help needed...

Computer help that is. I'm in crisis. I hate when I arrive at something that needs to be done, but I'm too dumb to do it.
Shockingly it doesn't happen as often as you think.

I need a computer techie/nerd/geek/god to help me fix my PC. Or at least perform last rites.

I'm having hard drive issues. And while I do have a partial backup on one of those external back up thingies (technical term) it's about a month old and there is some data newer than that, that I really REALLY need.

So if you can help, or know anyone who can... please email me or leave a comment here with your email... whichever.

Thanks.

Until then, I'll be in the corner weeping softly.

Free diamonds! Kinda...

At the card show this past weekend, as soon as I walked in the door, two of the sellers called out my name and beckoned me over.

It's nice to be wanted.

Both had cards saved for me that they knew I would want. I'll show off the lone baseball card I managed to pick up over the weekend now.


I love me some Chippah!

This is one of those Hope Diamond things from Topps. Or is this the Blue Hope Diamond? Did they have other colours? Did the liquorfractors count?

Whatever. This one just happens to be numbered JerseyNumber/60

Yeah baby! 10/60. Ebay 1/1! Woot!

*cough*

Even better than acquiring this beauty was the price. Yeah. Free. All I had to do was answer a trivia question ... "What was Chipper's jersey number?"

BOOM!

I love this hobby.

as we say good-bye, we say hello...

The 2013-14 Barclay's Premier League season has come and gone. Congratulations to the noisy neighbours on their second Premier League title.

While we all anxiously await the 2014 FIFA World Cup, there's a lot of goings on in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pachettino has resigned as coach of Southampton, and has taken the same position with Tottenham Hotspurs. A rather curious move... I guess money talks.

Several players have already moved in the summer transfer window, but I suspect the majority of movement will came after July 13th, the end of the World Cup.

As every other year before this one, 2014 marks the good-bye to the bottom three teams who have been relegated down to the Championship.

So long to one of my favourites to watch, Norwich City.
 Norwich had been in the Premier League for the last three seasons.


Old friend Fulham goes down after 13 consecutive seasons in the top tier.

And newcomers Cardiff City go right back to where they came from after only a season. Their first ever appearance.

But with the sadness of seeing them leave, we welcome three new clubs to the party. Promoted from the Championship to the Premier League, say hello to ..

Leicester City. The Foxes last made a top flight appearance in 2003-04.

Burnley. Finishing second in the Championship has earned Burnley a place at the table, their first since 2009.

and finally Queens Park Rangers. QPR beat Derby County in a playoff by scoring a goal in the 90th minute to win 1-0 and secure their place after only one season away.

I look forward to the new 2014-15 season and to the busy off season ahead.

and as always, Go United!
