So I installed Firefox, only to find out it is noticeably slower. I went back to Safari.
This morning I visited the Swagbucks website and saw that they now have a toolbar for Safari, so I installed it. The trouble is, it's a big ole flashy toolbar; I'm not sure I like it, but I'll try it for a day or two.
Why am I boring my readers with all this? Because I have absolutely nothing else to blog about. We can't get even a tiny break from winter this year. We normally sneak in an occasional motorcycle ride during the winter months, but the Gold Wing has been standing idle in the garage for weeks with a trickle-charger giving it life support.
Thank heaven for the bird feeder outside my window; it's been a real bright spot in my life. I have a pair of woodpeckers visiting every day now; yesterday I saw some sort of big ungainly gray bird stopping by. Finches are coming around regularly, and so are the snowbirds (juncos). I've decided I don't care much for the snowbirds; I found out they are a type of sparrow, and I do believe it; they poop everywhere. Snowbirds, go away! And to think I dragged my Christmas tree out there for them. I've seen cardinals a few times, which is surprising considering there aren't any big trees close around the house.
I'm trying to cut back on Sadie's food; she's put on quite a bit of weight lately. She's always had a hearty appetite, and she's very active. But somehow, middle age (isn't five years old considered middle age for a dog?) has done to her what it does to most of us. It's hard for me, though, to walk past her dish and see it empty... so I'll get just a handful of Science Diet and put it in her dish, just for a snack. She'll run over and gobble it up, then look at me as if to say, "That was a nice appetizer; now where's dinner?"
I know the feeling.
I'm also playing with templates this morning, so bear with me.
