    craving peanutbutter and ice cream.

    can shortbread be made chocolatey?

    Dipped in melted chocolate and l;eft to cool.   

    That would improve almost anything. smiley

    Maybe even Irish soda bread.

    Maybe.

    (that's a big maybe)

    Iz a dramatic start to the day here...

    ...seemed to have cleared up later as I was watching the "Open" at a pub this evening.

     

    Was that Friday? A lot happened here since...

    ..yeah, Friday here in the US although it was a live broadcast.

    French goy beat hte AMerican guy while that Serbian player who had been bunrning things up last year was defeated in extra sets by some guy from Switzerland.  I don't think there are any American men players who made the next round.

    I think I like my bed right now.  It is comfy and has all my blankets.  I do not understand why I have four pillows but they are all good.  I wonder what I used before I got these four pillows and what happened to the old pillows.  Maybe I got four so that they will last longer than if I got one one.  No clue but I miss my computer and playing with my 3d figures.

    Some things on Netflix are boring like this certain show about a fan.  Watched a bit of it but it was just a fan bowling while roating back and forth.  Not much to it other than a household fan being a boring household fan.

    My mum is thinking of dropping direct tv as she has Netflix and Amazon prime.  The only thing she wants from Netflix is packers but I am trying to figure out a way around it.  Maybe through Amazon fire stick.

    Was a great line.  Funny thing is, it wasn't just a "LSD" reference, there was another take on it, considering where the actress was from.  I never knew this:

    Found my old Dell box but I have no OS that works with it.  It has a 32 bit processor but my OS thumb drives are for 64 bit.

    I have several hdd but nothing seems to get it to boot.  Probably because of the OS 32/64 problem \

    I think I have several Windows98SE installation disks with legal serial numbers for Dell machines.  If you think that will help. devil  (However, I may actually have trashed them a year or so ago sad)  How about a Windows2000 installation disk & key?  I even have a few WindowsXP installation disks if you have an activation key.  But newer than that ... you're on your own. indecision  All my other OS's are tied to my own machines.

    Well, I've got good news and bad news.  I found several Win98SE installation disks  smiley but none are for Dell machines and besides Win98 is museum fodder.  frown  Unfortunately, I have no available WinXP generic install disks either. sad But I do have several WinXP reinstall CD sets (OS CD and driver CDs and app CDs) for various Dell model machines (eg: Dell Dimension 4300S, Inspiron 4000, Dimension 3000, Dimension 4550, Inspiron 8200, Dimension 2350, Dimension C521)  The problem with this is that some of the CD sets are incomplete and don't have all the drivers or apps for the particular machines.  And the OS CD may or may not be compatible with your particular machine.  Rebuilding an old Dell from incomplete sets can be done if you have the compatible OS CD and download the required drivers and apps from the Dell website but it's sometimes tricky, and the Dell website may no longer provide the downloads for the drivers & apps for obsolete machines.

    Which Dell do you have?  Laptop or Desktop? And which model?
