I thought (hoped) we had won the battle of problems with the blog and my author’s website not coming up or showing a phishing warning for people using Google Chrome. At least for the daily blog. But when I published yesterday’s blog, I had the same issue. People using Microsoft Edge and other web browsers could access the blog, but nobody using Google Chrome could. So we are still fighting the battle.
As for my author’s website, the only solution may be to delete the entire thing and start over. Nothing else has worked to this point. Greg White, who has forgotten more about computers and the Internet than I will ever begin to know is working on it, and I really appreciate all of his help.
Good news for people who like to blacktop boondock. In their recent e-mail newsletter, the folks from Casino Camper report that an expansion project at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino in Maricopa, Arizona has been completed and RVs are once again allowed to park there overnight. If you’re leaving the Yuma area and are and headed east or north, this could be a good overnight stop for you.
The same newsletter also reminded readers that New Mexico’s Annual Camping Pass is a heck of a deal for anybody planning to spend some time camping there. The pass costs $180 for New Mexico residents, $100 for New Mexico residents age 62 or over or who are disabled, and $225 for non-residents.
Passholders can dry-camp for free at any New Mexico State Park with camping facilities or pay $4/night for a site with electric, or $8/night for sites with electric and sewer. Stay limits are 14 days and you can’t return to the same park for 14 days, but you can go right to another state park and get the same price. The passes are good for a full year and can be a real money saver if you utilize them. You can learn more about camping at New Mexico State Parks at this link.
If you have a Honda EU2200i, EU2200i Companion, or EB2200i portable generator, you may want to check your serial number. The company is currently recalling some of their generators due to a safety hazard that could allow gasoline to leak from the fuel valve, posing fire and burn hazards. I’m a big fan of Honda generators. They are quiet, very fuel efficient, and are just about bulletproof. We actually have three of them sitting in our garage for the next power outage. I need to check the serial numbers on ours today and see if they are included in the recall. You can find out more information at this link.
And in closing, 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.
Thought For The Day – I thought it would be romantic if the wife and I cuddled naked on a bearskin rug in front of a roaring fireplace. As it turns out, Cracker Barrel has rules against that.
