Time to do a little housekeeping here on the Cutoff.. As you might remember, my cell phone died just as I was called up to Minnesota on Labor Day, when our little Ezra was born. I won’t bore you with a tale retold, especially one about a cell phone – well, Smart Phone, a Droid, which is really much smarter than I am! You can read it by clicking above.
Just as I was getting into the groove of a phone with email capacity and all the other bells and whistles and applications and such, my email provider dumped me, mid-sentence , and passed me off to someone else, like a blind date at the prom with a better prospect. Let me just say that it wasn’t a pretty picture. I moaned and groaned, couldn’t attach documents or pictures; because there were no preferences. Nothing. Oh, it was just a mess.
So, I decided to change my email provider. It was really rather easy, especially for someone as technically challenged as moi. A click here, another there, a bit of password and username gymnastics, secret questions and there I was, a gal with a plan.
HOWEVER . . .
I couldn’t comment on most other blogs, even those of you on WordPress. Oh me. Oh my. Henny Penny’s sky was truly falling.
I may wail and rant and complain, but, I don’t give up very easily if there is something I really want to do. So, I changed my email address on WordPress, and found that I could once again email with my lifeonthecutoff moniker and the silhouette showed up, but, I noticed a problem with those of you on other blog engines (is that the right phrase?), not to mention I wasn’t getting notices from those of you I have subscribed to.
All that to say, if you haven’t heard from me, it is likely because I’m not yet connected, or, if a strange mix of Penny and Cutoff and ampersands, and various punctuation symbols have you wondering where Penny from the Cutoff is, I’m still here, my friends. I have a regular post brewing right now. Although I was out-of-town for a week, I’m still reading you, catching up, and floating about the blogosphere.
I won’t even mention the computer being down at the library and the librarians all in a flurry trying to remember how to hand process books. Then, there was Walgreens, where I just needed a few sundry items. Their computer was down as well, just as I was checking out. What almost sent me over the rim of reason, all on this very same day, was pushing a shopping cart at the grocer’s that actually had a flat tire. All the thin rubbery stuff hanging off, as if to say, what do expect, Henny Penny, the sky is falling!
Off I go to do some more housekeeping. Hope you are all well.
