Maybe my scarves have been too close to the moth balls. Maybe I have developed hay fever for the first time in 69 years. Maybe I have pink eye. Maybe I am allergic to the collar of my polyester coat. Whatever, my eyes have been hurting lately.
My laptops are my only computers – I do not have a desktop. Lately, I have caught myself inching closer and closer to the small screen.
So today – to start the new year right, I have switched to using my 32 inch flat screen for my computer monitor. The flat screen has been hooked up to my laptop for a couple of years now for on-line movies, so it only took some minor adjustments to my floor plan to move my keyboard away from the laptop.
I also have a 20 inch flat screen, but that will take a major rearrangement.
Yes, my electric bill will go up – it has been under $20 per month for ages – but a higher electric bill is cheaper than a new set of Braille encyclopedias.
We shall see.
