Switching to a Mac

So this is the first post I'm doing with my new laptop. I've had a few buggy Microsoft machines in the last few years so I thought I would try something different instead of Vista. Linux still seems like a bit too much work for someone with my rather basic computing needs so I decided to give Apple a try. Several friends who have Macs swear they never display those nasty habits of the cranky computers I'm used to.

So here I sit, up way too late playing with my refurbished macbook. Right now I'm working through a few mild frustrations of platform switching, but no major hang-ups. Time will tell if I've become a victim of clever marketing and fashion, or I've discovered the secret to worry-free computing...

All Things Go (Moving)

Well, we are frantically moving all our belongings into boxes. As of March 22 our favorite place in Kingsport will be someone else's house. This weekend John Drake is coming up to help me load the truck and take everything to Athens. No job yet, but a couple prospects. I'll miss this old house on 310 Union Street. I'm still here in Kingsport for another 3 months finishing up residency while living migrantly.

We got some exciting news yesterday. We had no idea that the Okies are also moving to Athens, Ga. It will be good to see them again.
