Now I know why the film They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? has that title. Dark stuff in 1969.

Do not use Microsoft OneDrive unless you want your files deleted. Tried to get one file from the laptop on to the desktop machine. Turned on OneDrive on the latter. Got the file I wanted.

Hi folks,

Here’s a friendly reminder to:

Back up your PC and/or data.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. Even a simple weekly copy-paste of your most important files onto a separate USB hard drive is good enough and much better than no backup at all.

I don’t use Über, and I was surprised people were limited to using it twice a day!

Put on his knee.
It's Fa-are ye well, my pretty maid?
Then off to sea.
And left me with a silver spade

Mark well what I say!
I took her hand upon your knee.
And as you went away--

Removed our old Pink Batts from the roof in anticipation of new stuff going in. But in the meantime, the air feels fresher and the rooms feel way more liveable. Wondering if we should even put in the new insulation …
