The New Widgets from Yahoo!

Be careful to establish a Restore Point before you install the Yahoo Widget program!

It is very cute, has lots of features but: it will take over!

It establishes itself as your home page and replaces the Google Search Bar!

Fortunately I have very good anti-virus etc because I believe it also attempted to plant spy!

I rapdly took it off although I am sure with a little patience these things can be overcome, I do not have the patience!

The Sidebar, on the other hand, while a bit fiddly, is OK and I have left that on. I have e-mailed them suggesting they also incorporate a "Mortality Clock"!

That is, input your date and place of birth and it will calculate your probable number of hours and count them down hour by hour.

These days we need a reminder, they speed by so rapidly and we need a jolt occasionally to do those important things.

Don't be so bloody morbid, and just smile when you wake up in the morning ready to greet another day of pleasant surprises.

I think you need to lighten up!

I am 76 and always wake up with a smile, but I have a few regrets.

I didn't always do the things I intended although I have visited over 60 countries and done many things there are a few...

Stop trying to beat the clock;-p

It is the only thing I can beat these days.

Incidentally you can find mortality tables on the net anyway.

According to that I should live another 8 years.

We all die, no exceptions and my affairs are in order.

I have no fear of it!

Lighten up as I told golfpro; it just amuses me not frightens me!

Either I wake up or I don't!
