Connie, I 'cut my teeth' with my first laptop Compaq computer back in 2001 - it was a Costco 'demo' model, and I had tons of trouble with it (although it never really 'crashed'). In the long run, it wound up going back to Costco, and I got my money back. I then purchased a desktop, which I still have (although no longer use - my
daily' pc is this HP Pavilion) What I found is that if one has a decent anti-virus programme (I'm currently using the free (yeah!) Avast anti-virus, and it works GREAT), and if one avoids any, well, 'questionable' browsing, the computer is a great means to keep in touch, and gather info - plus, you get to 'meet' people you'd otherwise have no opportunity to know!
Speaking of Costco, I buy their 'giant' bag of dried mushrooms, and provide them to my boys. They do enjoy them. I don't collect 'wild' mushrooms, because I don't trust them. In the 'natural' setting, it's possible that squirrels 'know' which are 'good' mushrooms, and which to avoid - but in the 'domestic' setting, it's possible a squirrel might eat something it would otherwise avoid. So, I stick to white 'button' mushrooms, or portabello mushrooms, that I can get at the salad bar of the stupidmarket - or the dried mushrooms (which are also portabellos).
Lately, my boys are pretty quiet - and they also do more 'jumping', than gliding. Back on LI, where the den was 20 x 24, and the draperies went from floor to ceiling, my crew did more gliding - there was more 'open space'.
If there weren't so many places a flyer could get into the walls, here, I think they'd really love the 'loft to livingroom' expanse. But, I don't let the boys have free range of the entire house, here - too many dangers.
They're already being 'less active', with Autumn beginning. So, if Rain seems 'quiet', I would not worry too much. Absolutely, a 'juvenile' flyer is a sort of 'non-stop' whirlwind of a critter - where the adults will sit for hours at the top of the bedroom curtains, just staring down like little grey gargoyles! Too funny, really ....
Thanks for visiting!
