Down But Not Out

Here I am to quickly say:

Windows shut me down, and my PC is being cleaned, I'll have to drop alot of things and reinstall others which I'm saving to PFC.  The Dell geek squad is walking me through the steps.  For free of course.

So I'm at my library using a terminal to let you know.  Since I walk every day I might stop in here to check this and that, but it won't be as often - still I'll come back while waiting for things at home to return to...dare I say it?  NORMAL. 

This weather on the northeast corrider is beautiful, everyone says isn't that great?  I say yes, of course, but a little thought is knawing at my frontal lobe telling me the planet is not acting normally.  This is NOT the correct weather for mid-winter, I should be up to my calves in snow, layered up in clothes.  Yet I can walk outside with nothing but a light sweater and my trusty cane.  So as beautiful as it may be, PLANET EARTH IS NOT BEHAVING AS IT SHOULD and it's too late to go back and UN-invent fuel-injection engines, disposable baby diapers, plastic, all the man-made polymers whose fibers still hang in the atmosphere.  Did you know it takes thousands of years before a Pampers even STARTS to decompose?  Yes, thousands.  

The children of our children's children will be steward's of this ship, and maybe we can make it an easier task for them by doing more now.

I agree, but I bet the majority of us won't until it slams us in the face and it's too late.

Hope you can get back onto your own PC soon again, Cathy. There are some severe extremes your end. One day it's 70F, the next is close to zero. But that IS a continental climate for you.

Amen on those plastic things!!  Why can't these young moms use cloth diapers ?  When my daughter was born that's all there was.  And when my son came along 9 years later, I used Pampers only for trips away from home, like church, etc. He's 36 years old and I still have a couple of his cloth diapers I use for rags.  I've been taking my plastic grocery bags to the store and reusing them each time I shop.  Linda in Washington state

Sorry to hear about your PC... good luck with getting it fixed up.  I used cloth diapers on my son... then he went to daycare.. that was a no no... but at home that is all he got.

Well, I'm sorry you're out of a computer at home, but the walk and fresh air (choke, choke) is doing you good!  

I'm doing my best to recycle, reuse and find new uses for those things I can ... the rest, sadly has to go to the landfill, where it will become a witches brew under-ground until it spews forth to ruin ... everything.

I am experiencing computer woes of my own - I hope your problems pass soon.  Well said on the damage we have done to our precious earth, I was just saying the same thing to Doug about the weather not being quite "right".  He, of course told me I was a loon!!!

Sorry to hear of your computer woes.  And yes the weather patterns are changing.  Not really normal any more.  And other things have changed around here since Rita blew through.  Who knows what was deposited in that wind and from whence it may have come.  -  Barbara

I wish there was a say to rocket our junk and trash to the sun, where is would just burn up in a fizzle.

You're absolutely right Cathy things are not normal and the weather warm for you is unusually cold here in my part of the world. It is raining ever so slightly but enough to get damp. Now it is me wrapped up with laired clothing!

So Windows did what I couldn't do and shut you down! Ever so pleased at that, as I know the outcome as you'll be back on in no time and your blog will still be there for you and for all of us avid readers. God Bless Progress! but not Pampers. ED

It's not acting normal, you are right. The first week of January stayed between 16 and and 25 degrees around here. Now it is up in the 60's??? Yeah, something is wrong...-Missy

hope you get your computer straightened out.,
It can be maddening when you get the BLUE SCREEN of DEATH!!!!

As for the temperature change??
It has been in the 60's here in the southeast and that suits me fine.
If this is global warming....Bring it on.

wow on the pampers geese

sybilsybil45 said...

Oh how I wish we would all take this Global Warming more seriously.  I can't begin to think how things will be in only a few years from now  50 years looking back is no time at all is it...so looking forward we should realise the same.  Thanks for reminding everyone  Love SYbil xx
