Fine snow began falling here yesterday afternoon, causing numerous
fender-benders.  The best news was that we had double digit temperatures
for the first time in days.  This cold spell dropped to slightly below
zero, but must have had more humidity than our 1990 cold spell when the
temp dropped to minus 25 degrees F.  Last week felt colder, and it wasn't
just me, eight years older, because much younger people were complaining
about it.  Temp is supposed to get to 33 by 5 today, but it's snowing big
flakes, as it did overnight.  We now have about 5 inches of light powder,
and the nearest ski areas have excellent conditions. 

I used to use an ergonomic keyboard, that we had to install.  Now my
computer (regular keyboard) is in the shop, so I'm using the old computer
with ergonomic keyboard.  I really detest this keyboard now.  Does anyone
know if i can just plug in the old keyboard and have it work without
uninstalling this one and installing that one?  BTW, this Microsoft
ergonomic frotz consists of keys identified by decals that wear off.  I'm
not all that impressed with the ergonomic-ability of it either.  Margaret L
