Best case The Tree That I Hate would be roots up like these two. I'd settle for all leaves gone. Probably neither will happen but a girl can hope.
My new tablet came and it's quite cool. It's an Asus Transformer. It's not new. I bought used. It's a 10" tablet with a keyboard dock - the tablet just snaps on and off depending on what yuou want to do. It does not have any kidn of data connection except wifi. It's heavy-ish for a tablet but fairly small and compact for a portable computer with keyboard and it's solid - no case needed at all. An excellent deal for $190. Set up was fun but sure didn't take long. Every time I get a new piece of tech, setup gets easier. I don't miss the headaches that setup used to be but, honestly, if it gets any easier, it's going to be a little bit of a let down.
It is funny/strange to read my Kindle book on a 10" tablet. It's really too heavy for regular reading but in a pinch, it will do nicely.
