Behr Returns (Somewhat)

Hello all! I am almost back into action! Since today is MLK Jr Day, I had the day off from work. So I ventured out into the rain to the nearest Apple store where Kramer and Josh helped me to select a Macbook. I had been contemplating a Macbook Pro but after a series of probing questions, Kramer determined that the plain ole Macbook would suit my needs better.

Along with the actual Macbook, I got a printer too. Apple had a promo where if you bought a Mac you get a $100 rebate on a printer - and the printer they're pushing is $99 and change! So yay for me! I also purchased Microsoft Windows for Mac; this will be good in the event I actually use this for work-related items.

Now for some exciting stuff: I've gone wireless! Earlier in the year I switched to Verizon's FIOS for phone and Internet; wireless is automatically connected. I had to call Verizon to determine the password that the Macbook wanted but once I got that I was on my way. I love being able to sit in front of the TV and surf the net!! Ok, so most of you probably do that already but for me it's a big deal.

The above pic I took with the Photobooth app; kinda cool!

I also purchased the One to One training sessions for a year. Once I activate it, I can make as man appointments I want to get one on one training on using a Mac product. I am taking advantage of this since I'm a long time PC. Now I'm a Mac!! I've pretty much figured a lot out but still having some difficulty figuring stuff out so this will be a good investment.

Once I learn how to download and move pics I should be back in business. I'm hoping that I'll be able to eventually retrieve the thousands of pictures I have on my PC and get them on the Macbook. So my picture selection is going to be slim pickings for a while.

I want to thank everyone for their words of encouragement and advice and support. I feel so loved!

I'm too dumb to operate a Mac... I'm looking forward to more of your posts to see how you like it.
