  • One party you don't want to attend

    Do you remember the lines learned in childhood:  “Nobody loves me.  Everybody hates me, I’m going out and eat some worms.”

  • Turkey Quiz part two

    How much do you know about food safety and cooking turkey? This quiz came from a colleague in Ohio. Pick the best answer to each question.

    So where is your stuff? First step is to give Windows a little time to catalog all your files by location. Windows uses a feature called the Indexer.

    The days leading up to Christmas were exciting times as a kid.
