STILL NO ANSWERS.  I SPENT ALL AFTERNOON AND EVENING TRYING TO GET MY IM UP  AND RUNNING AGAIN...BUT SO FAR NO GOOD.  ALL MY PERSONAL FOLDERS ARE GONE.  ALL THE LETTERS ARE STILL THERE BUT ONLY THE HEADERS SHOW, NONE OF THE BACKGROUNDS.  I REALLY NEED MY FOLDERS BACK. I STILL CANNOT SEND OR RECEIVE EMAIL IN IT.  THEY HAD ME DOWNLOAD MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD...AND EMAIL PROGRAM AND SET IT UP AND THEN TRANSFER THE SETTINGS INTO IM BUT THAT DID NOT WORK.  SO I USED TO HAVE MOMS EMAIL COME INTO MY IM BUT AS A DIFFERENT USER.  SO I RESTORED HER SETTINGS AND HER MAIL WILL SEND AND RECEIVE.  SO I MADE SURE MY SETTINGS MATCHED HERS AND  MINE STILL WILL NOT WORK.  HOW CAN THAT BE SINCE WE ARE FROM THE SAME ACCOUNT ON THE SERVER?  I DO NOT GET IT.  I FOUND MY CHROME POST ON GOOGLE HELP FORUM AND HAD NOT MORE SUGGESTIONS THERE.  I GOT REALLY FRUSTRATED AND TRIED DOING A SYSTEM RESTORE BACK TO BEFORE THIS ALL HAPPENED. IT WENT ON A LONG TIME AND TOLD ME IT WAS UNABLE TO FINISH, JUST LIKE THE LAST TIME....BUT IT DID WORK SOME....MOZILLA FIRE FOX AND THUNDERBIRD ARE GONE AND SO IS CALIBRE AN EREADER PROGRAM THAT I HAD ADDED THAT I HAD ALREADY ADDED BOOKS TO. SO THOSE ARE LOST TOO, I HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO REDOWNLOAD FF, SO AM USING IE TONIGHT AND IT IS WORKING FAIRLY WELL AND I CAN SEE BORDERS AND TAGS!  YIPPEE!!

I AM SORRY YOUR FOOD AND SERVICE WAS NOT AS EXCELLENT AS YOU HAD HOPED FOR AND EXPERIENCED IN THE PAST.  THE FOOD LOOKS WONDERFUL TO ME.  IS THAT HOW PERKING DUCK IS USUALLY SERVED.  I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS A WHOLE DUCK THAT THEY HAD TO CUT UP IN FRONT OF YOU.  I DO NOT KNOW WHY I THOUGHT THAT, LOL.  IT SOUNDS WONDERFUL AND I DO LIKE PLUM SAUCE.

HERE IS THE NEXT VERSE FOR MIKE.

HOW OLD ARE YOU?

HOW OLD ARE YOU?

HOW OLD IS MICHAEL?

HOW OLD ARE YOU?

LOL, TELL HIM HE DOES NOT HAVE TO ANSWER THAT.

I GOT MY CDO TAG CHALLENGES DONE IN THE NICK OF TIME.  TODAY, LOL.

MAYBE IT WILL LET ME POST SOME AS I HAVE TAGS BUILDING UP FOR YOU.

CHRIS AND SCOTT, WHAT A PAIR.  IF THEY QUIT DRINKING THEY MIGHT HAVE A HAPPY LIFE.

SCOTT DRIVES CAB AND ONLY GETS PAID WHEN HE WORKS...SO WHEN THERE ARE NO RUNS HE DOES NOT GET PAID.  OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.  HE HAD A GOOD JOB AND GOT WHERE HE DID NOT LIKE IT ANY MORE AND QUIT.  THANK GOD CHRIS WAS WORKING THEN AS IT TOOK HIM A WHILE BEFORE HE GOT THE CAB JOB.  SO CHRIS USED TO WORK AT ONE OF THE HOTELS AS A HOUSEKEEPER.  UNTIL SHE GOT INTO A DISAGREEMENT WITH HER BOSS AND QUIT.  I ACTUALLU THINK SHE WAS FIRED.  SHE DID NOT GET ANOTHER JOB FOR A LONG TIME.  SHE GOT A JOB AT A PACKAGING COMPANY THROUGH A NEIGHBOR NEXT DOOR.  THEY RUN 2 SHIFTS, AM AND PM THAT ARE 12 HOURS.  SHE IS PM'S AND WORKS 4 PM TO 4 AM OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. BUT SHE OFTEN IS CALLED OFF WHEN THERE IS NOT ENOUGH WORK TO RUN THE 2ND SHIFT.  RIGHT NOW THEY ARE WORKING, BUT SHE WAS OFF FOR 2 WEEKS OR MORE BEFORE LAST WEEK.  THIS IS WHY THEY ARE BEHIND ON ALL THEIR BILLS.  SCOTT HAS CHILD SUPPORT TO PAY FOR HIS 2 SONS FROM PREVIOUS MARRIAGE TOO.  THE SPLIT WAS BECAUSE SCOTT TOLD HER HE HAD FOUND SOMEONE ELSE WHO DID NOT TREAT HIM SO BAD.  WHEN SHE DRINKS SEE GOES OFF THE HANDLE EASILY AND TAKES IT ALL OUT ON HIM.  BUT SHE ALSO IS A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY WHO ALWAYS WANTS TO BE DOING SOMETHING WITH OTHERS AND SCOTT WANTS SOME ALONE TIME.  WHEN SHE DID NOT WORK HE WANTED TO DO THINGS TOGETHER ON HIS DAYS OFF AND SHE WOULD MAKE OTHER PLANS.  SO THEN WHEN THEY DRINK, THEY BRING UP THESE THINGS AND FIGHT.  I AM FEELING REALLY GUILTY THAT SHE STILL BELIEVES THAT IT WAS SCOTT'S MOM THAT CALLED THE POLICE.  WE TRIED TO GET THEM TO BELIEVE A NEIGHBOR CALLED BUT CHRIS WILL NOT BUDGE EVEN THOUGH SCOTT TELLS HER IT WAS NOT HIS MOM.  SHE THINKS HE IS JUST COVERING FOR HER.  IT DOES NOT BODE WELL FOR THE FUTURE.   I AM SUCH A COWARD...MAYBE I SHOULD JUST TELL HER AND BE DONE WITH IT.  BUT I FEEL YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO ANONYMITY. WHEN YOU CALL, SO I THINK I WILL CONTINUE BEING A COWARD.

HUGS,  LOU ANN

And a cheery good morning to you!

I "took the day off" yesterday.  Two or three nights with 3 or 4 hours of sleep, and I crash and burn.  On a happier note, Mike fixed the leftover duck and it was delicious.  More for tonight!  :-)

I gave Mike a "bucket" of Fannie Mae candies ~ small bags of individually wrapped Pixies, Dark Chocolate Salted Caramels and Buckeyes, and I sang "Happy Birthday Week to you".  lol  That ought to hold him until his birthday.  ;-)   A couple more Longmires, and we finished Season 2.  We are also getting ready to finish re-re-watching The Closer.  What we're going to watch at night when they are done I do not know.

I just sang your second verse to him ~ lol.   He's going to be 69, and because I've braved those higher numbers before him, he isn't having trouble with it.  We'll see how he does next year ~ lol.

Then last night I took a Benedryl and I slept for over 6 hours! They were interrupted with a couple of trips to the bathroom, but then I could go back to sleep again.  Whooo-Hoooo!  I feel HUMAN!  


I wish so much that I could help you, but I really haven't a clue!   I would turn it over to Mike, but I don't know he could fix it either.  He'd have to get his hands on it and do those things that I don't understand that he does.  You are really to be applauded for not just throwing your hands up in despair.   I think I would!   Then, of course, I would go in to deep dark depression, being cut off from my 'Life Line' to the outside world.

Watching the shootings of the TV journalists in VA now.  Between that and the Election (Good Lord, how long are we going to have to be buried in this?  Aarrgghh).  Only bad or upsetting news can be shown apparently.  No wonder I can't sleep!    Sounds like the shooter was one of those who felt that everyone and everything was against him because he was Black.  I don't doubt that he had challenges, but . . . oh, well.  We won't let me "start".  lol.  God bless the blacks like Ben Carson and Alan West and Herman Cain and Mia Love and ~~~ all the blacks I worked with, who dealt with any unfairness and ugly people by OVER achieving.  Hard to look down on someone who is clearly superior.  I often think of Ben Carson's mom ~ what an awesome woman ~~ and then I see a few awesome black Moms and Grandmas on TV, putting their fingers directly on the problems that they CAN deal with.  You know their kids are not going to end up in jail.

The Chris and Scott saga ~~oh, my.  I suspect you won't be able to count on things quieting down for more than a week or two at a time.  I don't know what to hope for, except that you and your mom don't have to deal with anymore unpleasantness.  No, I wouldn't 'confess' either.  They are too unstable.

I have new updates from Barb to post.  She came home on Saturday!    

Our other Barb is on her way home from the states as we speak.  Her mom is holding her own, but I don't think she will be able to for much longer.  Right now, Barb plans to go back in October.  What a horrid situation for her.  I'm anxious to "see" her when she is able to post again.

Have a Mahvelous Monday and get all those problems fixed!  (Easy for ME to say ~ ha!)

TODAY FIRST THING I RE-DOWNLOADED FIREFOX AND THE THUNDERBIRD EMAIL.
I WENT INTO MY IM TO GET AN ADDRESS AND LO AND BEHOLD, MY FOLDERS WERE BACK!
AND, OMG, MY EMAIL WAS DOWNLOADING.  I WAS IN SEVENTH HEAVEN.  I WAS SO VERY HAPPY AND THOUGHT, MAYBE TODAY IS THE DAY I GET CHROME BACK.  SO I WENT TO THE FORUM AND FOUND SOME INSTRUCTIONS ON THINGS TO TRY THAT INVOLVED SHUTTING OFF MY VIRUS PROTECTION AND RESTARTING IN SAFE MODE AND TRYING TO START CHROME THAT WAY.  THE FIRST TIME DID NOTHING AND THEN I REMEMBERED THAT I HAD NOT SHUT DOWN MY AVG SO I DID THAT AND RESTARTED IN SAFE MODE.  NO GOOD, AS IT WILL NOT COME UP WITHOUT THE VIRUS ON.  SO IT WAS A NO GO AFTER SPENDING FOREVER FUTZING.  SO THEN WHEN I WENT IN MY IM EMAIL, OH NO.  COULD NOT SEE THE IMAGES OR BACKGROUNDS IN THE MAIL.  AND ONCE AGAIN I CANNOT SEE THE BORDERS HERE.  I AM PRAYING THAT WHEN I GET UP TOMORROW MORNING IT WILL ALL BE BACK.  A GIRL CAN DREAM, CAN'T SHE?

I AM SO JEALOUS THAT YOU CAN WATCH LONGMIRE.  I REALLY LIKED THAT SHOW A LOT. 
NAN IS COMING IN SUNDAY AND WE ARE GOING TO FAUSKA'S.  WE JUST HAVE 3 HOURS
 LEFT OF SELFRIDGE FOR THIS SEASON.  ALSO THE GIRLS WILL BE JOINING US WITH
 THE BOYS, LOL.  DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE WILL DO FOR SUPPER. 
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

OUR POOR BARB, AS IF SHE DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH.  
I HOPE SHE WILL BE ABLE TO GET ANOTHER TRIP IN BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING BARB'S TRIP NOTES WITH ME. 
IT SURE IS A MIRACLE WHAT SHE HAS DONE FOR VICTOR.  I LOVE HER!

WHAT DAY IS MIKE'S BIRTHDAY?  I HAVE SUCH A HORRID MEMORY. 
HERE IS THE LAST VERSE FOR MIKE.

MAY THE DEAR LORD BLESS YOU,
MAY THE DEAR LORD BLESS YOU,
MAY THE DEAR LORD BLESS MICHAEL.
MAY THE DEAR LORD BLESS YOU.

SOUNDS AS IF FANNIE MAE WAS JUST THE THING TO KEEP HIM GOING, LOL. 
I KNOW IT WOULD ME, LOL.

I AM SO HAPPY TO HEAR THAT YOU HAD A FAIR AMOUNT OF SLEEP FOR ONCE.
NOW TRY TO KEEP THAT GOING AND SLEEP AT LEAST THAT MUCH EVERY NIGHT.

I WISH I COULD FIND A WAY TO PUT TAGS IN HERE.  I GOT THEM ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE PROCESS, EXCEPT WHEN  THEY SHOULD INSERT AND THEN NOTHING HAPPENS.  I AM LESS AND
LESS FRUSTRATED AND MORE AND MORE RESIGNED TO TRYING WHATEVER THEY TELL ME TO.
BUT I AM NOT HAPPY.  IT HAS ALL BEEN SUCH A HUGE WASTE OF TIME.  I AM SURE I WILL FEEL DIFFERENTLY WHEN WE FINALLY FIGURE IT OUT.
HAVE A GREAT HUMP DAY!

LOVE, LOU ANN

Today is my niece Mary Ann's surgery, and I would appreciate your prayers for her.  She is having both a hysterectomy and her bladder repositioned because it has 'fallen'.  She's more nervous about the bladder surgery because she's afraid she might 'leak' afterwards or something.  I think both parts of the surgery are serious, so please keep her in your prayers.

She will only stay overnight in the hospital ~ unbelievable how they kick you out so fast, but she should come home tomorrow if all is well.  She will be off work for six weeks! The croissants we sent instead of flowers got there yesterday and she seemed quite pleased.  In a few days I am going to send the second season of "Miss Fisher's Murders" for her to watch while she is at home recovering.  I expect this weekend she will have a full house, since her mother, Alice, and her sister, Catherine both moved there earlier this year, and I'm sure Katie and Aaron will come too.  She had Jack with her earlier in the week and loved it.


Tonight is Mike's second Birthday celebration.  He found a new-to-us 4.5 (out of 5) star Mexican Restaurant he wants to try.  It's apparently very busy, and a long way from here, so we will go early ~~ old folks hour.  Ha ~ Who am I kidding?  We'd go early whether we thought it was going to be busy or not.  lol  Review tomorrow, but possibly later because Shauna comes tomorrow. 

Mike got more gifts yesterday ~ via UPS.  Gift giving in our house is sometimes nothing short of bizarre.  ha.  I got him some plain and BBQ Kitchen Cooked potato chips from Iowa.  They really are good and you can't get them here, so I did that once before and he kept saying he wanted them again, so What the Heck.  I don't have any 'big' gifts for him.  I also had Williams Sonoma send an appetizer tray of lobster appetizers with the order  of croissants I ordered when I ordered Mary Ann's.  I paid for the lobster and "Joint" pays for the rest.  One night during his celebration weeks, we are going to have an appetizer dinner in the Library!    (I know.  We're crazy.  Ha!)

We are almost through watching the entire three seasons of Longmire, and I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed it.  I think sometimes before I watched when I was on my laptop, so I was a bit distracted.   Or maybe it was just seeing them again, but I got so much more than I did before.  I will be sorry to see the next few episodes end, and then to have to start watching it weekly again.  Oooh, how I hope the 'new' Longmire is as good as the CBS version.   I get so upset with CBS.  They develop really outstanding, quality shows that appeal to the Wrong Demographic (a.k.a. those of us over age 49!) and then they dump the shows because they are attracting the wrong crowd. On the one hand, I wouldn't have them at all if CBS didn't develop them, but on the other hand ~~~~~ aarrgghh.

How strange everything is with your Laptop!   First ~ Hooray!  Everything is coming back, and then . .. .  sigh.   So do you still have your email and folders at least??

Lovely that you are looking forward to a night with your friends and more Selfridge!   I wish I could "beam you here" to share binge watching Longmire with us, and help us eat all the bad, bad carbs we are snarfing down!  BAD Mike and Dorothy!

Barb is back and has already posted.  It must have been stress, but when she started to board the plane in Canada to come to the states, she almost passed out.  Everything seems fine now, but I'm glad I didn't know or I'd have worried the whole time she was gone.  Her sister moved into her mom's house, which she shares with Barb's brother Cliff and his wife. They have the upstairs and her mom has the lower floor.  Her sister Patti is staying there to take care of her mom while Cliff is at work.  Barb was back and forth between the two houses, which are in different towns.  I suspect she is exhausted.  She said the cats were all over her when she came in, and one slept all night curled up next to her.  I'm surprised they forgave her so quickly for abandoning them ~ lol.  She has several Dr appts during September.  I just hope and pray that everything is still good with her kidneys.  She has done so well her Dr is amazed.  

Mike's birthday is on Sunday, the 30th.  I "sang" him the last of your song, and he said "Awwww".   He loved it.  Thank you for sharing our party with us!

I admire your sticking to the work on your Laptop.  I think I may have tossed it out the window by now!   Just kidding.  Like you, I never give up, though the air above my head might be "blue".  LOL   Hang in there!

I posted a new update from 'Doctor Barb'.  She's back home now!

Love you whole bunches.

Update:   I had asked Mary Ann to have Catherine or one of the kids let us know how everything went after the surgery was over.   Around 2PM, I got a text FROM Mary Ann, sent to the four of us, saying it was all over and everything was fine.   I texted back and said that she must be texting from the OR ~ lol.  Definitely a relief, but if you feel inclined to send a few more prayers as she crosses your mind, that would be nice.   Thanks so much!

Change in plans:  Mike has decided he'd rather order Indian in than go out to the new Mexican restaurant, and since it's his birthday celebration, that's fine with me!   Actually, it would be fine if it weren't his birthday week ~ laugh.  I'm pretty sure we will still try the Mexican restaurant later, but I won't be able to give you a review tomorrow.

I got all of Mike's presents wrapped, so now I can just sit back and relax and enjoy his celebration.  ;-)

Love 'n Hugs,

LOL, I KNOW DR. BARB IS BACK.  I DID COMMENT ON HER IN MY LAST POST TO YOU.
I DID NOT POST ON THAT POST AS I DID HERE...THAT IS WHO I AM REFERRING TO WHEN
I SAID THANKS FOR SHARING HER TRIP AND I MENTIONED VICTOR.  IT GETS CONFUSING
SINCE WE TALK ABOUT 2 BARBS, SO FROM NOW ON I WILL SAY DR. BARB FOR YOUR
NEIGHBOR AND BARB FOR OUR NONI 2.

OOH, NEW MEXICAN PLACE, HAVE A CHIMI FOR ME.  THEY ARE MY FAVORITE!  THOUGH
IT'S ALL GOOD IN THE LONG RUN, AS LONG AS IT IS NOT TOO HOT.  GIFTS ARE SOUNDING
VERY YUMMY.  THE ONLY LOBSTER I HAVE EVER HAD WAS A LOBSTER GRINDER WHEN
I WAS IN MAINE.  I WAS DELICIOUS.  NAN HAD A LOBSTER AT A RESTAURANT WE WENT
TO THERE, BUT I OPTED FOR THE SWORDFISH STEAK.  I WAS GOOD, BUT WISH I HAD GONE
WITH THE LOBSTER SO I COULD SAY THAT I HAVE HAD ONE.  I LIKE TO HAVE SOMETHING
FROM THE AREA I VACATION IN...THOUGH HAVE REALLY ONLY BEEN ON 2 REAL VACATIONS
IN MY ADULT LIFE...OTHER THAN LONG WEEKENDS AWAY.  WHEN IN CALIFORNIA, MY
FOOD GAMBLE WAS CALAMARI.  I HAVE HAD IT SINCE AND IT NEVER EVEN COMPARED TO
THAT I HAD AT A RESTAURANT ON FISHERMAN'S WHARF.

I AM GLAD THAT BARB'S FAMILY IS ALL THERE TO HELP OUT AND BE THERE FOR HER
MOM.  WHAT SHE IS GOING THROUGH IS MY BIGGEST FEAR.  I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I
WILL DO WITHOUT MY MOM.  I CANNOT AFFORD TO CONTINUE TO LIVE HERE OR ANY
WHERE FOR THAT MATTER.  THE IDEAL THING WOULD BE FOR MY SISTER DIANE TO
ALLOW ME TO LIVE WITH HER AND HELP HER WITH BILLS, ETC.  BUT I DO NOT THINK
SHE WANTS THAT.  I WOULD NOT WANT TO LIVE WITH EITHER OF MY SISTERS SINCE
THEY HAVE FAMILIES AND I JUST DO NOT WANT TO BE IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYONE
ELSE'S LIVES.  DIANE IS HARDLY HOME AND WE ARE A LOT ALIKE AND WE LIKE THE
SAME SHOWS, LOL.  I WOULD HELP WITH SOME HOUSE WORK BUT SHE TOO HAS HER
LAUNDRY IN HER BASEMENT.  IF IT WAS ON THE SAME LEVEL I COULD EASILY DO IT.
WELL, NOT GOING TO DWELL ON IT AT THIS TIME.  I JUST KEEP PRAYING FOR BARB
AND HER FAMILY.
ALSO PRAYED FOR MARY ANN AND FAMILY.  HOPE SHE HAS A QUICK AND PAINLESS
RECOVERY/HEALING AND THE HER BLADDER WORKS BETTER THAN EVER.

IM, YES, MY FOLDERS ARE ALL BACK, THANK YOU GOD FOR THAT!  BUT I CANNOT SEE
THE LETTERS, THEY ARE THERE BUT DO NOT SHOW UP AND NONE COMING THROUGH
SHOW UP....JUST THE HEADERS, NONE OF THE BACKGROUNDS.
NOTHING NEW FOR CHROME.  TODAY THEY TOLD ME TO UNISTALL AND THEN REINSTALL.
I DID THIS EASILY (BEFORE I EVEN HAD ISSUES WITH THAT) BUT STILL NO CHROME.  JUST
THOSE DAMN DARK PAGES SAYING "HE'S DEAD JIM".  I STILL HAVE HOPE.
HAVING ISSUES WITH FF NOW, IT FROZE UP SEVERAL TIMES TONIGHT AND I HAD TO USE
TASK MASTER TO SHUT IT DOWN AND RESTART.  AND I CANNOT SEE BORDERS HERE
OR INSERT TAGS.  MAYBE I WILL JUST HAVE TO SEND THEM TO YOU VIA FB OR EMAIL.

LOL, JUST SAW THE NOTE ABOUT DOING INDIAN INSTEAD OF MEXICAN.  I DO NOT THINK
I HAVE EVER EATEN INDIAN FOOD.  SO WHAT DO YOU GET FROM THERE???  I KNEW I WOULD
BE TOO LATE FOR MARY ANN'S SURGERY, SO I PRAYED FOR HER RECOVERY.  HAPPY TO HEAR
THAT ALL WENT WELL.

WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY, TGIF FOR YOU AND I HOPE YOU BOTH DO NOT GET TOO
EXHAUSTED WHEN SHAUNA CLEANS THE HOUSE, LOL.  SLEEP WELL SISTER DEAR!
HUGS, LOU ANN

Hello
Ooooh, am I tired.   I slept 5 hours last night (YAY!) and then got up to go the the bathroom, and couldn't stop hacking and 'snorting'.  Apparently there was a lot of sinus dranage while I was sleeping ~ so I was awake way too early.  Then, as you know, the harder Shauna works, the more tired we get ~ lol   

Last night I glanced out of the window and saw the Moon over Denver.  I can never get a really good moon picture, but I took these with my new iPad Mini, and I really think the camera is seriously good!  

  



I haven't heard from Mary Ann yet, but I'm assuming no news is good news.  She is supposed to come home today, and I imagine it will be pretty busy and exhausting at her house.   Again thank you so much for your prayers for her.  

Today the lawn service actually trimmed our bushes!  Hooray!   I wish they had trimmed the lilacs a bit better (more severely), but I will be delighted to take what ever I can get!   

The Indian food was ~ and will be ~ delicious.  Mike has decided that he likes my favorite Chicken Korma so he ordered two plus his own Chicken Tiki Masala.  The Korma was ordered VERY mild and the Tiki Masala, medium heat.  And of course the wonderful Naan and both basalmic and saffron rice.  More for tonight, and then we may freeze the leftovers if there are any for later. 

 
Ooh, I really don't like swordfish (too "fishy"), so I would definitely have had the Lobster.  We don't order Lobster out very much anymore.  Sad, but it just doesn't seem either sweet or tender so much of the time, and that was what made you love it.  Very hit and miss anymore, to me.   Hopefully these little Lobster Appetizers will be good.  They sound good.  We'll see.

I really can imagine the thoughts you have about the possibility of losing your mom ~ on so many different levels.  We'll just have to pray that she becomes one of those people that Willard Scott will come out of retirement to honor!

Hope you've had a great day and have a really good night!

I DO NOT RECALL MY SWORDFISH BEING FISHY AND I DO NOT LIKE FISHY.
IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO, I THINK IT HAD A SAUCE ON ONE END AND ON THE PLATE.
FANCIER RESTAURANT SERVING IT VERY STYLISHLY.  I DO REMEMBER LIKING IT.
WE WERE ON THE COAST AND MOST OF THE RESTAURANTS HAD THEIR OWN BOATS
FOR GETTING LOBSTER AND FISH, ETC. WE WENT OUT ON ONE AND LEARNED ABOUT
LOBSTERING.  SEAGULLS FOLLOWED THE BOAT AS THEY WOULD TOSS THINGS IN THE
AIR THAT MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN CAUGHT IN THEIR TRAPS AND THE BIRDS WOULD
CATCH THEM.  THEY EVEN HAD A GULL THAT THEY HAD NAMED THAT ALWAYS STAYED
RIGHT WITH THEM AND SETTLED ON THE BOAT AT NIGHT.  IT WOULD COME UP TO THE
WINDOW LOOKING FOR A HAND OUT.  HE HAD AN EASY LIFE, LOL  BUT HAD TO FEND
FOR HIMSELF WHEN THE BOAT DID NOT GO OUT.

NO ANSWERS TO MY TROUBLES YET.  I HAD ANOTHER LIST OF THINGS TO DO TODAY
AND THE FIRST WENT OK, BUT COULD NOT COMPLETE IT AS DIRECTED.  THE 2ND I HAD
QUESTIONS ABOUT TOO.  SO I TOOK SCREEN SHOTS AND POSTED MY CONCERNS AND THE
SHOTS. BUT PROBABLY WILL NOT HEAR BACK TILL TOMORROW.  TAKING SO DAMN LONG.

IM HAS ALL IT'S FOLDERS AND THEY ARE WORKING FINE, BUT YOU CANNOT SEE THE
STATIONARY.  WHY HAVE IM WITHOUT THE STATIONARY?  THE PROBLEM BEING THAT
I SENT THEM A NOTICE THAT ALL WAS WELL.  BUT RESCINDED IT AND TOLD THEM NO
BACKGROUNDS.  TODAY I GOT A NOTICE THAT MY CASE WAS CLOSED.  SO I WROTE BACK
THAT IT WAS NOT AND I STILL NEEDED HELP.  IT ALL TAKES SO LONG.  IT IS TOO BAD YOU
CANNOT JUST TALK ONE ON ONE WITH SOMEONE AND GET TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM.

AS FAR AS MARY ANN, I AGREE, NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.  I AM SURE SHE IS TIRED FROM
YESTERDAYS SURGERY AND THEN HAS FAMILY TAKING CARE OF HER AND JUST HAS NOT
HAD A CHANCE TO UPDATE YOU.  THOUGH YOU WOULD THINK THAT SOMEONE ELSE WOULD.
IT IS ALWAYS SO HARD BEING FAR AWAY.

SINCE I HAVE NEVER HAD INDIAN FOOD.  THE NAMES DO NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO ME.
JUST WHAT ARE THEY?  LOL  TIKI MASALA, KORMA, NAAN?  I HAVE HAD SAFFRON RICE
AND LOVED IT.  BUT NOT BALSAMIC.

YAY FOR TRIMMED BUSHES, SHAUNA'S CLEANING AND GREAT MOON SHOTS.
BOO FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO GET BACK TO SLEEP.
HUGS FOR MY WONDERFUL SISTER AND YOU CAN PASS THEM ON TO MY
WONDERFUL BROTHER IN LAW  :)
LOVE, LOU ANN

We made it through another week!  

I slept pretty well last night, so I'm ready to face a brand new day.   How 'bout you all?   We finished watching the entire Longmire series last night ~ what a ride! I had remembered the ending differently.  Definitely a Cliff Hanger! Now we're ready for the new season on Sept 10th, and grateful for it's bing picked up by Netflix!      

smiley19

It's Mike's Birthday Eve, and I think we are going to have a wee Birthday Eve celebration, just the two of us, tonight.  Given my recent track record for saying what we are going to do and then not doing it, I'll wait till tomorrow to tell you about our evening.  Entirely possible that we will spend the evening vegging out in front of the TV.  ha!

I really can imagine your frustration trying so many things to recover your system, and not even knowing why it went crazy in the first place!   I am not a patient person.  I know that by now I would have pitched fit after fit, and possibly been carted off in a straight jacket!

You asked about our Indian food ~~


Chicken Tikka Masala (I spelled it wrong before) ~

http://www.food.com/recipe/chicken-tikka-masala-25587


Chicken Korma ~

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/chicken-korma-recipe.html

Indian food tends to be quite spicy (downright HOT) but you can (and I do!) ask for it mild.  Whether or not you actually GET it mild is a whole 'nuther issue, but I'll save that rant for another day. ;-)


And then there is the bread, which is sooo wonderful ~

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aarti-sequeira/naan-indian-oven-baked-flat-bread-recipe.html

Naan is the basic bread, and then they add all sorts of things to make variations.  I think this time we had Onion Naan and Garlic Butter Naan, but there are all sorts of combinations they come up with.

It really is too bad we don't have Scotty's Beam-Me-Up machine so we could zip back and forth and try each other's favorite things.  I guess we'll just have to settle for sharing descriptions.  

Have a lovely day, Sweet Sister.

Dorothy

THANKS FOR THE INFO ON THE INDIAN FOOD, I WILL CHECK IT OUT.
EVER SINCE I HAVE BEEN DOING NEBULIZER TREATMENTS MY MOUTH AND TONGUE
HAVE BECOME SUPER-SENSITIVE AND I CANNOT HANDLE ANYTHING THE LEAST BIT
SPICY HOT.  THINGS I USED TO EAT I CANNOT ANY MORE.  EVEN SODA'S
CARBONATION BURNS. REALLY SUCKS.

TODAY HAS BEEN BEYOND HORRIBLE WITH THE PEEPS TRYING TO HELP ME WITH
CHROME.  ALL THINGS I HAD DONE BEFORE TELLING ME TO DO THEM AGAIN.  NEW
PERSON TO SOME OF THE STUFF, BUT HE SHOULD CERTAINLY HAVE READ ALL THE
POSTS.  UNINSTALL, REINSTALL, DOWNLOAD THIS, DELETE THAT.  RENAME THIS,
INSTALL THAT.  RUN CCLEANER...ALREADY HAD BUT DID IT AGAIN.  SO ALSO RAN
AVG, SPYBOT, AND MALWARE.  RESTORE COMPUTER BACK TO BEFORE THIS ALL
OCCURRED, BUT THE ONLY DATE OLDER THAN THE ONES INVOLVING THE INCIDENT
WAS FROM 2O13 AND I WAS NOT ABOUT TO LOSE ALL THE PROGRAMS, UPDATES AND
INFO FROM 2 YEARS AGO.  I DID TRY ONE DATE THAT I THOUGHT MIGHT BE RIGHT
BEFORE BUT IT WAS NOT AND IT MADE MY FOLDERS DISAPPEAR AGAIN IN
INCREDIMAIL SO I DID A RESTORE BACK TO TODAY'S DATE, SO DID IT TWICE. 
THIS TOOK ME HOURS.  THOSE SCANS ARE NOT QUICK, ESPECIALLY NOT ON A
COMPUTER THAT IS LOADED TO THE GILLS.  AND THE MORE THEY ASKED ME TO DO,
MIXED WITH ALL I HAD ALREADY DONE MADE ME MORE THAN CONFUSED.  I AM
AFRAID I AM MISSING THE POINT OF NO RETURN.  SO BARE WITH ME AS I GO
OVER THE EDGE. 
TELL MIKE I HOPE HE HAS A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY...AND TELL HIM, HOW COULD
HE NOT, BEING MARRIED TO YOU.  LOL.  I WILL PROBABLY NOT BE ON TOMORROW
AS IT WILL BE LATE WHEN I GET HOME FROM FAUSKA'S.
LOVE AND HUGS,  LOU ANN
PS...ANY NEWS FROM MARY ANN?

and Happy Birthday Mike.

Last night we had a Birthday Eve party in the library with 21 year old Glenlivit Scotch and appetizers instead of a meal!  Life is short.  Ya gotta shake things up from time to time. 


I gave him a tray of Lobster Tartlets as one of his Birthday Gifts (lol).  Lower left ~ Lobster in a creamy sherry sauce, Lobster with cheese and chives (creamy marscapone and parmesan with chives), and Lobster with Risotto (Arborio rice in a creamy base with mushrooms)  All in a lovely puffed pastry.  You take it directly from the freezer to the oven and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.   I served half of them, and saved half of them for later ~ maybe Christmas Eve.

We picked up some appetizers at BJ's Brew Pub to accompany them.  Clockwise, bottom right: Avacado Egg Rolls (delicious but way too hot for me, and even too hot for Mike this time); top right ~ Chicken Pot stickers with ginger sauce; top left ~ Crispy Fried Artichokes, sprinkled with parmesan and served with lemon garlic aioli

We finished with a slice of Cherry Pie!  Happy Birthday Eve!


Today, presents and Complimentary dinner at The Keg, then home for Birthday Cake (Boston Cream Pie) and coffee, and maybe a wee sip of 100 year old Grand Marnier if we're in the mood.

I really wish I could help you.   I'm sure you have all of your files backed up to protect them, but other than that I can't think of anything you haven't mentioned.  Not that I know half of what you have already tried. What a nightmare.

Try to forget it all and have a really good time with your friends!  You need an escape!

Big hugs,

Dorothy

The last day of August ~ kind of hard to believe, isn't it.

Yesterday afternoon we were all dressed and ready to go out to dinner, but Mike was having a terrible pain in his hip.  I gave him some Advil and we thought we'd wait a little while and see what happened, but it didn't get better quickly.  We decided that going just because we had planned the outing would not result in a fun evening, but a rather miserable one, so we stayed home and had a frozen mini quiche for dinner.  By that time, the pain was gone and we had his birthday cake, and coffee, and then opened presents.  Since a picture is worth 1000 words, and I posted lots of pictures, I don't think I need to say more.

It seems that lately every time I say "we are going to do such and such tonight" ~ we don't.  lol  Soooo, I won't say anything about what we MIGHT do tonight, and I'll tell you about it in the morning.  Ha.

I hope you had a great time with your friends.

Now, august is at an end.   See you, in September ~~
