Unfortunately when I tried to watch a little video on my travel computer, a strange blue screen showed up with a white line and text. I found it rather strange that I should recover something I had never installed !
but thought I could easily solve the problem and start my computer, but no way. The keyboard was dead. Mr. G. tried a whole day to get into the computer with no result, he didn't sleep the whole night because he was so upset. As he was an analyst programmer and had always worked with computers since 1971, he couldn't understand. Then he asked a friend whose job is solving problems, nothing to do, he tried everything the computer remained with the blue screen. Apparently a lot of people have the same problem and if you google you will find claims over claims.
BitLocker is a full disk encryption feature included with Microsoft Windows versions starting with Windows Vista. It is designed to protect data by providing encryption for entire volumes that's the explanation you get. In short it protects so well that you can't use your computer anymore.
After two days the specialist and two others gave up and I had no other choice then buying a new one ! We both were furious, it probably happened during an update of Window 10. There is no other explanation because nobody had installed this thing.
Fortunately I found nearly the same a Lenovo at a very good price. Mr. G. was happy he spent the afternoon installing my things.
Now I have to put some photos in it.
For once a miracle happened ! After one year I always had lost the Scrabble game, this week I won !! I thought my friend had made a mistake in adding the points but no, I was really the winner !!
I have finished my first painting with the new method we learned called "pouring" that means pour different colors over a canvas and see what comes out ! I love to do it, because it's very creative and you never know what's coming out.
I had two gardeners who cut the hedges, shrubs and pulled out weed and prepared the garden for the winter. I am relieved it was not too expensive and that's one worry less.
After painting class we went for lunch to the Carrefour and Chantal also went to the hairdresser. Nicole and I just wanted to see how it worked with the result that Nicole stayed too and had her hair cut, I took the pictures. We had a lot of fun there with the other clients and laughed a lot.
And coming out from the hairdresser we discovered a new "coffee & tea" corner and had a coffee there with this enormous piece called "merveilleux" (marvellous) for 5 € !
The rest of the day or rather evening I watched TV with my feet warmer !
