Saturday Photo Hunt --- Important





IMPORTANT


I think that most photo hunters will say that their family is the most important thing in their lives, however I don't usually post photos of my family, except occasionally my granddaughter.

However I expect there will be a lot of photos of what I consider the two most important things in my life, after my family. The first one enables me to interact with you and of course is my computer. Yes my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop, desperately in need of a memory upgrade from 1 GB total RAM to 2GB, hopefully soon. Yes, that is my daughter and granddaughter on the desktop.


Equally important in my life are my books. My many, many books. Thousands of books, for I never get rid of any of them. Oh, oh. I think I need more bookshelves, they are in piles on the floor again.


My most important books are my hardcovers of my favourite books, the House of Niccolo, an eight part series of historical novels by the Scottish author Dorothy Dunnett, some of which are autographed by the author.



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

Although my family and personal possessions are important to me, I choose to bring an important message to Photo Hunters today.

Happy weekend Jmb!

jmb, I just helped a friend order a new desktop computer and we ordered 2 gigs of RAM. I can understand your need - I have only 1 gig. Nice wallpaper on your laptop - your 2 favorite girls. And of course books are really important.

Great shots! I love my Dell... I'll never have another desktop, that's for sure!

Melli said...

WoW! Great way to combine all kinds of important stuff! I, too, would be LOST without my books!

Carver said...

What a clever idea to combine the photograph of your daughter and granddaughter with your computer. Great screensaver shot. Books are very important to me but I didn't even think of that one. Good take on the theme. Hope you have a great weekend.

We have a Dell Inspiron 1720, which is lovely and which we all enjoy. Just have to queue up sometimes. Have a great weekend JMB.

VEry, very important. :)

Books... Fidel and I are the same... book hounds to the nth degree, and can't see a life without them.

What few bookshelves we have are waaaay overflowing.

Fidel is now into the electronic types which are rapidly filling up our cyber space as well. Time to find dedicated electronic "bookshelves".

Someday I'd love to have a room that is the "library"

Prudence said...

I was thinking of posting a photo of my new laptop, but then, again, I thought of deviating a little from the norm hehe.

I do love books too! And yeah, they're also piling up on the floor of my bedroom. I need to buy a bigger bookshelf.

Fantastic theme and choice.

CRIZ LAI said...

Wow..your desktop is filled with icons. Didn't these slow down your computer processing? Anyway, nice sharing this week :)

Well...to help you pull through on the theme..it should be having a handy husband around for everything.. hehe :P

Gattina said...

I thought the same ! Our families are of course important and I also put my laptop in the first place ! A window to the world is very important in our age !

Chris said...

Great pictures, as always, JMB!

PastorMac's Ann said...

How funny - I thought about my computer too and also our bookshelves full of books and my family too. Got a couple of pictures of a couple of other important things.

Nice choices for The Hunt.

Siani said...

Neat interpretation of this week's theme. My laptop and my books are very important to me, too. Thanks for the visit. Have a lovely weekend!

A. said...

I relate to all your choices, and it seems we share a taste in reading matter:) I have read most of those authors, if not the actual titles, including the House of Niccolo series.

Hi jmb --

Computers and books came to my mind too but opted for something more basic in the end. (Trust that you'll come over to my blog to see what that is...)

jams o donnell said...

My computer and my books are important in my life too jmb. Add my CDs and I am in hog heaven! Happy weekend

Hootin' Anni said...

Excellent choice for "important"!!!

Mine's posted, drop by for a visit if you can find time.

I too love books....if you skip around my blog some, a couple of Fridays ago, I posted some of our books.....love 'em.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Computers and books are certainly important. Our humans are voraciously readers and have many, many books.

JesieBlogJourney said...

Great for the theme. We can be in the hunt because we have a computer. I have lots of books too and I wish I have more than 24 hours each day.

Liz said...

I love looking at people's bookshelves. I see you have Suite Francaise: I bought that for Daughter-in-law for Christmas. is it good?

It is very grey and wet here today. Hope your weather is better.

pelfy said...

Without my laptop? Ah... I dare not think! (=

Patricia said...

I very much appreciate your important things, too. I have piles of books that need reshelving this very moment.

Thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek on the hunt this weekend. I hope you are having a weekend filled with all that is important.

Rebecca said...

I agree. Computers and books are both very important... computers especially these days.

Expat Traveler said...

I gotta laugh at that desktop (clean clean into folders.)

Great set of pics! And the rain continues.. :)

julie said...

Yup, these tech gadgets are becoming very important in our lives.

The books! You said autographed? Wow!

Have a great weekend,JMB. Love your granddaughter's photo on the desktop.

jmb said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting my photo hunt today. Have a great weekend.

Bretwalda Edwin-Higham said...

Most important indeed.

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

In terms of possessions, I'm tempted to agreee.
Though I'd include my CDs.

Dragonstar said...

I admit I would be lost without my computer. And my books! I don't know Dorothy Dunnett at all - must look into this.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

I love photos of books, as you know.So nice to know there's someone else who doesn't get rid of them! How did you find "Imperium" which I notice in the pile?

eph2810 said...

How cool that you have books signed by the author.

My family is very important to me too:)

Thank you so much for sharing.
