Slowly But Surely, Step by Step, Inch By Inch.....

I'm already frustrated enough today to start drinking early except that there's no Johnny Walker Black in my house. The son-of-a-bitch probably migrated over to as well. Yeah, I established a journal over there too and it's called Jimmy's Journal. Hell of an idea, huh? On top of that, I was taking a shower last night and when I came out of the bathroom, Shithead was on my computer setting up his own journal too.

Ok! Now, I'm doing my journal on AOL and Blogspot and giving time for Shithead to make his entry on his new journal. Add to that the fact that Blogspot routine is totally new to me and each day is a learning process and you have a man that is ready to go to AREA 51 tonight and sip a few cocktails with my pals.

Speaking of AREA 51, those of you who are members and need the icons associated with it, please let me know. There is a way to put the icons on your sidebar and I will be putting that info in this journal tomorrow or Friday and also in the new journal on Blogspot. In the interim, her are the links to Jimmy's Journal on Blogspot and Shithead's Journal, as well. &

The economy is still in a snit and a lot of people are not in favor of passing the "bailout" bill. To a degree, I concur, but there needs to be something put in place soon to get the economy rolling again. In a healthy economy, money continually changes hands and when that slows, so does the economy. The one thing that is certain is that the democrats want the rich people to fund the problem and the rich people won't pay. I guess the shrinking middle class will eventually be the payers.

The Pictures: A little mooselet (I know! I just like the name) was rescued from a freezing lake and once rescued and freed by the good Samaritan, it promptly returned to the ice and almost drowned again. Unable to find the mother, the Samaritan took it home. He kept it for a few days and then turned it over to people who had more room and were also raising an abandoned fawn. Take a look.

This Date In History: 1880; Spain sells the North American Territory of Louisiana to France by the treaty of San Francisco. 1903; The American League's Boston Pilgrims play the National League's Pittsburgh Pirates in the first World Series game.

1908; Ford's Model T goes on sale in America; the "Tin Lizzy" costs $850. 1938; German troops enter Czechoslovakia, precipitating World War II. 1961; American baseball player Roger Maris breaks the record for the most home runs in one season.

Birthdays: Henry III, king of England (1207), Paul Dukas, French composer (1865), Vladimir Horowitz, Russian-American pianist (1904), Walter Matthau, actor (1920), Jimmy Carter, 39th president of the United States (1924), Julie Andrews, English-born American and singer(1935).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: You think you have computer problems? It could be worse!

Helpdesk: What kind of computer do you have? Female customer: A white one.

Helpdesk: Click on the 'my computer' icon on the left of the screen. Customer: Your left or my left?

Helpdesk: What is on your monitor now? Customer: A teddy bear. My boyfriend bought if for me at Walmart.

Helpdesk: Good day, May I help you? Male customer: I can't print. Helpdesk: Would you click on start for me and... Male customer: Listen pal, don't get technical on me. I'm not Bill Gates.

Hi, this is Martha. I can't print. Every time I try, it says 'can't find printer.' I've even lifted it up and put it in front of the monitor, but the computer still says he can't find it.

As I prepare for takeoff to my new Journal home at Blogspot, here's my parting salute to AOL for discontinuing Journals.

That's it for today my little migrating geese. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

I'm glad you got off to a great start with  I already had an account there and I hated it.

I can't get all my pretty graphics on the sidebar.  If you know how to do it please let me know.

Also, BestBuy is have a sale on Western Digitial External Harddrive to backup your entire computer 500 GB for $94.  It goes for $139.  Would that help to go out and buy this product and could I download all my Journals to it????  I don't know all the tech side of things.  Help  I should have a back up system anyway

Hugs, Rose
