This is What I Think – and Feel

This is What I Think – and Feel

I hated the Gillette ad so much that I logged onto YouTube to vote “dislike”. I hated, hated, hated it. I hope that Gillette will go belly up. I’m tempted to look at all the P&G products and boycott the company and I don’t believe in boycotts.

I like men. I think they’ve been given a lousy hand by society in the last forty years. They’re good enough to die in wars, but let’s make fun of them in TV commercials and sitcoms.

No.

This YouTube ad is by a watch company and while I’m really, really tired of virtue signalling by corporations at least their viewpoint is one with which I agree.

Enough people.

The very nice people at the theme developer gave me some CSS code to fix the comment box. It’s not gray now when you’re typing. Yay!

Important Question

I may have a glitch.

If you are NOT able to comment on any of the posts, would you please email me and let me know? It’s happening to one person, but I can’t figure out why. It might be happening to other people, as well.

Thank you – and I appreciate your help!

Updates – Yuck

Updates – Yuck

So I was bopping along, doing my thing when Apple updated the operating system on the Mac to Mojave. Okay. I updated, thinking nothing of it.

The next week I noticed Scrivener was trying to correct misspelled words in my manuscript – such as THE or AND. After some investigation, I discovered that it was a Mojave glitch.

That same week I lost 2000 words in my manuscript because Scrivener did something funky while I was outlining. Luckily, I was able to load the backup and got my work back. We still haven’t figured that issue out, but the powers that be are leaning toward a Mojave glitch.

Yesterday I was trying to use my super scanner, Scansnap, to scan a foot high stack of stuff I should have been scanning for the last six months – but didn’t. Unfortunately, some of that stuff I needed to send to my CPA, so it HAD to be scanned.

Except that after much research I discovered that Fijitsu, who makes Scansnap, will not update the software to work with Mojave. Hello?

Picture this:

Scan a twenty page document.

Get an error message.

Scan a twenty page document again.

Get an error message.

Do it again. (Much swearing going on.)

Finally takes and uploads to Evernote.

This happened with the majority of the pages I had to scan. I LOVED this scanner. It was fast. It uploaded to Evernote. It was convenient. It’s small and unobtrusive and sits in the little nook beside my chair.

Now, thanks to the update, it’s almost unusable.

I think I’ve figured out a workaround, but it’s a doozy. I’m going to upload the software to Parallels, where I’m running Windows 10 as a virtual operating system, and see if I can get it to work.

I’m sure that Apple, in its infinite wisdom, was updating their operating system because of a genuine need, but did it have to break so many other things?

Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

Oh, Gag, It’s Raining Again

Oh, Gag, It’s Raining Again

 

It’s raining again.

Again.

I thought we were through the worst of it.

As you know, Lord Stanley refuses to do his thing in the rain. That wouldn’t be all that bad except for one thing: it’s supposed to rain next week, too.

I’m flying to the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa for surgery on Monday. My son volunteered to take a few days of vacation and come and stay at my house with Lord Stanley. That way Stanley doesn’t have to be boarded and howl for three days while I’m gone.

Back to the rain. There’s a 50% chance of rain next week which means that John is going to have to watch Stanley like a hawk so he doesn’t have accidents in the house. I think Stanley is a Dog Prince in disguise, especially since he doesn’t like so many things. His food has to be just a certain way. The patio and the yard have to be bone dry. It’s a good thing Stanley’s utterly cute and a great cuddle partner.

Even better – he adores John. John’s already told him that they’re going to have a bachelor week. 🙂 (I just hope Stanley doesn’t let the merriment get out of hand.)
