Smart Box Issues.....

Ok y'all.....just dare to believe this!

My one and only (smart box) is sick....Yes it is.   This means, until it is fixed, I won't be sharing any pictures!  The reason why, is because I'll be borrowing Sam's (smart box) until mine is fixed.

He has windows 8 on his computer and I have not been able to figure it all out yet.  It's my fault that MY smart box is sick, so I'll just have to put on my big girl panties and deal with blogging on an alien computer. 

Can you believe?  Would you believe? .......... that I let my virus protection plan renewal, slip right past me.  I never even noticed that it had expired. sweet (dependable) baby is not running exactly right. 

Not to worry though.....It didn't have any kind of serious problems that would cause any of my followers to develop a problem.  

I will give you a bit of advice that I have certainly learned the hard way.  Unless you are a computer guru, don't go deleting programs that you know nothing about.  YES mam, YES sir......Since it was running a bit slow, and since I had a few extra pop-ups, I thought that I knew the perfect solution of how to fix these things.

In the same way that it's not good to self diagnose ourselves when we feel bad, it's just as important to know that you MUST NOT self diagnose problems with your computer.  Something that I thought wasn't needed.......WAS!   At least, I now know how to delete a program!!!!!   Lol..

I guess this means that I'll have to do a lot of talking and less picture showing.....for the next week or so!!

I recently saw this and thought it was worth sharing......I would love to give credit to the person who wrote it, but I have no clue as to who it is.

"For attractive lips.....Speak words of kindness!   For lovely eyes....... Seek out the good in people!  For a slim figure.....Share your food with the hungry!  For beautiful hair.....Let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day!  For poise.....Walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone."

Isn't this GREAT? 

Big sweet hugs to my sweet, sweet friends!

Hi There, So sorry about your 'puter problems. Having a mac helps when it comes to viruses, etc.... SO--I've been lucky in that respect...

But--I do know not to delete programs if I don't know what they are or what they do.... We all learn this the hard way sometime.

Hope you have had a great week.

Awww, you must be lost without it. What now, is a computer tech going to fix it? Windows 8 is widely disliked. In just a few weeks, Windows is coming out with 8,1, for people who hate 8, it will look more like 7.

Oh, Shug... I feel your pain. I'm not going to confess as to WHY I feel your pain, but I'm just sayin'... Some things can't be deleted and things run the same. ;)

Oh, computer issues are so frustrating and one cannot be without virus protection these days. And, even with it, we can still have issues. Hope you get it up and acting right shortly.

Have a happy rest of the week!

I've had so many heartaches with Windows I finally bit the bullet and got a Mac in 2009. Absolutely zero problems and I can count on my hand the number of times I had to reboot. Hope your smart box is fixed soon though!
