Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone!

Brooks and Linda Lee are coming up for dinner and driving back home tomorrow. It will be fun having them. Norma is busy baking a stuffed salmon (we don't eat meat) and we bought a pumpkin pie and whipped cream!

The failing desktop computer is on hold. I am getting help from RV, the computer expert on the Escapees forum. I am going to transfer the operating system onto a different hard drive and then convince the computer to use that drive to boot from. This is going a little beyond my expertise level but RV has done this many times and is a good teacher. He has more confidence in me than I do.


  1. What do you stuff the salmon with?

    (My goodness, if this won't convince you to get a Mac, nothing will. You old folks are stubborn! ;) *ducks*)

  2. Bread stuffing, same as a turkey.

  3. Yep, good idea to move the setup to an external hard drive, then you can back it up easily and run it from pretty much any computer if you need to. Says the woman who bought 2 1T external HDs and a 32G flash drive last time I was in the US. And I just moved my best friend from a MAC (that got stolen) back to Windows. Basically so I can provide tech support for her (as can her husband and son now she is not MAC). Now Linux, that would be a step up...

  4. Happy Salmon Day!!!

    Goodluck with the puter stuff
