Well, last evening it finally happened, my internal hard drive on the laptop computer died. I was inquiring about a replacement today (Saturday) but likely won't find one until Monday when I go to HP in Richmond. So for now it's phone call and emails (I can read those at work) but msn chats are out for now until the hard drive has been replace and the programs restored.
So with all the stress and such, I went for a walk around the seawall at Stanley Park this afternoon (all the way around). Long walks seem to relieve the stress that has built up over time. It was overcast with the sun trying to reveal itself through the cloud cover. The temperature today was sitting at 12 degrees Celsius. Rain is expected tomorrow.
There are definitely signs of spring in the lower mainland. Azaleas, forsythia, cherry trees, some saucer magnolias and all sorts of spring flowers such as hyacinths, daffodils, pansies, english daisies and others are in full bloom. So while the rest of Canada is still deep in the throws of winter, we are enjoying warm weather that comes with spring. Enjoy yours when spring does come. - Volker
