well, I haven’t written a blog at the computer for absolutely ages… usually I write them using my phone…

but, yesterday, I got a new toy:-)… an Acer Aspire 5… it is a beauty… still haven’t connected a mouse to it but that will happen when I get home as I have a number there, lol…

I’ve been thinking about acquiring a new laptop for quite a while and finally made the decision yesterday while I had my son-in-law available to help me choose just the right one…

I had anticipated that it would be much more costly, but there were still sales on and we settled on this type… we had to go to two different locations before we found a store that actually had any as they’ve been selling like hotcakes apparently…

then we spent a good part of the evening getting it set up… the important things, like background and lockscreen, lol… also got my website and instagram connected… going to do as much setting up here as possible, while I have my geeky son-in-law to help…

this is only the second laptop I’ve owned… the first one was hacked many years ago and my nephew took it away to be fixed and never brought it back… it was also an Acer… he loaned me a different machine, but the screen started to go so it wasn’t very useful and I’ve only used it for a few particular jobs since then…

one of my retirement goals is to get caught up on technology as I have been too busy to fit time in to check out what’s new and improved out there… I think this is going to be a great asset in that process…

such fun:-)…
