What else is new?

Today I am listening to a worker cutting a larger hole in my cabinet to put a new countertop range in. It will replace the original stovetop range. You remember! The ones with the plug-in thingys! I am wondering if I will be able to learn how to cook with all four burners working? My old one had two working burners most of the time. Okay, onward to bigger and better things!

About a month ago, we were informed that GoDaddy was making changes and we would be on a WebMail system or pay big bucks. We contacted HostGator and decided to transfer our domain for emails. Sounds nice and easy, right? In the ensuing battle, it was a call to GoDaddy, and a long wait, then a call to HostGator, not a long wait, and both were saying, “No, not our fault we did everything right!” 

Eventually, we got everything on each of the sites that needed to be posted, and guess what?

Still no email from my WordPress blogs! For the last month, I have received one or two from you; the rest went into cyberspace, I think. 

The last time I spoke to HostGator, they sent me sites to get the domain set up to get your emails. None of them made any sense to my non-techie brain. I stated clearly when I was contracting for this new site that “I AM NOT A TECHIE! My next call will be to tell them, “You have my money; now it is time for YOU to either fix it or give me my money back. 

So far in this battle, we now own two Microsoft 365 programs. I expect to have a fun time getting money back on either one. I have a site that pops up and wants me to sign in to Outlook Assistant, for which I do not have a password.

And, did I say I still am not getting your emails?

That cabin in the woods is sounding a whole lot better every day!

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.

  1. A cabin in the woods sounds awesome. I wish you all the best for getting the techie stuff sorted out. What was the Gladiator saying? Strength and honour!! 💖

  2. We are getting a new cook top also. It arrives tomorrow. The plumber installed a gas line to it and turned off our hot water which meant a cold shower for me today!

  3. Oh, sorry, mine was electric, so not much inconvenience, except he had to cut the hole bigger and made a mess in the kitchen. As you know, as you get older, the floor gets further down than it used to. I prefer “Hotshowers” myself! LOL
