Solid Potato Salad....the Ross Sisters (1944)

In this classic footage from the movie "Broadway Rhythm" (1944), the Ross sisters, Aggie, Maggie and Elmira, sing and move in ways that don't look humanly possible. Yoga anyone? Movie buffs will recognize the tune as one of the background instrumentals from "The Godfather."

It starts out looking like another kitschy 40's tune, but give it a minute. Things get wild!

(Extra trivia: While the Ross Sisters are billed in their act as Aggie, Maggie and Elmira Ross, their real-life names were actually Vicki, Dixie and Betsy Ross.)

My computer sounded like it was about to take off!!!!

I mean it sounded like it was going to explode! It was not getting quiet.....sounded stuck. I did a register check...had almost 2000 errors in the registry. I must admit my PC works like new now......SUPER FAST!!!!!!!

BUT the sound was still super loud.......which usually means a dirty fan somewhere or a hard drive going out. I am slightly panicked now as my livelihood depends on a PC that is up and running......(note to self...get a back up in place now!)

SO I took the PC apart (after I unplugged everything)...and swept out the dust from around the fan.......and anywhere else....put it back together and prayed a lot.

SOOOOOOOOO nice and SUPER quiet now.....just as it should be.

I accessed my work files...all working...

yes.......

God is good to me.......

SO far so good......though I will go ahead and get my music files and photos off here onto my portable second hard drive just in case as a backup.

AND I will go ahead and have work send me one of their PCs just to use for work in case this one goes before I get a replacement!

sigh......now to try to relax.......finish all the things I put on hold while fixing this......

Even watching Dancing with the Stars will have to wait till tomorrow on the PC.
