Monday 02- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 52 and 78 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 22 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 86. Calm wind becoming east southeast between 4 and 7 mph. Tuesday Night: Clear, with a low around 52. West wind around 6 mph.” 
I was wondering where my Windows 7 operating system was that I ordered from Amazon. Last week I called the post office in Twentynine Palms and they said that it was out for delivery and I told them that the post office doesn’t deliver at my street address. They said they’d keep an eye out for it. I called them again today before I did my exercises and when I came back from my run there was a message on my answering machine saying that the package was there and to come on down to get it. And that is just what I did. I drove the fifteen miles or so to Twentynine and picked it up.
On the way back home I stopped off at Stoney’s mailbox. His prescription from Canada was there and I dropped it off at his house. He invited me over for dinner and I said I’d be over at 4pm.
When I got home I spent the next hour installing Windows 7 on my HP Mini Note. Everything went well until I went to get the updates and that’s where I ran into dialup hell! Dialup was mighty slow today and sometimes it would just stop for no reason at all. After a few hours of this I was just able to complete about half of the updates. I was in the middle of downloading the Google Chrome browser when the connection just died losing what had already downloaded. I really need broadband out here!
I went over to Stoney’s for dinner. He cooked up his beans and rice dish that was mighty good!
I got back home and installed Microsoft Office 2007 and then Service pack 2 for Office. I was still trying to get things ready to take it online tonight to write my journal but the modem kept cutting out. “Castle” came on CBS and I decided to give up on the HP Mini Note for tonight and use the Dell Mini 9 netbook to write to my journal.
I did my stretches and lifted weights. I practiced my guitar and broke another string. Then I got out the Dell Mini 9 and went online. I have XP Pro running on it and I had thought that all the MS updates were done, but I found out differently; there was a 9Meg update that started to download. So now the dialup is really slow and it took me about an hour to get all the different places that I post my journal to load in the browser! This is what I call DIALUP HELL! Anyways if you are reading this then I was successful! Good night!
