Hi Lisa,

You need a new laptop. I'm sending you a few bucks and maybe you can raise enough for a new one. Broken hinge leads to bad things.

Thank you for all that you do. To steal your line and modify it, The world is a better place with allhatnocattle.

BTW  why do you do what you do?

Jerry in BC


Hi Jerry,

Thank you for your kind words and kash!

My PC is not doing well. It is starting to act like the last PC I had, that died from a bad motherboard. Sigh.

I do work my PC's like a work horse though. Fingers crossed it will last till I can get a new one. I shudder at the thought.

Jerry, I do what I do because it is a labor of love. I love my country and all the beautiful people in it and hate to see the harm caused by Republicans. Thanks for asking.

Take care,
Lisa

Hey GOP Voters, The GOP Doesn't Want You To Have Healthcare. Got It?
