Congrats to all you with things worth celebrating!

I heart the little mandolin that Daniel (my 15 year old) and I bought today. It's so darn cute and portable. Much easier to take on trips than my guitar. It's great that Daniel's so excited, too.

I heart my kids.

I ♥ finding a 1.5 TB hard drive at Staples for $80.
And some HP printable CDs for $5 for 25 discs.

I've been mentoring a young lady who's somewhat new to the intricacies of technology.
Often it has been a bit frustrating.

Just the other day, I received an email from Lucy Luddite
crowing
".... I AM able to
import into my iTunes the audio DVD you sent me! Thanks
so much! It was interesting but I figured out what the problem
was myself through trial and error."

Well, I was just as proud as some parent whose child had discovered a cure for cancer (or at least for psoriasis :wink: )--------my little girl figured out something technical by trial & error (and there WEREN'T any explosions)!!!

I see big things on the horizon:
DIY solar panels!
Cars that run on sludge dredged from the Hudson!
Discovery of Patty's Electric "Living with Ghosts"!

Sorry, but I'm getting verklempt.
Talk amongst yourselves.

A recent torrent on Dime reminded me of the electric recording of LWG. Specifically, it dealt with The Tragically Hip's "Day For Night" CD, but I was mentally substituting the particulars of Patty's lost CD--
"Tragically Hip--Running Master #1-"Day for Night" demos

So here's a nice rarity for the Hip fans out there!
Many years ago, someone I barely knew approached me and said, "I have something you may be interested in." According to his story, his best friend's parents owned a recording studio in Hamilton, and the Tragically Hip were recording their new album there. The band had run a few cassette copies of works in progress for themselves, and accidentally left one behind. His friend then "borrowed" it, and made him a copy. I did get this before "Day for Night" was released, and was sworn to not share it with anyone because of that. Oh, and there's an unreleased track on it, too!

I heart listening to Cee Lo with ScottTTMFG.

Dude, so good...

Re: things i heart

Apple emailed me that the battery in my long defunct iPod had been defective.
It was a surprise to me.... my original iPod had long ago quit, but I figured that was just the normal life of its battery.

Fortunately, I still HAD the thing stuffed in a drawer, filled out an Appleform, received a prepaid packing box and sent it off to Cupertino.
Took a month, but I just received a new nano (twice the capacity: 4GB>>>8GB) and all bright, shiny and new.
:D
My old iPod had suffered the slings & arrows of outrageous vocation and was splotched with paint and various mystery substances, but the heirs of Steve Jobs saw fit to send a brand spanking new gen 6.

Is this thing working? Is this thing on?

The board looks really different!

Tonto, sounds like things worked out in your favor! Very good!

Things I heart: being able to stop by and wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all good things to my Patty friends!
