This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

new computer

It was time to replace my nice old computer. Its a big project to transfer everything. The email, the files, and then all the programs. And I'm trying to get the same color settings. I have to get used to slightly different spacing of the keys. And a different touch pad. It may take me some time. I wish there was an easier way.

Upgrading is such a pain. My laptop is 2 years old and is starting to slow considerable. I badly need to format it and reload everything which also is a big pain. I wish they would just make them work forever! Good luck with the new setup, once everything is up and running it will be worth it.

It'll be worth it. It took me about two days recently to transfer my files and apps to my new machine, but I love it. Hang in there!

I'm almost finished with the process. I completed all but one thing over a weekend, but I'm still dreading the iTunes transfer. I hate companies that don't make it easy to switch computers. Technically my computer isn't a new one. It is my husband's old computer and he got a new one, but since mine was six or seven years old I'm really happy.

I got Outlook transferred yesterday. My son is a big help - thank goodness for teenagers. Where does he learn this? Also Office is set up.

I can't get the colors on the monitor to look like my old monitor, so I will be making changes in the blog colors. The greens of my blog panels are too bright and distract from the photos (which are also too bright). My new computer is a Sony and I'm told they are known for bright colors.

OK. Time to start transferring more files.
