Dear Sherrie,

My computer crash wasn't that serious as it turned out, but I didn't know it at 
the time.  I didn't know what was wrong; so I began R&R, Remove and Replace, as 
the simplest method to get the computer (my three-years-old desktop) running 
again.  The problem turned out to be the monitor which I didn't initially 
suspect because it wasn't all that old but while I was still searching I 
decided to get a new desktop, one pretty much like my old one, from 
www.Ecollegepc.com<http://www.Ecollegepc.com>  Every computer I've gotten from 
them has worked well and been durable.  My present desktop is three years old 
although some of its components are older but it is still in good condition.  I 
replaced the power supply and upgraded the video card.  Now it is destined for 
Susan's office.

I copied the C Drive and will put it in my new desktop when I get it probably 
later this week; so both computers will have the same information and programs 
on it initially.  My new computer will have 16GB of Ram, a 1TB C Drive and a 
5TB E drive.  It will have a better Video card than the one I had on my old 
desktop, maybe comparable to the new one I recently installed, and a better 
sound card.  The computer I'll be putting in Susan's office has 8GB of Ram and 
will have a 1TB C drive and a 3TB E drive.  At present her office-computer-area 
is cluttered with a lot of wires but I'll have a lot of things installed in the 
console now.

Sean and I have been communicating back and forth about Apple Computers.  He 
keeps trying to talk me into switching from Windows to Apple.   If Microsoft 
discontinues Windows 7 I will give that some serious thought.  In the meantime 
I am at a point where I am tempted to get a used or refurbished Apple Laptop to 
play around with.  I read about the Apple Operating Systems.  Their latest 
system, Yosemite, seems designed to integrate or accommodate all the Apple 
Devices out there nowadays; something I wouldn't be interested in.  If I get an 
Apple Laptop it will have either a Lion or Mavericks operating system.

The only "device" I'm interested in nowadays is the Kindle 8.9" Fire.  I used 
to switch back and forth between my old Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle for PC on 
my laptop, but the Kindle Fire lets me prop the device in an Otter housing so I 
can read hands-free.  It is easier on my eyes than either the old Paperwhite or 
my laptop.  Sean scoffs, thinking his Apple IPad is superior to the Fire, but I 
don't want to do the things he does with his IPad.  I want to read books and 
the Fire does that better IMO than anything else.  The Fire also lets me watch 
movies.  Since I already pay for Amazon Prime I can watch any Prime movie on 
the Fire without additional expense.  The quality of the picture is so good 
that I can almost forgive the small size of the picture.   I can also check my 
email on the Fire, a feature I won't use very often, but if I'm stuck in a 
hospital waiting room I probably will.  And just yesterday I subscribed to a 
magazine, The Smithsonian, kindle price $1.99 per month.  I just finished an 
article on some of the work done to preserve the Amur (Siberian) Tiger.  These 
Tigers have been poached big time but Putin recently increased the penalty for 
tiger-poaching - prison time instead of a fine, and the Tiger numbers are 
growing.  At the end of the article was an interesting comment about the Tiger 
in general.  There are more tigers in the US (about 10,000) than in the entire 
rest of the world.
            "For the thousands of tigers in private hands, from those in 
big-top circuses and roadside attractions to others in backyard dens, the 
regulations are inconsistent at best.  Six states (North Carolina, South 
Carolina, Wisconsin, Nevada, Alabama and West Virginia) place no restrictions 
on owning a tiger; 14 states require a permit; and 30 states prohibit 
ownership, though in some of those states people have been known to flout the 
law, as in the famous case of the man who kept a tiger in his apartment in 
            As for me, I'm still happy with Ben and Duffy.  :)

Love you,
