OMG--I can not believe it. My computer got hit my lightning. This is the second one to be killed by lightning. And to top that I had two oak trees to get hit by lightning. All this in a period of eight years. Told dh we needed a lightning rod. So anyway he buys a new lap top--a real small one 9 inches. Hello--did he forget our age. My head hurts from the eye strain!! The old computer will be repaired by gateway but will be about a month. The only cost was UPS shipping $ 40.00., so I guess I lucked out.
