I spent most of yesterday dealing with computer issues. I started out deleting any personal files from my old Asus old laptop, which is going to a good home, and getting it boxed up and ready to ship out. As I said a couple of days ago in a blog titled Frustration City, when I […]

My driver’s license may say I live in Edgewater, Florida, but yesterday I felt like I spent much of the day in Frustration City. That’s not a pleasant place to be, and I’m not a pleasant person to be around when I’m stuck there. The day started off on a bad note when I stepped […]

The comfortable temperatures of mid to upper 70s that we’ve been enjoying for the last week or so in Elkhart have gone away and for the last two days it’s been in the upper 80s. And it looks like we will be in the mid to upper 80s for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, the basement […]

We have met some interesting people in our 15 years as fulltime RVers running a business on the road. Most have been nice, but some have been, shall we say, interesting? Challenging? Unique? Early in our fulltime adventure we had signs on our truck that said Gypsy Journal RV Travel Newspaper. Once, we were approached […]

Yesterday was a horrible day for me, because I had to get up at 5 a.m. so we could be dressed, and have the motorhome ready to roll when the factory techs came to get it a 6 a.m. Anybody who knows me knows that I hate getting up early in the morning. I do […]

I spent most of yesterday busily doing nothing, and managed to get most of it done. Don Bingham, a faithful blog reader and newly retired Apple employee, contacted me to congratulate me on my new iPad and to tell me that he wanted to present me with three great apps; Apple Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, […]

When I first heard about Apple’s new tablet computer, I have to admit that my first reaction was “So what? I already have a desktop computer, a laptop computer, and a netbook computer. What can the iPad do that they can’t?” Then I saw my first iPad, and my immediate reaction was “I want one!”  […]

As I reported last week, our Verizon air card has been giving us a lot of grief lately. We had frequent periods when service was very slow, and we were getting knocked offline over and over again. The problem happened at any time of the day or night, but more frequently in the evening, from […]

Before we were even dressed yesterday morning, somebody was knocking on our door, and it seemed like the line of people stopping by never ended until well after dark. It was not a good day to get much accomplished. I spent over an hour on the telephone with Jim Guld from Geeks on Tour as […]

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 […]
