To all behind this: The new computer looks wonderful. Thank you all for making it possible. The touch-screen capabilities makes it much more handicapped accessible tan any I have ever owned. Our son, Chris, keeps me trying to gain some proficiency. Thank you to Maggie Dwyer, Kat laughing and so many more wonderful Mudcatters.

With gratitude,

Love,
Art Thieme

What this new computer means is that anything he sees on the screen that has an underline or color change to indicate it is a link, he can touch the screen at that point to open it. It doesn't need the mouse to do that kind of task.

Do you have or need a stylus to make precise touches on the screen? You can get them very inexpensively through places like Amazon. My son (Computer Science major at U of AZ) assures me that the best way to use touch screens is to develop the touch with your hand, but a stylus can help, if you can aim it accurately.

You'll have to tell is if the computer touch screen lets you enlarge items by touching in a couple of places on either side of the item in question and moving your hands apart (like you see on cell phone screens).

Perhaps now you can return to all of those worn out puns! And with the touch screen you'll never lose your touch for them. And with all that memory you'll finally be able to update your files on the type of condoms Mudcatters use!   Speaking of condoms, in France do they sell "American Ticklers?"

Welcome back old friend..........

I have an envelope to mail to Art (I had to dig out his note to me to get his address - sorry for the delay) in which to enclose the envelopes I received so he'll have the address of each person who mailed something, and I'll include the PM or email of anyone who contacted via PayPal. There are a couple of notes in there I think he'd enjoy reading.

Got to worrying 'cause Art hasn't been seen around here for three weeks so I emailed Chris -- he said I could share this update.
Dad was doing very well until Sunday. He has another infection though it seems to be better controlled this time. Even so, he ended up going in the hospital yesterday. Not because it was so bad but because they couldn't get it to go away. Difference between my visit yesterday and talk today is huge improvement. He's at Good ShepherdHospital in Barrington, IL.

Good thoughts to Art and Carol......I also posted this news in the "Jane's Rainbow" thread and we'll get some of that Rainbow Mojo going too. We can always use some more crew on the Jane's Rainbow......Why not drop by and check it out? It has become the Mudcat clearinghouse for good thoughts. A long thread but never too late to join in.

I just found this thread again after following the events of March and April, and chipping in a bit of cash. Hoping for the best now, as is everyone else.

My husband and I ride 150 miles every August to raise money for MS research. We will be riding Aug 3 & 4 this year; Art is one of the people I always think of. What an incredibly sucky disease.

Best to all you wonderful people!

To SRS: We ride bicycles ... 75 miles each day for 2 days. The rides are done all over the country; this is the Wisconsin version. Ours used to be known as the Best Dam Bike Tour, because it started in a town called Beaver Dam and passed a number of river dams along the way. Our team is still called Those Dam Kids.

We consider it sweating for a good cause. You can read more about it here:

http://bikewig.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?fr_id=19765&pg=entry

Art, I hope you're feeling better!! We just played 'Keweenaw Light' on the Simply Folk radio show Sunday night and mentioned your birthday.
