Is it the high court or something similar to do with our justice system?

Txting was awesome! I knew it was on my phone but I tho't it was part of an Internet access package which I didn't get. I haven't looked at the total bill but over the phone the tech said it would probably be about $50. What a joy and relief that was. He said the hard drive is fine; there was a problem with a splitter connected to the power source which made the power feed uneven and caused system crashes until I got a "No boot device detected" message.

Thank you for stepping in on such short notice, onyx, to take last Tuesday's Dose. I read through the thread. It was fun seeing all the old photos. Nice collages, nice memories. I'm praying the tide of negativity against this president, this administration, TURNS and SOON. It's insane the way this nation's media and some pols try to devour and destroy good, decent, hard-working people such as are in this administration.

Forgive me for this silly remark, but which British historical luminary do you suppose the portrait is of?

Welcome back, Gretchen.

It's been a good day for computers - your PC works, radiohead gets broadband and Ohio gets a new PC.

Good stuff ...

Well that's a new one on me - I've never seen one of those fail.

If that's the correct diagnosis, and you're PC is working again, then I'd take really good care of that tech - he sounds like a good one.

This guy is amazing. He's always gotten to the root of the problem and he charges reasonable rates. He ran diagnostics on the hard drive and said it's running fine. My PC had been clicking and then it started clicking and pausing and chugging its way back up before the power would come back full force, but I didn't understand what that might be caused by. It finally gave me a blue screen with a "No boot device found" message. The tech / shop owner was recommended to me by someone who used to work with him elsewhere, at Boeing I think. He said the guy was amazing and he made a believer out of me. He's rescued more than one crashed hard drive for me. I've learned a lot from him over the phone as he's patiently explained this and that to me.

Texting is really popular in Britain many people send hundreds each week, they get say 300 or 500 free text messages a month and somehow they seem to use them all up.

If you use the phone much in the US or would like to use it a bit more it is worth seeing how much each message is or whether you get free ones per month.

Youngsters in particular again in Britain are forever texting each other.

It is useful if you are out shopping with someone and you can just text them and say meet you somewhere or texting someone to pick up.

Hi radiohead! So you have broadband?

I'd take an occasional six feet of drifting snow instead of season after season of killer hurricanes.

If you're already moved easterly, you have missed the masses of storms (snow, wind, hail, rain, 60+ mph winds, avalanches, ice, mudslides, massive power outages, freezing fogs, etc. etc. etc., we've been having out here.

After I replied to yours, I called my phone service provider to ask if I get charged for sending text messages. No, he said. I asked, What if they are sent to England? No charge, he said. WooHoo! (He also said that overseas text msgs don't always go through.) You were very clever to think of it.

I suppose because text messaging is so popular in Britain it was natural to try that even if I am not that up to speed with all the jargon that the youngsters are but coming from the telex era helps as a lot of slang is similar.

Many of his posts were stereotypically extreme, some milder for cover, methinks.

Thanks for the Dose, Snugs. Even if I hadn't seen your name, I would have known that you were the Dose Host tonight after reading the first sentence. If I ever used 'whilst' in conversation people would think I was putting on airs! I love it when you use it, though. It is a charming word--just not one Americans use much.

Thanks for your work. I knew that there would be good pictures yesterday when I heard that GWB was out painting a mural with students. As we all know, some of his best pictures are when he is out with regular people--especially kids.

Hi, Snugs!

Thanks for posting the DOSE!

Alright, oWf! The Ravens lost to the Colts! Don't rub it in! LOL!

But, really, Ohio, I do understand how y'all feel in Cleveland as we had the Colts "stolen" from us back in 1984.

I remember those Mayflower trucks stealing out of Baltimore in the middle of the night.

It just would have been sweet revenge for Baltimore for the Colts to have been beaten in the city they snuck out of back then.

I'm pretty sure the folks in Cleveland would have wanted the same to happened as well.

The folks in (and near) Cleveland were happy that Baltimore lost to Indianapolis, Anne. We were all pulling for the Colts around here.

It's nothing personal, but there's bad blood in Ohio for the team that Art Modell stole from Cleveland. We don't want them to win anything..........ever.

Maybe you and I shouldn't talk football? :)

In Japan, texting is free. It is considered extremely rude to talk on your cell phone in crowded places, like the Metro, or in a store, so folks text each other all the time. When we were riding from place to place, my friend would text her daughter, who was across the aisle on the train from us. LOL!

It is often quite common for people in Britain to text each other even if very close maybe not same room but next door at work for example. If your office is across the corridor they may well text jokes to each other though email in our company has recently taken over from that.

Thanks, Jonny, you're the best.

Guess what? Perils of weather, icy roads, hail, snow, and federal holidays conspire to keep your Apple Strudel bread in the car waiting for an unfilled post office parcel box to receive that precious treat. It has been wrapped, boxed, and with postage affixed for a few days, but the box outside the PO to drop off parcels was stuffed to the max last weekend (the box having arrived at the PO after hours), and alas, now it doesn't have transport to the PO for a certainty until Thursday.

I have never had such a time sending a package. It should still be in decent shape because it's not like a regular loaf of bread (more sugar, and it has one whole apple in each loaf). Yum-O. But you must be honest when it arrives and weigh the difficulty and extended travel time when deciding if it arrived still able to claim the title of something delicious.

"Do you have the package!? Where's the package!?"*

* A funny reference if you saw last night's 24 :)

Don't worry about a thing, Gretchen. I know what it's like trying to get a package in the mail when it seems like everyone and everything is conspiring against you.

But that Apple Strudel bread better be the best thing I've ever tasted or I'll be very disappointed--LOL ;)

I'm in northeast nebraska....get use to it. That's what the winters were like all the time i was growing up! But it's the freezing rain and/or drizzle that will get ya! I never have figure out something, if you have a hard time walking because of the ice, why do people think that a 2 thousand pound car on wheels is going to have a better time?????

"24" is too intense for me so I am ignorant of the package reference last night.

To add misery to wretchedness, the roads got even more treacherous today, due to snow and ice. It's a skating rink out there. But I have a friend who is planning to drop the box off on Thursday on the way to or from work.

There was a pathetically hilarious video on TV, shot in Portland from the roof of an apartment building by a teacher who kept hearing metal-on-metal crashes. He caught this poor slob's vehicle sliding and spinning and crashing into one thing after another. I saw the portion where the car slid into something on the right side of a four-way intersection, then slid across the street into a pole, which took off part of the back fender, then it slid kitty-corner across the intersection into a barrier, taking out the left headlight, then it slid backwards down the street into a packet of three or four other vehicles. It was slow-motion horror for the driver, no doubt. Oh what a helpless feeling! The car looked like the silver ball in pinball machines. The fire department put a truck in that area to block access, and then two cars slid into it.

It's supposed to stay like this for a while.

All I can say is they lied to me. "Oh we get some snow, but it's gone in a few days." Actually, snow and 30 degrees I can take, it musta been about 10 degrees this morning at the bus stop. I had on 2 pairs of gloves and the long underwear and a balaclava and I was COLD, COLD, COLD!

But as someone who has spent the last 5 years in Seattle, I guess I can say that at least the sun was shining. : )

It was kinda funny to me to see these young things in short jackets, fashion boots, and no hat. And the boys were no better, light jackets and tennis shoes. Maybe the young don't feel the cold the way mature folks do!
