computer woes...

Once again our computer crashed... we are looking into purchasing a new tower or Tom is even considering buying an Apple. We never thought we would head that direction!

We are grateful to Brennen and Stephanie for the loaner while they are away!!

Thanks also to Mom, Dad and Nathan for the huge box! The snacks inside were a major hit at the seminar today. Especially the chocolate covered pretzels!!

For Tom's session this morning we had 15 people. Our women's group after Tom's lecture is growing in numbers and the sharing there is deep. It is truly a safe place to open up and to learn from the experience, strength and hope of another. Tom is teaching on Adult Children and today he presented the concept of a Family Tree, explained the common characteristics of an AC, and helped us all understand the chemistry behind addictions.

He has one more teaching in this series and then we take a break for all of the holidays coming up!

Glad to be back online, Alida


  1. I made the switch to Apple 3 years ago and it changed my life. Seriously. While they are absolutely more expensive than a PC, the benefits dwarf the added expense.

    I always get excited when someone switches to a Mac. Invariably, they are a bit reticent in the beginning but then 2 months later I get an email gushing about how much they LOVE their computer.

    The iMacs are wonderful for the home. Plus, as an added benefit they have iSight video cameras built-in to the screens so you can do your Skype video chats that much more easily.

    Let me know if you have any questions. I'd be glad to help.


  2. you would LOVE an apple.

    =) Glad you're getting some treats!!

  3. Glad you are back!!! I too love the Mac.
