This tale describes torment, doom and worse. If you are in a good mood then skip it as pretty it is not. MacBook Pro number 1 had a swollen battery issue and the trackpad did not function. MacBook Pro number 2 (Mac2) had some intermittent issues with the trackpad. I made an appointment at the local Mac store and headed out to the mall to get 'em inspected.

Decided to upgrade a toshiba laptop to win8 before the "deal" expired. The deal was get win8 pro for $40 before feb 1, 2013. But first a little history.

I tried to upgrade this machine before, from Vista Home to Win7. Well i could not doit, it was not endowed well enough. You see, it had a 64GB SSD and there was not enough room to do the Win7 upgrade.

Returning home from a trip to Vegas, had a memorable conversation with the taxi driver on my way to the airport. Interesting fellow, was about 71 having retired 5 years ago.  Lots of gray hair, wearing a short stove top black derby, he was a very friendly character. Five days a week he is behind the wheel from 1 am till 1 pm.

I asked "it must be interesting driving a cab in party city?"  His reply was to hold up spray can of Lysol disinfectant saying "I don't know what it is with the girls in this town, they wear dresses that don't cover their butts". He spays the seats after each of those fares.

He went on to relate some other "you would not believe" stories. The most memorable was a recent fare with 4 rude dudes from Toronto. He simply described them as "the most foul-mouthed boys he has ever meet". They asked him to take them to bar with lots of women, he replied " sure, no problem".

Our taxi driver may have been old but definitely had his wits about him. He astutely headed to the most popular lesbian club in Vegas, dropped them off and quickly drove away. He said there where 2 beautiful women at the curb that immediately got the guys attention.

Then he asked, "do you know what a transvestite is? You know, those guys that dress like women!" He continued to explain, grinning all the while "those 2 beautiful women had kickstands".

Lesson: careful how you treat your taxi driver!

Well if this isn't a dandy trick of life. Yesterday Meaux got a Mac. Today Meaux taught me a few things about the Mac!

I mean. three hours of playing around on the thing and he knows stuff that I didn't know. So now I know some meaux stuff, like three-finger swipes to get to multiple desktops. While I have the latest version of the operating system, Mountain Lion, I did not take the tutorials. Beaux don't need no stinking tutorials. Beaux's been on a Mac since 1984! Well, Meaux took the tutorials and taught me some Mac stuff! Unbelieveable! Another one of life's insidious tricks! (But mine's bigger. The Mac, the Mac....)

I'm sitting in my office on a Monday morning and it is the first cold day of the year. Arteaux and my wife are sitting at the kitchen table drinking. Their morning coffee, of course. My wife has her iPad (I got her one for her XBox) and Arteaux has her Mac laptop. Let's put it this way, their technology is easily accessible. Arteaux, concerned about her daily fashion statement, asks my wife, "What is going to be the high today?" My wife doesn't know so she calls to me down the hall, "Honey, what is going to be the high today?" Are you kidding me? What am I, Beaux's weather service?
