Traditional Thursday #328

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airI complain a lot about the winter weather since we can’t do nearly as much outside as we can during the summer. I would complain a lot more if we didn’t have an attached garage and I didn’t have covered parking and long-range remote start I didn’t park when I’m at work or running errands. When you use them every day, luxuries almost seem like necessities. We’ve probably become spoiled; but I like it that way. It makes the winter tolerable.

Tuesday Two For #325

It’s cold outdoors; but its warm inside. Partly because I turned the heat a couple of degrees so it wasn’t so drafty. And partly because we decided to make our own warmth. Not much to do except stay in and wait until it’s not so bitter cold. If you are inside the vortex, say warm and stay safe. And, if you are not, enjoy your good fortune (and the accompanying warmth).

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherWith all of the useless new features that have been added to WordPress, the developers still have not added a way to undo an accidentally scheduled post despite it having been being a feature request for many years. There are a bunch of kludges in their knowledgebase that don’t work. Its free so I shouldn’t complain. But the continued adding of new features at the expense of fixing existing bugs is frustrating.

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airI ordered an item online last week that still hasn’t shipped even though today is already the second day of the three day “delivery window”. I wonder how a company that does not honor their shipping guarantees stays in business. It seems like they would run out of customers. I know this is the first and last thing I am ever buying from them. I’m cancelling the order if it doesn’t ship by tomorrow.

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherToday is hump day (in more ways than one). We both are very glad for the short week. It’s hard to get back into the swing of things after a long vacation. And even more so in the winter when it’s cold and dreary outside. Hopefully you also had a short week and its going well for you too. Have a great 2019.

Friday Featurette #318

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherI am having a very difficult time finding a new camera. Most mid-level consumer cameras do not have the ability to take time-lapse photos which, obviously, is a requirement. Many of the less expensive ones are made by off shore manufacturers without an (English) online presence which makes it impossible to review the manual for available features. And the product listings online don’t typically have much detail besides price and resolution. So far, the search for an affordable, name brand camera with the necessary functions has been fruitless and frustrating.

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherOur camera wouldn’t stay in the video mode so we couldn’t make a movie in our last photo session. It would only record for a second or so when the start button was pressed. Then it would quit. It keeps getting worse and worse and failing in unexpected ways. It’s especially frustrating since we require unattended operation. It’s annoying to need a new one since we use our mobile phones most everything else.
