My Computer

Yesterday I brought my computer to a repair place where the owner is Apple certified. I used my password, and it opened. It started to recharge then stopped. The man rebooted, typed my password, and it was rejected. That confused him a bit. I figured my computer liked my touch. He noticed my wonky keyboard and told me that Apple is fixing the keyboards at no cost. He asked me if I had bought extended service. I said I didn’t remember, but it is something I would do. I did, and my computer is covered until next July. He was going to back up all my data then request a box from Apple for sending it safely. When it was returned, he’d load the data. He guess next week, Friday, for its return.

The iPad will let me copy links, but when I paste, it is the link, not the actual page. Now, here’s what I’m asking: would you click on the link for the song or not? I’m missing my Christmas songs, and until my computer is healed, that is the only way I can post. Please comment and let me know. p>

    No problem for me, I actually always copied the links and pasted them into my audio player to avoid javascript, tracking and ads but as a kind of computer nerd I’m certainly not the average KTCC guest anyway.
    Maybe just post a song link so everyone can try?
    Btw, did you include the “https://” when trying to post music with your iPad? You should. I haven’t tried recently but a while ago it made a difference. Embedded video with https in link, just the link appeared without the https in front.

      I used the share it link from YouTube. I think it had the whole address, but I’ll check just in case. I was just feeling accomplished figuring out how to copy and paste.

      I’m going to try later. I never did get upstairs to the gifts. I did some cleaning down here, and it took quite a while.

      I didn’t remember I had bought the warranty, but it is what I’d do.

      It is going to get warm here, up into the 50’s.

    No issues here, I am playing Bob Dylan “Christmas in the Heart” on continuous repeat

    I think I could only be lured away by Andy Williams or Perry Como

    It’s certainly worth a try. I’ll continue to visit your blog regardless as to whether there is music or not.

    Hi Kat,

    I didn’t know which Mac Laptop you had but I read that Apple had a free repair for certain laptop keyboards. Glad to hear that your computer was covered and being repaired.

    The great thing about Christmas music is everyone knows the words and melodies. All you have to do is list or say the name of the song and we all know the lyrics. For example: “The Christmas Song”, Mel Torme. Instantly the words “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your ears” enters my brain. I can hear Mel’s velvet fog voice singing the song. Just fill in the blank.

    Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer, __________. Gene Autry is the answer.

    Joy to the World _________.

    It Came Upon A Midnight Clear ___________.

    Do You Hear What I Hear ____________.

    You have to make up your own list because I’m Jewish and don’t know all the songs. 🙂

    Today was partly cloudy with high temperatures in the low 70s.

      The guy at the shop told me that the keyboard fix would cost nothing. After he saw I had the extended warranty, he said the whole fix would be free.

      I love all the music of Christmas. I wouldn’t expect you to know the carols. I am always amazed that despite their being played only during the season all of us know the words. I’ve been listening in the car.

      Do You Hear- Bing Crosby I think is the singer.

      Cold here today. There is a warm up coming next week.

      • Bob Cohen Says:

        You are correct! Bing Crosby

        Many of the Christmas songs were written by Jews such as White Christmas and the Christmas Song. I know the carols because I went to public school in Dallas before Madelyne Murray O’Hair got the Supreme Court to ban prayer in public schools. Every day we had a devotional over the PA in the morning after the announcements and a prayer before lunch period in the lunch room. There are still public high schools in Texas small towns where a devotional is given by a pastor before the Friday night football game. We are after all the buckle of the Bible Belt. 🙂

        I went to a parochial school, and we didn’t have devotions in the morning or even grace before lunch. We did get dragged to church occasionally on special days, and one of our classes was religion. Mostly we studied the catechism. I guess I am none the worst for all of it.
