  7. So, you and Abby are the party people of the family huh?
    Leo, I’ve said it before, every regular in Leoville has said it before, but I really don’t think it can be said too often. You and Leoville are so special. You give us this wonderful arena to come and have fun in. A place to use our talents and imaginations. A place to work on our compurter skills. A place to find other people who enjoy many of the same things. And then if that weren’t enough you come in and play with us! Leoville, collectively, truly has a heart and soul that makes us want to keep coming back again and again. If I’ve had a tough day I know Leoville will lift my spirits. If I’m in a silly mood I know the people of Leoville will join in the fun. And no matter how long I live I’ll never forget the comfort I found here during the dark days following Sept 11. I’m so glad I found you and Leoville. I can’t picture my life without either now. I’m so looking forward to a new year in Leoville and wish you and your family a happy, healthy, exciting 2002!

  8. When I was a kid my next door neighbor was the nicest person you could ever meet. He did things out of the kindness of his heart and everyone loved him. I don’t even talk to most neighbors now. I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt but time eventually turns a lot of smiling faces into people I’d just as soon not have to deal with. These are exceptions of course and I value the true friendly faces in the world, but it seems like good neighbors are harder to come by these days. I guess that’s a lot of the reason we’re hooked on your show. Sure we need the technical expertise that you provide, but I think you remind us of a simpler time and a set of values we all wish we could apply to everyone in our lives. Thanks for the heads up on XP. I just purchased a new box and I’d just as soon trade it in on one of the flat panel imacs rumored to debut next month. I don’t connect with it anyway, I’ll have to wait for SE for that. Keep up the good work Leo. Happy New Year!

  9. HAPPY NEW YEAR! (sorry for shouting, but I went to bed early and I don’t have a hang over.) It snowed almost everyday while I was in Western Pennsylvania visiting my family, it was so pretty, like a picture postcard every day, it snowed all day long, every day, but it was the kind of snow you see in snow globes, swirling, fluffy snow flurries, mixed in with some heavier snow which covered everything in a blanket of snow….. only the blanket wasn’t very warm! It got down to 9 degrees! But I had a wonderful vacation and I hope everyone at the Laporte household had a pleasant Holiday, and all the folks in Leoville, too.
    BTW: My Mom loved getting your book for Christmas, Leo, she has so many questions about everything, being a newbie, but I think your book will give her a chance to find out more about the mysterious thing we call a computer, she is very curious about it and when she isn’t afraid of breaking it, she does very well…. this Christmas she even braved shopping online for a few things, she was very proud of that, and I am glad she asked for a computer for her 75th birthday several years ago, she was the LAST person I thought would enjoy having a computer, but she loves it. While your book does go into some greater technical detail it also has a style and tone about how to approach the computer that is very reassuring for people just starting out. I heard her say several times “I didn’t know that” while reading through the Almanac, and she liked the essays, too, so I hope you will continue writing, you have another fan!
