If you do, may I ask WHY?? I still haven’t figured out the charm of Firefox. It’s uglier than Internet Explorer, the skins that are available make it even uglier, and I wonder why I even bother. The truth is, every few months I give in and download the latest version and install it. The last thing that prompted it was to see how it displayed my blog and forum since my daughter remarked that some browsers don’t handle apostrophes well. Downloading anything takes time and it took several minutes to complete the 5+MB file. I clicked on it, did the install, and ARGHHHHHH! it was the same mud-fence browser. Clicking on Tools, I went to Add-ons and asked, kindly, for a new theme. I was taken to a page that had a few gaudy ones sprinkled here and there. I chose “Wood”, I think. When it was installed, it looked like the cheap imitation woodgrain on an old Oldsmobile station wagon. Didn’t want that. Next, I tried “Hawaii”. Even worse. Everything was so dark, it was hard to see what the buttons were. When I tried to set my home page, my eyes were about put out by the psychedelic colors of the popup window. I went back to the default theme. It takes too long to download the overblown disasters on dialup to fool with it, especially since I’ll only keep it to check things once in a blue moon. So…I’m back on Opera. I never really left it. It was a temporary diversion for about 15 minutes of my time that I’ll never get back. Opera is so sleek, so svelte, and there are hundreds of ways to change the look and customize it. I have things right where I want them and it’s pretty to boot. The functionality is so far ahead of Firefox that it sings! It’s well named. Opera. Like beautiful music.
Now, back to Planet Earth. It’s already after 9 so I need to get crackin’.
I had planned to do some pared-downed exercises but never did. My food wasn’t what it should be, either.
12th Day of Christmas Raw Food
2 cups garlic lemonade (when I say cups, I mean mugs)
28 ozzies grapefruit juice
26 ozzies OJ
3 Bubbies pickles (I know)
4 persimmons made into pudding with the juice of a lime, an orange, and spices
1 Clementine (it was dry and unappetizing)
A small salad of romaine, tomato, 2 pickling cucumbers, kelp noodles, dressed with cashew dressing
1 small Bubbies pickle
I’ve done a load of laundry, had a longish conversation with my DD, a shorter one with my oldest child, took out the food scraps, and that’s about it. Not much to show for 24 hours.
Have a wonderful night and a better tomorrow!
