Popping peanuts in the park

Shira's Shot
Madison Square Park, May 25, 2010
(Click on the photo to see the little peanut-popper up close.)
This is the first picture that I've uploaded onto my new computer and imported into Blogger! Yay!
Okay, the printer doesn't seem to be working at the moment, and the poor hubster hasn't even gotten around to plugging in the new external hard drive, but we're getting there, slowly but surely.
For the record, I hate Windows 7! In Windows XP, I used to be able to copy from one folder to another--now I have to drag and drop, whether I want to use that method or not. And the choice of how to display one's folders is much more limited--I don't need to see an individual folder icon for every single folder in the "media" libraries, darn it, just show me the "details" list! My current favorite complaint: When I copied this photo, I discovered, much to my annoyance, that there's no "paste" option listed on the right-click menu! Who designed this thing, anyway? :( Thank goodness for the old keyboard pasting method, Ctrl-V.
7:02 PM update: The printer is now running fine, and I've already backed up Quicken on the new external hard drive. My husband, my hero!
Now, if someone could just explain to me how two USB ports right next to each other can be labelled K and M . . .
8:47 update: Interesting, not to mention annoying--Word 2002, when riding on Windows 7, does not create automatic hyperlinks (which must be specifically inserted, instead), does not create automatic emoticons, and does not automatically fill in a day or date (e.g., "Mon" doesn't automatically become "Monday").
