Good morning everybody. Well, yesterday certainly was a different sort of day. First it started with the wicked phone call telling me that my computer had been hacked (most likely a bit of nonsense). After posting a very short post, I then got busy with my wrapping and packing. After lunch, I started backing up the files on my laptop. Would you believe, this took until 8 p.m. last night to finish?
I did contact my phone company (Comcast) and explained the problem phone call. I also told them about all the strange phone calls that I get from all over the country. I answer the phone and no one is there so I hang up.
The Comcast representative proceeded to tell me that because I have not installed their home security system, he would transfer me to someone who would make an appointment for me to sit down with someone from the company who would help me choose a security system for my house. ??????????? What exactly does this have to do with the strange phone calls??????
Next, they switched me to a person who would explain call screening and help me to get it set up. Basically, she told me to dial a certain number, then follow the prompts. Wow!! I'm wondering why the previous person could not read that same line to me. The bottom line is that they do not help you the customer. You activate this process, and then whenever you get a call that you don't want to be able to call you, you type in the number and press a button. Whoop de do!!!
Folks, as soon as I can come up with a better way of getting internet and favorite TV stations delivered to my home, Comcast will be a thing of the past. They are expensive, and not really "customer friendly."
On a bright note, Joe and Pogo and I made another trip to the Post Office yesterday afternoon with a second load of boxes and packages. Unfortunately for me, I keep coming across something that I missed getting into a box or package. Oh well, I do my best, and the left overs will go back into the gift draw for next year.
Today, I think Pogo and I will go out to do a couple of errands. I still need a couple of small things to finish off my last few packages. It's going to be warm outside, so it's a good day to get out for a bit. Actually, I can shut off the heat for the next few days (during the day).
I dug into my photo archives for a couple of birdie shots that I took while I was still working. I love cardinals. Their colors are so beautiful. See if you agree.
That's about all the excitement around here. In the evening, I've been working on my crochet projects. A pink baby blanket. a couple of neck warmers and the baby cocoon. The little Christmas tree is almost up. Just a couple more things to move, then the decorations will be brought out and put on the tree.
Well, that's all the news for today. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
