Now that the Thanksgiving weekend is about over (mid-afternoon on Sunday) it’s about time for some rest! This has been a tiring weekend and a VERY trying weekend for some who may read this post. People who live where nothing EVER happens probably complain because nothing ever happens… but turn on the Television and suddenly living in a place where nothing ever happens just might not be so bad? Take for instance the poor worker in California who was trampled to death by crazed shoppers at a WalMart on Black Friday. Or all those who were murdered, wounded or terrified by terrorists in Mumbai, India. And, just getting into the terminal in Bangkok, Thailand became impossible with the protesters filling up the place and bringing Air Travel to a screeching halt there… Hope you weren’t there for the weekend!
Here in my back yard it was just beautiful. Kinda chilly but beautiful for raking up leaves, trimming the vines out front (huge trumpet vine) and finally putting up the Christmas Decorations before it gets too darn cold to put them up at all! And I got to see two out of three of our Kids this weekend and that really made it a winning weekend for me!
Life just can’t be lived TOTALLY in front of my computer… but don’t tell my clients that! They must think I don’t have anything else to do… and if it wasn’t for them, I must might not have anything TO DOo… so no more complaining.
How has this year treated you? Did you accomplish the things you meant to? Build all the business you planned to? I certainly did not meet all my goals but I was able to help a few others meet theirs… and that kinda makes me happy.
This past week I heard from a good friend and client that he’s back! That’s right, Jim’s back! This time last year he was looking at a “prognosis” that was NOT joyous… The doctor said he only had a short time to live. Several EXPENSIVE surgeries later… “golly, gosh” there wasn’t any cancer after all! Surprise, Surprise! Now the “diagnosis” is that he has a CLEAN “Bill of Health!”
If you EVER need INK for your printers, copiers or fax machines, get in touch with Jim and he’ll give you a GREAT price on ALL the INK or TONER you ever need! Visit with Jim HERE.
Actually, this past week had me getting emails from people I met many years ago while traveling all around the world. From places like Midway Island to the Red Sea. Yes, parts of my Navy life really were an “adventure!” Other parts… well, we won’t go there! Hmmmmm.
If you’re really into the blogging scene, you may have noticed that MY blog is still using a rather OLD version of WordPress. It’s about time to backup everything and come bounding into the present and start using the current version of WordPress. I was reading an article in one of Mike Paetzold’s blog posts, recently, where I believe he explained some of those upgrading things. Guess I’ll have to go back there and check it out. You do know who Mike is, don’t you? He is “Mr. Blog.” You can catch him at Mike Paetzold Recommends. Tell him Dave Perkins sent ‘ya!
My upgrade will take more than just a couple of clicks as I’m one of the “over 50” crowd and I’ve been using a hosting company for my websites that has really done me right… but they do not offer the CPanel version of a control panel and my upload of the blog to my server is still via FTP… and since it’s maybe once every couple of years… I really don’t mind. After all, a server that stays online 24/7/365 isn’t one to complain about! If you want really stable and secure hosting for YOUR website, check out my Hosting Company… the price is right and the service is “almost” instant!
Catch you again soon!
