    Well, the time has come to replace my desktop computer.  I have stretched its life as much as possible but no the DVD drive doesn't work, none of the USB ports work, it freezes when I try to copy and paste files...  I had not realized how old this machine was!  I've had it since 2011!  I believe it has provided me with good service for 13 years! 
    So, I just ordered a new monster computer from Dell.  I9 processor, 64 GB RAM, 4 TB hard in two hard drives, liquid cooling...the works.  Hopefully it lasts as long as this one!  LOL  I did get the extended warranty for the next 4 years.  The one thing I hate is having to transfer data from one computer to the other.  Thankfully, most of my stuff is backed up online, so that will make it easier to restore files.  But setting up programs is going to be a PITA!!!!  Wish me luck!

    RickR just got outstanding medical lab results.  Lowest cholesterol number in over 20 years for example. 
    I'm not sure the reason beyond luck, but I have been exercising more (biking, lifting) and eating better (more fruits/veg, less sugar, caffeine) and less.  But I'm very grateful and hopeful things stay this good.

    Time just flies by. I can't believe it's already been a week since my birthday. This year, I celebrated it with gifts, family dinner, and lunch with former coworkers. It was a fun one, so I wanted to share.
    Family dinner at the restaurant of my choosing. Son 2's girlfriend joined us.

    My wife forgot to bring the cake to the dinner, so we had it when we returned home 😂 My family isn't much into cakes, so that's why it's small.

    My former co-workers from my Amazon days. Mathias' (guy on the far left) birthday is in a couple of weeks. We had this thing going for a few years where I bought him lunch on his birthday and he bought me lunch on my birthday. This year, we broke tradition. Although he wanted to pay, I beat him to the machine with my card. It's been a few years since we got together, so I wanted to buy. He's going to buy me lunch later this month. These guys were my engineers when I managed the Fire tablet localization.

    Gift from my son and his girlfriend. My son was very surprised when I told him that I didn't have the NES. Well, I fixed that a few days later. I bought a NES top loader. It's been sent to get the RGB mod, so I'll show it off when I get it back in a few weeks.

    Home-made candles were gifted to me from a church friend. I don't think my photo does it justice--it's very beautiful and very fragrant.

    Anyone up for a TI-99/4A high score game contest?  If so, what game would you recommend we go with?  Of course Classic 99 (emulation) as well as real iron would be allowed.

    Micro Pinball has arrived!  It took about two weeks, which was expected.
    FedEX delivered it to the wrong address (the house next door).  No biggie, but still.  Not cool.  My poor neighbor was embarrassed that I saw her in PJ's.  Oops.
    I'm not sure that I'll have time to open and assemble this today, but I will post here when I do.

    The "broken" robo vac works once I replaced the battery. It's kind of impressive how much stuff it picks up. I wonder how it knows where the home base is?  I bet Rod Sterling would have written a killer Twilight Zone episode about these things.
