    Awesome! Where is "here", by the way?

    I just went to a specialty spice store the other day and among all sorts of interesting things, they had frankincense and myrrh in raw form - can be used as spices (ground up I'm guessing - never tried...) or, for burning as is. I'll have to get some next time I go there.

    Plenty of businesses do it around here, not necessarily for religious reasons, but because it simply smells awesome !

    Actually, that garage smelled exceptionally delicious with the smell of motor oil, chassis grease, solvents etc...mixing with the burning frankincense. Yummy !

    Anyone else have issues after installing Windows' most recent update? My ancient desktop computer seems okay but my son's laptop isn't. After trying everything I could think of (ibnlt 3 different system restore dates) I called Microsoft. Although they spent over two hours on the telephone with me, they weren't able to get anywhere with it either. Finally they said something about it seeming to have a virus, which I believe was installed with their update, and repair to the registry would likely be required as part of any fix. They offered to do it for $149. What a racket!

    Yes, I had critical problems with the mid-August major Windows update on three all in one computers I had running Windows 7. It killed all three computers. One lost the operating system, and the other two (all identical) booted a blue screen with stuff I couldn't understand. Restarted them millions of times. No luck. lost everything on all three of them. Wound up buying two brand new all in ones running Windows 8.1 Pro. So frustrating.

    There are problems with the update. Microsoft recommends uninstalling it if possible. Here is some technical info....http://www.bit-tech.net/news/bits/20...-patch-crash/1 Probably too little too late but before loading down or updating anything there is something called a restore point on the computer....it is always a good idea to create one before doing anything. It restores your pc to working condition prior to updating if it goes south.

    Thank you! I did remove the update before calling Microsoft but that didn't fix the problems. We did have restore points. When setting back on one didn't work, I tried another. If my son ever figures out where his Windows 7 disc is, we might be able to do something but more likely we will probably end up replacing it with an Apple product.

    The thing I like about Mac is they hardly ever get viruses- so I'm told. Although I have a Virus Scan that seems to be pretty active so not sure on that. But I had an Internet incident in which I was scammed. I was almost hacked but luckily they couldn't get anything from my computer. Macs are almost impossible to get into- so I'm told.

    I am a fan of Apple computers. They just seem to have less issues but like you mentioned....definitely expensive. Somewhere back in the stone age, we were doing a computer{I am a computer guy by trade but my heart lies in other things} show and while installing new systems I was first exposed to Apple. I have been impressed ever since. Truth be told I do not use my laptop much anymore. Guitars sharks and tattoos and basenotes....the only thing that stops me from getting the Iphone or Samsung...they do as much as pc's these days is the movie maker function which doesn't work all that well. Still holding on to the Blackberry until it self destructs.

    Macs do get viruses....they just get less with their operating system. The ratio is about 12 to one. If microsoft gets 12k viruses Macs will get 1k.The problem is that Macs...probably because of this do not add anti viral software...so beware. I also believe that sites visited have a lot to do with viruses.

    Good to know. I guess it's a good thing my computer guy put that on my computer, then.

    In fifteen years using Macs I didn't had a single virus. At least no one I noticed.
    But I am actually thinking of switching to Linux/Ubuntu.
