Okay, I admit it, my friend Greg White was right. Last September when we were shopping for our iMac computers, Greg kept telling me that while Macs have a good reputation, they are still computers and they still break down from time to time. Of course, I didn’t want to hear that. Greg was right.
Yesterday morning when I fired my iMac up, I got a gray screen with the Apple logo, and a rotating circle, but nothing else. After going through all of the troubleshooting steps I could find with no success, I called Apple’s Customer Support. A very nice tech, who spoke English and was in Austin, Texas, spent close to an hour with me, and eventually I had to restore the computer from my backup hard drive. I have no idea what caused the problem, but it’s resolved now, and Greg has proven to be right (again). I hate it when that happens. 🙁
Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I was able to spend some time with my doctor’s RN yesterday, and to have a few moments with the doctor herself. I got my prescriptions renewed, except for one that they decided I don’t need anymore, because my A1C levels have improved.
Consultations requests have been put in with the appropriate clinics for a couple of issues that need to be addressed, and hopefully I’ll be getting a call to come in for them after our Yuma rally.
The bad news is that Miss Terry and I have come down with terrible allergy attacks and/or colds. Sneezing, itchy eyes, achy, all of the fun stuff. It seems to happen to us every time we come back to Arizona. If it weren’t for our Arizona rally and our family members who live here, we’d be perfectly happy to stay in Florida all winter.
After we were done with the V.A., we spent the evening with my cousin Bev. She is one of the reasons we always look forward to coming back to Arizona every year. We’re looking forward to spending more time with her when we get back to Tucson after the rally.
Dennis Baumgarden and a couple of other blog readers told me about an update that Verizon had for the Novatel 4510L MiFi device and Dennis sent me the instructions on how to do the update. After we got back from Bev’s last night, I did the update and so far it seems to be making a difference. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
We’re leaving Tucson today and moving up to Apache Junction for a couple of weeks for family time with Terry’s parents before we go to Yuma for our rally. It’s going to be a very busy couple of weeks, what with family visits, getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal out and getting ready for the rally. I need more hours in the day!
