Good news

After the technology rant and I was unable to post here from my Mac, I couldn't send e-mails when ATT/DSL "decided" over night to "upgrade" its home page. Spent 1-1/2 hours with tech support; the last utterance of the techie was "Firefox." Great, I thought, that should be a nightmare. Meanwhile I made an appointment to have my OS upgraded, G3 fixed, and data transferred. In a moment of bravery, I downloaded Firefox. Problem solved instantly, miraculously. Transfer of everything seamlessly. Canceled appointment. Saved money.
And I can post here.


For all the opinions I have, I've found it difficult to get down to brass tacks and make something of this blog.
The political process? Frustrating. I watched the conventions (well, mostly the Democratic one) and looked for something that could make me feel optimistic. Change appears to be the mantra though we know that will be different once the new president butts up against Congress.
