Monday's Madness is my Blog

Madness, Frustration, confusion and mayhem, yup that is how I feel my day went. Since I have had computer worked on upgraded and changed not much is normal for me.
Can you tell I am not much for change especially major ones during busy times?

We upgraded to Leopard and we upgraded so many programs and so many of them are still saying need more upgrding. Thanksgiving my son spent his entire time checking and reseting another upgrade. Strange when we upgraded it said done never thought the next day would start such an adventure.

Hurray for the day, Mary got an email from a cousin in Utah looking for Tatum's with us.

Bright spot in day was the upteenth time I put in my name and my address and code and it finally gave me back to my blog page of origins. Not the one I accidentally created two days ago. Yes I have a cheat sheet with codes and passwords laminated by my desk.

So now I have a blog to be at each email address. I will think on this a bit before I go farther. I suspect the one address in time will go away but hanging on as long as I can because so much family and data out on web with that name and address I am sure I could never remember where all I posted since 1989.

Bill West I understand the frustration because I finally switched to higher up grade than dial up. ALas it is faster but along comes many other scourges with it.

I have upgraded about three years ago. We combined the computer, the tv, and the phone in a bundle. The bad thing is when one goes all goes. I only dropped my A T & T line in September this year because service has been iffy for all the family in the area.

I also think each time they add a new customer we are all booted for a period of time.
This fall has been really bad. So there is no perfect or near perfect world.

I rely on my cell phone probably more than I should because now I am finding messages being delivered days and weeks later. Calls going to Mexico when no one called them etc.

So as of right now I am back on my Blog page. How soon I will be able to get back on it again remains to be seen.

This is the start of a joyous season for most citizens and I sure hope that it remains that way. I may sound like it was a gripe but I am grateful for the ability to reach my family on line, my friends on line and share pictures and information so quickly when it is working.

The meeting of new friends and sharing of places is so awesome. Even when MOM was here she would ask daily, whom did we hear from today. Since our family other than immediate immediate is in the midwest and east it is something she would love to have in her home. She would need Speak and Say due to eyesight but will work on that after we see about hearing aids they are going to set us back a penny.

She loved that we could make the type large and enlarge pictures and get answers generally rather quickly. I do to. So thanks for listening and have a

BE very careful on the road and walking on sidewalks. Seems to be the new freeway in our area.

To my Jewish friends I wish you also the best of your and my holiday season. Jesus was a Jewish boy and practiced that religion, ( man I dislike that word Religion) I believe in Faith.

Maybe if I do not get back on I will make this computer the Tombstone Tuesday event.

Bury it. BLessings all..


  1. Sons are wonderful, and even more wonderful when they help their mothers with their computer problems. I too had computer help from my son over the Thanksgiving holiday --- and for that I was THANKFUL.

  2. I don't know what a Leopard is, if it isn't a cat with spots.

    I'm trying to help with the Senior Computer Club website. Maybe that wasn't such a good idea. Now I feel pressure because other people are counting on me. I spent a good part of the day trying to understand why something I did doesn't work.

    I'm empathetic with the problems you have been describing. It's fun to use, but not fun to fix.
