I installed yet anther WordPress update today. They have far too many bug fix and security updates. Meanwhile, the database it uses, which is much more complicated, has a maintenance release every few months. I know it’s a different audience and business model. But you can’t keep expecting people to test and verify updates every few weeks. It’s getting to be quite tiresome.
All our computers restarted correctly after the batch last Windows Updates. It’s shouldn’t be notable; but it is worth mentioning given the recent problems we had. Computers can be a lot more troublesome than they should be sometimes. Hopefully it’s the beginning of a trend that will leave me with more free time.
Our pool gets closed a week from today. They do a good job; but, to us, it marks the unofficial end of warm weather. We got in it this past weekend but a cold front is moving in today so that was probably the last time for the season. The scheduling was timely.

You don’t see me wearing them in most of the photos we post; but I wear progressive bifocals. I prefer them to normal bifocals; however, they are somewhat finicky and need to be regularly adjusted. I’ve never had good vision … Continue reading

Here are some photographs of The Wife’s new diaphragm. Unlike her old one, its “ergonomically designed”. They are relatively rare devices and getting harder and harder to find. The style she previously used was discontinued by the manufacturer. And the … Continue reading
We had a good twilight row yesterday. The evening was warm an there was almost a full moon. Very relaxing. It’s probably our last one of the season which makes us a little bit sad. Evenings in mid-October tend to … Continue reading
We are not complaining; but both our smart thermostat and our utility bill say we used less energy last month than the same time last year even though the summer was warmer. We’re hoping for a mild fall and a … Continue reading
The ice-maker in our new refrigerator wouldn’t dispense any ice today. I know from past experience that ice-makers are prone to failure so I was already starting to worry about having to fix it since its built into the door … Continue reading
We never did get a new camera as we had planned. Principally because our current one we currently have has been (mostly) trouble free all summer. It’s still finicky and definitely needs replacement. But we haven’t had the sort of problems that would bring it to the top of the list of items to be replaced and retired. It would be nice to have one with a remote control. Then I wouldn’t have to jump up out of bed so abruptly after a photo session.
