Friday Emma will be at the first dog show of the season without me. I could not get the day off work. There is a large group of other Brittany Spaniel owners who will be there with their dogs so Emma will have lots of friends to visit with. The breader we got our dogs from is comming to stay with us over the weekend and we are also having a bunch of other dog people over Friday night for pizza.

I copied the Outlook 2003 pst file off my moms old laptop. Her new laptop will have Outlook 2000 on it and I already confirmed that Outlook 2000 will not open and pst file from Outlook 2003. I found a really simple way to migrate the data. I created a new pst in Outlook 2003 selecting the option to make the pst outllok 97 - 2002 compatable. I then imported the 2003 pst data into the new pst. I copied the new pst to a computer with Outlook 2000 installed and was able to open it. Looks like I'm now all set to put mom's Outlook data on her new laptop.

Emma picked up mom's laptop from the courier office and I had a bit of a look at it last night. It is a Dell Inspiron 9300, and I am surprised that so far I do not find the 17 inch screen to be too big. I have not been able to make a wireless connection to my network and one of the first times I opened Internet Explorer, Windows XP crashed hard. I was able to make a weak wireless connection to a neighbour who has an open unsecured wireless network.

I got the dogs washed in preparation for the dog show this weekend. Tomorrow our friend Carol flies in with her dog Pepsi for the dog show, and Emma will pick them up at the airport then go to the show hall to setup a benching area for the dog show. We need room for 6 or more dogs and owners so I put two expandable pens and ground sheets in the car for Emma and Carol to use to steak out some territory in the show hall.

I started rebuilding mom's new Dell laptop last night. I split the 80 Gig hard drive in two so that she can have a partition just for data which she likes to have. The install using the recovery disk was easy and the Windows Updates did not take too long. I finished off the night by installing AVG antivirus.

While I was doing the geek thing, Emma and Carol gave the dogs some finishing grooming touches before the dog show Friday.

No big dog show news. Jazmine went best of opposite, and neither Piper or Pepsi got a placing.

Good dog show news. Jazmine was Best of Breed and Pepsi was Best of Winners which put Pepsi 3 points closer to a Canadian Championship.
