Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

Today will be sunny with a west wind at 20 km/h (12 mph). The high today will be 5C(41F).
I gave up on the Queen's laptop yesterday. It's in the shop waiting for repairs She was lost on her geneaolgy reasearch. Those thing are just about a throw away item now. Repairs in a shop cost almost as much as a new machine. I bought her a new one. Luckily i had did a complete backup of the laptop befroe taking it into the shop. luckily the thing ran long enough to do a complete backup. This morning I restored the project she was working on from and external hard drive. If the cost to repair the laptop is under $100 I'll have a laptop to add to the hoard. It will come in handy if the Queen and I venture back to her birthplace at Gand manan or visit the daughter in Newfoundland.
It's funny while hooking up the new computer I found an external drive I had bought her under her desk. The thing still had backups up to Jan 1 of this year. The Queen hadn't told me the thing was missing. lol
I'll have to schedule the EaseUS free backuo app I use to back the new comp on a regular basis.
At one time I would have backed up the laptop and reinstalled the OS. The confusion caused by damage to the cocentration area of the brain sure makes things harder.
Clear. Increasing cloudiness after midnight. Wind west 20 km/h (12 mph) becoming light this evening. Wind
