For the most part I like Windows 10, except for the fact I can not connect to Live Writer.   It seems to me that the features I like are being discontinued.   Not discontinued per say, but just not being updated, along with some features of Google.   I expect that at some point in time I will get a message that Blogger will go away too.

I wanted to use the Live Writer to write in my blog and I kept getting an error message, grrrrr.  One of the instruction had a person going into Windows Powershell, what the hell is that???    I just can't take some writers word that this will be OK and not screw up the whole works.

Enough of that for now.  Yesterday my daughter and I had a visit to the Phipps Conservatory for the Spring Flower Show.   I really enjoyed this because there was not a miniature train to be seen.   One of my comments a while back was I went to the Flower Show to see flowers not trains.  

At one time, a few years back, there was a huge parking lot next to the museum/ library.   The powers that be decided, like a lot in political positions, that they knew better than the citizens.   The plan was to remove the parking lot and install a park. good idea except for the fact is all you can walk on are the concrete sidewalks and the grass portions are blocked off with Do Not Walk on the Grass signs.  Go figure that one.

Next we went to the CARNEGIE MUSEUM and walked around there a bit and then across the park, and had lunch at the CONFLICT KITCHEN   which is featuring Persian Food.   I had chicken with a sauce made from walnuts and pomegranates, which sounds like a weird combination, but it was very tasty.  

After that we went to the Carnegie Library and then off to do some other shopping.    I have no idea how far we walked but I was exhausted by the evening.


  1. The flowers are beautiful - - and the chicken with walnut and pomegranate sauce sounds extremely intriguing.

    I have been wanting to update to Windows 10 - and I ALMOST did it (several times) but I'm really hesitant because of the unwanted changes that it will inflict on my computer. Heck, it took me over a year to get used to Windows 8.

  2. One computer did well with updating to Windows 10. My other mini seemed to be doing well, but I could not open settings and therefore I could not do the safety updates. But, if it does not work Microsoft will help you get it right. There are a few MS stores over the country.
