Another good day that still starts with dizziness and my stomach after getting up. For details see earlier posts starting with posting 2018-08-10 Recovery Day 522. As to the Transderm Scop (Scopolamine) patch, it seems not to work. I will keep using it until 21 August, the end of this cycle, to see if the patch is working.
Today, Dean suggested that we use another route for walking and picture taking. I select to visit the Dow Wetlands Wildlife Habitat. We have been here before, but using the Marine Harbor entrance. Today we entered from the opposite side. Time-wise we underestimated our goal, instead of 30 minutes in, turning around to the parking lot, gives us the 60 minutes. We ended up with about 90 to 100 minuted. On the positive side, I got some excellent Pictures of the Photographic principles: Lines, Shapes and Form Photographic principles: Lines, Shapes, and Form.
Back in the car, we decided to go shopping at WinCo and Trader Joe’s before retiring home. It was lunchtime, Dianne had left us some sandwiches from the Firehouse Sub. After lunch Dean brought his Granddaughter’s Dell laptop for me to see if we can upgrade it to run a bit faster.
The only option available option is to max out the internal RAM. I have made that suggestion to many PC and Mac user, which at first did not see that this would run their apps faster, SURPRISE it do the trick. Dean just wants it to run better for the first college year. Checking the laptop’s specifications it has only one memory slot and therefore we would remove the current 4GB memory card with an 8GB card.
Another option would be to replace the current HDD with SSD, however that change is more then he wants to spend now. Since de needs to return the laptop on Saturday, we will go shopping, after our walk in Concord, at Fry’s.
Having spent much time on the research, disassembling and googling for specifications, dinner time arrived way too early. Dianne did a great job to get dinner prepared with us still cleaning up and get things ready for tomorrow. As it has become our standard, after dinner we watch some TV before calling it a day.
