Switch Swap Go the Laptops

A short time ago I posted about having backup computers, and keeping them all updated. The other day while waiting for Windows update/set the laptop free, I used the back up less expensive laptop.
Uh oh.
The speed and graphic displays are better on the back up laptop than on the good one. The back up is newer by a couple of years. The difference in technology surely is better as we all know each generation of computers is better than the last. I imagine sometimes there's a log somewhere with all the new stuff set out on a spread sheet with dates and times for the developed discoveries, to be made public in the new computer.

What if we did that with our lives? Our buying strategies? Our budgets? Our Will-Do lists?

Recently in map searches, a fun thing like reading the dictionary, I wrote out a sheet on Quaint New England versus Desert Southwest. The highlight of the Southwest is the magic. There is something about desert, the pinon trees, scrub brush, and open land that is deeply inspiring. It can bring a person closer to their soul spirit than the woods of New England? In some ways yes. The woods is a blanket doing other things that don't require a person to be noticed. In the Southwest desert, a person is more a part of the environment.

Overall, the balance of the two places is like the new versus the newer. There will be things to notice as well as things to just experience. One laptop is dark and the other is silver. One keyboard erases my typing and the other can cut into my wrist while leaving my words. The key is to arch my hands when typing, and lift the wrist to the smooth surface instead of the sharp edge. Adjustments.


  1. Watch out for carpel tunnel if you are lifting your wrist. Maybe you need a wrist pillow. They sell those at the technology store or online.

    1. Hi Tabor,
      Good to see you back
      I will look into a wrist pillow. Browsing images online, some are really cute. I think using them will help for sure. Thank you!

    2. Dear Maywyn you are so good about doing backups. I need to follow your example especially where my photos are concerned. Hope you are having a great day. Hugs!

    3. Hi Debbie,
      Your spring garden photos are a real delight.
      Hugs to You!
