Meet My New Internet Ride!

"The temple bell stops, but I hear the sound coming out of the flowers."


It's been a busy week. Alan and I decided to purchase a new computer... finally. I was reluctant, in that we had a little money in the bank, and it felt nice to not have to worry for a change. It has been a really oppressive time since Governor Schwarzenegger imposed his forced furlough program. But with the tax return, we have a little bit of breathing room, even with the computer purchase. :) Life is much easier with the new friend, now I will have to think of a name for her.

Here are her vital statistics...

Gateway 4300-15E
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
AMD Phenom 11x4 810 quad-core processor
DVD+/ - RW SuperMulti

I have to say, so far I am very impressed. This is the quietest computer we have owned so far, and it didn't contain all kinds of unnecessary programs. So far I am LOVING my new toy! :)

"Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate."


LOL. Sometimes I just have too much time on my hands!

Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #77: The Cone Zone

"Experience is the best teacher.You know, ever since I was a little girl I knew that if you look both ways before you cross the street, you will see a lot more then traffic

-Mae West

Traffic, we all have to deal with it in one way or another, and there always seem to be CONE ZONES somewhere amongst it all. This week, show me something CONE ZONE related. Men at work, traffic cones all lined up, anything CONE ZONE related. But please folks, take your photos from a proper place and distance as to not put yourself at risk, or interfere with those who are working within the zone. SAFETY FIRST! Be mindful of the laws in your state.

Extra Credit: Show me a picture of a traffic sign... any traffic sign.

This Monday Photo Shoot assignment closes next Sunday evening at 9:00 PM ET. Please submit your entries by that time by uploading your photo to your blog, journal or website, and then comeback here with the link that goes back to your entry. The link you leave must be to an entry which is specific to this week's assignment. A general link to your site will not work, and HYPERLINKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED. Also, please include a link in your entry to this photos shoot assignment so that other folks can find us and participate with us. The more the merrier... right? ;)

EMPS: Happy Valentine's Day!

From For Ellipsis

"Love, a wildly misunderstood, although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise, and lips to pucker."


Happy Valentine's Day!
