Those of you who are regular readers, may have noticed my absence the last month & 1/2. I would love to tell you that I have been out cruising ... sadly that's not true.
About 45 days ago, I was seated at my trusty Gateway laptop
, drinking some red wine, the boat pitched a bit, and a small dollop of the wine left my glass and landed on the keyboard ... the Gateway died an immediate death. Laptops & red wine? ... Who knew? A friend loaned us an old Dell laptop
so we could at least watch DVD's ... then as if to prove some sort of point ... Lynn was drinking some red wine .. the boat pitched a bit and ..... Damn ... guess it's true, laptops just can't tolerate red wine!
Am writing this from our new Acer 7100 ... 17" screen
Oooooooohhhhh neato! Have a beer
neatly placed where there's no chance ....
In the meantime ... didya know that stress can cause the muscles surrounding the Aorta to clamp down so tight as to restict the flow of blood to the heart? This mimicks a heart attack ... but it can last for months! I get to testify to that one too! Source of stress? In this case it was primarily the job (new management) and going a bit overboard
working on the boat. Currently unemployed ... still working on the boat (still plan to head
for the Carribean at the end of hurricane
season) but not at the same break neck pace.
So for those "enquiring minds" ... that's where we've been .... did I miss anything?
