Computer problems

I'm going to be taking a forced break from blogging. My home computer is acting up. I connect to the internet just fine (I have a DSL line), yet I cannot pull up any websites. It sounds like my computer is grinding away and then just stops.

I could blog from work but I don't really have the time and I only know how to transfer photos from my camera to my home laptop.

Very disappointing.

One quick note. Is there anything that you are highly embarrassed to admit to eating? For the past few days I've been having a craving and had to dash out to the drugstore after work yesterday to buy .....



Not those nasty strawberry flavored ones--yuk!! Cherry! Yes! Mmmmm, cherry twizzlers. Oh yes, I am a sugar addict but I generally don't eat candy--at least I never buy any for myself. But maybe once or twice a year I just have to scarf down some cherry twizzlers.

I broke open the package as I was driving home last night while thinking that there was probably not one natural ingredient in them. At a stop light I found the ingredients and the first one was "corn syrup". I was at least thankful that it was not the dreaded "high fructose corn syrup". As I was chewing away, I noticed how strange the texture was, but oh, that fake cherry flavor!! I was in heaven.

So, I have no idea how I'm going to get my computer looked at. I was thinking of bringing it into the office for our IT folks but we don't have a DSL line here so that won't work.

Hope to be back soon!

I hope you are able to get your computer problems resolved! I would definitely try your IT people at work, they may at least have some ideas for you, even if they can't fix it themselves.

Ha! I love Twizzlers, but I am a strawberry fan and have to be careful not to get the cherry flavor. I just succumbed to buying a big bag at the airport. Good luck with your computer!
