  1. Good luck, I hope it gets sorted out. Customer Service everywhere is not nearly as good as it used to be. So easy to reinstate past detours and service levels with a single click. Nobody notices, nobody cares to check if everything still applies 'today'. Everyone smiles and nods, everyone is pleased, nobody seems to care about errors and omissions. Many people in customer service seem to think that the average caller is just an old dumb Joe and knows nothing of what they are talking about. (It's not difficult to discern between an average dumb Joe and someone that knows their business) It's really a dead end calling customer service. And nowadays there are no other phone numbers available to the public, one has to go through 3-1-1 or whatever.
  2. Short of child-proofing the condo, I turned the breaker off to the garburator. At least that way if there is something in there that shouldn't be in there, it won't get turned on accidentally. It's a good thing she doesn't have kids, she'd be just the sort to leave baby somewhere and wander off.
  3. Actress Mary Mara passed away June 26, 2022 at the age of 61.
  4. Room mate has absolutely no presence of mind. What I thought were big chunks of green lettuce and orange carrot sticks in the garburator turned out to be a green and orange striped 'pot scrubby' cloth. Room mate basically subsists on junk food, and I didn't have lettuce or carrots yesterday (I would have put big chunks in the trash anyhow) so I reached into the garburator (mostly out of curiosity) to pull out whatever it was. Good thing too, if someone had turned on the garburator, that innocent little pot scrubby would have done a lot of damage. She left a pop bottle lid in the garburator once, left the stove on twice, and got hair ribbons wound around the vacuum motor once. What next ??? I really wonder how she has made it thus far in life. Worse than a child sometimes. SMH.
  5. A kind neighbor brought over some hot-out- of-the-oven baked beef penne pasta.
  6. Because the unwashed masses associate Boxing Day with great deals. They may not bat an eye at 'Summer Sale' but salivate and froth at the merest suggestion of 'Boxing Day'. It's a gimmick. They are all gimmicks. Probably not even that great of a sale, but if it brings people out with credit cards in their hands, that's all that matters. Sad but true.
  7. Baked Potato with Bacon Jam for supper. Dessert was a McIntosh apple with Danish Tilsit cheese.

  19. Lunch: Swim pal just baked some delicious home made Chicken Pot Pies and brought over two for me. She's a professional baker. They are fresh and still hot from the oven. I couldn't resist one. Supper: Neighbor brought over some pasta salad. Dessert is a fresh baked Raisin Scone (from swim pal) and an apple.
  20. Happy Fathers Day to the Dads on CPTDB
  21. Kids these days ... My children (AKA the birds and assorted critters that come to my balcony) left a half eaten worm on the ledge and a bread crust in the bird bath...
  22. Spicy Salmon with sliced pickled beets and Hugarian Fruit Soup (stewed cherries, blueberries and apricots) with a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt. I also had a slice of Tiramisu cake that a swim pal baked, but it fell sideways out of the pan and ended up not looking photogenic, although it was tasty.
  23. Actor Tyler Sanders passed away Thursday June 16, 2022 at the age of 18.
  24. Lunch with the Swim Squad. Riblings 'n' Beans at Tony Roma's.
  25. Not my FML moment but my neighbors (Lydia). We were going to run errands and she was to collect me from the coffee shop and we were going to go from there. I waited about 45 minutes for her. I tried texting and calling her, but she must not have topped up her cell phone because nothing was going through. Anyhow, her friend Joan ended up texting me to say that Lydia is waiting for the police because when she got to her car, someone was sleeping in it. Her day didn't get much better after that. Actually I did have an FML moment, but not earth shattering. While at the Bakery / Deli there were three items on my list of things to buy that they were out of *sigh*. Still managed to get the other items though, so not a total waste of time.
