Let’s Hear It for Age!
Not exactly buoyed by the current state of the country or, indeed the world, but still I find myself realizing my own personal good fortune. First, to have reached and surmounted so-called middle age with a nimble mind intact. To have (by pure happenstance) gotten into computers way back in ’84 in a great contract job at Portland’s Pacific Power and Pacificorp. Plus to be way beyond worrying what other people think or whether I might not succeed at something I want to do.
On the downside, I’m a lifelong non-mechanical person and have been on my own for a long time. (I didn’t hang my first picture ’till I was 31 and it took half a dozen nail holes to accomplish the task.) So I still struggle with mundane chores like mounting a wall mirror or assembling things. And indeed my world today seems chock full of things that need assembly!
The good news is that I did succeed in assembling something new to me — a USB turntable. This wonderful device is leading me to turn at least most favored cuts of old cherished vinyl record albums into cd’s or to just convert them into mp3 files as needed for importing to my blogs.
Please listen and stay tuned …
