I finally bought Diablo III. I have been waiting for this game for years and years and years. I first installed this on a decently powerful computer, but its graphics card was rejected by the game. I reinstalled it on another to the same message. I installed on Stella’s Vaio and it works well. I really need a better graphics card, but for right now this will work.

I could not wait to play online with my best friend Brian. We used to play both Diablo and Diablo II. Since, he is so far from where I live this is pretty much the only contact I will get with him. We got to play yesterday for an hour or so and that was awesome!!!! I loved the graphics and the gameplay. The story seems to tie in all three games just nicely.

It is kinda neat.  When Raven is in school we get about three hours to ourselves.  It is really nice just Stella and Me to do something.  Today we decided to go to McMenamins Edgefield.  It is a great Historic Hotel, but it used to be a Poor Farm.  There is an old Power House which is now a Movie Theatre and Pub.  There is an old Icehouse converted into a restaurant.  There are herb gardens and intimate little restaurants galore.  And The Black Rabbit is a classy restaurant/bar inside the Edgefield Hotel itself.  It has a delicious breakfast and tastey looking Lunch and Dinners.  I posted the Breakfast menu here.  I had the Salmon Plate and Stella had the Florentine Egg Benedict.  Here is our two hour exploration of McMenamins Edgefield in pictures from today.

Here are a few shots of this Wonderful Day.  We started out with a cute little Dinner last night for Mother’s Day.  Yeah I know Stella cooked it.  Then this morning the Coffee, Chocolate Brownie, Flowers, and the “Card”.  This afternoon was the trip to Wildwood Recreation Area.  This is a beautiful area that has nice walks beside a small stream and has a neat underwater viewing area of the fish, etc.  It has great easy trails and lots of places to picnic.  They have several huge areas for large families to gather and cook.

Stella, me, and the boys had a great day; however, I have been told I have to go into work tonight(my day off).  It is a shame because I actually feel good today.

Update:  One of my bosses called and called me at 10:20pm tonight and said not to come tonight(unless I was already on the road) due to the fact that they only had one GM container tonight.  It would be better for me to come tomorrow.  This is better for me because I can have my days working together.

Just remember to focus upon what is really important.  Focus on the good things and the long term goal.  Days are bad, but good are right around the corner.  I have said to many of my friends and colleagues that everything is temporary.   No matter how bad or good things might be, it will end very soon and we need to cherish every moment we do have.  The good things in life we have to hang onto for dear life because the world can be not so friendly sometimes.  May we all realize how blessed we all are and cherish everything we have.
