    Special to the Banner


    I have three computers. The three are dedicated to specific roles. The oldest only holds photos. I’m afraid to overwhelm its capabilities. My second laptop initiated an auto destruct but was stopped before the point of no return. We dumped everything it ever knew and started afresh. It’s got a new lease on life. I’m using it for this article.

    The newest member to my little laptop crew has developed a thirst for adventure.

  • These past few weeks, my husband and I have been doing a whole lot of nothing.

    We both had a mini version of the flu around New Year’s, and his hung on for the rest of the month. So, we mostly spent time at home doing a whole lot of nothing, which turned out to be something.

    One day we hosed off the back porch. One day my husband cleaned the kitchen.

    We sat in the living room – a lot. We watched back-to-back-to-back reruns of “Law and Order,” the regular version as well as SVU and Criminal Intent.
