A MAC Attack!

It's been a looooong time since my last post and I'm afraid I don't have a very good excuse, well, actually I do...a new MAC! Yes, I finally took the plunge and got my first new computer in eight years; a shiny new 17-inch Intel Duo-Core iMAC . All of the rumours I'd heard about how user-friendly and intuitive Apple computers are proved to be entirely true. It was such an easy set-up I actually wondered what I'd missed! Since I tend to hold off on these kind of purchases until I can do it big, I splurged and picked up a 30-Gig iPod and a laser printer as well. And this week my Harman/Kardon SoundSticks II arrived via a pretty good deal on eBay. So I'm all suited up to rock the house! Aside from transferring files from the old machine and loading software, the last two weeks have been spent slowly uploading all of my favorite CD's to the hard drive and then onto the iPod. Sweet!

I've also discovered the wonderful world of podcasts and have come across a few that I listen to regularly. My two faves so far though are The Meeting House and The Beautiful Game.

Other than the MAC, we've also redone our spare bedroom, spent a weekend in Toronto at Canada Blooms, and finished the curling season with a 6-1 record. Not to boast too much, but we won our last two games by a combined score of 17-3. Woohoo! Although it's nice to have Tuesday nights free, I'm already looking forward to starting up in the fall again.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something and I've got lots of pictures to post as well so stay tuned!
