my laptop’s wireless card could be upgraded. It cannot (since it is part of my motherboard).
Oh, but does the cable company tell you that? Heck, no!
So, while my husband is able to enjoy the speedy internet connection via wireless, I have to “plug in” if I wish to have the same service; otherwise, I’m stuck with the same ol’ slow internet. Guess it’s the price I pay for keeping my laptop, huh? And I really don’t want to give it up.

How far would you travel to see a movie?
On June 7, “Much Ado About Nothing” was reported to be released. I checked our local listings. Nothing. I checked Fandango, MovieTicket.com, and Rotten Tomatoes. Nothing. Found out via a comment on one of those sites that it was released in only FOUR theatres. The big release was scheduled for June 21. Okay, guess I have to wait.
On June 21, I checked our local listings. Nothing. My daughter came over and told me that the only
cities showing the movie were Cincinnati, Columbus, and .
How is THAT a big release? Guess I should be lucky it’s in Cleveland at all, huh? Ohio
So yesterday, my daughter and I drove aaalll the way to
(that would be
120 miles round trip) to see the movie. Was it worth it? Yes, it was. Now, I’m
not a huge Shakespeare fan, and the fact his words are basically used in a
modern-day setting kind of threw me (you really have to pay attention to what
the characters are saying), but it was funny and I liked the people who starred
in it. My daughter is a huge Joss Whedon fan AND she likes Shakespeare, so it
was doubly good for her. If I were to rate this movie on something like
Goodreads, I’d give it four stars! Columbus

Have you ever heard of geocaching? Saturday, my daughter discovered this newfangled adventure using your smart phone and now she’s hooked. It’s like a scavenger hunt, but it’s not like you win anything. It’s just something to do so you can say you did it. At least, that’s what I take it for. It does require a lot of driving around and searching, searching, searching. Then, when you find the object, you write your name down and then replace it.
Sometimes I see things and think: Gee, I wish they had something like that when I was young. Like I do with iPods or even CD players. I would have LOVED to carry my music everywhere back in the 70s.
But I don’t think I would have gone geocaching if it existed all those years ago. Not because I was lazy (I was and still am, thank you very much), but because I just wasn’t (and am still not) very adventurous.
I’ll leave the adventures to my characters (which gives me an idea… See, they come at the strangest times!).
So… Do you think you’ll check out “Much Ado About Nothing”? And if you saw it, what did you think?
