We have decided to keep an eye out for a new laptop for me, and meanwhile I am using Tom's HP Pavilion, his backup computer. It should serve me well until such time as a reasonably good deal comes along. My own computer is also a backup for now. It works, but when it is first turned on, the screen looks like someone scattered phosphorescent dust across it until the computer warms up. Colors switch back and forth and so on. And the on/off switch has been temperamental for some time.
Everything important has been backed up, so life goes on more or less as before.
Today a reporter from the local rag, Wisconsin Dells Events, is supposed to drop by the library to interview me as a new employee. I will either copy the article here when it appears or post a link for you. This gives you an idea of what a happening place the Dells is in winter, when a new library employee makes the news.
Oh yeah, today is Ash Wednesday for those who need to know. I think doing the newspaper interview will be my Lenten penance this year.
