Some days. I was on the phone talking someone through a problem they were having using their Internet browser which is always Firefox. Except this time this person insists on using Safari. OK. Carefully I lead them through step-by-step. I explain where on the application window the address window is. I ask if they see it. Yes. Ok, place your cursor in the address pane, the clear white portion of the Address Bar, do you see that. Yes. Now enter ... <the URL> ... two seconds later we are gods only know where. Why? Because the person insists on doing again what has got them into the problem before. They do not put their cursor there. They do not enter the URL. I have no idea what they have done. We start over. Three times we go through this. I waste 45 minutes of my life attempting to help someone and I end up wanting to slap them. I am not a support person; I haven't the patience. At some point I simply give up.

Damnit, Jim, read this!

Getting psyched up to judge obedience at the Buckhorn Valley Kennel Club B/OB Match tomorrow. I hope the facilities are good and everything comes off as planned. I want to provide a positive experience for the competitors. Must remember to bring a clipboard.

I have friends who enjoy tinkering on their cars. In order to go grocery shopping you can often find them needing to rebuild the carburetor or adjusting the gaps on their spark plugs. On a vacation they can be seen alongside the road with a blown transmission.  "I like having this car; I've learned a lot about keeping it going. People with cars that simply work while taking their owners on appointed tasks are weak-minded derps and derpinas."

For myself, I've never regretted buying my iMacs. I keep a PC around just in case I forget how "fun" it can be to keep it going to do the simple things I need to get done.

Yet, some of my best friends are auto mechanics, too.

Excited about upcoming AKC dog obedience trials in Colorado Springs, four trials in two days!  These are indoors in a packed dirt arena which Ronin loves. We found a hotel that is clear of bedbugs, according to the Bedbug Registry website.  Close to a Subway shop, too.

It will be a long fire season, this is only the beginning.
