I have been trying for days to upload images, with very little success. We have had no real problems going online. It is just uploading that is an issue. This might be why. 😒 At one point, during the doors test, the upload speed dropped to 0.01mbps. Also, it took a couple of tries to … Continue reading Speed test
First, the cute stuff. My husband passed the furry little bean off to me this morning, while I was at the desktop. Dave promptly curled up in a ball and fell asleep on my chest, making the most interesting nose noises. He then abruptly stood up, clambered up my shoulder, leapt across the chasm to … Continue reading Kitty Cuddles, and technical difficulties
Okay, I'm being only slightly sarcastic with that title... 😉 The cold snap continues, and is supposed to continue for about a week. The above picture was taken a few days ago, on the last milder day, just before we headed into town to get to the pharmacy before the weather got worse. The camera … Continue reading Fun times…
After monitoring my system data usage through April, I thought for sure the Data Vampire had been vanquished. In fact, I didn't even bother resetting the data usage meter when I checked it at the end of the month. Even though there was a sudden spike of almost 25 gigs at the end of the … Continue reading The Data Vampire, returns!
Last day of the month, so I checked out the data usage on my desktop. To recap for new readers, the only internet service we can get out here is satellite, because the alternative was to install a tower at least 60 feet high to be able to get any sort of signal from the … Continue reading Data Vampire, revisited
So about a month and a half ago, I discovered the reason we were screaming through our internet's data plan so quickly. I had a Data Vampire in my own desktop. For some reason, my desktop's system was using over 80 GIGS of data, and I had no way to find out what, specifically, was … Continue reading Data Vampire Slain?
Well, crap. Yesterday, a few more photos were taken, so this morning I uploaded the last of the pictures on the camera. As typical, I removed the old photos from the card completely, so that it would go back into the camera with maximum space on it. As I was transferring the files, I got … Continue reading Noooo!!!
Today was a day when we could really tell that Someone is watching over us! This morning, my husband had an appointment to get a CT scan. For this, we had to go to a small city that is an hour's drive away. The hospital is at the edge of town, though, so we didn't … Continue reading Watching Over Us
This morning, things were quiet at our feeding station. Basically, just a few birds. Then, after I put more feed out, I was able to get this shot... Butterscotch, in the middle of a pile of seeds, watching the birds flying in and out around her. Sadly, those were the last photos our Nikon was … Continue reading Five!
My goodness, our feeding station keeps busy! That makes me so happy. 😀 There were deer in and out before I had a chance to add more feed for the day. So much for my original thought of adding a bucket every few days. Between the deer, birds and squirrels, I'm now adding a bucket … Continue reading Good Morning, Critters
