Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Mo... With A Little Help From My Friends

Connection?  Strange title, no way.

This morning I had a choice of computers to use, a luxury I hadn't had for a couple of weeks.  The screen on the PC, old clunky, had died so my husband and I had to share the too heavy to schlep laptop.

A good friend suggested that I ask her husband to advertise on janglo for an old computer screen.  Many people do save functioning appliances no longer in use, because it's such a shame to throw them out.  He did and lots of people contacted us from all over the Jerusalem area begging us to take their screens.  Then came the next problem.  How to take and schlep it from Jerusalem....?  The same cooperative friend contacted one of the generous people, brought the screen home.   It was delivered by their son on his way to school and then he returned later to help with all the wires to replace new for old, or less old for much older.

And now, for the price of a bit of typing our computer is working again.

There's nothing like friends!!

Thanks and Chodesh Tov!  Have a good month.

Please pray for a Refuah Shleimah, a full, complete and speedy recovery:
