My daughter got me an excellent buy on a used Ipod; someone at work was upgrading to... I don't know, an Itouch or an Iphone? Anyhow, this thing is like brand new, and I'm learning how to use it, little by little.
It has 30 gigabytles, which is about five times as much storage as my very first Windows 98 computer had. I've been at my computer all morning adding entire CD's to the thing; I now have ten hours of music on my Ipod, and I've only used one gigabyte.
The thing is so smart! I can choose to listen to a certain artist, or a particular album, or randomly play everything on it. I added a Green Day CD I had burned off my granddaughter's CD, and the Ipod somehow knew who the artists were, and what songs... on a home-made CD!
I have no idea how long it will play on a charge... anybody know?
I think I have the basics figured out, thanks to my daughter’s help; my next move is to learn how to get it to play through my fancy-schmancy radio/CD speakers.
Speaking of how thoroughly modern I’m becoming, I’m liking this Windows Live Writer more all the time; what would I do without my blogger buddies giving me hints and suggestions? Not to mention how you all help me figure out what sort of bird is in my yard, or what kind of flower is growing in my flowerbed.
My readers are the best in the world!
On a random note, I still have hummingbirds, although I think the males may be gone; I haven’t noticed any red throats for a couple of days. And those goldfinches that everybody said would disappear? They have, although they didn’t leave as early as predicted. They are supposed to be back once their little families leave the nest, only not as yellow as they were before. I certainly hope so; I miss them.
Here’s one of my favorite things about living out here in the pasture. I can look out the window and see my cows or horses grazing!
