It's a quiet day here in Kansas so far

It's a quiet day here in Kansas so far. I did manage to go to the store and get some things in case we get the expected snow tonight and tomorrow that they are calling for. It's only supposed to be about 6 inches which really isn't that much but when you consider that we have no snow plows and the snow that sticks to the streets quickly becomes ice it makes sense to be ready. Don't get me wrong, our city tries to do the best they can to get rid of the snow with the few road graders they have but it is never enough.

In other news my daughter Cindy got the Laptop that her boyfriend Doug sent to her. Cindy and Doug are both in the Navy. Cindy is stationed in San Diego, Ca and Doug is in Norfolk, Va. Cindy called me last night because the PC Wireless Card in the Laptop wasn't installing correctly. The card is the Netgear Wireless PC Card WG511. After trying some things with her on the phone we determined that the card or slot was damaged in shipping. Probably the card. Hopefully Cindy will be able get another one soon and find out.

Cindy if you are reading this here is a link to a NETGEAR WG511 Wireless-G PC Card for $39.99 Hope that helps.

That's about it for now. Hope everyone has a great day.
