So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

The Cure was worse than the Virus

Computers have become such a part of our lives that we can hardly live without them, it seems. A nasty virus hit my laptop last week and I finally had to take it to be cleared out. Little did I know the technition would clean out my entire hard drive causing me to lose everything except the data they saved and restored.
When my computer was returned to me, I had none of the Microsoft Office programs including Word. My printers don't work now and I am having a devil of a time trying to download drivers and get things going again. Hopefully Rebecca can help me get things back to normal in a few days.
Barry had Photoshop installed on this machine and now it is gone and I can't find any software to reload it.
Well, enough venting for now. I am thoroughly enjoying my assistant, Rebecca, who is staying with me this winter. She is a lovely young woman with an easy going manner that makes having her here a real joy for me. She likes helping others and is quite efficient.
Read her blog, Renaissance Rebecca, listed on the sidebar of Writers Circle.
