When the crowd sings

Probably the best rendition of the National Anthem ever. Boston's TD Garden for the Bruin's game. Rene Rancourt, who is generally a bit too over the top for me, does the most incredible thing. He starts the anthem and then lets the 17,000+ crowd finish it. Not a dry eye in the house.


I tried to embed the video, but it doesn't like my blog platform apparently. So hit the link above to go see it.
   
This is the best of the videos out there as it is from the beginning and shows the Fire Department Color Guard walking out.

Also touching was seeing Bruin's Defensive man, Shawn Thornton, a Canadian, singing along.

The Sad Saga of the Computer

After having a work network meltdown happen at the same time my work computer decided to develop a fatal flaw in the hard drive and completely crash, I finally managed to dig out from under all the mess. Things are back up and running again. Whew.

Being as I am conscientious, I had 2 sets of backup disks for my work computer... for all the good it did me. 

Microsoft can suck it. I tried to restore Windows 7 from my backup disks to a new SSD (that is a Solid State Drive). I wasn't able to clone the old hard drive because of the humongous flaw. I was getting "broken pipe" messages every time I tried. 

How stupid of me to want to get a smaller, significantly faster, hard drive. What was I thinking! Windows believes I should stick with huge, slow hard drives, even if I don't need them. 

GAH! 

Windows won't restore my valid paid for OS to the new drive because it's smaller than the original drive.

Therefore, I installed Ubuntu. I won't go with Windows again unless pushed to it. Ubuntu is working beautifully. 

However, I am still pissed off that I couldn't restore the basic OS to the new drive.  I paid for it!

The bastards.

Frogs

Last night I heard frogs croaking for the first time this season.  Maybe Spring really is here.  We'll see.  There is still snow in my front yard.  Not much but some. 

I'm ready for warm weather.

Maybe the Hulk is just what they need

Saw this headline on one of my news feeds today...

Republican Bruce Rauner raises $1.3 million for possible Illinois governor bid

And I swear I thought it said "Bruce Banner"...

I'm wearing my contacts so it must be wishful thinking.  The Hulk in politics... oh yeah, that so works for me.
