Could you find your favorite site?

As I said a couple of days ago, I am using Marty's computer. I haven't used it for over a year and a half. And I didn't put in any bookmarks then. So now I am searching for my favorites. Plus my calendar is on my computer. Yes, I have a Palm, but it just dropped my Tuesday appointments. I know, I really erased them. I need my backup on my computer.

I read lots of comics on line. Luckily I could remember the names of some of them and one site I used. That I could google and then bookmarked. is easy to remember and to find, as is Facebook and my blog site. Thank goodness I have my favorite blogs on my blog.

But I read lots of blogs I don't know the names of. I know, dumb. But one is something something Dr. Pepper and something. Then I have one that has a list of 50 blogs, no idea of the name. Another is a comic strip artist's name. I hope to track it down by the comic strip's name. My cooking sites, no idea where to begin. Those I will just wait until my computer is back.

I go to several news site, networks and radio. A lot of them I can find through google. It will just take time. And then there are the dumb sites: jokes, funny videos, games. Those I will live without also.

Today has been fun. Marty is off blowing glass and I am alone with the computer. No rush to read my mail, no guilt that he needs to do work. I have played, done some work, and truly enjoyed using his computer as mine.

But could you find your favorite sites on another computer? How much do you depend on what is on your computer?

I depend way too much on my computer. I have a back-up disk, but I've never connected it to anything else. Like your situation, Frank and I do not switch computers often, but there have been times. When does your computer come home?

I hope to have it back in a week and a half. I hope it is fixable.
