What's Up With Apple ???

With everything that is going on, being said, the 4G phone from Sprint start to sound sweet !!!

I just have my old, once trusty, simple 3G iPhone that just drove me to my limits last night ...

So, I'm no geek and have no technical knowledge but I trust a big company like Mac to deliver only the best at the price we have to pay for their services and products.

After noticing the longest ever syncing since OS 4.0, last night my phone will not sync at all !!! It was supposed to update to the Os 4.01 too which (so have heard) was going to fix some glitches ...

Well !!! I guess I won't know about the improvements :-/
Instead, tonight I'll have to call the Tech Support to see what's up ...

How inconvenient !!!

Shopping Therapy ;-)

After the dentist session and learning that I still owe them a little more than 2000 !!!

Ya, I know !!! Right ... My jaw fell to the counter ... And I'm glad that's only a figure of speech 'cause else I bet I would have heard: "don't worry, we can fix it too ..."
Oh, well at least I'll have all my teeth and look good right on time for our wedding ;-)

Needless to say that I had to do something to recover from this news and what more appropriate then treating yourself ???

So I hopped straight the my favorite asian supermarket "Ranch 99" and bought goodies ...

Now that I think about it, shopping therapy is not quite the solution, is it ?
My wallet is down 20 bucks and with what I got, the dentist is going to be happy !!!

More dental visit to come, more spending, more shopping and there we go again :-/

Happy geocaching ...

Haha !!!
Found the little bugger ...

Happy caching today: nice weather, blue sky without a cloud insite and a nice breeze ...
So serene and quiet: just the crackling of the weeds in the wind and the highway purring ...

Where did the weekend go ???

Saturday and Sunday came and went , just like that !!! They forgot to warn me they were leaving so soon ... !!!
Oh well, 'till next time ...

Saturday: I got lost on the Internet --> no wonder it's called a "web" !!!

The night of Saturday through Sunday wasn't fun as my stomach wasn't playing nice with me ;-)

Sunday: beside taking care of our balcony plants, feeding the wild ... I had a lingering headache so no computer and early bed time ...

And now it's Monday already !!!

How was your weekend ???

Sinus problems ...

New development with my sinus !!!
--> well !!! It's not looking pretty: no more fungus/infection but still VERY inflamed

The doctor says: "your sinus are 'angry' and we really have to get to the root of this issue. A surgery to remove the 'hardware' might be necessary. Mean while there are some more antibiotics. See you in 3 weeks !!!"

Oh joy, oh joy !!!

Memories ...

I was thinking: " I just started a blog, but what now ??? " and my mind went crazy ... when suddenly it stopped ... 

The image in my head was a little fuzzy at first but there it was ... the memories of my childhood: a series of kids books: "Martine" !!!

Any french person in the crowd ??? Because it's in French ... !!! 
oh !!! Did i fell to mention I'm originally from France ... ???

Now, I wonder what became of my collection ... ???
Any how, those are really nice books with cute short stories and wonderful illustrations (see below) 

Wow !!! I read those over and over as a kid ... 
Thanks Amazon and I bet we can find more on Ebay too ...

Did you have a favorite kids book ???
