You better take care there, young lady.

I'm charging my laptop so I can do a system restore on it.
Barely used the thing. It needs some serious attention.

Very quiet birthday today. I like it like that. I was able to take my boat shopping up a notch and make a couple contacts on prospective suitable candidates. The lovely missus and I ate out at a small diner for supper. It was yummy. We also upped the anti on house hunting as this one is just too small. We're going this week to check out a 2800 square foot home with nice sized garage that has a loft second floor sitting on 6ish acres only 15 minutes from the city. We aren't getting too excited until we see it.

Canadian eh!!!

Going to look at a house this afternoon. Let the fun begin. Trying not to get our hope up until we see it. 2800 square feet. Big garage with a loft upstairs. 6 acres. 15 minutes from the city which isn't all that bad considering it takes 15 minutes to drive from one side of the city to the other.

Canadian eh!!!

Finishing the tax filing today.

Accountant has EVERYTHING and said it would all be done before lunchtime. This is the latest I've ever filed. Total CLUSTER#### this year. But looks likes its done.

I will be doing some chores around the house today. This evening I'm picking up Dasha at her dorm and bringing her here to spend the night. Tomorrow morning we leave early with her to drive to Notre Dame University for a visit.

Good luck with the house shopping.

We are shopping for another 'flip' house. Market in the area we like to invest is really a HOT market now and people keep outbidding us, but they are people looking to buy and move in. Investors/flippers tend to bid lower, long term buyers tend to bid higher. Our search continues.

Oh Brian!
That is gorgeous!


I was up messing with the laptop fairly late last night.

I did a complete system recovery, not a restore.

Once I checked for Windows 10 update after the recovery,that took 2 hrs, it didn't take!

So I tried just searching the updates for everything on it, that started with 8 updates, after hours it said they failed. Wtf?

I mean it works to get online, but I have to figure how to update it.

Also, I tried to get Firefox as my browser. Nope.

So I have Windows Edge.

Is that an air conditioner in that upstairs window? I thought you blokes up there got 9 months of winter and 3 months of lousy skiing.

Very nice looking house. Kudos. I hope it all works out for you.

You just cited about 5 reasons why my everyday computer is a Mac. I do own a Win10 laptop and like it, but windows can be such a pain in the ass versus OS/X.

For now it's sitting in the corner on a table.
I'll research more options to see what I'm not doing right.
I glared at it this morning. Lol

Thanks. I don't anticipate any problems. It's been on the market for a year and is sitting there empty. Plus the only condition that we put is a home inspection.

Exactly. I'm growing very tired of "city living" and the schools having bomb threats just a block away. And the vehicles egged. And the low lives stealing crap from the vehicles if they are unlocked. Oh and the noise and sirens all the time. It's a 15 minute drive out of the city. But soo quiet there. We got there about a half hour before the realtor and just walked around the property and fell in love. We both grew up in similar small towns. This house is in a small village of about 500 people.

Canadian eh!!!

Morning all.

Waiting for the lovely Mrs_Bob and Dasha to wake up. I woke up early, made the coffee and am checking the weather reports for our drive to visit Notre Dame.

Mitty came down with me but Walter is still sleeping on the pillows upstairs.

Its nice to have a full, but quiet house.
