Silenced for a day by the demons of the computer, but battling back with this duo

More fun and hijinks in cyberworld. After a torturous process of getting the ACER to log on without the Ethernet cable it promptly said the batter was dead, goodbye.

When I went to take it out like I’ve done with my other laptops, it only took two hours of unscrewing the microscopic screws to find out you CAN’T take out the ACER battery.

but a video from You Tube showed me the existence of this tiny hole on the bottom of the computer and when I inserted a safety pin, it made the battery accessible or alive or whatever and now it’s charging away and I can post something.

One would think that would have been mentioned in all the ACER material I pored over but, once again, it wasn’t. Oh, if computer makers would just spend 1/100th of the time on making computer understandable to computer users than trying to add yet one more useless gimmick, we’d all be so much better off.filberthazel



The more I think about this the more interesting it seems so will ask Kenneth Klemow his thoughts on this. Was at Frances Slocum yesterday and found American hazelnut growing on a shrub; not that unusual. But the shrub next to it, with its leaves entangled in the American hazlenut, was its cousin, beaked hazlenut. Would these two plants normally grow in such propinquity (and close to each other too :–). I’ve never seen it before, have you?

Beaked hazelnut gets its specific epithet (cornuta) from the Latin word for horn, referring to the horny projection on the beaked fruit. In contrast to its cousin, American hazel, beaked hazelnut fruits do not bear red, glandular hairs. The nuts of beaked hazelnut are edible, and provide an important food source for hares, birds, squirrels, and many other animals.
