Last Tuesday was a sad day in the Music Therapy Connections office/studio.  It was the day I laid to rest a sturdy old workhorse, my HP DeskJet 940c printer.  I’ve had this printer since my first day of college (all the way back in 2001), and it has sat on 4 different desks in 4 different cities since then.  Not bad, considering I’ve been through 4 laptops in that time!

I owe my deceased DeskJet for all of my PECS cards, homemade visual aides, printed sheet music, and so much more.  It worked hard right up until judgment day, when despite trying several new ink cartridges, it spewed out blank paper.  Could it have been resuscitated? Probably.  But I knew it was time to let go.

The HP OfficeJet Pro Wireless 8000 and I got off to a rocky start.  But thanks to the intervention of a very sweet HP technical support person, our relationship was mended and now we’re working in harmony.  Its wireless capabilities, 2-sided printing (save the rainforest!), and high quality printing have all but made up for the loss of old DeskJet.

But this isn’t the only new officemate around here.  Last month, I added a couple that I still haven’t gotten around to posting.  I will do that soon.  In the meantime, have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend.  See you back here in a couple of days for my new “Sunday Singalong” video!
