Five for Friday


I am linking up with  Doodle bugs Teaching's Five for Friday linky party.  This seems like a fun show 'n tell.  

Do you remember all the hype about the big Facebook rollout for a new search option?  That was the day my computer nightmare began.  Initially I only had trouble when I was on Facebook, not all the time . . . it was very random.  You never knew when it was going to strike.  But, when it did I would get an "ah snap" message like the one below.  I thought maybe it was a google issue.  I checked for software updates . . . no that wasn't the problem.  I uninstalled google and downloaded the latest version of google chrome.  Still the problem continued at the most inconvenient times!  Then it spread to other sites . . . ugh!  It was like one of those old movies where the giant blog is invading a town.  I had the same problem on Firefox and Safari.  Next, I bought Norton Antivirus to  check for viruses.  I have an Apple so I thought I was virus-free, but I wanted to double check.  I didn't have a virus so I figured it was time to call in the experts.  I made an appointment with the Genius Bar at the Apple Store.  The Apple employee ran diagnostic tests on my computer and it showed it was working alright. So, my nightmare continues . . . . . let me know if you have suggestions.

If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I am a foster mom for kittens for a local animal shelter.  My current kitten has been with my family a couple of weeks.  My daughter named her Zuni. When we first got her she was very shy.  This week she suddenly came out of her shell.  She now loves to play with us.  Here's a picture of her:

Like most of you, one of my family's New Year's resolution is to eat healthier.  I have been searching Pinterest for some new recipes.  I found one this week that my family LOVED!  Click on the picture to get the recipe:

While strolling through my Pinterest boards this week I decided that it was time to do some housecleaning.  I got rid of some of my boards, added covers to other boards so it's easier to tell their topic, and rearranged them.  Click on the picture to go see what I did:

For Christmas, my family gave me several seasons of the t.v. show 24 hours.  I've always been amazed that we get all these channels with our cable package yet there are nights when there is nothing that we want to watch on t.v..  How does that happen?  Now with all these episodes at my disposal, 24 hours is our new "go to" show when there isn't anything on t.v. worth watching.

Here is a forum with others getting the same error and multiple ways to try and fix it. I hope it helps!


We have the boxed set of 24, too, but haven't started watching. Like you, when nothing is on TV or recorded on the DVR then we watch TV shows on Netflix or DVD. Now our public library has the box sets of full seasons so that makes it free sometimes, too!
