DNS and Date Shakes . . .

After our coffee and muffins this morning, I got on the phone with my client, Network Solutions, and Godaddy. I was trying to transfer a domain name from Network Solutions over to my Godaddy account. As seems usual with NS, they keep screwing up this domain name, changing the DNS info back and forth, and shutting the website down. So I’ve submitted all the requests and now it’s just wait and see.

A little later Jan and I changed the sheets on our bed. We’ve had two sets of these 1500 thread count sheets for over a year now and we still think they’re great. They’re very soft, yet after a year’s use, there’s no wear or pilling seen.

They come in 6 or 7 different colors (we have the Burgandy and the Light Blue), and even better,they’re not expensive. Only around $25 a set. Check’em out.

About 2pm Jan and I headed out to meet Nick, Terry, and Nick’s cousin Bev at the local Fuddrucker’s for ‘linner’, or ‘lupper’, if you prefer. We really like Fuddrucker’s, but for some reason we don’t eat here a lot. It just never seems to come up when we’re talking about where to eat.

But as usual, it was really good. While Jan had a Cheddar Mushroom Burger, I had the Ribeye Steak Sandwich, one of my favorites. Unfortunately, not too many places have one like this. There was a place in Cottonwood AZ, that used to have one, but Nick says they don’t offer it any more. Bummer. I was looking forward to having one in a few weeks.

After the meal, we split up for a while, with Jan and I getting gas for the truck for our road trip tomorrow, while Nick and Terry took Bev to get some groceries. Then meeting up back at Bev’s, I spent some time ‘degunking’ Bev’s laptop, using CCleaner and Glary Utilities. Then I updated her Super AntiSpyWare and Malware Bytes, and ran scans with both, as well as AVG. No problems found, and her machine runs much faster now.

Tomorrow Jan and I are taking a day trip over to Yuma to have lunch with Chris and Charles Yust, and visit the big flea market. Along the way we’ll stop off in Gila Bend so I can renew my Elk’s Lodge membership there.

Oh, and Jan also wants to stop at Dateland for one of their delicious Date Milk Shakes. Sounds good to me.


Thought for the Day:
