Every so often, there's a piece of writing that resonates with you. A bit of poetry entitled "Sheila's Brush" hit me that way today. It's written by fellow blogger WiseWebWoman (a self-assigned moniker by the way!) and speaks of today's weather. Take a moment to go there and enjoy it: http://wisewebwoman.blogspot.com/
My main computer took a dive earlier this week. I didn't get it into the computer guys until yesterday afternoon because of a busy week. It will take them a few days to figure out whether it's worth salvaging. Fortunately, I've been doing regular backups and, on the advice of a colleague a few months ago, signed up for an online backup service called Carbonite. If you don't have a reliable back-up system in place, I'd recommend you visit them http://www.carbonite.ca/ They're saving my butt!
In the meantime, last week I decided to buy a little netbook computer that was on sale at Staples to have something to stick in my backpack and lug around with me to meetings, etc. It looks and feels like a toy, but having used it now for a couple of days, I can tell you it's far from a toy. The small (10.1") screen is a bit of an adjustment and the smaller keyboard is a challenge at times, but it revs right along.
Anyway, thanks wildwebwoman for your contribution to the literary world today. It made my day! :-)
