Keyboard cleaningJanuary 29th, 2017 at 4:54:05 pm
My keyboard had been having a trouble with the letter E. After being pressed, it stayed down for about 15 seconds. Sometimes it made lots of extra e's, sometimes it didn't. I didn't have a spare keyboard with a USB plug in my large bin of old computer parts, but lots without them, and didn't want to go to Best Buy for another one, so decided to try solving the problem myself.
I had to fight my way past a lot of clutter my wife put in front of my tool area of the garage. All I needed was a simple small Phillips screwdriver. Then off went the screws. I then snapped off of top and man there was a lot of crud inside. And how did all that hair get in there? I shook both parts upside down and could have formed a small pile with all the crud that drifted to the floor. I suspect most of it was crumbs of food and dry skin flakes.
After I snapped the top back on and screwed the pieces together, it was good as new. A rare repair job that went well.
Mindy CohnMay 30th, 2014 at 9:47:59 am
Normally I'm not one to remember dreams, but last night I thought I woke up around 3 AM, as I often do, went downstairs to dink around on the Internet, and read that Mindy Cohn died. It seemed very realistic, as I read reports of her death online. Then I went here to write about my thoughts on Mindy and the Facts of Life in general. Finally, I finished and went back to sleep.
When I got up I went to check on comments about my personal obituary for Mindy and didn't see that I wrote anything. I Googled her name and she seems to be alive and well. Obviously, I must have dreamed that I woke up and did everything I just wrote about. Very odd. Maybe remnants of feelings over my father's recent death. However, it is strange I would dream about Mindy. Although I will take anybody on in Facts of Life trivia, I never especially identified with Mindy's character Natalie.
I welcome the psychoanalysts of the forum to provide their own interpretation.
