Why Does Your Computer Hate you?

 Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

Startup Gallery – Albuquerque, New Mexico

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert. California, of which we are members. I’ll be departing from here later this morning. Things continue to arise for Mary at her home in Murphys, California. She is now expected to rejoin me in Yuma, Arizona in late January.

I have lots of friends in the Yuma area plus while there I’ll cross into Mexico to visit my dentist for my annual visit, refurbish the freon in the Bronco’s air conditioning system and get new prescription eyeglasses.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 80 degrees.  Forecast for today is sunny and 76 degrees.

A more relaxed mode…

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

EASTER AND RAIN

This morning I looked for items the family left behind after a full weekend of Easter fun. Ken left his tennis shoes. Doug left a Care Package of chicken alfredo he wanted to take home. And Virginia left her shopping bags that she had previously left in my car when I returned to Murphys weeks ago.

The kids colored a glob of eggs. Ken colored one egg with a rock band symbol and told the boys aged 10 and 13 whoever found that egg on Easter morning and could name the band, he would pay $5. The boys got on the internet, figured out the band, Blue Oyster Cult and conspired among themselves that they’d share the 5 bucks and that way, no matter who found the egg, they’d both be winners. Smart kids.

Even though they are too old for the bunny, the fun is in the egg hunt. With 23 hidden eggs, it took them two hours to find them. The hardest was finding a purple egg hidden among the bouquet of lilacs, invisible among the flowers. And, one brownish egg hidden in the woodpile next to the stove. And, we who hide the eggs take pleasure in providing a challenge. I took great pictures.

Cedric loves to bake and he made a wonderful woven Easter bread. We all enjoyed card games, the food and sweets. Ken and Virginia are training for a 65 mile ride, so they got out twice on the bikes. Easter morning they road 45 miles with hills before the rain set in. Ah, well, we have to count our blessings. We had good weather between storms. The lightening show was fantastic. We skyped family members who couldn’t come.

But, getting pictures up in my blog is a challenge that get’s worse with everything I try. Maybe next week.

Startup – Albuquerque And The Personal Computer Revolution…

I’m currently in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I’m awaiting Mary’s arrival today. Once she arrives we’ll spend the next 10 days or so exploring the area together before moving on.

Yesterday I published a Blog entry that told of a stolen plaque from the first Microsoft location here in Albuquerque. You can read that entry by clicking this link…

Three days ago I went to the New Mexico Museum Of Natural History & Science. There I spent an enjoyable three hours going through an exhibit called “Startup – Albuquerque And The Personal Computer Revolution”. I met a very knowledgeable volunteer docent there by the name of Jane Dobbs. Back in the 1970’s when she work with Bill Gates and Paul Allen she was Jane Lockett. She provided me with some very interesting stories about their early days. She preferred not to be photographed.

From their brochure…

Startup – Albuquerque And The Personal Computer Revolution takes visitors through important technological developments that have transformed science and society – from the creation of the Altair (the first commercially successful personal computer) in Albuquerque, to the universal role that computers play in modern life.

Take a hands-on look at the world of computing and its origins in the great American Southwest as the exhibit chronicles the people, places, and events that released the power of  computing to a fervent public. Visitors of all ages will be intrigued , amazed and inspired.

Here’s the official Startup Gallery website link…

Here are some photos I took while there. Once again very difficult photographic conditions…very dimly lit mostly by overhead spotlights. Difficult at best…but nonetheless…I ventured forward…
