David Carr from Carr Communications has been busy the last few days moving my blog from Go Daddy to a new host, and I think he’s been successful. There were several times during the day yesterday when people couldn’t get to the blog, or if they could, there were no photos or something like that wrong, which was all part of the migration process. But I think that’s all behind us now. I’m looking forward to being able to not having to argue with Go Daddy on an almost weekly basis and being able to focus on the things I really need to get done.
So what did I do yesterday, besides standing by and talking to David by Instant Messenger as he was doing things? Well, I wrote another chapter in my new John Lee Quarrels book, proofed it, and then researched a couple of things to make sure I had them correct. As it turned out, I had one right and one wrong, so I had to go back and make some changes to the chapter to remedy that.
One of the great things about living on the Atlantic coast is that we get lots of seafood. Of course, we have not been going to restaurants since we got back from Arizona in March, but there is plenty of fresh seafood to be purchased at the local grocery stores and at Gary’s, our favorite meat market. The last time we were there, Terry got some nice cod fillets, and that’s what she made for dinner yesterday. They were the best I’ve ever had anywhere in my life.
After dinner, while Terry was doing the dishes (I keep offering to help her, and she keeps telling me no), I read over the chapter I wrote earlier to see if there was anything else that needed to be corrected, then we retired to the living room to watch TV. Two of our favorite shows were on, Finding Your Roots and This Is Us, and both were excellent episodes. I would love to sit down with Henry Louis Gates Jr., the host of Finding Your Roots, some time and spend an afternoon talking to him. Actually, listening to him. He has a brilliant mind.
Speaking of television, Sunday night, we watched the premiere of All Creatures Great And Small on Masterpiece Theatre. If you are familiar with James Herriot and his books about life as a veterinarian in rural England, you’re going to love this remake of the 1970s TV series. We are hooked and have it set to record automatically.
We have Samsung smart TVs in our living room and bedroom, and I was trying to access YouTube on the living room TV last night to show something to Terry, and for some reason, I couldn’t get it to open. In fact, I couldn’t do much with it at all. There was a message on the screen saying I needed to update our web browser, but every time I tried to update it, I got a message saying the update failed, or else that there was no update available. I don’t know what that’s all about, but I’ll have to do some research and figure out what I’m doing wrong. I tried the same thing with our bedroom TV and had no problem at all.
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us. This one is courtesy of my friend Jim Harper.
Thought For The Day – During my recent colonoscopy, I had my doctor write a note to my wife telling her that my head is not up there!
