A Lost Day

"Okay lady, step away from the computer!!"

I think the DirecWay system was telling me something yesterday when it suddenly went offline right before dinner. Up to that point my rear end had been glued to the chair in front of the computer while I explored the webpage creating software for my new website and worked on creating/revising/deleting my "Welcome" and "About Us" pages. Nothing like jumping right in without a plan and without reading instructions to cause you to do things three and four times before you get it right. So I've decided to sit back, take a deep breath and come up with a basic outline of what I want on the site and how to get it there. Fortunately, weekends are our stay-at-home-and-avoid-the working-folks-who-have-to-get-everything-done-in-two-days crowd so I can play around guilt free.

We did try out a new toy yesterday that looks like it will work out well; the Mr. Clean Auto Dry car shampooer. The unit attaches to your garden hose, has a reservoir for their special soap (of course) and a special filter that ionizes the rinse water for a sheeting action that avoids water spotting on the final rinse. Of course, with the size of the rig and our truck, we used the whole bottle of shampoo but the rinsing action did indeed leave the chrome on the truck and the fiberglass sidewalls of the rig spot-free so it works as advertised and is much less messy than using the big bucket of soapy water. So we'll put our stamp of approval on this one. Too bad they can't come up with something similar to put on the shower head in the shower stall for rinsing down the glass door and fiberglass walls there!

Note: Blogger spell check doesn't like fiberglass. It wants to replace it with Fiberglas which must be a brand name like "Kleenex". Merriam-Webster online says I'm right, so nyah-nyah spell check.

I've received a couple of e-mails with restaurant recommendations for the new website. Thanks Norman and Bill! I'm working on it! Buffalo steaks???
