Finally back to blogging with a new laptop computer and a beautiful new blog (thanks Emily of the Blog Fairy). First I was away on vacation . I went to Wells, Maine. I need to see the ocean at least once a year. We had beautiful weather and the shopping (of course) was fantastic. Our Canadian dollar is close to being at par with the American dollar. No complaint from me! When I came back my computer was sick, completly invaded by a virus. I had a technician look at it. He could not help me. May you rest in peace my old Dell! Then it was time to go shopping for a new computer. I purchased a Toshiba laptop. I'm still getting used to it. I miss my big screen but it runs much faster. So I hope you forgive my long absence. I cant wait to go visit my on-line friends. Here I come!
