Well, I had my share of computer problems the last two weeks or so. I got on here but couldn't make a post or comment to a members post or blog. I was never a true computer person and looks like I forgot what little I did know! I suppose the mind or memory has a lot to do with that issue after surviving any stroke.
I hope all of you that post and comment often has learned about the edit symbol, when you put your arrow on it, it says (toggle editing mode) in the left hand corner so you can use your (Enter)key to make a space or a paragraph when you desire to not put every thing together. The computer repairmen tried to tell me it was my computer not this site but they soon agreed it was in the site. They never saw that done before now.
I found out even if you are a computer Geek problems will come up you can't fix. Oh well, I guess that's how repairmen make their money fixing computer problems we run into often. Many of the carriers are adding more power to their services so you can run more gadgets at the same time or download much faster. It will cost you more each month of course.
Reminds me of the times long ago when antennas on your rooftop to pickup TV channels in your areas was the thing to do then cable came along for a small price and much better reception and more channels. TODAY cable companies carries TV and Computer hookups for a hefty monthly price. Even Satellite is available for about the same price ranges as the cable companies.
We can now get a lot but it also cost a lot. Dumb me, I just now noticed XXX movies are made available on these networks to your house, for a price, not just movies on demand. Here I was thinking that only happened in the big hotel chains. When you don't use it you don't know about it but the repairman mentioned it to me. Certain things we just don't notice sometimes.
I thought you still had to visit a shop to buy those movies, gadgets and clothes on the XXX-rated side of the curtain or use a mail order business like it was when I worked in the post office. In my last Blog I mentioned I was going to get out the house watching all the news and visit the stores and Walmart. Well times has certainly changed and I hadn't noticed in those areas of entertainments.
My mind is on my family, their well being, and trying to pay for what I got already from my limited budget of watching every penny. When you retire with little income you must watch out and not buy when you don't have the funds.
I'll be so glad when I get this house paid off and my wife's car too. That's why I still drive my old 10 year old Ford Explorer and don't plan on another car for another 10 years if I can help it. If it gets me where I need to go by putting in just gas I'm OK with that! How else could I afford to make a Casino run now and then???
This stroke has taught me how to be conservative and when my wife had to quit her job to take care of me at home years ago now the VA has cut me loose from home care so I hope my health holds up as I get older every day. We all know our day will come where we are here no longer.
I have been on this stroke site since 2005, a year after the stroke and I learned a lot about strokes and recovery. I now am beginning to feel my physical body start to slow down. One reason I thought trying to bowl again might be the thing for me to do but that didn't work out to good in my case. I got to figure out something else to do pretty soon that doesn't cost much money.
In my mind I never know what will break down or need to be repaired so I find myself trying to be conservative where I can cover the cost of repairs or replacements in some cases. We all have those concerns I know!! Just to keep this little dog healthy for my grand daughter is like another kid in the house. I see why some folks try to claim them on their income taxes by giving them a social security number. I can never go that route to jail trying to save a few dollars.
Well, my rant is over but I had to get this computer repair bill off my mind. I feel much better now telling somebody because my wife wouldn't listen to me complaining. Guess I just keep paying the bill for the wood floors, the carpets, and the ceramic title she wanted down in the kitchen and bathrooms.
I hope I'm not the first or only survivor that has experienced this situation lately?? It gets old quick!!
