On a lighter note.............

Here's the inner child post!

A Day of Sadness......

This is what a terrorist bomb will do to a double decker bus full of people. Nearly 50 people are dead (so far) and over 700 are injured, many with missing limbs, and for what? There is no good reason.

As many of you know, I'm an American living in England with my British hubby. You've probably also heard the news of the terrorist attacks on London today. I remember when I lived in the States and was emailing and calling friends in New York on 9/11 to make sure they were ok. I never dreamed the shoe would be on the other foot. I have received so many calls and emails today, and have appreciated every one of them. We're actually about 60 miles outside of London, but it's still an unsettling feeling to have this happen so close to home. And I'm off work today, so had thought about going into London today to do some shopping. Glad I didn't. It really doesn't help that hubby is gone on business so I'm here alone. It's not that I'm afraid anything will happen where we are, it's just the being alone and not having him here to talk through this with. So I came here to yammer at all of you. Please say a prayer for all those directly affected by this.

A Poll!

I hate computers!

Ok, not really. I'd be lost without mine. But still, 2 computer crashes in 4 weeks?!!! First the old one crashes and I lose everything. Ok, fine. Buy a new computer, get it all set up and most of the lost stuff is found and reloaded. Then this morning, the new one crashes! Had to restore it and lost most of the stuff I had just recovered! GRRRRRR......................... Not going through this again. Went to Amazon this morning and ordered a 250GB external hard drive that connects with USB ports. So now I can save everything on that and if the dang thing dies again, at least I won't lose all my data. Thanks for the message, Silver Kitten - glad to know I've been missed. On top of everything else, my hubby left yesterday for a 3 week business trip so I've been missing him terribly too, all of which has not been conducive to getting any posting done. Ever have days where it seems the world is out to get you? Needless to say, with him gone, there won't be any spanking activity around here for a while! Of course, when he gets back, I may have to do some fast talking to get out of one for spending £100 pounds on this new hard drive - LOL! (I was just going to add my picture of "My inner child needs a good spanking" but that's one of the things I lost! Oh well, I've got it on a disc and I'll put it on later.)
