Twitter and computers (grr) and SAILING!!!

Did you see that twitter thingy over there on the right? I'm having fun with the new cell phone, and since the d*mn computer decided to disable the wireless, I have been off line...I'm on a friend's computer. I have to say that one from work is making me NUTS. It won't go on line and when it does it cuts me off, and I cannot download a google tool bar nor picassa...how am I going to manage my photos?

I hate big brotherdom that won't let me into the machine. I'm using a friend's machine right now, the only work around I could come up with.

The twitter is some cool, isn't it? It's a website you join, and then you can put in text from your laptop (meh) or from your phone with a text message (hehehehehe) I've got it set up sp that they go off to the blog...which is nice cuase if I am off line for a while I can still put up some little notes, and say hi to the Man....cool boots huh...

On a much brighter note I went SAILING today!!!!

How great is that?

Though I have to say that the hill walking in Spain is not setting me up for an easy time on a boat where almost all of the work is upper body work. (puff Puff) Today was a bit of a work out to say the least, and my hair is a mess, my fingers feel stiff, my face feels sunned and warm and greasy from the lotion, and my arms are kind of heavy.

What a great day.

The girls and a friend and my folks and I all had dinner after - the kids didn't go sailing - what a lovely day. The kids are all sleeping over in one room, I can hear them chatting right now....

Anyway, hope you had a great day, I did.

This is really weird, on firefox, I have twitter, but I am missing two posts. On Safari I have all the posts but only the banner for twitter, on internet explorer, everything is in CAPTIALS like I am yelling at you all the time, though all the posts are there, if a little loud, but no sidebar at all....what are you seeing? Please let me know....

GM, hope lots of folks showed up...

Kim, I'm going to have to find you too!

Mmichele...the sailing was divine, so nice to go out, and nice to have that physical tiredness at the end of the day too.

Not sure I'm into that twitter thingie too much. Though those two videos made me laugh pretty hard :D.

So... you need to walk hills *and* sail, in Spain :).

Did you take the boat with you? Or did you rent one? :).

Sounds like you had a good day, except the computer stuff. I am on Firefox and see all your posts (or at least I think I see them all) and the twitter. I haven't got into twitter, I am still a bit techno challenged and with the busyness around here I feel too overwhelmed to even look at it.
