Good and Bad.

Today we have had a very friendly fast, helpful Nerd from NeedaNerd getting us set up to do new things with new equipment. Quite exciting and a lot to take in. I am posting using my new HP notebook. Tomorrow he is returning to set us up with wireless.
 
   R has learnt how to make DVDs from his ipod videos and lots of new skills.I cannot put in any of my photos today as I have not yet installed my camera's photo programme on this notebook, but I am trying out a free picture that was on the computer just to see if it all still works the same way and it does.

Now the bad part. Last night we got some very bad news about 2 members of our extended family, who have died. Anyone seeing NZ news will guess what I am talking about. I do not wish to go into detail here.We have had a lot of sad news lately but nothing of this type before.
