Flash Drive

Hello! Gadget Girl here!!

I love my flash drive!

It is a 4gig Flash Voyager by corsair. I still haven't found all the great uses for it, but it does get used alot. One of the things we use it most for here is to transfer files between operating systems. We do have all the computers networked, but sometimes my Mac is hard to find. So it is quicker to just load the files to the flash drive and take them to the PC and download them. We use this mostly for movies and music and sometimes for pictures.

There are a lot less portable apps for the Mac, but I do have Portable Firefox and Portable Abiword on it. Portable Firefox has all my favourite settings and bookmarks on it, so if I am away from my computer, I can still see things as I like them! Portable AbiWord is a very good open source word processor. It is quick and doesn't take up a huge footprint. I use it for quick word processing over Neo Office which is a much bigger and more involved program.

I also have some pictures on it to show off to friends and family with computers. Then if they would like copies of the pictures, they can just copy them from the flash drive!

I am looking forward to finding more uses for my wonderful flash drive!

I am a fan of your blog. I live in the same region as you. I am starting my first vegetable garden this year. I was wondering when you plant your first seeds? I have heard of June, is this the right time for our area? Also what do you recomend I plant? Are there any particular plants that grow really well?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!! That is so sweet!

We are going to start our seeds indoors in the beginning of April. They will be in my living room as that is the side of the house that gets the most sunlight. Depending on what kind of plant it is, we will start planting them out in the middle of May. You can plant things like peas and carrots outside as soon as the dirt isn't frozen anymore. Make sure your soil has a lot of compost in it. This year we have to add some more soil and compost to our garden. In a few weeks, hopefully we will be able to get out and clean up the vegetable garden. It gets a lot of shade at this time of year so it takes longer for the snow to melt there.

We have had good luck with peas, beans, zucchini, cukes, beets and tomatoes so far. Our carrots do ok, but not amazing yet LOL!!

Keep your eyes on my blog and I will try to go into more detail of what we are up to in our gardens.

Off to read your blog!!
Thanks again!!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I suppose I would never get the hang of. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next site, I will try to get the hang of it!
