Saturday Chores, just a reminder.

by James Denison / June 18, 2005 3:40 AM PDT

Mow the yard. Trim the hedges. Put down lime. Put down fertilizer. Edge the drive and walk. Sweep drive and walk. Change car oil and filter. Wash car. Wax car. Air up car tires. Vacuum car. Grocery shopping. Walmart or Target for dry goods, pet foods, paper towels, etc. Movie rental for crappy TV tonight. Burn those files that piled up to CDR. Do Laundry. Clean microwave. Clean refrigerator and toss out moldy stuff. Vacuum house, get ceiling cobwebs. Mop bathrooms. Scrub out toilet and sink and bathtub. Go to bank, make deposits, get ATM cash for weekend. Do Sunday school lessons. Buy Father's Day gift and card, late as usual. Wash dog. After that's done consider doing some chores you've been putting off, like painting the side of something or other, fixing that bad deck area, planting some flowers, getting that garden going for summer veggies. Saturdays, they only come around once a week.

Mostly bits and pieces of everyone's. If it was mine it would include finally doing the indoor finish trim on the double french doors I installed last year to replace the slider. Do the other set of french doors to replace the downstairs previous slider, currently a door and enclosed half side. Ordering and putting a new hood on my other lawn mower, the metal split on the old one. Replacing a few soffits and squirrel proofing my attic. A crapload of improvements yet to be done in the lower level area. The list seems endless, so I just tossed it.

Sitting here drinking a cold one, watching Shrek II, surfing. I did clean out one of my junk drawers, threw away a few old PC parts. I'm tired now, time for another one. I did install my little Canon BJC-80 portable printer onto the IBM server. Broke a sweat on that one, had to get up and plug in the cable. Wow, time for another one.

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?
