Where've You Been?

Every time I disappear from the blogosphere and then come back I always think of the words to that old song,

Where have you been
I've searched for you forever and a day
Where have you been
I'm just not myself when you're away
I'm just not myself when you're away 
Well, I knew this day was coming. My computer is so full that it won't work. I have zero storage left and it's time to buy a new one. Gus and I went out looking last night. I found one I like with all kinds of RAM and Memory. It's an HP laptop with a 14 inch screen and only 4 lbs. It also has an 8 hour battery, so I can take it anywhere. However, we probably won't be buying it for a couple of weeks, so, until then, I am limping along on this old laptop which has a limited operating system on it. I can access the internet and even blog, I just might not be posting photos for awhile.

However, I did manage to get a guest post up on the Birding is Fun blog before my computer crashed. It posted yesterday. If you would like to read my take on  Why Birding is Fun, just click on the link. There are lots of photos there!


  1. I feel your pain!! My camera is on it's last legs and I am starting to have dreams (nightmares?) about it's demise!! I can't afford another.

  2. Hi Katie..thanks for the Why? It was lovely !
    Bummer!!!I hope everything goes well with the setting up with a new computer!!
    Good luck!


  3. Please check out reviews of the HP you're looking at. My last laptop, HP, had a problem overheating.

    Thank you for letting us know how you've been. Now off to check out your post.

  4. I added more memory to my computer , bought a external hard drive and backed up all my photos and then deleted a lot of stuff. Good luck and I hope you find a great computer to buy.

  5. Hi Kathie

    Good luck, my wife bought a bigger drive to store photos then I filled that so now we have an even bigger one.


  6. KaHolly, My heart grieves for you and your camera!

    Grace, we are working on it. Thanks!

    Gaelyn, thanks for the words of caution. My hubbie is the ultimate researcher so i trust him to check all that stuff out. this HP looks really good but we are considering other possibilities, including Roy's suggestion below.

    Roy, I have friends who have switched and I am considering it. Gus is doing the research and we may go look at some soon.

    Eileen, the guy I found who is helping me is doing everything you have mentioned. Once we get it all done it should be smooth sailing!

    Guy, I hear you! We already added memory once before! Here we go again!


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
