Astros: CB breaks 3,000

I missed the game.
I started to listen to it on the radio but thought....heck...he is three away it will not happen 'til next game.

Oh, well you and I can all watch the highlights here.

Shopping: Banquet Crock Pot Classics

I tried the stroganaff kind and it stunk up the whole house. It didn't taste any better than it smelled and the mushrooms were kinda slimy.

yuck

Don't you hate it when: You have to call the cable co??

I have not gotten a cable bill in months, but it is not that big of a deal because I pay it online anyway. I suspect because I tend to pay online, I was switched to paperless billing.
I know I did not sign up for paperless billing, but I'm sure that is what happened.

anyways....

Time Warner Cable is now Comcast.
And this new entity has spent about a gillion marketing dollars announcing their arrival and touting their awesome customer service record.

I bet you see where I am going with this...don't you.

Well, my bill is due and the site to register your account to pay online has been not working for the entire 10 days we have been blessed with Comcast.
At least is is not working for me.

Today I give up and call customer service.
The hold was not horribly long but when I got with someone to explain I need to pay my bill because I can not log in she requested I register at the Comcast site.
This was after I had just said I there is an "this feature is not available" error message that comes up after I type in my information.

Surely I am not the only person having this issue

Well she was not rude, but a little pissy and asked that I try again with her on the line with me.
No go.
Then she said she can do it for .......Thankyou!

So after all that I have my new password, said my goodbyes and attempted to log in and at long last pay my cable bill.

PASSWORD INVALID
shit

Road Trip

So I am planning the big road trip. I have been ordering and down loading some vacation guides so we can pick some activities to do along the way.
Boy there is a lOT Of stuff to do between here and there!

I need more time for this one...and money!

I'm So Blond: and it's a miracle I haven't burned my house down yet

So I come dragging out of bed needing coffee and there are too many cats to count circling like I better hurry up with the darn Friskies at 5am in the dark when notice a faint glow coming from the stove.

Yup, I left a burner on all night.

I thought it was kinda odd that one pan was still hot when I washed up the after dinner dishes last night.

duh

I'm so blonde: and I lose stuff too

So I am looking for something in my wallet and realize both my Visa and AMEX are not there.
I go through all my purses,--that's a LOT of purses-- and look all on the floor of my car before giving up and calling them in as lost.
Now, when you call, the telephone robot asks you to enter the account number.
Since I do not have my cards, I cannot give this information.
I even pulled the bills and there is only XXX-XXX-4numbers on those bills.
Finally after Rosie the Robot asks about 3 times for this all important number a human came on the line to take my request.
What a hassle.
Luckily they have not been used, but where in the heck did I lose two cards from INSIDE my wallet...sigh.

Shopping: Oreo Dunkers


So I thought these looked pretty cool and got some to try then realized they are very hard to twist and eat the filling and I don't like milk so I don't dunk cookies anyways.
Guess I better stick with the round kind..ha.

Friday Cat Blogging: Table For Eight, Please

The Friday Ark

On The Island: Juneteenth

On June 19, 1865, 2,000 federal troops arrived on Galveston Island to take possession of the state and enforce the emancipation of its slaves. This was more than 2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation had officially taken effect.

Standing on the balcony of the Ashton Villa, Major General Gordon Granger read the contents of “General Order No. 3” and as a tradition is read again on the very same spot every June 19th.

Road Trip!

Even though we really can't afford it and I should not take the time away from my business we feel two years is long enough to go without a road trip.

So...next month we will be heading to the East Coast
to visit this trio of trouble.

Global Warming Causes Kittens?

Now here I was thinking the homeless kitten problem is due to irresponsible pet owners not fixing their cats or worse dumping pregnant cats on their neighbors to deal with!
Silly me.

Payment Number 60!

I just mailed off the final payment for my car!
WooHOO!
Now maybe I can afford to take it in and find out why that damn engine light keeps coming on.
I think it knows, somehow it just knows.

Frustrating!

So I got my computer back from the computer hospital and the guy was able to save my files.
That is good.
What is not good is having all these shortcuts that used to go to programs that are not installed anymore and trying to find all these discs and nothing is updated or working right anymore.
*breath*
So basically my computer is back but it's not back, if you know what I mean.

Tummy Tuesday!
