A Little Progress . . .

I slept in this morning, until about 11:30, since we didn’t plan to walk today. I still haven’t been able to completely shake this stomach crud that’s bedeviled me for the last few days. No cough or sniffles, no runny nose or sneezing, just a queasy stomach and no real appetite, but it comes and goes. Yesterday I felt OK, but today not so much.

But life goes on and I need to get the washer fixed, so about 2:30 I drove into Conroe to a appliance parts place to see what they had in the way of replacement drain pumps.

The counter guy brought out several for us to look at and compare with my old pump that I brought with me. Finally he came out with this one.

Looking it over, it had real possibilities. First off, the electrical connections were identical and would plug right in with no problems. But the hose connections were a little more problematic in that they weren’t the same size as the original, both input and output being larger. And the input connection comes out the end rather than the side.

But while trying to decide if it was worth buying and trying to make it work, the guy said something that sealed the deal for.

‘It’s free.”

It was from a special order European washer that was damaged in shipment and was not sold, so they parted it out. But while removing the pump, they broke off a piece of the mounting plate, so it couldn’t be sold anyway. He said he kept meaning to throw it away so it was my lucky day.

Getting back home I did put 120vac to it to confirm it runs, and then stuck it in a bowl of water to be sure it pumped. With both these tests passed, now I’ve got to figure out a way to mount it and hook it up. But that’s for tomorrow.

So far, Jan’s Facebook account still has not been re-activated. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a repeat of the short blog I posted earlier today.


Gone From Facebook ?!

Our regular Facebook friends know that a week or so ago, an imposter account under the name Janice White was created, using my photo and info, and then started sending out friend requests to my already-friends.

And about 15 or so of you responded.

At that point, I, and several others, reported the bogus account as an imposter.

FYI, you do this by going to the bogus account profile. This is where all the biographical info is displayed. Then locate the Message box on the right side of the screen, just to the right of the Like button.

Next click on the Gear symbol dropdown and select Report Page and then just follow the prompts to select the reason for the report.

So last night, Facebook, in their infinite wisdom, disabled MY account, not the imposter one. Or maybe they disabled both. I don’t know since I can no longer log into Facebook,

I’ve send them several emails responding to their telling me my account was disabled. Hopefully they will get this straightened out soon.

Could any of you still on Facebook search for a Janice White account using my picture and let me know if it’s still available.

Thanks,

Jan (not Janice) White


Right after I posted yesterday’s blog last night, I went to Facebook to post it there and found Jan’s Facebook account disabled.

I have now written several emails to Facebook with no answer yet. Nick and several others have confirmed that the imposter account under the name of Janice White is still online. So if you have time I would appreciate you searching for the Janice White account under the Find Friends tab and reporting it as bogus. Note that this will not be in your friend’s list, but where you search for new friends.The way to tell it’s the correct one is that it will have Jan’s picture in her red patterned dress, which they copied off the original site.

Thanks.


Thought for the Day:

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government…you might live in a country run by idiots…

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally…you might live in a country run by idiots…
