I noticed that slot when I got my computer, but never looked closer at it until few days ago. What got me to look at what the slot is when I was on Walgreen's or CVS website about photo options. When I saw that you could upload photos from the memory card onto the website was when I looked at the slot. My e-reader has a slot for a SD card(which I don't have and don't need it yet) for additional storage and it may fit in the slot.

I just noticed the "EGAD" post and it made me think of my Aunt Florence, who loved to say stuff like "What the Sam Hill is going on here?" That was a fairly common saying too - I even heard Moe Howard say it in one of the Stooges shorts.

One book series I have read, the author had one of the main characters say Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ instead of foul language.

Why?? I wish I knew. The only thing I can find is that a "drey" squirrel nest is outside, like in tree branches, as opposed to inside, like inside a hollow tree (or, I suppose, my attic affraid ).

Anyway, nice find, Bobcat. I LOVE collective nouns. Sometimes they are so evocative, like "a murder of crows" or "a scold of jays" or (I love this) "a congress of Baboons." But sometimes they make no sense without more info. Like "a smack of jellyfish." I wonder what prompted that description?

i learned just where the liver and the gall bladder is...and wonder if the pains i've been getting are gall bladder trouble. my mom had to have hers removed when i was a little bitty kids....she was younger than me when it was done. (and i think eating a lot of greasy and salty stuff can make act up....could be that what i've eaten over the past 8 yrs or so has finally gotten to it...eating chips for dinner probably doesn't make it too healthy confused pale )

i've found some interesting info about gallbladder etc. thought i'd put some links in here in case anyone is interested....the first is a little test you can take to see if your problem could be with your gall bladder. (its amazing where some of the pains could be)

http://www.gallbladderattack.com/questionnaire.shtml

and here are things you should/shouldn't eat and even a tea you can make from flax seeds to help!

I learned that martin Van Buren, was the first president who was born a citizen of the United States (In New Jersey) and that English was his second language. His people were Dutch and that's what they spoke at home

though this last batman movie is driving me crazy trying to figure it out, there is a quote that was really near the beginning that stuck in my head and i'd like to make a button for.... "What doesn't kill me makes me stranger'.i can really relate to that esp today.
