    Acer's are top notch computers. Are you just wanting a larger screen? Ask your son what he suggests and he'll lead you in the right direction. I know nothing about computers so can't help you!

    LOVED the sisters youtubes!!

    Thanks for the movie suggestion, Yes. I just started a "movies to check out" list today, and that is number 3! The other two are "Vantage Point" and "Warm Bodies" (supposedly a funny zombie movie). :smile:

    As far as predestination or whatever, I don't know if I should get extensively into my beliefs, but I do believe in karma, i. e., what you do comes back to you. To me, it's a law, like gravity. But I totally agree that we must take full responsibility for our actions, and will, of course, have to live with the results of those actions!

    Not a big "destiny" fan, but appreciate the fact that we have free will. :fence:

    Linda, Linda- your talk is Japanese to me :floorlaugh: :scared:
    Router? 4G? I don't own a cell phone- can't get a signal here in the sticks. I have satellite for the internet that limits my use (according to FCC rules :stormingmad:) and I have the highest "usage" allowance and pay mucho $ for it.
    What about that computer from Walmart- the HP Pavillon 17-e049 in my post to you?

    My second computer was a HP... So was my first laptop. Been through a Gateway and an Acer. ( the Acer was special made for Walmart to offer at a low price... That means it was a total piece of crap. IMO the keys popped off and the pad broke in three weeks.

    I had really great luck and loved the Dell ... I was a Dell gal for years & years and perfectly happy. Everyone here has a Dell Lap top and we have a desktop in the office.

    I'd still be using it and loving it ... If I didn't fall in love with the iPad.

    Edited to add... I always ordered my Dells custom straight from their website. They have some screaming deals on there too ( usually)

    I want a larger screen and more memory and, what's that other thing???,
    more storage(?).
    Younger son is not as savvy as older son, who lives in NJ. Younger son told me to buy this tiny Acer laptop that I hate. I hate to bother older son about computers- he's always so busy. He was suppose to visit this month, but can't- maybe next month (he's 5 hours away from me).
    I'm just as clueless as you, sister :scared: :scared: :scared: :floorlaugh: :floorlaugh:

    Enough about damn computers.
    I'm thinking about selling my house and buying a little trailer to put on my older son's land up here (use to be my parents land) about 10 miles from me. Anyone live in a trailer? My son is suppose to, eventually, move up here and build a house on the land (9 acres). There would be no more taxes for me to pay since he pays the taxes on the land.
    what do you think? Anyone ever live in a trailer?

    It is really a good thing that 12 of us are not on a jury discussing PC's, laptops, iPad's, notebooks, Acer's, Gateway's, Dell's, Mac's, etc. - it'd be a hung jury for sure!

    Perhaps she spent the time on the bus teaching Spanglish and promoting her new book club.

    My big question is, do you have a recipe for those banana quesadillas? They look delicious! :smile:

    Thanks, PSM! Speaking of "Dell's":

    but

    When I watched some of the "Hemi" trial, I found Andrea to be very off-putting, but could not readily say whether she was involved directly in the killing. I think the problem was, I didn't find her or him interesting enough to watch enough of the trial to come to an informed opinion.

    I think throwing Dell into the mix will make it more - gosh, I don't know how to say that. More compelling? Soap opera-like? Gotta be honest, some trials are more interesting than others. :blushing:

    I've never lived in a trailer but it's something for you to consider, especially because you are not in hurricane or tornado territory. I, too, have been thinking about that. Bought a house 3 years ago and am not particularly fond of being a home owner. Too much work! But I am in hurricane territory. Thought about a condo, but then you have condo fees. Thought about selling this house which is paid for, putting all the money in a trust or something, and renting an apt! Or a tent in someone's backyard. :)

    Can a trailer hold the weight of a ton of snow?

    Yes, a lot of people live in trailers here and there doesn't seem to be a problem with the snow.
    My house will be too big for me when my son leaves and it's 150 year old- needs a new roof now. I have 4 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, living room and a palour (sp?), kitchen, attached greenhouse, dining room, basement, and almost 1 acre. A lot to take care of. I've even thought of renting in the senior housing here, but I don't want to have to walk The Queen or if I would be allowed to keep her. I haven't lived in an apartment for so long- don't know if I'd like having so many people around :floorlaugh:. I'm not very social.

    Give it some more thought - seems like a good idea to me. Parlor? When your son builds maybe they can add a mother-in-law suite for you!

    I'm not very social either; anti-social disorder. :floorlaugh:

    Yes, "parlor" (I can't spell anymore :floorlaugh:).
    I don't want to live with my son and his soon-to-be wife. She's great, but I don't want to be the third wheel and I don't want them bossing me around either- you know, "taking care" of the old lady :floorlaugh:.
    I once took a personality test and one of my traits was "anti-social" :floorlaugh:. Just because I like to be alone- doesn't have to be a negative to me. :seeya:
    Do you have children, daisy? They seem to treat us like children when we get older- like I haven't lived for 63 years :floorlaugh:. pftttttt :floorlaugh:

    Yes ma'am



    Banana Quesadilla


    Ingredients

    2 (10-inch) flour tortillas
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1 medium banana, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
    3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar, plus more for top
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Vanilla ice cream, optional--(not really optional)
    Caramel sauce, optional

    Directions
    Preheat pan to medium-high heat.

    Brush 1 side of a tortilla with some melted butter. Place the tortilla on the skillet buttered-side down. Arrange the banana slices on the tortilla and top evenly with the chocolate chips. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Place the remaining tortilla on top to cover the bananas. Brush with more butter and sprinkle some brown sugar on top. Grill until the chocolate is melted and the bananas are soft, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Cut into wedges and serve with ice cream and caramel sauce, if desired. Serve immediately

    It has been so gross out. This past week Ive been getting up at 5:15 to go on daily bike ride before I go to work. By the time I was finished at around 8:15 it the heat index felt around 95 degrees. Only 3 more days of this...

    No kids and really no family either. I walk these roads of life alone. It's good most of the time but worry about my later years. Have a couple of dear friends nearby if ever needed. :)
