    Most recently, in all the Yahoo changes, the format of Q&A has changed, and one in particular I find to be annoying at the very least. I depend on Spell Check, and I'm thankful it exists, but the new format in Q & A seems to be "not" worked out yet? I may type, spelling incorrectly, and let spell check do it's thing, but often what happens is that it crosses over two words. No matter that they may both be spelled correctly, to let Spell check adjust them, then usually brings them together, adding what it deems to be a correction, yet leaving what has been noted as incorrect. All that accomplishes, in my case is to click ignore, go back, re-type the misspelling, or leave it ignored, and then move on. Does anyone else find this to be a tedious process?

    "Philosopher Musicians", bringing us current headlines they'd sing, adding bylines. I grew up with them as my peers, shared their thoughts over beers and some tears; thought connected, even when they were rejected, "trash talking, microphones squawking, never will be nothin, lay abouts", yet they rarely shouted and endure as has been found out, still messaging us, in their passion and lust for a life that maybe seems off the track, but we call them back, those of us who cared anyway, and shared every day in what they had to say. Some still live, too many are gone, I still feel a fondness for what they expressed, and those of them as old as me, still free to sing, bring us back to then and now, deserve at least respect, some honor, for spanning generations without serious degradtation. I hope there's Rock, Blues, and some Country news, in a Heaven I hope to peruse.

I kinda like the word "BUM",and I sit on mine now as the train gathers STEAM I see fields of cows,munching content in fields,Emerald green. The "Box Car" just a means to an end I had no real notion of I never felt like the back side of the country fit me like a glove. "On the Road Again" could have been,and again,and again, sung to a restless spirit, who rarely asks "Where or When?" I was never suited for the type of commute,on a wheeled chair a distance from desk to copier,with my once full head of hair. I even look for those places, no one else might go off line,rutted paths,and my hair never did re-grow. I never long for your glass and steel towers,spending hours looking out,wanting to be soaked in those afternoon showers. I don't much envy your extravagant cars,or 5 O'clock after work, stops at a bar. I may never have so much I guess, but have so much learned, that MORE is often LESS.

They can/I can restore the Laptop XP IF in fact I can be online connected, but that issue is currently a prob, since my DSL is malfunctioning and I'm on dial up for any WWW availability. That connection issue will be resolved. I just want to know how to create XP restore disks, from this laptop, and system I have installed. Thank you.

Amethyst clusters hang ripening; sweet, looking like so many gems waiting to be gathered.

    "Winged Gift" translated from Greek. She is that not only to me, but many. I realize that many come here very personally, and I don't, for righteous cause, but some "THINGS" are so Sacred, shared best with 1. ALDARA, my "supension", EVER my itention, while knowing I'm often not a healing medication, No thought in the moment of flowery hearts, or re-starting starts, or lust about parts; Just someone I'm bonded to, not "BOUND" another, with whom I've so often found those joys and aches that do so ground to other fantasies, (realities?) casually denied as so often we hide, in microcosims or SCHISMS, we might think offer more than what we considered, or denied before. No over the top, gushing prose here just a hope that my words, and/or feelings, touch her ear, letting her know I am still near. I'm less than me, without that essence and as earlier in attempts more silly and pleasant, I'm mostly affected in an infected way, by what bothers her most, most every day.

    I did try in many ways that year, to sit without seeming bored and it wasn't truly so difficult if I focused only on Ms. Fuentes. She electrified my senses; me, the kid who rode in from the farm. That chewing gum trick worked for awhile as she'd take it, then took me out to the hall, "Stand here until I come for you please" and that pleased me no end, as I watched her through the door window I was hidden and didn't offend, unless she glanced, saw me leering, while she tried to maintain the class flow, still wearing that Flamenco dress. We grow though, and I gave up gum, never much caring for it anyway, after seeming so dumb, to the rest of the group as they at least acted as if they cared how to diagram. As a final test, an essay of sorts, we all had to submit. Determined by then, not wanting to quit, I laid my piece on her desk. "Thank you" she smiled, reading. "I hope to see you next year." Had I just been invited to go through this over again?

My teacher looked better in the Flamenco dress I drew defacing the cover of my book. $25 for this? than that high neck, tight collar, Laura Engles Frock; but she had pretty eyes, a smile to knock school boys from their seats and it was an elective situation, so not everyone paid attention, when she slipped into Argentinian, "CHICLE!, Donde Este?" Then holding out her hand, walking the aisles, she slipped back into, "Spit it now, and tell me where this Author is going." I rarely knew, but chewed every day, just to have her take my gum. I did learn a lot however, from Ms. Fuentes. Such things as I find delightful still, like Rythmn, Rhyme, Not looking at the time, but they were good times had by all that fall, in Creative Writing 101.

I click the radio button, as I scan the front of the diner, and signal anyone listening, "I'm outta here; Ninety Niner" I move past some guys leaning, enjoying a pre-highway smoke, and overhear a way too early, short skirt, waitress joke. As I make a way to the counter I see my set up prepared, while others seated close look on, but not as if they cared. I'm greeted by my favorite night owl; my crisp uniformed hauntress. She smiles as she pours coffee, in her pale blue, yellow trimmed dress. I return the smile remove my cap, and politely nod a "Good Morning Barb." "It's been a long haul, just bring me some ketchup, and a major basket of Carbs."

    I gifted my lady for Happy Heart day, and over and over I heard her say, "Thank you, I love you too" what more could I expect as she kissed me, grabbed me, and hugged my neck. "It was nothing my Angel, my Goddess, my dear, I thought these Diamonds should grace your ears." There was an issue in some allergic attack and she asked if we could perhaps take them back. We returned to the Kiosk, in the depths of the mall fighting back shoppers, with packages and all. The clerk at the counter seemed truly quite bored but managed a smile face as we moved toward, the vendor who sold me these precious baubles with which I'd hoped might entice a romp and dawdle. The vendor/owner of the jewel mart was initially busy, in his craft and "art", but stopped long enough to come look, with a sigh keeping that strange thing clamped to one eye.

If it's someone approaching to bum a smoke, I'll turn back around, "I pass" "Oh wait it's me down there reflecting", now looking up from the floor, "I guess I coulda recognized you, I've been here often before." There's not much more so harsh on the throat, than inhaled, Cigarette smoke But I know how to fix it, I'll just down this Bourbon and choke. I used to come here innocently, just some time to have some fun, but lately I go unrecognized, and I sure don't know anyone. There's two juke boxes in the place, and I have no clue as to why. On one I can hear "Free Bird", competing with Hendrix, kissing the sky. I guess I'll have to leave soon, I'm down to my last, loose change and the bartender's tapping his fingers, as my pocket lint I rearrange. "I'll be going now" I say, and get a vague wave off to send me, as the door slammed hard behind my exit, I swear I heard "Yippee"
