I’ll tell you a real horror story: my main computer had to go to the shop because the graphics card was shot. My backup is an old MacBook Air with only 2 gb of memory and I foolishly decided to upgrade to Sierra. Trust me on this: you cannot run Sierra on 2gbs of memory. I spent ALL DAY Halloween trying to make a Mavericks install USB all the while dealing with the endless spinning beachball. When I finally got it figured out, I got an email that my old computer was ready! But too late to pick  it up!

(PS: My computer is back already and the spellcheck works now, you’ll all be thrilled to know.)

Anyway, now all is well, but I missed out on 24 hours of Halloween, my favorite day of the year.  Since we still have All Souls Day (Nov. 1) and Dia de los Muertos to get through, here’s a little of what you missed.
