So my ergonomic keyboard bit the dust a couple of months ago and since I switched back to a regular keyboard, I've noticed my carpal tunnel is acting up even more. In fact, it's getting very bad and I suspect it might have come to the point where I'm going to need surgery soon.
But one thing I did yesterday was purchase a new ergonomic keyboard. That's it to the left, there. Wow, has it got the bells and whistles. It makes me feel like I now need to be a licensed PC operator before I sit down at my computer.
But enough about me, let's get to your daily link. A big thanks and a tip o'the Mark's Musings cap to list member Lavonne T., for today's tip.

Once there was a frugal man who owned quite a number of umbrellas, but they all seemed to have one thing or another wrong with them. So one day he gathered them all up - eight in all - and reluctantly took them in to a shop for repair.
The next morning as he was getting off his subway car, he absentmindedly picked up the umbrella laying on the seat next to him, as he was used to taking his umbrella everywhere he traveled.
The woman who owned the umbrella, however, startled him to no end when she shouted, "Hey! Stop, thief! That's *my* umbrella!!" The man, red-faced with embarrassment, quickly returned the umbrella and mumbled his apologies.
That same day the repair shop called, and reported that his umbrellas had all been repaired. The man picked them up that afternoon, but when he boarded the subway car that evening, to his horror he found himself staring into the face of the woman from his morning mishap.
She glared at him for a moment, then said loudly and sarcastically, "Had a good day, didn't you?"

WORD for YOUR WEEK: The Latin word bonacia means "good sea" or "calm sea." In Spain, that turned into the word bonanza, which they also used to mean fair weather, prosperity, or success. Now it generally refers to an unexpectedly great supply of something good. We have focused in on the prosperity aspect. As in, "For frugal shoppers, Mark's Market offers a bonanza of cheap goods."
