MAR 19, 24 .. SPRING 2024 IS HERE !!

Yes! Today Spring 2024 has arrived.

Spring here in the amazing State of Arizona.

Yes the below very recent photos ARE indeed in Arizona.

Flagstaff, up in Northern Arizona, sits at 6,821 (almost 7,000) feet above sea level.

The summit of the Arizona Snow Bowl sits at 11,500 feet above sea level!!

Welcome Spring 2024.

I could write and write and yes write some more about yesterday, Monday the 18th of March.

Last Friday, and yesterday, as the owner of our website, I spent at least three hours on the phone and online, with our website service provider Midphase our IT Service Management Company.

My webmaster Andrej is the brains here, but as the owner, only I can do certain things such as provide the funds to pay for our website. Andrej was not able to join me to assist me navigating some technical issues. Wonder of wonders, I was finally successful.

If anyone thinks sitting for a hour and a half waiting for one’s turn with a “Live Chat Agent” is fun, guess again. It is tedious, stressful, nerve wracking and tense waiting to finally get an agent and realizing that your connection can be dropped in a nanosecond.

Then these agents are High Tech Geeks and have little or no sympathy or patience with the likes of me. “But Sir I don’t understand how to do what you are telling me to do!”

My incomplete chat ended suddenly with being told “Thank you for contacting Midphase. If we may be of further service please contact us again in the future!”

“But, but, but I am not through Sir!”

It has been two full years since Andrej has done a full maintenance of our website.

Good News: I don’t know how or what I did, but I did manage to arrange for Andrej to gain access to the inner workings of

Other News: Andrej may have to shut down to do what he needs to do.

So? Our, yours and mine, streak (545 days today) of not missing a day publishing a Post may very well end soon. March 31st would be an even year and a half (18 full months).

I had a day Monday as-good-at-it-normally-gets at the Havasu Landing Casino slot machines Rocky and Wonder Woman.

I bet $20 and came home with $16.15. My nice afternoon with Eddie our neighbor cost me $3.85 cents. Not bad at all!

    Happy Spring Equinox! What a spectacular day it is here in our paradise! Regarding Andrej having to shut down the site to do some maintenance and updating then it seems all worth it. And you won’t have to sit on hold with tech support for hours and hours. That is, indeed a painful experience!
    I pray you and Patti have a most glorious day!
    Love ya both!

      Thanks for your comment Michael. Yes Oh Yes. What a glorious past few days we have had. I just commented that Oh My it is difficult when, on a long hold, say an hour, you suddenly “get dropped”. Just like that you are back at square one. Or you get someone who just is NOT present nor seemingly even interested. Or someone from out of the county you can’t understand! Smiles.. Cap and Patti

    I do so hate to wait on hold. The music is usually horrid but I can’t turn the volume down lest I miss the person who finally answers. I love when I hear the announcement “we can call you back and you won’t lose your place in the queue.” YES YES YES, sign me up.

    I’m glad you were able to things working and get access for Andrej. It’s good to have an IT guru who can help.

      Thanks Kathleen for another comment. Oh My it is difficult when, on a long hold, say an hour, you suddenly “get dropped”. Just like that and you are back at square one. So far so good. It will take Andrej at least a day or two to get cranked up on updating our website. Smiles.. Cap and Patti
