    Windoze 10

    I got an invite to upgrade to Windoze 10 pop up on my desktop this morning. I dunno if I should accept? Yay or nay? My monitor isn't a touch screen or anything like that. I am running Windoze 7 right now on a 1 y.o PC, a milf in computer age terms. I guess.

    Lower Back "pop" Yesterday

    So whilst attempting the herculean task of tying up my shoelaces yesterday I felt a "pop" in my lower back.. I'm not in any severe debilitating pain, I'd call it constant slight discomfort.
