Lost in Space

I am alive and it's a beautiful day. Due to circumstances  beyond my control, I am not sure when I will be able to post here again. My old computer is failing, wifi is erratic, my health is a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. The mill-idiots keep changing things faster than I can keep up. That's my new made-up word of a combination of millennium and idiot.


It for those obsessive compulsive young programmer folks who have the motto "if it's not broken, then break it!"

Update, rejuvenate, renovate, create, change, until a program or device no longer works for the common user. The consumer is expected to buy buy buy newer and better to stay on top of it all and still never get a thing done.

I like my old computer, I like my old programs. I know how to use them. I want to do things offline then copy and paste when I do go on the internet. I can't be on internet 24/7, I am only on a few minutes a day. But today's millidiots design phones and computers to be on 24/7 internet and disable my offline programs.

That happened to me again! Windows updated and made my useful offline programs stop working so I spent hours this morning trying to revert the changes so I could try to type offline. Good grief.

This is not efficient and time, every single minute of it, is so special and important to me.

Well, that's enough ranting and raving. Pardon me.

I woke up alive, the sun came up, so I need to shut up, smile and be super grateful for these miracles.

Thank you for stopping by and perhaps one day I will figure out how to stay in touch in this uber-complicated world.

If this gets posted in the next 48 hours, it might just be magic.

Life is goof.


  1. So sorry to hear about your computer and health problems. Millidiots is a good word. I understand your frustration. These programming updates drive me crazy! I hope you are able to post again. I would really miss hearing from you. Take care - Kathy

    1. Thank you for reading my blog and making a comment. It's nice to know I am not the only fool frustrated by millidiots.

  2. Another one who misses you. I check in daily just to see how you and Harley are doing. Sad about your health problems. Totally agree on the Millidiots. Hope your health and computer situation improves soon.

    1. Health is a roller coaster and dealing with medical mess is well a huge mess all around. I just wake up and try to get going with a happy life and try not to freak out over the ridiculous obstacles thrown my way. This morning my cell phone would not work. Good grief. Glad I didn't have an urgent emergency but it was a waste of time and I hate wasting time. Thank you for thinking of me and reading my blog.

  3. You are singing to the choir! Whatever happened to simple, effective, and inexpensive? We received a printer as a gift last December and haven't been able to figure out how to get it working. I had no problems starting up the last printer.

    I check nearly every day to see if you have posted anything and wonder how you are getting along. Post when you can.

    1. Thank you for thinking of me. I wasted hours recently trying to get my printer to work and I've had it for years. But programs updated and managed to shrink my printing to one fourth of the page. It was ridiculous to lose precious hours trying to print one critical document. Will I remember the complications to print something again? I am scared to find out!

  4. I understand your computer problems it is so annoying already every time they do those forced updates I have problems for a couple days just to get the system up and running. Bought a new printer yesterday after hours of trying to make it work it is now in the box to be returned tomorrow.
    As for your health I also look for you every day hoping for some good news. Your a tough lady keep up the fight.

  5. I must have nine lives. Impossible to kill me it seems. Each day is a blessing. Thank you for your comments and for reading my blog.
