Oh Boy!

Having a lovely bit of weather right now. Cloudy but cool.



Think if I were gonna go to RenFaire, this would likely be the weekend to do it. If I was a golfing dude, this would also be a good weekend for it. Friend KD keeps asking me if I want to go (to Faire).



I think I’ll pass this year… It doesn't change enough for me to go every season any more. Most of my friends that used to work the faire have moved on. I don't think he realizes just how magical that place (or any RenFaire really) used to be for me. It’s hard to explain. But I think the shine is off the pot at this point though. I had a lot of good times there…



________________________________________________________________



iCloud + iOS 5 + OS X Leopard = 1 Big Headache.



Initially anyway. Like most I was ready for iOS 5 to drop for my phone and my pad. What I didn’t realize at the time was that iCloud doesn’t work with any Mac OS, except Lion, which is the latest release. You Mac heads out there would know this. And stupidly I made a premature move to iCloud from MobileMe. I used MobileMe to keep my Calendars and contacts, etc evergreen between all of my fruit. And once you make the move, Apple is making it difficult, if not downright impossible to go back to MobileMe. Bleh… My Mini was running Snow Leopard and my MacBook was running Leopard. **sigh**



And the only way to get the update? Electronic delivery via the Mac App Store. Oh and your system needs to be running Snow Leopard in order to get the App Store. I was going to upgrade anyway, but craaaaaaaap.



Long story short. All my fruity equipment are now running the latest (respective) OS’s. And everything is in sync again. Had some duplicate entries in my calendar. I expected this so I was not surprised.



________________________________________________________________



What Else?



I’ve been trying to quit smoking again. To be ultimately successful I think I’ll have to stop drinking too. Seems to be a trigger for me. Seems to be… HAHA! Had a couple starts and stops. I am determined to make this happen.



The Greek girl? Sweet. But just attempting to fill chairs at her singing gig as far as I can tell. Nothing happening there. And I don’t really need a romance right now anyway. I’m okay with that. Got other fish to fry first.

Yeah, I don't think we're going to go, either. It's just so damned expensive, even if you don't buy a lot of trinkets.

I'm just not in a hurry to upgrade from Snow leopard to Lion yet.
But I have to go there soon. How do you like Lion so far?

Well whatever you decide to do this weekend have fun :)

Lion seems to be just fine. I've lost some programs, but nothing I can't get around yet.

I'm sure I'll have more to say in the near future.

I am 28 days smoke free now. So far so good. Tomorrow am going to a party where there will be drinking. I am headed over to HEB to get a Blu e-cig starter kit just in case. I like the idea that I can buy refills that have no nicotine and are flavored. I will pretends I have my own little personal hookah. :)
Good luck to you, my friend.

I quit in January and went a LONG time without drinking because I could not separate the two. Unfortunately, I started my bachelors program in August and have had a few smokes

Right. It appears I'll be needing to give up beer for the most part. Shame as I really enjoy hanging out with some of these folks I've met over the last few months.

We have lovely weather here, too. The cloud cover is keeping the temperatures JUST right :)

Hmmm...I seem to remember eats_veggies had to give up the drinking for about a year to be able to stop the smokes. Good luck to you, my freind!

Gyro is very impressed with cloud computing. (I'm very surprised). But he uses a FREE Linux system. Just sayin'

Hmmm...Greek girl...figures...

I still love Faire, even if nothing changes, just for people watching. Plus I like going w/friends and introducing new folk to it. I really want to go this weekend but someone wants to go next weekend.. thinks the themes are a big deal (she looks up... they have different themes each weekend??). Oh well. Kinda broke this weekend anyway.

I fell off the tobacco wagon, but drinking doesn't affect it.. i'll work on quitting again. eventually.

was great hearing an update. whatever you do this weekend, have fun!
