I am in a holding pattern for a computer crash...

The problem that I thought I had with my computer was verified just a little while ago. I went by the computer repair place of my choice and I was told the loud humming noise indeed was my hard drives way of warning me of impending danger. It could go at any minute or it could go a year. Therefore, I have one of those dreaded decisions to make. I did learn money wise how much the damage will be, not as bad as I anticipated. If I can stand the noise, since I have backed up everything, I can either repair it now or wait until it crashes, which will not hurt the computer in any way other than the hard drive. Since I live on the edge, you may kinda think you know just what I am going to do.

If you do, let me know, cause I am not sure quite yet. I also decided when I replace the hard drive that I am going to go ahead and get me a flat panel or whatever they call them. I now have a 19" monitor and I would go with the 17" flat panel as they pretty much have as much viewing area as my current monitor. The only drawback that I can see is you can't put ya fingers on the screen and hafta be extremely careful in cleaning with a special cloth and cleaning solution.

While I didn't think I would muster a blog today, I do have this I would like to share with you; as Audrey Hepburn was a favorite of mine and what she had to say certainly has much meaning in it. So here it be folks....

.... and all she wants to do is dance, dance........
It's BEAUTIFUL Women Month, do you qualify?


Did you know that it's Beautiful Women Month? Well, it is and that means you and me !!!
Yeah I laughed when I read this too! I'm supposed to send this to FIVE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, and I have wracked my brain and I just do not know five, my gosh that's a lot !!! Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her "beauty tips." It was read at her funeral years later. Guess anything goes at funerals, but even I must admit this does have lots of meaning built into it. That is why I am choosing to insert this into my blog today. I don' t mind sharing anything worthwhile with my fellow bloggers.

Maybe we should use these useful things now, rather than later like Audrey Hepburn suggested...

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness...

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people...

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry...

For beautiful hair , let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day...

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone... People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone...

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself and the other for helping others...


(Written by the late Audrey Hepburn)

God Bless!

Rubbish, the one above me "blog of.. "is a publ.! For the computer I would wait until it dies. I have a laptop. Don't know very much about it, for that my husband helps.
Indeed Audrey was a wonderful woman did you know that she were born and lived for a while here in Belgium ?

I'm sorry you are having 'puter trouble. I know the feeling! It's hard for me to understand how these things work. You know my hard drive got fried when we had a power surge. Well, the guy that fixed it said it was one of the worst ones he had ever seen.....but he was able to get everything off it and put it on my new hard drive. Looks like if it was fried, everything in it would have been fried. It's beyond me to understand all this technology stuff...but I guess I don't need to understand it as long as we have people out there that do!
I like Audrey Hepburn too. Thanks for the beauty tips.
P.S.....I'm still painting today!!!!

Thank you to my friends clara and ingrid. No ingrid, I didn't realize that Audrey was born and lived in Belgium, thanks for sharing that with me.
I guess I am so used to rubbish every single minute of every single day-- that I have just learned to appreciate it too. :P~
clara, well if my h/d fries they can save it if they like, but I got all I want backed up. Hang in there with the painting and be sure and let us see the fruits of your labor. Thanks friends!
