I'm having laptop issues, so this is posted very late. Also, not too sure of the quality, but I'm giving it my best shot.
I should probably have posted something containing a heart with an arrow or a bullet through it....I'm definitely experiencing a love/hate relationship with technology right now!

    Another great one Susan. I think we all want to throw our computers in front of a moving train from time to time.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the shot. In fact, it's a clear depiction of what's going on in a lot of homes. A lot of "Little People" are suffering because of the actions of "big people" irresponsibility and short sighted actions.

    I see they are getting tips on the shoestring budget... as for tech problems, I too have had the urge to hold my computer in front of a fast moving train .. but then figured that was what the computer was trying to get me to do, so I didn't. So far. ;-) Great shot in spite of all the techglitches.

    The message is awesome same as the image.Don't feel bad, Susan, I'm having some problem too.My comp is so slow, I have to re-start it every now and then. So frustrating.Maybe I can use the shoestring and tie my comp and throw it to a power line or some tree..
