- There are those moments. Snapfish changed something in their programming, and their codes don’t work for the moment. They are changing back, but at the moment they suggest I use Firefox. Who am I to tell them that my current computer is older than dirt, tireder than a dinosaur, and I’m not adding a new program so I can watch it collapse faster. So there.

- G, anticipating my slowly arriving computer collapse…which has been held off by adding massive fans in the case to help cool a overheating and dying chip, purchased a plug. This plug will allow my newer hard drive to be plugged into his semi retired older computer…….which works perfectly.

Then I too turned into paparazzi and took pictures right along with the masses. This time, I parked Grumpy and walked up to theUSS Bennington Memorial, something I hadn’t done in years. A tall stone obelisk is surrounded by the markers of the 60 men killed when two of her boilers exploded.
- Although dinner was already cooked, we fled to eat by the bay and later watch the sunset. The sunset was glorious, and it gave us a chance to see the Ryndam depart. We will be traveling on her next May. Not dinosaurish at all.
