The Wood brothers: they are like wolves
And, more importantly, a sorry reflection of a Mac. - LW
Good old DOS asks that you invest a bit of yourself and your time to learn about these machines and how to use them. In return they will allow you to do a lot on a relatively inexpensive computer in a reasonable amount of time.
Whereas you could install Linux and do a lot more. - LW
Bill Gates wants to corral us all though, enticing us to buy bigger and faster computers as well as the continually updated software, by foisting Windows and its inane hieroglyphics on those of us that can still read English. Now IBM is aping him with their OS/2 Warp which takes over your whole machine and dictates how you're going to try and get your job done.
The time wasted on either of these systems jumping from one stupid picture to another is atrocious, so our productivity has gone down the tube as well as our hard earned dollars. It's like Detroit all over again using planned obsolescence to get us to buy supposedly better and better. And once you install these beasts on your computer it's hell to get rid of them and say "Begone!" We have become a lazy people to allow these machines to take command. And we have the nerve to castigate those on welfare. We're just as dependent. 'Nuff said.
He thought it was mine but it wasn't - some purloiner had heisted it and tried to open it in my back yard! We couldn't get it open so called the police and turned it over to them. Still haven't found out if it contained anything of value (probably old tax copies like I use a safe for).
In another case of fleeting fortunes, I got a card from Reader's Digest recently telling me I had won a wristwatch in their $5 million dollar contest. Whoopee! And I had the $5 million all spent already too! But at least now we know they do give away something.
The family moved to Visalia where Lloyd attended Visalia Grammar School. Upon graduation, the family moved to Stockton where Lloyd completed his studies and graduated in 1922 from Stockton High School. Upon his graduation, the family moved to San Francisco where Lloyd got a job at City Hall as a court stenographer (many years before courts had the steno machines that you see in use today).
Two years later he was offered a job with Hartford Accident & Indemnity Company where he worked for the next 45 years. Shortly after he started working at Hartford he met and fell in love with a pretty woman named Alice Davies. Their marriage lasted 63 years until dear Alice passed away in 1988. From this union came a perky daughter named Phyllis; a chatterbox daughter named Beverly Ann; a handsome son named Frank Lloyd; and a precious daughter named Susan Lee. In 1979 Lloyd and Alice moved to Healdsburg to be near Phyllis. Both Lloyd and Alice loved their new hometown and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church became their church of worship. They left five grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
As a for instance, government employees are not supposed to associate socially with former coworkers who left to work for contractors. Nor can they strike or effectively bargain for their compensation other than by quitting. Might as well join a leper colony!
And I dare say the Republicans, with their pension cutbacks and contract reneging will be just as vindictive. Eventually though when one loses we all lose.
