Pope Benedict XVI resigned today, citing age at, I think, 85. Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.
As if in sympathy with the pope, my computer took a header and will need repair or replacement. I do not plan to send up a white smoke signal when/if success is achieved. Writing on my wife's laptop is cumbersome as a club foot ... at least for me.
So ... a day of spending money I can ill afford... making me aware again that I would rather do Internet stuff than watch TV. My age, like the pope's, imposes limitations, though I imagine the pope might call me a whipper-snapper from his vantage point.
