Reminder of end of Windows 7 support

Just did an update to Winows 7 today and was reminded by MS that the end of Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020.

Don't really want to update to Windows 10, because I dislike the user interface change. BUT, I do know that you can change how Win 10 looks in the "Personalize" menu. Selecting "Classic" will make the screen look like Win 7. Hopefully all the major bugs have been fixed.

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – October 2019

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

do they have annual safety inspections on cars where you live?

When I moved to PA in 1999, I was shocked that people told me, "Yeah you can get a coupon and it's only $60."

I moved from NYS where it was $14.

Today, for the 21st year in a row, I got yet another car inspected. Yes, she passed, as I maintain our cars and likely I would not take it in if destined to fail, at least not knowingly.

Happy anniversary to me

Happy anniversary to me. Exactly 57 years ago (well, 57 years and two days ago to be exact) I enlisted in the U.s. Navy. Man, it seems like just yesterday. I got to see the world and it shaped the rest of my working life. At the tender age of 17, it was the best thing I had ever done.
