Yep, used a few of my vacation days for this week. Feels good to have a few days off. Got some work around the house to do, but will work on that tomorrow. Today, just going to kick back and enjoy the day, and the freedom to just relax.

Anyway, just got my desktop back from the computer doctor. Got a nasty virus, one that my anti virus software couldn't get. Sneaky bugger hid in the registry. You know your computer is "sick" when you boot it up, and you have a window wanting the product key to "activate the software" on a computer you've had for 3 years or more. So, I called around, and was getting quotes from $150 to $300 to fix it. Then I saw this ad guaranteeing to get rid of virus', trojans, and registry errors, and stating can speed up performance to "like new", all for $40, and if can't fix it, no charge. I thought, what the hell? Why not give this guy a call? So I did, talked to him about what was going on, and agreed to take it in. That was Friday afternoon. Got my desktop back last night, he brought it to me, I didn't have to pick it up, and OMG!!!!! That computer is running so like new!!!!!! Used to be when I'd first turn it on, the fan was so loud, I always said it sounded like a mini jet taking off. Now it hardly makes a sound. I even commented on that, and he took the cover off just to make sure the fan was working, and it was...and so quiet!! He gave me a list of all he had done to it, including taking the case cover off and totally cleaning out all dust and debris, he removed an error that kept popping up with my printers software, and an annoying error having to do with flashplayer. And, he said he found four trojans!!! He said he worked on it for 6 hours. My poor desktop was really, truly sick All of that work cost me $40, plus another $5 for him delivering my computer. And my desktop is running like brand new, and so quiet. Of course, after all of that, which one am I using now? My laptop. I'm just kicking back on the couch, listening to the testimony on the Zimmerman trial.

Speaking of that trial....I honestly don't see the prosecution being able to get a 2nd degree murder conviction. Manslaughter maybe. So far, I haven't seen where they have been able to prove any evil intent to take a life on Zimmerman's part. What I've seen thus far is Zimmerman playing cop when he should have just made the call, and then let the cops, who are trained for this, to do their job. But then again, I wasn't there to see what all really happened. I only know what the news reported, and the bits and pieces of the trial I've heard since it has started. And now the protests in Egypt, guess Morsy isn't such a good President because those people are not happy! I haven't heard a whole lot on it, but I've noticed that gas prices that were going down around here are now bouncing back upwards. Such a volatile times we live in world wide.

Ok, enough rambling...time to enjoy my mini vacation.
