Update on that MP3 player and other things


     I went shopping today and ran across a 4GB SanDisk Sansa Clip+ on clearance.  After comparing it to several other MP3s and the IPods, I went with it, not only for the price, but also for the ease of downloading my music to it.  I am once again enjoying my favorite music while cooking, cleaning, and doing other menial tasks around here.

     Due to some severe weather heading our way I might not be able to post tomorrow.  Since I normally write my posts in the wee hours of the morning, the weather might put a damper on that.  Do check back though just in case the front moves more easterly instead of north.

     DH is still showing improvement in his walking so I have nothing but good things to say about Ampyra.

     Patty has decided she wants ice cookies every night after their last out.  She’s begun to sit at the freezer door and beg.  Gavin waits to one side.  He knows she has the right moves to get some for them.

     Take care everyone and have a good day!


Do you back up everything?


Product Details


     After losing several precious to me pictures and some book chapters a few years back when my computer crashed I’ve become rather anal retentive about saving things to CDs and memory drives.

     I have a 2.0G SanDisk that I’ve been using for a few years and it drives me crazy because it has some junk programs that came installed on it.  Thanks but no thanks I only wanted storage for my books.

     With it now back to school season, I found an on-sale-super-cheap 4.0G USB memory drive put out by Dane-Elec.  I’m in love with it.  It is all storage and no junk programs.  At the price I paid for it I’m going back to buy more, many more.

     I’ll use some strictly for pictures and keep others for my writing.  I might even back up my entire computer again although there are a few programs I won’t bother with since I have them on disk.  Heck, if get a couple of the 8G ones I can back up things to my heart’s content.
