Doing Some Laptop Upgrades

I did some upgrading to my laptop today. I added an 8 gig memory stick and a 250 gig solid state drive (MNVE 2.0). This straightforward operation took a lot of unscrewing and prying and some seating of the memory and drive. Then I had to put everything back together again. After everything was reassembled it worked and I was happy. This should extend my laptop’s life and speed things up. It was a fun thing to do.

Thanks to the Mrs. for her help in providing me the right tool for the job and taking this picture.

Pride Month Has Begun #Pride #LGBTQ

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.

Pride month is a global celebration recognizing the LGBTQ community around the world. The work of acceptance and full inclusion continues. As an ally I’m proud to stand with my friends in the community who seek justice and to live their lives without fear.

In The Old Hood Today

So, I was in the old hood today for a funeral of a friend who had known me since when I was a baby. It always feels strange being up there because I don’t have immediate family there anymore. Also, the church I grew up in is under new management. It’s like when you leave a place often you don’t return there. I was formed as a human being there in public schools and through the faith community of my childhood. I still know people there but as in life, we all go our separate ways. As time marches on I don’t miss it although that place is forever a part of me. Thank you to the 886 for your part in making me who I am.
