Autumn – Why I love this season……

The changing colors on the leaves of course, the sign of summer passing into history.

Fall brings the life back into my gardens re*illuminating my tranquil landscape that I am so proud of. Definitely cooler days, I live in the south, and by July 15, I’m over the hot humid days.

When I can, I look forward to long drives where beautiful multi Autumn colors lining both sides of the road. The thought of that drive brings so much fervent joy to my heart. Most of all I love photographing the colors

Should you upgrade to Windows 10?

I‘m a Windows 7 user, and I love Windows 7.  I’m also a Google Chrome user, and I love Google Chrome.  The combination of the 2, gives me the best computer/online experience, ever.  I’ve been around Windows OS’s for a very long time, and by far Windows 7 is the best in my opinion.  Recently I was notified, by Microsoft,  for a free upgrade to Windows 10.  Windows asked me to register for the upgrade and then they would notify me when it was available.  

My first thought was, that’s unusual, Microsoft never gives operating systems away.  Possibly it has something to do with the tumultuous Windows 8. Btw, I’m one of the very few that likes Windows 8.  I bought an hp laptop with Windows 8 installed, and gave it to my mom for xmas, 2014.  So this upgrade is probably more like a patch rather than an OS installation.  

A few days ago, I noticed the Windows logo on my toolbar next to the volume control, indicating that Windows is ready to upgrade my system to Windows 10. Now the question is, do I upgrade to Windows 10?
Mom is 82, and I figured the new laptop/W-8 would give her a fresh start with brand new simple technology, huge Hard Drive capacity, she loves taking pictures and storing them on her laptop, and relieve her of the prehistoric XP, that was not being supported any longer.  NOT!  Let’s put it this way, it was a roller coaster ride. Without getting into the details, bc this post is not about Windows 8, I will say this, at the end of the day, I have respect for W-8, and I understand it.  
Having said all that, Windows 8 customer’s might want to upgrade to W-10 bc it’s an improvement over W-8, again in my opinion, making W-8 better so to speak. But for Windows 7 customers, idk, maybe you want to hold off, like any Windows operating system, it’s like the old saying, “You never know what you’ll get in a box of chocolates.” 
Well idk yet what I’m going to do.  I thought I would share this article with you because your going to be faced with this issue soon enough, if not already.  If you know Microsoft Windows like I do, you know the next upgrade might not be the best upgrade, i.e. Windows Me, Windows Vista, Windows 8.  On the other hand the upgrades from disastrous OS’s have been stupendous, i.e. Windows XP.  Enough said, I found this review on W-10 to be useful. I hope it will help you make the right decision to fit your needs. Just click the link below.



Windows 10 is what Windows 8 should have been, but it has too many rough edges to attract Windows 7 users. Continuous upgrades could change that as early as this fall

We Need the Right to Repair Our Gadgets – WSJ



This is the world I came from; we repaired or had repaired just about everything we owned for a fraction of what it cost new.  One problem I see here is technology itself; what we bought yesterday literally 2 yrs ago is an antique.  If we are talking Microsoft windows; XP is no longer supported.

Are the Producers like Apple moving to lightening fast into the future?  I’m a member of the baby boomers, and we lived just fine in the slow pace Taurus kind of way. We were able to breathe better I think, and less stress, I think our lives were richer in a spiritual since back in the day.

I remember I owned a pair of Engineer boots, when the welt and heel sore out,  I would take them down to a pop shop; shoe repairman many times. He always attached a brand new thick welt to the boots, along with kleets on the toe and heels, to last longer. He then  repaired any imperfections on the actual boots, & polished the leather. When I picked them up later,  I always had a awesome feeling, I had a better than new pair of boots for less than a third of the price I paid for them. The Consumers need to demand that the producers out there make possible & easy for us to repair our own electronics. Read the article below…….




People can fight back against planned obsolescence by fixing the tech we already own, but the consumer electronics industry isn’t making it easy.
