I JUST TRIED TO GET RID OF WINDOWS AND REPLACE THEM WITH LINUX. MORE COMPLICATED THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. First WINDOWS IS VERY TENACIOUS AND THEN IT TURNS OUT MY LAPTOP, WHICH IS SLOW ENOUGH ALREADY IS NOT FAST ENOUGH FOR Linux. Still I WOULD SO LIKE TO GO BACK TO THE WAY THE COMPUTER WAS WHEN I GOT IT. It SLOWS APPRECIABLY DAY BY DAY NOW. I SUPPOSE THIS OBSOLESCENCE IS A BUILT IN FEATURE TO GET ME TO BUY NEW EVERY THREE TO FIVE YEARS. Pity, BECAUSE THE KEYS AND SCREEN ARE STILL FINE. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS European Samsung. I’ve TRIED OTHER LAPTOPS AND D O NOT LIKE THEM AS MUCH. The KEYS ARE VERY LARGE AND THE SCREEN WIDE. I HAVE STUBBY FINGERS AND TOUCH FINGER TYPE LOOKING AT THE KEYS. Their ACTION IS COMFORTINGLY DEFINITE TOO, NOT SOFT LIKE MY WIFE'S. The ONLY PROBLEM IS GETTING STUCK IN CAPS!

These were a long time coming. What do my blogging friends think of them? I found a note in my handwriting in the drawers next to my bed. It read, "Angela Kershaw 2006 "Women in Europe between the wars: Politics, Culture and Society", Ashgate Publishing pp145 ISBN 07546 6845
Sounds boring but won't be!"
I found the book in our Toronto library system, but lost the note: Knowing it would turn up, I kept the book, which disappeared. When I reported this loss to the library, they charged me 135 dollars, as it was their only copy. Recently I found the book and was reimbursed. Then I found the note, reapplied for the book and found a very interesting article about the photographer. These are just a tiny fraction of her work. So what do you think, or know about Claude Cahun?
We are off to Paris and Marseilles in three weeks and I am determined, mainly for other reasons, to visit the museum of the thirties, the Louvres and the Galleries Lafayettes. Maybe catch a movie, but, sadly, I just quit a three weeks smoking binge, so I won't be able to smoke even one Boyar.
