My Hometown

What I Like 
1.  The attractive walkway with flowers and fountains along the main highway through town.
2.  The clocktower at the park by the fire station.
3.  The house at the end of our street that has been all cleaned up by the new owners.
4.  The house around the corner painted a beautiful dark olive green while we were gone this summer.
5.  The new retaining wall by the apartments on Sunland.
6.  The beautiful flowers at the house on the corner of 17th and Alleluia.
7.  The very nice park and walking trail by the Umatilla River.
8.  The nice yards that people put a lot of time into keeping attractive.

What I Don't Like 
1.  Gang grafitti written wherever they want to write it--generally on other people's property.
2.  Yards that are not kept up.
3.  Cats that come and use our yard for their toilet.
4.  When someone decides it'd be fun to put soap in the fountain which then can ruin the motor costing us, the taxpayers, money.
5.  People who drop their soda cups, bottles, etc. and other trash anywhere they please--sometimes within sight of a trash can.
6.  Shopping carts being left anywhere and everywhere in a parking lot.

An Apple A Day

Aaron and I are the proud owners of 2 Apple Computers. Yes, you read that right...two.  We purchased an IMac and and a MacBook Air.  It has taken several hours of work getting email configured, getting one connected to the DSL and the other to the wireless router but Hallelujah...we have been successful.

So at this moment we have 4 computers, two of which we need to delete items or move to the Macs.  Our granddaughter is buying the laptop and the old PC will go to PC heaven.  For the time being Aaron has to use the old PC for his Sunday School lessons because he has so much info on it.

Now neither of us can complain about the amount of time someone is on the internet or using the computer.

An apple a day keeps the arguments away.
