New Computer


August 14, 2010

Hello my friends, well I wasn't having enough trouble with Blogger so I decided to purchase a new laptop. Oh yeah.....why not? I might as well learn it all at once. I just didn't stop at my laptop, I also purchased a printer/scanner/copier and a Sirius radio for my living room and my car. Honestly for 3 days I have had boxes all over my living room as I read and re-read manuals. I am not a techie at all.....don't know why I even attempt to do what I do. It only took me 2 hours to find a spot for the antenna.....errrrrrrrrr
I had one given to me by my friend and when she mentioned her son was looking for one now I automatically said take this to him and I will get myself one, well she didn't want too but I insisted. I hardly watch TV now instead I am listening to talk radio, it is so much fun. Where do they get these guys, it is like "what is your favorite day of the week, the guy says Friday and he automatically says, your saying you don't like Sunday's, the guy tries to explain and he says you just said Friday was your favourite day." I want to be a talk show host, they have so much fun interpreting words.......so look out for "On Air with Bernie" okay.

I downloaded my pictures from my camera into Picasa as I always do, but Picasa is on my other laptop. I have to figure out how to keep my album all together. Think I will download them to a CD then upload them on this computer. Half the time I don't know what I'm doing and just back into it when everything turns out right. Thanks Di, your instructions are really good. I think I am going to like this new editor once I figure all the buttons out. The sample showed a stats button on dashboard but it didn't show up when I actually arrived here. Oh well it is wait and see time anyway.....gosh only knows where this post will actually show up. I just  checked preview and it is a blank page. Honestly I have to get a life, all I have been doing is playing on machines for 3 days.

My friend Terry was in for a couple of days and had her procedure done, I am happy to say she did excellent and everything is fine.....phew! Her and I did all the shopping on Monday.

I was able to show you a picture of my hanging basket taken today, I wanted to show the first day I hung it so you all could see the difference but that picture is in another program in another computer. Gosh this is fun.

Dr. John says I have to walk 10,000 steps a day, well I got a pedometer and honestly on my best and busiest days I am under 2000 steps. Trust me between all these new machines I have walked all over the place plus I went for a 45 minute walk yesterday. Still can't get close to what he wants me do. I thought it would be easy but I also thought I took more steps obviously. Am going to try and crank it up next week.

Sorry I didn't respond to all your comments, (I so love them) but half the time I wasn't sure where I was or what computer I was on......at times I even made myself laugh trying to undo what I did.  I think I have everything under control now or hope so anyway. Life, especially blogging, is going to be fun again....yes it is I am sure.

I do hope you all have a great week, sending you all ......... many, many hugs.

Oh, Bernie, even I (being the techi that I am) took awhile to get used to having two computers (my desktop and my laptop) and trying to figure out the system for my photos...but I have it now.

Glad to have you back on a roll and hope it all comes together for you...running smoothly as you learn it all :)

Wanda..... said...

Bernie, you weren't kidding when you said your hanging flower was enormous! But tell me you are kidding about talk radio, those guys make me want to put them in time out...the arguing! Herhusband listens to some! Glad you can post photos now, Bernie. Wished we lived close enough to walk together. It's 852 steps up and back from Alivia's mailbox, I try to do it morning and evening, every little bit helps. The storm I mentioned in the email brought awfully heavy rain!
♥...Wanda

Donna said...

Bernie, I use a desktop (Amber's) and my laptop and I have to remember what I have on each one ... confusing!
I can't wait for your "On Air with Bernie" ... I will listening in :)
Your hanging basket is gorgeous!
Big Hugs,
Donna

Cinner said...

HiBernie, glad you are getting all the boxes organized,,,,I have been having some issues here, maybe it is time I need a new one, lol. I will call you for help. Your hanging basket still looks beautiful. Today I pulled 3 big black garbage bags of flowers that came down in a storm last week. At least it is looking a bit better out there. well have fun with all your doing. hugs to you, enjoy your day.

daylily (Queenmothermamaw) said...

Good for you ole gal. Sometimes I feel intimidated by something I want to learn to do, but it is fun to just charge on. There is always some one in our wonderful cybergroup willing to help out. I want to learn how to do separate pages for different topics. Enjoy

Karin said...

Glad your friend is much improved and you've been out shopping. Fun stuff! My laptop is still at the Apple store and I'm using hubby's big Apple, lol. He is having trouble receiving his e-mails - from his sales on E-bay - and we haven't changed or messed with anything. Can't figure this out. Hubby is a scholar, not a techy, so I'm trying to help as much as I'm able. It's all very frustrating, arghhhhh.

Have a lovely week-end! It was a great day today!

Let me know when On the Air with Bernie will be on! Love the idea! You sound like a fun person and I need those in my life!

Bernie said...

Heather, I now have a desktop, 2 laptops and 2 printers.....I think it is time I Shared with others but honestly have important data on each one.....will take me a while but I will bet use to it.
.........:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Wanda, I would so love to live closer to be able to walk together each day, I love how you know the number of steps to Alivia's mail box. Yes,just fooling about talk radio, I am just amazed these people get paid so much to sound so stupid. Everyone knows everything when in reality no one knows anything. One needs a lot of patience as well as a good sense of humor......I do enjoy BBC and also CBC as well as many others. We had a huge storm the other night as well, my e-mail server was down for over 24 hours but they are crediting us $10.00 on next billing.......big hugs to Alivia.....:-)

Bernie said...

Hi Donna, only fooling about the talk show, just enjoying my new stations. I have even better pictures but will have to bring them on this computer unless I e-mail them to myself....have a great Sunday sweetie....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi cinner, that storm was something else, did you loose your e-mail, Telus called on Wednesday saying we would be getting a $10.00 credit bill next month....my hanging baskets have done well, I think its because they are protected under the eves but the others are not so great....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Peg, I have no choice but to forge on.....I learned if I want to get something done I just have to do it, it usually works out pretty well. Have a great Sunday my friend......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Karen, isn't it fun getting use to a new computer.....no I won't start a talk show, I'd probably would end up getting addicted to it as I have blogging. Have a great Sunday.....:-) Hugs

GrandmaK said...

Sounds like you are pretty organized now! Good for you! Cathy

Brian Miller said...

congrats on the new computer! and your hanging basket looks wonderful...i wonder how many steps i take in a day..hmm....

The Retired One said...

Wow, Bernie, you went on a buying spree..but I bet you will be glad when winter comes to have your new toys.
Don't worry about answering comments...be free and just do what you want for a while..it feels really good to do that now and then.
Glad your friend's procedure turned out good so you won't have to worry anymore....
and I am so happy you are having a fun summer.
Hey, if you want that pedometer to go up in numbers, c'mon down to the U.P and we will go for a hike in the woods...ha

Bernie said...

Cathy, I think I am okay now hopefully anyway. Have a wonderful Sunday my friend....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Brian, great to have computers but not so good when I don't have the knowledge......with 2 children I would think you do a lot of walking......:-) Hugs

Diana said...

Hi Bernie!
I am so glad that you got the new computer! Did you get the 17 in screen? I love mine. I can't understand why your preview didn't show up?
Jake listens to Sirius all day long while in the truck. He loves Radio Classics. I like what ever music I'm in the mood for!
I loved your flower basket, it was huge!
I'm sure that you'll get the photos figured out soon. You sound so excited, I could hear it in your post!! Love Di ♥

Garnetrose said...

I still have problems with my laptop. I am often hitting a key I am nt familiar with and last week I hit the number lock key and it took me three hours to figure out why all I could type was numbers on it. The flowers are lovely.

10,000 steps is alot. Good luck with that one.

Gail said...

HI BERNIE

I so applaud your courage with the new lap top and uploads and downloads and transferring and CD's, and my goodness - you are brave. And I love the idea of you being a "A Talk Radio Host" - Oh yes!!!
Your hanging basket is beautiful, just like you.
And good news about your friend's procedure. phew.

Love to you my friend
Gail
peace and hope.....

Bernie said...

Joan I really wasn't planning on shopping as much as I did, it just happened. I knew I was due for a new computer and my printer is 11 years old so I guess it was time.
How are you my friend.....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Diana, my new one is 15.5 inches but I have a 17" on my old one and I use it to watch movies in bed.
It is nice to accomplish some things I had no idea I could do. How are you? E-mail me okay as I am building up my address book again. Love you.......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Garnet you are so precious, I am sorry but I LOL when I ready about your 3 hours with the number key, we would work well together. Yes, 10,000 is a lot of steps for sure, not sure how I'll ever manage it. Be well my friend......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Gail, I hope you are doing well sweetie, really enjoyed your e-mail today my friend. All these technical things can be a headache but honestly just back into getting things right, I am pretty good as long as I have a manual to read......:-) Hugs

Cherrie said...

Everything looks fine so it worked out!

Bernie said...

Cherrie I do think I am on the better side of it now, it was touch and go for a while. Have a great Sunday.....:-) Hugs

Joanna Jenkins said...

Take your time with all the new electronics-- it can be overwhelming, but this posts looks great and so does your gorgeous flower basket-- Is this the one you mentioned the other day? It's perfect.

10,000 is a lot of steps but a good goal. I doubt I do even half of that in a day. Maybe I'll get a pedometer too and find out!

Good luck with the new laptop!
jj

Loren said...

If you are on talk radio by golly then I will be listening :)
You are cracking me up today! So glad you are having fun with all your machines and I am beginning to think you are far more techie than you realize ;)

10,000 steps a day ~ WOW I would say you are doing pretty good! Did you ask your Dr. if he has ever done that many steps in a day LOL

Have a wonderful weekend my dear friend :)

Bernie said...

Joanna,if you get a pedometer I would be anxious to learn how many steps you take a day....I just can't see myself ever reaching 10,000.
Yes this is my front door basket, I don't think this picture does it justice but it is lovely, my baskets did well but the others not so great.
Have a great Sunday.....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Loren, I even cracked myself up this week, it was unbelievable really and sometimes so funny.
I beginning to think a bloggie radio station could be fun with all the different personalities we have in our community.
Have a great Sunday....:-) Hugs

Nora said...

I hope you can keep it all straight, Bernie, but knowing you, you'll figure it all out in the end. You are the eternal optimist, after all. Things always do work out for you. You certainly try hard enough and put your heart and soul into a project. I hope you can get your Picasa web album on your new laptop too. It shouldn't be too hard.

Hugs!

Bernie said...

Hi Nora, I have put 3 days into this stuff and I need a bit of a break but only need to do a couple of more things before it is all completed. How are you my friend, wishing you a great Sunday....Hugs

Valerie said...

Hi Bernie, first of all let me say I think you're doing great. Don't worry too much about what's on which computer, it will all be there when you're ready to look for it. I'm fortunate enough to have a remote plug-in hard drive onto which EVERYTHING goes. Thus, when I change laptops I don't have any worries, I just plug it in and VOILE! Even though you struggle you still manage to write about it in humorous fashion. Hugs for a brave girl...smiles.

shadowlands said...

A step counter! What a great idea. I might just get myself one. I am going on a diet, so will need to exercise properly. I have really let things go this last couple of years. My holicay photos were of another woman, but then I realised it was me!!! Aaaagh.
You sound pretty technical to me, Bernie, and you look mechanically minded too, sitting behind the wheel of that sports car. Well done!

oops! nearly forgot the (((hug)))

Twain12 said...

enjoy your new laptop...i keep my picture on photobucket and flickr, this way i can access them from any computer...doesn't picasa have online storage too ?
I love the hanging basket, what a lovely color.As for the walking i say do what you can :)
Hugs

Vicki Lane said...

Good luck with the new stuff! A new computer is always a challenge.

Donna said...

Hi Bernie, Your hanging plant is lovely. I have just ferns hanging
but I have lots of flowering plants in pots around the yard.

I know what you mean about the computer problems...I have those also. I have to call on my sons to help me out. (my daughters are just as lame as me on the computer!)

But, I am glad you are back. I enjoy reading you and let me know when your talk radio spot is up and running! (wink)

Anvilcloud said...

Someone told me to get "Serious" radio, but I'd rather not. I need to stay lighthearted.

Jill said...

Are you sure your pedometer is working? I usually make my 10000 steps just in my normal routine. I've tried some pedometers that don't calculate every step...which sounds like you have. A 5 minute walk registers about 500 steps on mine,so you should have register about 4500 just for that 45 min walk alone!

Teresa said...

Wow Bernie...look at you! I think you are a techi! : ) ((((HUGS))) T

Ashley ~ said...

Congrats on the new computer*!!! As frustrating as these things are, they sure are fun to have. A window to the world and of course, all of our friends live here. (smile) Have a GREAT day pretty lady*! ((((Bernie)))) -Ashley

Holly, the Old Western Gal said...

I like the SWEET talk radio, too -- but sometimes I get myself into a tizzy "talking back" to some of the more obnoxious hosts -- lol -- congrats on all your new tech stuff!

Tranquility Speaks said...

So glad to see a picture first thing on your blog Bernie. Technology sure is intimidating! Ask me! I am in the thick of it :-) And I am lost. Seriously lost!

Great to see your sense of humor despite all odds. One thing I am trying hard to pick from you

Tranquility Speaks said...

Congratulations on your new computer and I find your hanging baskets gorgeous :)

I am very happy you are walking as much as possible. 30 minutes a day will take good care of you :-)

Bernie said...

Val I have a hard drive too, I bought it last year and put it away until I got USB cord, I must bring it out....thank you for reminding me.
Have a great day sweetie...:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Ros, it is good to have a pedometer just to check. I thought I took many more steps a day than what it is showing though. Have a great day....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Twain12, I love your suggestion on walking...lol
I hope to finish everything up today. What is the weather like down home. Have a great Sunday.
......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Vicki, there are keys on this laptop I have never seen before so yes it is a challenge....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Donna, I wish the rest of my plants were as nice as my hanging baskets, I do love it.
Have a wonderful Sunday....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

AC, gotta love your sense of humor. Thanks for the chuckle. Enjoy your Sunday....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Jill, you could be right. Thank you for the guideline, now I have a number to compare with. I don't think it is working right but my friend said it was so.....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Terri, no way am I a techie. If you could of seen me reading these manuals and it took me 3 days and I still have things to do. Oh well it will all get down. How are the puppies doing.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Ashley, we are so blessed to have our friends here aren't we, I love blogging. So glad you are feeling better, enjoy today and every day.
......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Holly, I do the same thing. I have discovered it is not news though but opinions so I separate the two and feel my opinion is just as important as theirs....lol
Have a great day sweetie...:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Stillness, how are you doing? Yes I am slowly making my way around the new set up. I will be over to visit shortly sweetie....:-) Hugs

My Aimless Infatuation said...

Bernie,You are such a sweetheart and I so enjoy your post's. You are more of a techie than I am because I still use my old editor,afraid to try the new one. Have a great week.

Eddie Bluelights said...

Well done about solving the computer problems.
I am getting a new computer soon. Mine must be a male because it cannot mult-task and is very slow and can think of only one thing at a time. I am getting a lady computer with a dual core processor and she will be able to handle Eddie much better and keep him in order! LOL.
Problem is she will have a large memory so she will not be able to forget my antics.

Your doctor has demanded by my estimation that you walk about 4.75 miles a day, assuming each step is about 30 inches. Quite an order. Best wishes with it. Just what I need for my legs/feet. Pity we can't stroll together.
Radio is MUCH MUCH better than TV. We can use our imaginations again!!! Would love to try to break in there somehow with short humorous stories.
Speak soon ~ Eddie

Cheryl said...

I am sure you will have all the wires uncrossed/untangled/unplugged all in good time! I dread getting new thingys but I do find I enjoy trying to get it all to work, and when I do, celebrate! Have a wonderful week!

Bernie said...

Aimless, I am far from being a techi but I am feeling much better now that I have everything done except the car radio....just a few more days and that will be done.
Have a great weekend my friend..Hugs

Bernie said...

Eddie. Dr. John based my 10,000 steps on 12 inches each, I think it is far out of my reach but I am going to keep trying. I do love the radio, I get BBC1 which I totally enjoy (especially the accents) Have a great week my friend.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Cheryl, I too get great satisfaction when I accompolish something that I didn't think I could do.....all is just about finished now. Have a great week my friend........:-) Hugs

beth said...

wow...technology overload.....
BUT WOW.....i am amazed by YOU !

Living on Less Money said...

I love my laptop. I'm not much of a tv watcher so I can still sit with hubbins while he is watching tv and I can 'surf'. :-) I'm doing that right now.

Bernie said...

beth please don't be amazed, I totally don't deserve it...have a great week......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Living on less money - I don't find TV has many good shows anymore, I much prefer the radio.
Have a great week.....:-)Hugs

TechnoBabe said...

"On Air With Bernie" sounds like a lot of fun to me. I would listen and I do not watch any TV. We don't have cable or any way to watch TV, we do not like TV. Isn't that cool that both hubby and I don't watch TV? I think you hit it on the head when you listened to talk radio, you "hear" more when it is radio I think and you catch nuances that are slipped by on TV. I picture with all the boxes in the living room. All that would be too much for me all at one time I think. You are a brave girl!!

Gerry's Soap N Stuff said...

Hi Bernie. My name is Gerry, new follower. I laughed nearly all through your post. I can relate to all of it..haa. Sometimes, on my laptop, I can't find a file I am looking for and then it hits me. It is in my desktop. I have to get up and go there. grrr - (I realize it is good for me to get up). I go to my desktop and add it to my flash drive and take it back to my laptop...ha. I wanted to make a public folder on my network so everything would be there, accessible to both computers. I don't know how. I don't know how to make such a beautiful round ball of flowers like yours either.
Gerry ~ South East USA. ps: I will be tuned in for On air with Bernie!

glnroz said...

If you, Ms. Bernie, were "on the air",,, i would buy a sirus radio myself..lol,, glenn

Bernie said...

Oh Bernie, how brave you are to try all these new things. I must confess that I get help whenever I post pictures especially. My pictures will not go where I want them to go and I don't know how to fix it. Either Julie or Jim fixes it for me. But don't tell anyone!!!

Thank you for your kind words and all your visits. So far Iam doing O.k. but Jim leaves this week and then we shall see how I do.

Bernie said...

How great are you.....no TV in your house, love it. Okay I'm beginning to think we need a blogger radio statiob (perhaps there already is one) it would be fun wouldn't it.......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Gerry, welcome to my blog. Oh my Gerry I was in a real mess here for a while now I just have to hook up the car radio but I want to wash the car first. All worked out well, especially presetting the radio, which was easy, instead of having to go through hundreds of channels to get to where I want.
Will be over to visit soon.....Hugs

Bernie said...

Glenn, wouldn't that be fun, have a great week my friend.....Hugs

Bernie said...

Bernie, I have had you on my mind all week.....your going to have to hang on sweetie, and sometimes it will be by your fingernails but you will do it. Walk, blog, play with Dodger, just keep busy. No way to deal with grief except by going through it, don't let it become the elephant in the room. We love you.....:-) Hugs

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Hi Hon,

Just stopped by to check out your blog...BTW, it's awesome!

I enjoyed the post and will eb back to visit often!

BTW, I'm almost back at the porch! Keep reading.

Hugs
Hawk

Victor S E Moubarak said...

When the doctor said I should walk 10,000 steps a day I put the pedometer on the dog's collar. When I showed it to the doctor after a week he was well pleased with my progress!

God bless.

Bernie said...

Hi Hawk, thanks for stopping by. I love your western stories, they are fun to read so of course I will be be back to keep reading.
.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Victor, what a great idea, now if only I had a dog....:-)Hugs

sarah said...

I love that you're not afraid to jump into new stuff...way to go!!! Have fun with it. You totally inspire. ☺

arlee bird said...

Sounds like instruction manual overload to me. That's a lot of stuff to get all at once. I listen to a lot of talk radio-- maybe too much.

Tossing It Out

Rebecca said...

The hanging basket is beautiful!

Do you have Canadian talk shows or get 'em from the U.S.?

Hope you continue to bravely attack the new computer and programs. Sometimes I just write a few key words into google and find helpful information, too. Sometimes THERE more than the "help" tabs...

Keep increasing your steps, Bernie. I'm trying to, too.

It's sure good to have you back!

Bernie said...

Hi Sarah, I'm not brave at all. I just have no choice so I just forge ahead and hope for the best. Have a great week.....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Arlee Bird, you have a great sense of humor and yes I think the term manual over load fits me well especially last week. I really enjoy talk radio especially when I can talk back to it.....lol....Hugs

Bernie said...

Rebecca, my basket is really bigger than what the picture shows, I have one at the front and back (both the same) and they really are nice, the others not so well this year.
I get mostly American channels, England, BBCl and Canada CBC. I have just finished listening to Barbara Walters, I don't think she had anyone on under 80 but oh they were smart ladies.......:-)Hugs

Barb said...

How fun, Bernie - you will really be stimulating brain cells while you learn all the new programs. Ten Thousand steps is 5 miles - you can do it, Bernie! Your hanging basket is so full - it looks like it's on steroids. Have a great week!

Bernie said...

Barb, 5 miles....oh my! Does he really think I can walk 5 miles each day, oh well all I can do is keep trying one step at a time.
Yes my hanging baskets are lovely this year Barb thank you....:-)Hugs

Joey said...

Your plant is beautiful, Bernie!

Have fun with that laptop and the rest of your goodies. I'm so glad you did this for yourself.

I was thinking that your online photos should be there... Just download 'em from the website.

I'm glad you mentioned walking 10,000 steps. It's too hot here yet, and I've fallen off the wagon as far exercise goes. Climb back on!

Joey

Bernie said...

Joey, all has settled down here, I think...at last everything is working and pretty well at the moment.
I hope to be up to 10,000 steps within 4 weeks.....I have neuropathy in my feet which makes walking painful at times....:-) Hugs

Denise said...

Enjoyed the update, love you.

Crystal Mary said...

Gosh Bernie, you sure are having fun. Computers are the greatest way to stay in touch and have lots of magic with friends.
I love that round ball of flowers in your picture, it shows a happy home. Blessing always to you my friend. CML

Sheila said...

Bernie - I've been participating in the Alberta Living Well program - free through Alberta Health. ias it available in Morinville - check with the Health Unit. It's free and twice a week and is offered at our local multiplex. It's very difficult to walk that many steps for sure - i'm going to get a pedometer too. Good luck with everything!

A man called Valance said...

Bernie, you're an inspiration. Beautiful flower basket, too.

Maggie May said...

You are one really determined lady and I really do admire your spunk! All that technical stuff would make me pass out!

I just LOVE that ball of flowers..... thats just what it looks like a flower ball. Brilliant.

I listen to talk radio shows in the night but I think we obviously have different shows.
I value my radio very much and would probably rate it higher than TV.
Maggie X

Nuts in May

Bernie said...

Denise, so glad you are back and everything has worked out well for you yesterday....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Maggie, I do love my hanging baskets this year.
Lately Maggie I have had the radio on most of the day and evening, I much prefer it to the TV except for my sports......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Crystal Mary, I'm not sure it was fun or not but it sure was a challenge. A ball of flowers, now that is different but I do love them.......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Sheila, thank you I will check it out and see if Morinville has that program, may help. Have a good trip home........:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Valance, didn't think you left the cabin to visit but I am so pleased you did. Thank you I love my hanging baskets this year..:-)Hugs

Linda Higgins said...

too funny Bernie! I am so NOT computer savvy and I work on a computer all day long. I bought a back up thingy to put all my pictures on from my computer to "free" up space...I only have over 10,000 pictures..lol I really need to go through them, so, anyway, I can't figure out the darn back-up thingy that is how computer dummy I am LOL. Oh well, I will just keep trying. It will eventually all work out I guess. Isn't is crazy! I think you are an amazing woman "on your own" to do what you do. I only pray that if I am ever in the "on my own" circumstance that I can be as independent as you! love and hugs and smiles!

Debbie(single;complicated) said...

I love that you have all new toys and that you READ the manuals! That is where I go wrong!!...enjoy!!:)

ethelmaepotter! said...

Wow, I'm quite impressed that you're doing all of this "on your own."

I certainly couldn't.

Your flower is magnificent and looks perfect hanging there from the eave.

Lots of luck with all your new equipment and with the new Blogger, too. I still get lost on it sometimes!

Bernie said...

jinsky, I love technology and all of the advantages it brings, but oh the challenges of setting everything up......only can do that once in a while....:-)Hugs

Jackie said...

Hi Bernie,

Congratulations on your new computer! That is fun! 10,000 steps is hard to do. I too, only get around 2,000 unless I do a lot of extra exercise. Good Luck with the new technology!

Jackie

Lori E said...

I highly recommend a memory stick rather than cds. You plug it in and go to "my computer" to see it there. It may be called drive F or something removable. You can just drag and drop your whole file on top of that and it will load onto the memory stick. Then take it and load it onto your new computer.

Bernie said...

Jackie, I don't think this pedometer is working.....who knows. I just keep trying to increase my steps....:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Lori, did you get my e-mail. I think I would like to try a memory stick.....thank you!....:-) Hugs

Ed Pilolla said...

so you're saying you don't like sundays?
that made me laugh loudly. it's so true. the banter is so predictable. i'm embarrassed to say that i listen to those sport shows on the radio (only from time to time:), and they have that adversarial banter the same way, only it's funny to hear sports talk like that and frustrating when it comes to politics, at least for me.

must be fun to have new gadgets to learn and use. boxes all over. like christmas. almost.

have fun:)

Bernie said...

Ed, honestly almost every talk show is the same, not about informing but giving their own opinions. It is so bad it is funny, well to me anyway.
Yes it was like Cristmas for awhile......:-)Hugs

chasity said...

oh i do wish i could get a new computer....mine is always shutting down on me or freezing up.

Hi Bernie

you are a wizard...I think that you can download Picassa free of charge so you can have it on both laptops...and yes use flash drive sticks for backup not CDs they hold oodles more or get a bigger capacity external hard drive device to back up on.
I love the flower ball, rather like a globe...

Happy days

Bernie said...

Sarah, how nice of you to stop by again. I am doing well and hope to have a post up this weekend. Thank you sweetie........:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Janean, I ask Dr. John that same question and he laughed but I don't think he answered my question. Have a great weekend.
.......:-)Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Delwyn, Yes I can download for free, I really like the program as well. I believe I have to thank you for the beautiful art mail I received from Wanda, I think it is beautiful.......:-)Hugs
