The Computer Genius cleaned up my computer and pronounced it healthy and well. Next week, he'll replace some software that's been giving me trouble, and I'll be set. I wonder if it was an acccident that while I was waiting for him, I made a quiltie prayer flag, with a St. Jude medal. St. Jude, patron saint of the last resort (I don't like the moniker "lost causes" because if a cause is lost, it's lost) is a favorite of mine. My subconscious at work again.
Have a happy day!
