My screen name is a play on ChiTown where I live, i.e.Chicago. As a carpenter, I always watch the weather closely since it affects the day's work.

Now that we have a SCOTUS (So-called president of the United States) to test our endurance, I have discovered that my computer is no longer supported by Apple, nor Firefox.
It's an imac from late 2007. It lasted a long time, and had many fixes and upgrades during our "Great Recession" when I couldn't afford a new computer. They all recommend I buy a new computer. This makes me very sad. :-(
It has been a good machine, a fine machine. Sorry to see it go. I guess I will "drive it until the wheels fall off", and then I will get a new one, reluctantly. "Make America great" my ass.
I wonder how many peripherals will have to be bought next? Printers, back-up hard drives, web design programs, partitions, (windows quit working with an upgrade by Norton last year) disc readers, to mention a few.
It's been a kick "talking" to you guys and gals, and posting a few pictures of weather and birds, which will also be terminated for reasons unknown.
I am becoming a dinosaur. I don't want to change, I just want to improve my current conditions and I'll do some work to achieve that effect. But an asteroid is approaching my world, to extend the metaphor. These wheels are on fire and this ship is taking-on water, to mangle the metaphor.
And now they're gonna get a new service sans wunderphotos and who knows what else? Will the past be saved for posterity? I wonder what the next generation blog will bring? I'll see you-all on the other side of the gulf...
