Well, the rent is paid for another year so the party is on!

Now if we could just get the landlord to fix a few things...

Dennis, I have both 7 and 10 on mine.  Windows had loaded 10 on my computer automatically.  I still have both.  I am thinking about buying me a new computer, I just bought some new programs,  think  I'll wait till I get a new one to load them on.

Shannon, hope you had a good time with family and friends. You and Linda have a great time and a safe trip home.

Dennis, good to hear from you. Yes, I would guess the problem is on your end. Windows 7 will self destruct in 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6..........

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
