Muffler underpants with odor protection

Ok, I'll admit it; I've been experiencing a creative slump.  The only good thing about a slump is when you have that euphoric moment when a good idea suddenly ellipsis your path.  For me it was a quick walk through Crossings Park... I started to think about how I could break free from my slump, maybe try something new that might bring some value to my routine.  I thought about a recent mailing from the South Colonie Continuing Education which included offerings of Yoga.  I've never tried Yoga, but have started to read Yoga Self Taught.  I believe Yoga may have some promise in regards to providing both a new experience for me and some long term value.  Specifically, I believe Yoga may provide an additional tool to address stress and anxiety.  Well then, signing up would seem to be a no brainer, so what's stopping me...

Windows 10 Install and first look

I received the ominous tidings of joy from Microsoft, titled, "You’ve reserved Windows 10 – what’s next?"  This message was sent out to apparently reassure those waiting for their promised free upgrade - in my case from Windows 7 to Windows 10.  Being a techno-sadist, I read the email and felt my pulse quicken when I reached the bottom of the message which stated "Absolutely can't wait? You have a couple of options to get your upgrade sooner".  The second option was to "Use the Media Creation Tool to install immediately on one or more devices (recommended for tech-savvy users only)."  Upon further reading, I learned that you could burn the ISO and then use that to perform your install.  This got me excited as I'd much rather do a "clean" install.  Yes, I realize that by doing the standard "upgrade" install Microsoft has advertised the ability to set your computer back but my trust level is low and I'd much rather giver it a whirl using a spare hard drive so in the event of a debacle, I could simply swap back my working Windows 7.
