New Columns!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

Arthur's latest was published on May 28. Click here to read "High tech devices bring the future to the present." It's a keeper!

My latest column was published May 27. Click here to read "Proud to be old-school on manners."

Memorial Day

Click here to watch the video of "Some Gave All."

Little Miracle

Sometimes I think life is a series of little miracles. Click here to see one of them caught on camera in Tuscaloosa three weeks after the tornado.

My new favorite commercial

A German film school produced this Dirt Devil commercial that beautifully spoofs The Exorcist. Pure genius, IMHO.

And the there's
this one about cats with thumbs...

Drowning doesn't look like drowning

Thanks to Myra at Hall Book Exchange for this timely advice. Please read it here and pass it on. It could save a life.

Chaiyya Chaiyya

The other night we were watching the Denzel Washington movie "Inside Man." I was intrigued by one of the songs on the soundtrack. When I Googled it, I found this video- it was made with no trick photography or harnesses of any kind.

This you've gotta see!

Happy Birthday, Molly!

On May 30th, our Molly turns 25. Little girl, in a blink you've grown from a happy baby in the playpen beside the cash register at N2N to a lovely, poised, brilliant young woman who is destined to change the world for the better.

Proud is a pale description of how we feel about you. You are a wonderful daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter and friend.

Here are a few of our wishes for you.

Happy, happy birthday, Miz Molly.

Message from Arthur:

Arthur says there are many forms of malware circulating the Internet. Some remain hidden in your computer, wreaking havoc with your system. Others appear as bogus utilities, warning you of non-existent problems. Often they will even give you a specific number of issues - something not possible if you hadn't run any scans with that utility. Others yet, are random pop-ups that you can't close. These all must be dealt with immediately. If they disappear on their own, they will return. They are not self-healing. If not eradicated, they will get worse, eventually blocking you from logging on to Windows, in many cases.

Call Arthur at 770-540-5100 or email him at if you need to set up an appointment. He guarantees his work, has rapid response times and reasonable rates. You've read his columns in the Times, now let him go to work for you.

That's it for now. Remember-email goes both ways...

If you run across any exceptional bargains or impressive new products, let us know. We'll put the word out!

Have a remarkable week!
