Windows Does What the Atlantic Couldn’t.

I’m returning to Dauntless in a few days.  I have spent my time in NYC getting the final pieces for the heater installation, but I’m leaving with a little cloud over me.

Why?  A number of reasons:

It started with my visit to our roof top apartment in Manhattan.  It’s been rented since August and the renter has been great, but the plants did far more poorly this winter than the winter before, which was just as cold, if not even worse.  I think it was that the plants suffered last summer, and therefore did not start the winter in the condition they should have.

Then it was on to the next project, the upgrade of our home computer.

Well, I could cross the Atlantic, but even after a week of trying, I still have not been able to get my 7 year old desktop computer to run Windows 7.  It had been running XP.  I spent three days trying to get it to run XP again. No luck.  Then finally, yesterday, I bowed to the inevitable and put Vista on it.

Yes, I got Vista to work, but at the cost of having to reinstall all my old programs, etc.

Stupid.  I should have left it alone and in another year or two replaced it.

I also would like to start our summer cruise in three weeks, yet there seems so much to still do.

Lastly, I would have liked to see a few more friends while here; but it was not to be, hopefully in the fall.

So, I’m left with this sense of not having accomplished much of what I had wanted for this trip.  Like having a pebble in your shoe; irritating, but not deadly.

Let me get to it.
