Vetiver Spain: March is the best time of the year to plant Vetiver. After planting Vetiver for almost 10 years now we know that the best results are when Spring comes around. This way Vetiver has a full spring and summer to absorb the heat of the summer. This plant is indigenous to India and loves the heat.
Vetiver Spain has prepared an article on “When is the best time to plant Vetiver?”

Windows News by DoctorLaptop
-The prices for a new copy of Windows 10 on the Microsoft website have gone up despite many writers suggesting there would be discounts as the end of Windows 7 approaches. New prices: Win 10 Home €145, Win 10 Pro €259. Have you made your System recovery disk image yet? If your hard drive quits you don’t want to have to buy a new copy of Win 10! Go to Settings/Recovery for instructions.
-Windows has now “recommended” no computers more than 3 yrs old be upgraded to Windows 10, they say you should buy a new computer before Win 7 goes obsolete in 9 months. Here are some new quotes from Microsoft’s Support page. Oh, and they want you to buy your new laptop from them or one of their sponsored distributors (BestBuy/Walmart/CostCo/Amazon).
“You can purchase and download Windows 10 on your device today. Although, if your computer is more than three years old, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new device.”
“While you could continue to use your PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware. Going forward, the best way for you to stay secure is on Windows 10. And the best way to experience Windows 10 is on a new PC. While it is possible to install Windows 10 on your older device, it is not recommended.”
-Many new computer processors will only be able to run Windows 10. Not Windows 7/8.1 or Linux. If you want to use these alternative systems you will have to buy a model that is Linux compatible, and you will pay more for this privilege (a monopolistic move by MS to crush the competition). If you want Win 10 but think you may ever want to use Linux (as Win 10 clamps down on 3rd party software and finds ever new ways to invade your privacy), be sure to buy a “Windows 10 + Linux compatible” laptop. -DoctorLaptop,  for all your computer repairs find my contact info in the Sponsor’s Section below.
