The fake snowflake

The fake snowflake
I love coming across patches of delicate ice formations and this area was near the edge of a very tiny creek in Griffith Woods on 10 February 2014. It always seems so wrong if one has to walk over an area like this, destroying all those amazingly formed crystals. Someone (lazy and thoughtless) had thrown this empty McDonald's paper cup into the creek, where ice crystals had grown over it. Just amused me a little to see the "fake snowflake".

A few days ago, I called in at a shopping centre to see if a small computer store was still in existence. A number of years ago, they did such a good job of transferring all the data from one computer to a new one for me. The time to go through all this has again rolled around and I was hoping so much that the same store would be there. I was so relieved to find it and now have to face the nerve-wracking time of getting used to a new machine (with Windows 7, not 8!). My new computer is still in its box (since late December), waiting for the day when I finally get myself sufficiently organized to bring it out. Thought if I made an appointment, I would be forced into getting ready : ) Really, really hoping it won't be too difficult to set up and then work out how to use it. Guessing it will be maybe three days or so that I will be without a computer, so when I suddenly "disappear" next week, you will know the reason : )
