The New Addition

Dumb Dell passed away two and a half weeks ago when she suddenly decided that after her short term of employment (3 years 10 months), she no longer wanted to work for me and made it so her screen went black five minutes after being turned on. Purl and I took her to the "hospital" where I was then told that Dumb Dell was not even worth repairing.



So there is a new addition to the Nosal family - one that was quickly welcomed and adopted. Purl and I are happy to welcome Mr. Mac* into our lives. We are still getting used to him. We haven't quite become used to the fact that I have to drag things (my ipod, my camera, etc.) into the trash can in order to properly eject them from my computer. But we are happy that Mr. Mac has rescued us from the unethical world of Dell.

*The name Mr. Mac is not permanent (as of yet)... other suggestions welcome.

Passover

Tonight is the fourth night of passover. Tonight I had a wonderful refresher of my trip to Israel. Tonight my church held a Seder. A Seder can best be described as a Jewish ritual to remember the enslavement and exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. When I went to church a few weeks ago I noticed in the bulletin that the church was going to be having a Seder but all tickets had been sold and the waiting list was also full. I hadn't realized that there was going to be a Seder, otherwise I would have been the first in line to get my tickets. So I figured I would ask my mom to ask around to her church friends and see if they knew of anyone who had an extra ticket or two. No more than two days later I had three tickets. I was so excited that I was going to be able to attend.

Sister, Grandma, and I attended. It was the neatest way to spend Holy Thursday. If you ever get the chance to attend a Seder don't hesitate to go!
