Forget the bronzed baby shoes

check out this new way for "preserving" memories:


SEOUL - Forget desktop photographs of your children. Doting South Korean parents can preserve their child?s umbilical cord in acrylic resin to make a personal seal or even have it gold plated.
Shim Jae-cheol of U&I Impression said the firm had gold-plated about 80 to 100 umbilical cords a month since starting business in August, with prices ranging from 80,000 won to 100,000 won ($76 to $96). It also offers mail order.

and just a bit on the icky side!

Hi, Marcia.

Saving the cord blood might be a lot more useful "momento" for the kid a few years down the line...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
