Am I in the Twilight Zone

So today the column heading on MWK decide to not scroll - something I've never noticed before - and they are drivng me bonkers!

Is this new?

And the shout isn't working for me - maybe...I looked at it on another browser and I may have posted the same thing three times - but when I refreshed the page the shouts disappeared - so I don't know.

Took a break from knitting...

Started a shawl on friday - but in CROCHET; finished it last night and it was ALMOST dry this am. Pictures to follow.

It's a simple shawl to be used for the Dickens Festival I work in the winter.

Next up - the 18 foot scarf for the new "medical student" who has joined the cast.

Windows 7 is whuppin' my *ss

I've spent the last two weeks trying to get windows 7 to work on my new computer. Finally gave up today and handed it over to a co-worker to sort out. How to feel totally incompetent - as this is *my job* .....

I want to hide under a rock.

What happenned to Srping?

Last week I had snow and had to scrape ice off the car windshield - this week we are in the high 70's - which a lot of times is as hot as it gets here in the summer.

Where was spring?

Neat Trick! via

Okay - this is probably old news to some people - and it may well be that PayPal has had the capability for a long time...

but Ray is the one who told me about it so I'm giving him the credit.
