Woes, Foes and Thunder

Well, it's been two long weeks since my last post. And for good reason, I might add. No laziness is not to blame, but sheer PC h***. After a gazillion blue screens, two "reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows" (Dell's answer to blue screen issues that they can't figure out) and countless hours of phone calls with Dell's tech support in the Philippines (when I should have been painting, or keeping up with book keeping and blogs) , they (Dell) are sending me a replacement laptop. Whew, that was a long sentence! Sorry! They are to send me a machine "exactly" like mine, which makes me a little nervous. Will it experience the same problems? Since, none of the myriad of tech support I spoke to could figure out the source of the problem, can I trust that I have a "lemon" and a new one will perform reliably? Hmmm. At least I won't have to move to Vista!

Ok, enough tech rambling. Thunder is rolling and Grace (my black lab) is pacing and barking trying desperately to defend the house (and me, of course.) I won't type long since power failure is likely and who knows if I'll be successful getting back online if it does. Anyway, look forward to the next Fourth Friday reception. I'll be featuring the new works of Jacqui Binford Bell. The Gallery looks great....I repainted and refinished the floor and it looks great, if I do say so myself!

I've also got several new artists and lots of new work in a very moderate price range. All that new work is not yet on-line but once I have a reliable machine I'll get back to work on the web site. In the mean time, if you're in the area, come see for yourself!

Better go for now. More later. Ciao!
