Stay Your Ass At Home Day 3

Date Day. Was going to go to KFC drive-thru then eat along the waterfront in Port Orchard. Decided not to cause I don’t want to get food from someplace I can’t see the cook. I trust me and SWMBO not to be sick; but I don’t trust “The Cook” to not be sick and pass this crap on to us. It’s a sorry state of affairs.

So, we’re staying home today. She’s off in her room doing genealogy stuff and watching CSI. I’m puttering around my room and kitchen and doing “stuff.” Every once in awhile I walk to her room and give her a smooch.


Im not doing too bad except for a runny nose and my ears are ringing like there’s no tomorrow. Have been ringing loudly for the past 15 hours or so. Starting to bother me. Along with not getting any quality sleep last night I wouldn’t have been any fun on a “date” anyway. (Like I ever am much fun on a date!?!)

Building my Toshiba Satellite laptop up with the latest version of Linux Mint Xfce for a backup in case my desktop goes TU. Setting SWMBO up as a user and getting her Roots Magic genealogy program to working. Seems to do just fine under Wine. Getting her to sit down and test it is going to be the hard part!


I’m using Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa and now I’m thinking of shutting down my desktop and upgrading it to the latest version of Mint. Think I’ll make a backup and try “sudo apt updrade-distro” just to see what it does.

Well, was going to post this yesterday, of course, but I made a change to something important in my Linux Mint 1.3 and the whole thing crashed and needed to be reinstalled. So I’ve been doing that. Decided I might as well “upgrade” to the latest version of Xfce while doing it. That’s been going interestingly.

There’s a few things I’m not liking, but, nothing that’ll make me change to a different distro. So far.

And my ears are still ringing.
