Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays – at least as much as possible during this pandemic season.

I will be back to posting regular articles soon.

Until then I wish everyone a Happy New Year and a better year ahead.

Galveston 2020

Taking a break in beautiful Galveston. It’s a bit stormy today, but it’s been beautiful most of our visit.

My husband and I have thought of retiring to Galveston, but we’re not sure if it ruin it as a getaway place for us. We’re pretty sure it wouldn’t as we love the beach so much. Still, when I am missing it there are some great web cams on the Island. You can find them here: Galveston Webcams

Here are some pictures from my visit:

I will be back to regular posting (such as it is) by the end of next week, I hope. If you have followed me at all, you know I’m a bit of a slow writer. 🙂

It’s Been A Week…

Yellow Burn

My laptop’s battery began a meltdown last week and I’m just now getting back up to speed with a new computer.

So, what happened? I opened up the browser and noticed a yellow burn – the color on my frowny face above – on the white background. I had no idea what was causing it so I Googled “yellow burn surface.” I don’t know what’s worse – a search result which comes up with nothing or one where your problem comes up right on top of the search list goes on and on and on.

It turns out this has been a problem for Surface Pro laptops for some time due to the lithium batteries used in them. Once the yellow burn mark appears you can kiss the whole thing goodbye. If you are within the warranty you can get the computer replaced, but I am out of luck.

I was fortunate in that I caught the problem before I lost any files. But, it was a major disappointment because the computer was less than three years old.

But now I have a new laptop. It’s an Acer workhorse – nothing fancy. And I should be back with new posts very soon.

Website News – Topic Outline

I have completed a rough outline on one of the Topic Pages:

A Simple Guide To Being Human In a Complex Age

In a time where we are overloaded with information, I try to sort the different approaches to how to live as an individual in a divided community. How is society ordered? Where do I fit in? Where do I look for guidance?  

It will be updated from time to time as I complete the sections and link to the appropriate posts. I hope that by doing it this way, my readers will see that my seemingly random thoughts have a direction.
