I logged in to my Verizon acct today, discovered that the bill was due 3 days ago, went to the "chat box" and asked if they would kindly waive the late fee, which they did, and then I paid the bill. Nice person, whoever they were, that I chatted with.

Good news---I'll be able to pay my property tax on time, saving the $100 late interest fee :D
Bad news-----CheapoAir is charging me an extra $200+ to change a flight :twisted:

I'm hungry for rabbit. Wild rabbit, sauteed and then simmered in gravy, and served over a pile of steamed white rice. Mid-winter is the time for oysters, and rabbit.

Actual, honest to goodness transcript of some email messages I was copied on yesterday.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Francesco,

The screener de-blinding balls on the screen seemed to have a sticky residue all over them. The customer was concerned the dry powder would stick to the balls due to the residue making them difficult to clean. Is this normal for the balls to have a sticky residue on them? Can they come cleaned?

Thank you,
Tyler
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tyler,

I understand the concern. The residual sticky layer is a protective for the balls, so it is normal to have it when they are new.
Of course the balls can be cleaned using any liquid cleanser / detergent suitable for the application.
I will ask to my colleagues of production dept to clean them before to dispatch the machines.
I kindly ask you to advice the customer that the capacity achievable from the machine without balls is lower, therefore if there is the chance, please clean the balls and install them on the machine.

I hope that what above is clear, in the mean time I remain at your disposal.

Best Regards
Francesco

Back when I was an 18 year old redneck I had a black t shirt with a picture of Bocephus on it. Of coarse I ripped sleeves off.

I just goggled 'Bocephus' to see if I was spelling it correctly and found the same 'vintage' shirt (with sleeves though) listed for $120 at some place called Poshmark. Evidently 'Posh' doesn't mean what I thought it means. Another Hank Jr is listed for $165 on Etsy.

Snow Day!
School’s closed!

(Even if faculty might have made it up the hill to campus, I bet half the kids would be absent - somehow managing to make it up to ski area.)

Heavy, very wet snow.

More coming today, then a bit of a break and a bigger storm Thursday night.
Even though our roof is built for a hefty load it’s time to consider shoveling it.

Avalanche danger is high - and we have avalanche paths on both sides of our property. The house sits between them.

Finally, a normal Colorado winter again.

This came across us yesterday and I heard also an Albuquerque low was happening-- classic storm path for a heavy wet snowfall.

It looks like school will be open tomorrow.

I hear the skiing at our local ski area is spectacular, and I am wondering how many students will suddenly come down with a deathly illness tomorrow. I may be the only one who shows up for class. (I know what I’d do if I were a student.)
