We took advantage of another great weather day and moved a fair few things to the Motor Home. Kitchen items and clothes being the biggies. Well, Kelly's clothes anyway. Checked all the solar batteries and tires. Double checked the oil level again as well and fired up the generator for 20 minutes. Water pump checked out OK as did a test firing of our Legacy Blue Flame heater. We are traveling with a new Shaw/Star Choice TV receiver this year as well as a new tech savvy dish and LMB. Of course I am leery about the new equipment but Kelly feels confident we will be alright with everything. I just remember too many frustrations and 'tearing out of hair' with all that satellite type stuff from a few years ago.
Kelly's patience and computer skills never cease to amaze me. She just keeps working away at a problem and goes that extra mile until she figures it out and wrestles it to the ground. If it wasn't for Kelly's computer smarts I would probably still be in pencil and paper mode. Our neighbour Monica, who recently went to Florida for the winter found that once she got there she could not access the Bayfield Bunch blog with her different service provider, Comcast. Kelly had Monica download a program called LOG ME IN which enabled Kelly to gain permitted access to Monica's computer in Florida from our computer here in Bayfield. Kelly then determined Monica’s problem and changed the DNS servers on Monica's computer. As soon as she did that Monica once again had access to our blog. Kelly first set this up for her Mother's computer as well over in Spencerport New York about a year ago. At any time if her Mother has a problem with her computer Kelly can just log in from wherever we are and have a look at her Mother's computer. We have that 'Log Me In' program on all three of our computers so theoretically if our desktop was on here at home all winter we could access it any time if we had to from anywhere we are. And, this ‘Log Me In’ is a free program too:))
HERE’S KELLY TAKING THE RIG FOR A RUN BACK IN HER LONG HAIR DAYS:))
Oh, and Kelly just straightened out my iPod as well. She was able to figure out how to stop it from shuffling between playlists. Right now she is tracking down a problem on her work cell phone. Incoming text messages have stopped leaving an audible alert. I'm sure she will have that all straightened out right quick. She has been trying to get me straightened out for over 18 years now but of course that's proving to be a bit of a bigger challenge for her. But, with a bit of patience……………………:))
Weather is not looking good for our Saturday departure at the end of the week. Rain predicted for Thursday, Friday and Saturday with daytime temps dropping to the mid 30's. Big change from today’s 60F. We will definitely want to have the rig completely ready for travel by the end of Wednesday. Don't want to have to be loading things in freezing cold rain. Oh well, at least it's not snowing. And at least we are not stuck sitting here for the entire winter. Despite all my complaining sometimes, we are truly fortunate people:))
Occasionally there are times when I sit down here at the keyboard and am totally void of any inspiration to write anything. There are always interesting things to write about of course, but it is just sometimes I question what it is I write about every day. Are my posts too personal at times, too repetitive perhaps, too predictable. The topics are interesting to me of course but are they really of that much interest to others as well. It seems I sometimes hit the nail on the head and as often as not I feel like I have missed the mark by a country mile. Anyway, just wanted to get that off my chest simply because it was on my mind today. My head just kinda works like that sometimes…………………………..10-4
