What a pain in the neck. I mean this literally. Somehow during sleeping Friday night, I pulled something in my neck. It's OK when I sit, but it hurts to lie down. I can sit in brief spurts. Heat and pain relievers are not helping.
My printer has a paper jam. It's a Brother MFC-240C. I bought it at Staples last fall. The problem is that, apparently, whatever is jammed is too small to see, let alone reach. Staples told me to call Brother. After the Brother technician went through all the steps that I had already tried, she had me get the error code. #51 - ah, area 51 - no wonder it's a problem. Then she referred me to a local repair shop, which DOESN'T ANSWER ITS PHONE. Meh.
I've been having trouble with Firefox. About once every other day, it freezes up and I have to CTRL/ALT/DEL my way out. Then I get this sheepish message:
Well, this is embarrassing.
Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened web page.
You can try:
* Removing one or more tabs that you think may be causing the problem
* Starting an entirely new browsing session
Well, I think I will start a new browsing session. whether it will be in Firefox is another issue entirely.
Somehow, our household has two different CVS codes so the coupons earned on one card are not transferable to the other, I discovered yestersday. I swear I had addressed this question months ago.
Our intern-turned-temp-librarian Amy left my office's employ Friday. She really helped keep our turnarounf=-d time down. And I like her personally as well.
The good thing about feeling lousy is that it gave me an opportunity to see some TV. Watched some of the EMK funeral.I was re-reading his 1972 book In Critical Condition. On pp. 74-75: "guarantee comprehensive health insurance to all Americans and to assure that health care is available at a cost any American can afford." pp. 220-221: "We can no longer afford the health insurance industry in America...the insurance industry still could not bring about change in the health care system to control costs, improve quality, and offer health care services in a way most acceptable to y=the people. The industry would remain a moneychanger taking a percentage of our dollars for a dubious service."
I also finally watched the last prime episode of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire that aired last Sunday. If you get a chance to watch it on abc.com, I recommend it. JEOPARDY! champion Pam Mueller was in the audience as her significant other, also a JEOPARDY! winner, played - don't want to reveal name in case you watch. Whether or not you view it, find her S.O.'s J bio off her page, then read the blog post that explains the motivation.
I may have to work on this: ever since I learned that Amazing Grace can be sung to The House of the Rising Sun, I've been singing it around the house. (AG can also be sung to The Lion Sleeps Tonight, but it lacks the proper pathos.
