Second iPod gone

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:31 am

I sent off my second iPod to get it repaired. Its battery was running down overnight unless I kept it plugged into the USB recharger. Also it displayed the AC charger icon on the screen unless I was working with the menus. The strange behavior of random click wheel movement without touching it seems to have stopped – or maybe it just dried out. Nevertheless I sent them a movie of that behavior, but I doubt that they’ll even look at it.

Update: The new one (this’ll be number three) is on its way from Hong Kong.

So much to learn

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:31 am

The new job has been keeping me busy. Many times at the end of my old job the day would drag on. Now I’m much busier and trying to come on-board. There is so so much to learn. Each day I feel I’m understanding more, but I’ve still got so much more to learn.

My sweetie’s still gone

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:00 pm

I’m all by myself. Each day as I’m leaving work I phone my sweetheart to find out how her day has has been. We talk as I’m driving home and it feels like she’s sitting right beside me. It won’t be much longer. She’ll be home this weekend. It’s been the longest that we’ve been apart EVAR!

My cousin

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:12 am

I traveled this weekend to visit my cousin Tony and his wife Shirley in Houston. He is my father’s brother’s son. He is also my age among my five cousins on that side of the family. When we were growing up our families would get together about twice a year. Typically once during the summer at his family’s cottage at Crystal Beach in Canada and once at Christmas typically at my family’s home in Tonawanda, New York. We grew up in very different households, and at that time I felt that we were quite different. It’s been years and years since we’ve seen each other. What was amazing was listening to him talk reminded me of his dad, my uncle. It was fun and we talked and talked the whole weekend. I learned also that we are indeed more alike that we are different. Neat!
