Still No News . . .

Last week we were told that the rig would be ready Saturday at the earliest and Monday at the latest.

Well, it’s late now.

When I hadn’t heard from Big Wheel RV by 2pm, I put in a call to them and asked to speak to Gary, the service manager. I was told he was busy out in the yard and would call me back, but that he normally didn’t do call-backs until about 5pm.

Well, here it is going on 9pm and still no Gary. I get the feeling ole Gary ain’t going to be calling tonight.

Of course we’re certainly not uncomfortable here at Brandi’s beautiful home. How could anyone be uncomfortable here?

Even better with this meal she and Jan fixed tonight with a roasted pork loin, roasted carrots, potatoes, and onions, and zucchini pasta. Really, really good.

But as Jan says, ‘We just want back in our home’.

Plus I’m kind of worried about the refrigerator. We’ve been running it on gas since last Saturday, the 5th, so I’m not sure how much longer it will run, or that maybe it’s already run out. We had slightly under half a tank at that time, and I don’t have any idea how much gas it actually uses over a period of time. Hopefully we’ll know one way or the other pretty soon.

I made some more headway at the client’s today, finally getting control of the Godaddy account that holds all the company domain names, so now I can proceed with moving the website up to Godaddy’s servers, instead of the client’s backroom closet.

And on that note, the client got a good reason to regret having the webserver in-house when the Comcast internet was down for about an hour, and calls started coming in from customers wondering what happened to the website.

I’ve also been going through everything, changing passwords and looking for any possible ‘backdoors’ left in the system. And I’ve been changing all the ‘notification’ emails from the old IT guy’s address to mine.

Busy, busy, busy.

Thought for the Day:

    So sorry about your rig delays Greg…I have a very hard time understanding lack of information in this information age!! So the manager had no time to call you…really?  GRRR….

    Go Daddy is a good choice. I switched from Bluehost to Go Daddy a year and a half ago and don’t regret it at all. The few times I have had a problem or a question, they were available and It was them, here in the US (Chandler, AZ I believe) not a offshore support house. Good luck on the transition.

    Greg, if you have 1/2 tank of propane and only running the 4 door Norcold  1200,  your good for at least 2 plus weeks. No worry.  Bob

    Greg, not sure why we put up statues of enemies of the United States but don’t put up any new statues of our military heros that have served since WWII. We honor generals who lost a war with statues but shun Medal of Honor winners of today. Don’t get it.

      That’s just it. They are not enemies of the U.S.

      By an Act of Congress, Public Law 85-425, Section 410, all Confederate veterans are considered US veterans and all monuments and grave sites are to be honored the same as US veterans.

      This is FEDERAL LAW and it’s been that way for decades.

      And in fact it is against FEDERAL LAW to tear down a Confederate monument or statue.
