talked to me. I guess if i buy one I'll get it locally at the Radio Shack.

Ernie, at least at my local Radio Shack I can ask ?? and they will take the time to talk to me. I know it will be smarter than me by about, oh.....let's say LOTS and I am having a hard time dealing with my camera having a Mensa mentality. Big Grin Does Linda like her iPad?

Off to the Torture Chamber.......will pop back in later.

Hi Anna,

I gave my other half an Ipad for his birthday this year - he's lived on it ever since!

He is totally non IT - still believes flicking a switch and having a light come on elsewhere has something to do with magic - and he finds the Ipad a doddle, so it is obviously idiot proof!! Unlike his PC, which I was always being asked to "sort out for me", I haven't been asked, or allowed, to touch the Ipad.

Is easy to enlarge stuff too- just touch with finger and thumb and move them apart and things get bigger, move them closer together and they get smaller. It also works Kindle fashion as a book reader - there is a free Kindle App for it. He never uses the PC now!

Does that help?

Carol

I agree Anna, if you buy it locally, it will be easier to get help when you need it.

Yes Ernie, you sang to me and everything. The kids all came over Saturday. Heather left the two little ones home. It was very cold and windy and she didn't want to take them out. Jr. and Jodi brought their kids though. Tiana always starts out very shy and quiet. I was able to get her to come sit with me by reading her a book. After that she was fine. Both kids were having fun playing and didn't want to go home when it was time to leave.

I don't know about a "man magnet" Ernie, but that is me (like you didn't know that) there reading to the kids.

Have a great day all!!

Sounds like a nice birthday Sheri. I just keep giggling at your avatar. I see it is a puzzle now (so it's preserved even if you go back to 'normal' Hilarious! ), haven't done it yet though.

Anna, I do understand your concern on the Ipad...I HATE having to figure new stuff out...I get it done, then my nephews geeks come by and show me all kinds of 'features' I missed and leave me all befuddled with way too much information spewed only in part because of what they assume I already know in between! They forget they were born with it!

Carol...so funny!...I need a new door bell but haven't quite grasped the technology yet. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Ariana's little spot at stardom........they sent us link to see it before it is aired. She's the little girl in a red shirt with a white shirt under it, and long brown hair. Also the last girl in the video that says Together we can all break the chain.

Supposed be starting around the 8th of this month til 'April. "There is some confusion as to which channel though. Amber, my daughter, was told channel 6 and her ex's mom claims channel 4. Ariana, upon my questioning when she got home, played closed mouth and said you'll just have to watch Fox 6 Wake-up Nana and see. Stinker.

Where is everyone?

I finally got Christmas stuff all put away and my house back in order.

Did I tell you guys that I am rehoming one of my birds? Jamaica is my only female and recently realized it. I have a bird friend in IL that has 3 female budgies and she came up today to pick up Jamaica. I'm going to miss my little girl but I know she is going to a good home where she will be treated much as she is here.

Jamaica is gone now. I took a few pics:

Wow! Isn't it really cold to transport Jamaica? I thought you couldn't do that. Here's a stoooopid question of ignorance: why did it make a difference that she is female?..or that she realized it?

It is cold but, with care, it can be done easily and safely. Paula let her car warm up before she left and we covered the cage heavily with blankets.

It made a difference because I don't want or need baby budgies. The world has enough unwanted birds sitting in shelters. I don't need to add to the population. Also, there is the fear that something would go wrong. Though most birdy births go smoothly, they can get egg bound or other complications can set in, just like with any other animal including humans. With a small bird, many of these complications require IMMEDIATE medical care by an avian vet or they certainly will result in death. My vet is 35 min. away and, if something should happen after hours, I would have to go 1hr 15 min. to get to the nearest emergency avian vet. Not a risk I was willing to take with Jamaica just to populate and already over populated species.

Ah HA!...so it wasn't Jamaica that was concerned to learn she was a female afterall...it was (and by all logical rights), her mom! Hilarious!
