Taking Mac Out For a Walk

All the colors on Vicki's computer screen were going kablooey and then the dreaded spinning beach ball of death would show up. 
For you PC folks, that's the symbol that tells you your Mac is frozen. The Apple techs on the phone aren't allowed to call it that. They pretend they've never heard of it and refer to it as a spinning gear and say it's perfectly normal. We took the thing to the Apple store and the nice young man told us the graphics card on her 7 year old machine was dying of old age. Nothing that a pile of money couldn't fix. Vicki is very happy with her new iMac but misses some of the weird colors. Reminded her of her college days.
