My New Toshiba Portege Laptop!

Last night I got something really awesome in the mail, my new Toshiba Portege Laptop.  This thing is awesome!  I am using it now to type this post!  My Toshiba Portege is super light, fast, thin, and has a good responsive keyboard, which is perfect for an auto journalist and blogger.

One drawback is it my Toshiba Portege does not have a dedicated graphics card.  However it's got lots of other great features like an build in SD slot which I have already used!   As well there is an HDMI port, and DVD/CD burner.

If you are considering buying a Toshiba Portege and have any questions about it, please leave a comment below.


Remembering 9/11 Ten Years Later

Today is the ten year anniversary of 9/11.  I can't believe it's been this long.  A decade is amazing.  I think the country changed profoundly on 9/11 and it's something for those of us that were alive will never forget.

I recall I was in school on 9/11 in the library. One of the teachers heard the news and turned on the TV, which showed the images of the Twin Towers burning.  I remember how shocking it was.  My young mind never really thought that those burning towers were an important historical event.  It also did not occur to me that the images I saw meant that a significant amount of people were dead.  I remember leaving the library and asking other students if they had heard the news.  To my surprise most that hadn't, because a majority of the classrooms did not have TV's.  I was probably one of the few students at my school who was actually watching what had happened.  Some had heard but were not aware of the enormity of the event and were not concerned.  A picture is worth a thousands words.

Thank You to all those Firefighters, Police Officers, and other service members wherever you are.  You jobs are difficult and sometimes thankless.  We all appreciate what you do everyday.
