Four years ago, I bought an upgrade to Windows 7 on sale
from Microsoft.The plan was to install 7
on my then-computer, after I beefed up its hardware.It soon became apparent that it would be a
waste of money to spend any on an obsolete machine.The Windows 7 upgrade went into the closet
and wasn’t heard from again.
I recently moved and the upgrade resurfaced.Coincidentally, I bought a used computer
after my old one crashed just before my move. It was offered with either Vista
or XP installed.I chose XP.The new used machine can handle 7.
Microsoft support for XP ends this April.I’m going to have to reformat this hard drive
again, because I interrupted the installation of a program.After I reinstall XP, I’ve been thinking
about upgrading to 7.
I have zero knowledge about 7.So I was wondering if those of you have used
it would give me your opinion of it.I
really like XP and have no problems with it.How does 7 compare to XP?

Colorado becomes the first state in the nation to allow recreational
marijuana sales beginning Jan. 1, a budding pool of 'potrepreneurs' have
high hopes for an influx of out-of-town pot tourists.
"Colorado Highlife Tours,
which promises 'fun, affordable and discreet' cannabis-centered
excursions, is expanding its private and public limo and bus tours.

Dec. 31, 18 retail marijuana stores in Denver had received licenses to open on the first of the year and
two dozen other marijuana-related businesses that had met the city's
licensing requirements were awaiting approval. Beyond the Mile High
City, more than 25 other towns and cities will allow medical marijuana businesses to start adding or transitioning to retail marijuana sales on Jan. 1."
"Recently, The Journal Times ran an article; Downtown Racine Corp. drives toward fundraising goal, that
seemed to cause a considerable amount of confusion concerning the
difference between the DRC (Downtown Racine Corporation) and BID #1.
The DRC is not BID#1 – The DRC is a 501(c)(3) Corporate Business where membership is voluntary. BID #1 is organized and ruled according to Wisconsin Statute 66.1109."
I hate the light from CFL bulbs. I bought one for 12 bucks or so and it burned out after 6 months. Great cost savings, right? Was I supposed to bring it back, with no receipt, and tell them it burned out early? I replaced it with a regular 60 watt bulb and it's worked for years.
I know this is do-gooder legislation. All that ever does is foul up our lives. If everybody suddenly switched to these bulbs, do you think the power companies would let their profits dwindle? No, they'll just raise the rates or find some other way to extort the money from us. Every time that the government gets involved in private enterprise, it results in a mess. And who pays for the messes that the government makes? Do the people who make the messes have to clean them up? No, we do. Over and over and over.
Hello, my frostbit brothers and sisters!How are you?I know, the same as last week and the week before: cold.We’ve been getting arctic blasts
regularly.I hope the new year scares
off the chilly weather.
Happy New Year!My,
how the time flies when you’re not having fun.2013 appears to have been a stinker for a lot of folks who won’t miss it
when it’s gone.Here’s to the hope for a
better year in 2014!I raise a toast to
my fellow Irregulars and the future!May
health and happiness be yours!Bottoms
Our stentorian Green Bay Packers have given us even more
reason to celebrate.They defeated the ignominious
Chicago Bears this Sunday past to win the NFC Northern Division Championship.They did so with the aid of the ever-manly
Mr. Aaron Rodgers, who is not gay, but it wouldn’t matter if he was.This coming Sunday, our Green and Gold Gladiators
take on the effeminate San Francisco
49ers in a wild-card playoff game.Talk
about gay: a team of muscular, sweaty men from San
I say more?Clobber them, Packers, and
their mincing ways!Show then what real
he-men can do!
I don’t have any formal New Year’s resolutions.My general hope is to increase my wealth
while taking care of my health.Of
course, as a service industry, psychics are dependent upon their customers, who
in turn are dependent upon their jobs or other sources of income.When those jobs go away and those sources of
income dry up, psychics are liable to “go away,” too.
When economic times are bad, many people turn to their
psychics first in hopes of receiving personal predictions of prosperity.This causes a slight surge in our business,
but if things don’t improve quickly, people stop seeking psychic help and turn
to booze and drugs instead.I wish
whatever secret society runs the world would give us a break economically.Leave a few crumbs for a working gal.
My predictions for 2014:
My predictions for the Irregulars:
Thank you for starting off your New Year with me.I’m feeling the love.I hope you feel it, too.
"Aaron Rodgers is gay and has considered coming out, a rumor floating around the internet is now claiming.
"The Green Bay Packers quarterback just returned from injury to lead his team to an unlikely playoff berth, defeating the Chicago Bears on Sunday to claim the NFC North. But while his play on the field gained headlines, rumors that originated on the internet saying the Super Bowl MVP is secretly gay were gaining steam and stealing headlines."
It's the start of a new year and a great opportunity to make some changes in your life to make you a better person. What's that? You're perfect already? Maybe you should resolve to be less arrogant. (or less ignorant)
People usually fail to keep their resolutions because they make them too big or general. Keep them small and manageable. Don't say "I'm going to try to be a better person". That's too general. Choose a few specific things that would make you a better person.
Write them down.
Keep them small and manageable.
Set specific goals.
Set different start times. You don't have to start them all on Jan. 1st.
Here are mine:
1: I need to lower my cholesterol. I don't have a number goal yet. And I'm still working on my low fat menu. I need to find out what's a realistic expectation.
It's around 200 right now. Is it possible to get it down 50 points by the middle of April?
I don't want to take drugs.
Several different types of fat, numbers and reading labels has me more confused that ever.
I've been searching for an "example" of a low cholesterol diet. One that says specifically what to eat, not one that says "eat lower fat meat". Lower that what? If you have one, please pass it along.
2: I resolve to clean and organize half of my basement by the first of April. Starting Jan 15th, three hours a week.
I have WAY too much stuff. I'm not a hoarder but I do hang on to stuff just because I "might" need it or could use it some day.
3: To continue #2, I resolve to clean and organize the upstairs of my garage by the end of June.
Starting April 1st, at least three hours a week.
4: Say NO! Unless it's an emergency. It's seems that people are always asking me for help. When I help them, I don't get MY stuff done. "I'm sorry, I'm really busy and just don't have the time." That should do it.
That's enough for now. If I accomplish my goals early I can always add more.
Don't worry, I'm still here. I hit a wicked funk that I got stuck in. It was hard, and horrible. I had to take a step back from many things and work out whatever was going on (even I didn't know what it was). Bottom line, if you're a parent, and think the things you do won't affect your kids years and decades later, think again and be very careful how you behave. I thought I buried the monster, that was my past, only to have stupid incidents over the summer plant a seed that grew into a mess months later. Hopefully my mind will put it to rest, once and for all, and it won't come back to bite me again next year. I missed me, and didn't like who was left. I think I'm back and better than ever. The past can bite me, I'm so done with it! Ok, that's my little rant, all better now! :)
My birthday present actually came from this store!
(I forget now, we found it back in the summer
and I have 2 more weeks before I get to see it again!)
Stop in often, as the items are rotating all the time, lots of new stuff coming in.
Some things are quite a walk down memory lane. Everything is so nice, and clean and pretty!
They've been in business for 2 years, as of November 1st.
Their winter hours are -
Sat. 10-5 and Sun. 10:30-3
The 3 words Margie chose to describe her store -
It DOES feel like home, when you walk in. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. So many charming items, and the variety is great.
One common thing I found in talking to the downtown businesses, is that not only do they want to see their own businesses thrive, they want that of each and every one of the business neighbors. Wouldn't it be wonderful for our downtown to be THE place to go? There is no reason it can't be. They just need our support and word of mouth. Please come check out these wonderful treasures!

"The famed Bald Eagles from Decorah, Iowa are back on their nest and ready to start a new family! World famous and live streamed via the internet by the Raptor Resource Center, anyone can view the parents raise their eaglets from egg to fledglings from the comfort of their homes. Using infrared cameras and microphones, the eagles can be seen around the clock during the nesting season, which starts in January or February and runs till June."
