Mikie - so sorry if I made you think I felt uncomfortable. I'm a geek. I love all technology. I actually own 2 iPads, as well as 2 Android tablets. I have a MacBook, a Windows computer and a laptop running Linux. None of the differences really matter much to me. Well, except I gotta say I don't like Windows 10 at all.... Rock - I lived in Bavaria as a kid. We used to get 3' of snow. You could only see the tips of the German Shepherd's ears and tail when she ran through it. There was also a really big hill (big enough that people could - and did - ski on it) behind the house we lived in. It was FANTASTIC to sled down. It was not so much fun to climb back up. Granni - You made me think of a funny family story. When my 2 older brothers and I were all still quite young and my father was in Vietnam, we had a nice snowfall. Although we were "stair-steps," my oldest brother (only 2 years older than me) was the only one who was really big enough to go out and play in the snow, so my DM dressed him up warmly. He went out and played, and of course, got soaking wet and cold. But he wasn't done playing. He came in, got changed into fresh dry clothes and went back out again, getting cold and wet again. He came back in to get more dry clothes, but my DM said he couldn't go back out. He sat down and cried and said, "But Daddy could fix it warm outside!" Ah, the faith of children in their parents when they are that young!! DS made a pork pot roast in the Instant Pot this evening. Very tasty! Back to my quilting.
