What a hectic day

The whole day was off kilter. First no online Union until almost noon. Coffee, the Union and little web logging starts my day at six o'clock. Went to pay my yard helper at noon and the wallet was empty, so we had to make a fast trip to the bank. Spent an hour trying to figure out how to pay the Comcast bill online, their web site could use some human engineering, or it was one of my dumber days. Hoover, our diabetic dog had a low blood sugar attack and we had to make an emergency trip to the vet. Power was out when we got home, fried power line near the house. Fueled the generator, but the cable was out, no surfing or web logging. When slow ISDN was our internet connection, and the PG&E power was out, we could still get online with the generator. Now with digital cable, the fiber optic amplifiers and distribution boxes require PG&E power. Our higher speed connection only works when the PG&E power is on along the cable route. Best part of the day was going for icecream, while waiting for our internet to be turned on. It is back on now.
