Into town this morning for the annual Classic Car Show and Shine then
shopped for another cell phone as the AT&T one is CRAP CRAP CRAP; their
coverage is pathetic. Baker City is supposed to have "partner coverage",
well I stood on a nearby hill and NOTHING. So I bought a new Verizon phone
which does work!
New number is 541-450-7180.
Toast for lunch, not a normal lunch I will admit but I had 3
different jams that needed testing. Yum Yum and YUM. Then made a batch of
Peanut Brownies; finally got them right this time. I didn't realise there
were two types of Cocoa here and I had the wrong type originally.
Spent part of afternoon, when not testing Jams and cookies,
updating my GPS. I hadn't known that you can download all sorts of extra
info to them, POI's (Points of Interest). I spent some time consolidating
some of the various data files into (for me) more usable format so now, for
example, I have ONE file for all the supermarkets, another for fuel, auto
parts, campgrounds, parks, etc. Originally they came as separate files for
each TYPE of supermarket and it was a pain scrolling through them, not while
driving OF COURSE! :) I'm quite clever really.
I think I now have all my software loaded across from my old
laptop onto the new one. Not going to dump the old one regardless, so it
will be always be there if I suddenly discover widget v3.2 is missing.
I have a small fly in the RV who is driving me crazy. I've
sprayed him about 6 times and I swear he is using it as underarm. I've named
him SuperFly and it's time for the swat!
Also spent some time this rest (HAH) weekend tidying
cupboards and storage space. Amazing how much more space you can find when
you get organised and tidy. And ... cut up a few more reflective sheets to
fit into unused windows in the motor home. They help keep some of the heat
out and will work to some degree when I get to winter; will need to
supplement some of the with some polystyrene sheets if I end up somewhere
REAL cold. They also recommend "storm" windows for winter for those you wish
to see out of, which means basically adding a sheet of acrylic inside the
existing window; double glazing of sorts. Hopefully I'll not be anywhere
THAT cold, but that's in the hands of the gods.
