Hey everyone. Just a quick post to let you know that this blog may be experiencing technical difficulties in the next few days because I'll be, insanely, posting and reposting an essay for my grad school applications and then taking it down again. It's sort of a long story; all I can say is that it's a real pain to email a document that contains cyrillic letters. Especially when one doesn't have Word, as I don't. I know, I know, "how could you not have Word? Doesn't that make it impossible to send and receive documents from, I don't know, ANYONE in the world?" And yes, it does. Hold tight. And anytime now there'll be some beautiful springtime photos up, but I'm waiting for the rain to pass. I'll be back soon, and thanks for your understanding...

Isn't it aggravating not to have
WORD...we have Windows XP, and it came with Microsoft Works Word Processing. I can't open a doc with a WORD format either. Best wishes with your essays Katie !

Hey. You should download Open Office. It's open source (free) and you can save in word and open word docs in it. Good Luck!

Jenny and Heather, thank you guys so much for the computer tip. I am indeed technologically challenged. I grew up in the "Leave It To Beaver" era, and didn't evolve in this realm as well as the rest of the baby boomers. Katie, did you try it? I successfully downloaded, and now I can access some docs from work here at home. Oh goody, ...I think...
