For most of my working life I have been my own boss. I guess that’s probably because I don’t seem to play well with others. One thing I always tried to do, and always preached to my employees, is that the customer comes first. If you treat your customers right and make them glad they […]

My friend Brenda Speidel calls me Gadget Boy because I always like checking out the latest high tech toys available. And yesterday I got to play with a couple of neat ones. We started out looking at smart TVs at Best Buy. I wasn’t really sure what a smart TV was, so I asked one […]

Monday afternoon Terry did the final proof read on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I uploaded it to our printer’s web server back in Michigan. If all goes well we’ll have it back to us here in Phoenix early next week and get it mailed out before we leave for Show Low […]

First of all, I want to thank everybody who e-mailed and left comments on Facebook about my fall the other night. My wrist, arm, and shoulder really ached all Saturday and much of yesterday, but by late evening most of the swelling had gone down and it didn’t hurt much at all. Yesterday, we spent […]

Terry and I are still feeling crappy. I suspect that what we thought was a cold may be the flu. Whatever it is, it sucks.  We had better get well soon, because we’re about out of meds, and we both have cabin fever. I’d like to say that I’m taking advantage of the downtime to […]

It’s Black Friday, let the madness begin! For the next month, I will do everything in my power to avoid any WalMart, Sam’s Club, Best Buy, or any of the other big box stores. I just can’t handle the crowds and all of the “happy” holiday shoppers pushing, shoving, and scrabbling to save a buck […]

It’s windy again here in Northern Arizona, go figure. Yesterday,  for the fourth time in four weeks, Interstate 40 east of Flagstaff was closed due to high wind and blowing dust. Will it ever stop? The wind blew hard all day yesterday, with gusts over 60 miles per hour. It never let up all night […]

Thanks to everyone who posted comments to the blog or sent e-mails with suggestions of replacement laptop computers for Terry. And thanks especially to our pal Jim Guld from Geeks on Tour. I was on the phone several times with Jim yesterday trying to resolve the issues with Terry’s Compaq, and then again as we […]

I wrote a blog about being techno challenged a while back, and said that I rely on Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour whenever I get in over my head with computers and my websites, which happens on a regular basis. Well, the gremlins that live inside all computers launched an attack the […]
