Snapped that up quickly. When it died, hubby went looking and I gave him the order NO SILVER OR BLACK CARS. Now we have a red one. :)

No, I have never known of such a thing.

In the 80's we had various color cars, just like we do today.

I remember a friend of mine buying a brand new Chevy SS and it was candy apple red.

My uncle bought a new vet in the 80's and it was blue.

Well you would just choose silver.

There are tons of shades of colors for cars and manufacturers have their own paint
colors and clear coats. For example Dodge is always famously talking about their
clear coats.

I have two vehicles, an SUV (white color) and a Pickup Truck (red color). The SUV
is a Chevrolet and the Pickup Truck is a Dodge. However, if you were to park another
white and red vehicles beside them....Ford for example, you'd see the red and white
colors are not the same.

Lots of different shades in colors and various from manufacturers.

Well I don't know tasman1. I am not superstitious.

I kind of like Friday the 13th some times because they put those old lame scary movies on
some tv channels, netflix and such. Good for a bowl of popcorn and a laugh....altho some
times I do cover my eyes.

What good are the programs on your computer if your computer does not work?

Most all software programs that you purchase, have a website log in so that you can
log in and reinstall the software and/or receive updates.

I mean my gosh, you said your computer is about dead. Just using common sense
that means you are going to either need to buy a new computer, a user computer,
have the one you presently own repaired.

Uninstalling and Installing a different operating system may not help at all. Often
if your computer is old and you have used it for a long time, there are various things
that can be bad with it that have nothing to do with the operating system installed on
it.

If you don't have back up's for whatever programs you are referring to, then I would
suggest backing them up now if you can. Maybe a disc or a cloud service. Today
however almost all programs are going to allow you to do more than one install.
I even have the old coffee cup software from many years ago and I go over to
coffeecup any time and download the software again when I want and to any
computer I have.

Bottomline is, if you don't do back ups of your photo's or stuff you save on your
computer, cloud usage, you will just have to chalk it up as a loss. Because when
your computer is dead, it is dead ....... especially if you are not willing to pay
someone to try and recover what's on there.

I should also add that it often depends on the number of years a person works at that particular place of employment.

For example at the hospital I worked at, it was one week paid vacation the first year of employment,
in addition to what I stated above in regards to sick day accumulated hours and over time accumulated
hours. After a few years, the paid vacation went to two weeks. I think after I had worked there 5 years,
I received three weeks paid vacation in addition to the OT and SD.

There was a ton of benefits working at that hospital. ALL insurance paid. I never paid a dime for
hospital, dental, eye, medications/subscriptions.... all 100% covered. Also they reimbursed college
semester costs as long as you passed with at least an overall C.

Also had my own blood bank. I am RH O- and we had the option to reserve our own blood for our
self or family emergencies. Basically, whomever we deemed to give our blood reserve to, we could.
Needless to say, if you know about blood types, my reserve was usually empty because I gave it
away. :lol:

It was a good place to work but physically and emotionally draining.

It varies depending on the job and employer benefits.

I worked in a hospital for many years and there was an automatic one week paid
vacation BUT we also accumulated hours of paid vacation for hours we worked
over time. In nursing, there is over time every day if you want it. Also, we got
sick day hours that would accumulate. I'd say that I probably in total, received
about 8 weeks of paid time off per year. Give or take a few days.

You might try looking in local papers, eBay, flea markets, garage sales, for a computer.

I visit an antique indoor mall some times near where I live. It's a very large building with
booths that sellers rent the space. All kinds of stuff, not just antiques. They have computers,
laptops, all kinds of stuff.

There's a guy that use to post on these forums a lot. He goes to yard sales often and has
yard sales at times. He gets all of his computers and laptops for dirt cheap from yard sales.

A lot of people sell their computers for very cheap when they get a new one.
