Item #1: The Leopard OS for the Mac is coming and I’m going to have it. My upgrade disks will arrive on Friday. I plan to upgrade my laptop first and see what happens before I upgrade my main machine. My friends who are longtime Mac users tell me that they’ve always had easy upgrade experiences without glitches. But others have said they wait awhile until any unexpected glitches appear and are fixed.
Item #2: After some research, I’m supporting Mike Huckabee for the Republican party’s nomination for President. I believe we are at a critical place in this nation’s history, and I shudder to think about our future under some candidates.
Item #3: I’m two days late with my Christian Fiction Monday, but here you go:
