Paying The Price

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I needed a break and we took a day off to play. Actually it was more like half a day off, but whatever it was, I’m not going to do that again, because yesterday I was paying the price for it. We were out dropping off sample bundles of […]

My Nose Hurts!

No, I didn’t stick it where it doesn’t belong and get it broken (again), it’s just sore from being held to the grindstone so much lately! I really like my job, but I think I need a day off. With the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, I spent most of yesterday working on […]

As I wrote in my recent blog Bad News For Dish Customers, All American Direct, the company that provided distant network service (DNS) for Dish customers, is going out of business as of February 24. At that time customers will lose their east and west coast network feeds. They can still call Dish to request […]

A Vicious Cycle

Though we know a lot of RVers who are up at the crack of dawn, that has never been our style. Terry and I have always been night owls. One reason I didn’t make the Army my career was because they always wanted me to get up at some ungodly hour when even the early […]

If you’ve been following the whole Phil Robertson media fireworks show, you probably already know that A&E Network has now rescinded its decision to suspend the family patriarch from the popular Duck Dynasty reality TV series. I won’t go into the debate here, it’s been covered everywhere, including on Bad Nick, but I got to […]

Dinner Is Served

It’s that time of year again. RVers are flocking to Arizona to hang out in the desert around Quartzsite, shop the vendors, enjoy the sunsets, meet up with old friends, and feed the coyotes. It seems to be a sad and sickening annual event. Every winter I hear from people that lose pets to coyotes […]

Thanks to everybody who e-mailed or posted suggestions about the ABS light on our Ford Explorer that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog. The problem has been fixed. When I went out yesterday morning, the SUV had developed a really bad shake in the front end that told me it might be more than the […]

Okay, Back To Normal

Okay, Christmas is over and we can start to get back to normal, whatever the heck that is. Of course, the stores will still be total madhouses for a few days as people return all of the gifts they got and don’t want and shop for after-Christmas bargains. But at least we can see the […]

Yeah, Rub It In!

After I wrote about it being cold here in Apache Junction but nice and warm in Florida this winter, blog reader Josh Cashman sent me a photo of the thermometer under his motorhome’s awning, showing 80 degrees in Hollywood, Florida, and Josh wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Yeah, Josh, rub it in! Meanwhile it’s going […]
