And another of my former towns hits the news

CBS Evening News, tonight reported on the ice and damage in Aiken, South Carolina.  I lived there for a couple of years in the early 70's.  I was a reporter/photographer for the Aiken Standard.  It was and is a small town so national news coming to town - hell, local TV news coming to town - is big doin's.  Too bad, no one there will see it cause the story was that their power is out!


I kept very little on the computer that died.  Most of my files were on it's big drive which was mirrored to Google. But, one thing that wasn't was LJ Archive.  I did find a recent archive in my DropBox folder so whew.  But then couldn't get the actual program to run. I remembered that howeird had recently had troubles and solved the problem so I went back through his journal and found the clue, then found the fixed version but by then had tried too many times.  So I'm waiting now for the LJ servers to resent so I can know for sure I'm back in the saddle.  I'm not so much interested in keeping everything for posterity but... this little tool has the best search engine on the planet.  And, since very little of my life does NOT make it to the journal, if I can come up with the right search terms, I can find most anything.


Leonard Nimoy has COPD just like me and just like me ""I'm doing OK.Just can't walk distances."  This afternoon I went to Home Depot and was wandering around just looking at stuff after I found what I went for.  My everything hurt.  My back hurt, my shoulders hurt, I just felt like I had just been hit by a truck. I tried to walk 'through' it and kind of did but was greatly relieved to get to the car.  Once I sat down and breathed for a minute, less than a minute even, I felt 100% better.  Grrrr.   At least I don't look as wrinkly as Leonard... Fat don't crack.
