Tuesday Thoughts.

Up early with my bride, watched the terrible news about the quake in New Zealand and right away thought of one of my fellow bloggers MARGIE ANNE -NEW ZEALAND DAIRY she lives in the country outside of Christ Church NZ. Luckily later in the day she posted and said her and her family are all accounted for and okay. Her two sons live In Christ Church and she says their homes were damaged, but no one injured. From The looks of the news it is a real mess there. Fires and buildings collapsed, I would imagine broken natural gas lines fueling the fires till they can be shut off. I told Donna I hope we have an aircraft carrier or big ship nearby to assist them in their time of need, my Dad spent some time in New Zealand and Australia , also New Guinea, During WW2. So I always considered them our allies and friends.

We pray here all goes well for them.

Not much going on today at the Weeb Ranch it is cooler but pleasant it is supposed to reach 40 today but that will be it with a low tonight in the low 20's. But we missed the snow action this week..The satellite shows clear skies all the way west past Kansas so we should have a nice day tomorrow too.

Went to Walgreen's earlier, Donna had a prescription that needed to be picked up and she said to get the printout for my prescriptions for 2010 for the taxes. That was the only time I left the house today.

Finally got my Google Chrome to work, right after I replaced the hard drive it crashed and would not open the browser I would get a screen that said snap, or oops. I tried deleting it and reinstalling it and it still didn't work, so today I deleted the whole thing again and then after the it said the program was deleted in control panel, I went into my computer and checked document and settings under Identities, All Users, Owner, & Donna, and found some folders named Chrome so I deleted everything with Google chrome I could find. After I was satisfied that nothing was left. I redownloaded and installed the program and it runs just fine.

I know there are a lot of IE lovers out there, but I seem to get a lot of popups with IE. When I use Chrome I never see a popup. It also seems to be faster with finding the websites.

That's about it for today, I hope everyone is doing fine. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Hi Sam and Donna.

    I'm so upset. Tears keep filling my eyes. I'll update my journal from time to time throughout the day.

    This is a major tragedy for the country and the Prime Minister is even considering calling a National Emergency which enables them to take wider action.

  2. My first thought when hearing of the New Zealand quake was of Margie Anne. I was so glad to see her blog earlier today and an update just now.

    Isn't it strange how we become connected via our blogs. Not that many years ago who would have thought this possible.

  3. I too am saddened by the news from New Zealand. I hold them in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Thanks for the link to Margie Anne. What a horrible time they are having. :(

  5. Glad to hear Margie Anne is doing well and that all the family is accounted for. Saw it briefly on the news tonight - what devastation.

    Glad to get caught up with you and all the family. ? for you ~ is google chrome like firefox? That is what I use ~ Mozilla Firefox.

    Take care and glad to be back reading and catching up with all my blog family.

    Thanks too for your encouragement and prayers for us as we traveled from WA to TX.

  6. I saw some video of the earthquake in New Zealand and it looked pretty scary. Glad to hear Margie-Anne is o.k.

    Chrome is definitely a lot faster than other browsers right now and does a great job of blocking pop-ups.

  7. Glad your friend is safe. It sure is a mess over there. I am sure we will help, since we help everyone else in the world.

  8. I'd been wondering how Margie Anne was impacted to. Just read her update also. This is a good reminder that since I live in an earthquake area, I need to prepare. Disruption with water, sewage and roads can create some pretty grizzly health conditions.
