through their eyes. I learned to explain my faith to others by explaining it to

Education Week vs. Holidays

I was describing my mis-adventures with the email “sending” feature to my friend Kathy on the phone. I mentioned that I was chalking off these last two weeks as holidays, since I wasn’t getting much work done, just studying and
researching and trying to solve that problem. Originally I was only going to take off the time when my niece and her daughter were here as holidays.

A Large Measure of Peace

A really BIG, arms-thrown-around-you ((((HUG)))) and thank you to those who have written words and prayers of encouragement! What a blessing to know that you stand with me in this “learning-curve” crisis. That has given me a large measure of peace. So instead of fretting, I’m going to work around it, and trust that the solution is going to show up sometime soon!

(Photo story) Elise doesn’t just walk – she runs – continually! She loved to play Hide n’

to hear her shriek with delight when she spotted me!

Purple Potatoes

Dad’s brought in our purple potato crop. It took him two days last week, and yesterday.
He is feeling quite pleased with this year’s potatoes. Last year he only got one 5-gallon pail full,. . .

Sittin’ Pretty – But with a Sore Spot

Without going into a lot of detail right now, I can report that I can already write in Kate and OpenOffice, which are better and have more features than I had in Mandrake. I can do web design; Quantra + is here with bigger, better
features. I can handle and manipulate photos and graphics in GIMP, which is also bigger and more full-featured than I had before. And my colour printer works!

Sorry, no article this week. I haven’t had time to finish the one I started last week, and been too focused on settling into my SUSE estate. I won’t forget you though! Social Bookmarking
