Ok, just for fun - because you know we all have our little gripes that in the grand cosmic scheme of things don't really matter. What little annoying thing is troubling you today that no one really cares about - except you. (it's supposed to be a fun thread, not negative by the way - for a little laugh)
Mine is my new flip flops that squeak oddly when I walk. My old pair broke and the new ones are noisy... sigh.
I broke my floor. I am not quite sure how. I am even less sure how to fix it. I can walk around the little hole. It is about the size of a quarter and it is not very deep. It just looks like a hole in a stone floor.
If you have some stone that is a pretty close match you can patch it. If worse comes to worst you can make a repair with a photo, a piece of plastic, and some grout. Fill the hole to the correct height with grout that closely matches your stone, take a photo of your floor and color-correct it for the area of your floor that is damaged, put the photo on top of the grout, and cover with a piece of hard clear plastic. It will be a lot less noticeable until you can get someone in to repair it.
I have bunions and arthritis on both of my feet. My doctor would only do surgery on one foot at a time because he said it wouldn't be right to have me walking around on two hurt feet. Well, now the foot that I had surgery on hurts and so does the other one. So, the reality of it all is I AM walking around on two hurt feet after all. Bummer!
A young adult friend can't get a state ID because she doesn't have a social security card and can't get a social security card because she has no state ID. She also can't get a state ID because she only has one set of proof from column four to prove her residency and that is school records with no school photo ID.
I can sympathize. When I moved to Illinois from Missouri, I had stupidly let my license expire and I didn't have a social security card because my mother still had it and had misplaced it. This was many moons ago and I still remember it, because despite the fact that my expired license had what was clearly my pic on it; I could not use that to get another copy of my SS card - and I needed the SS card to get a new license issued in Illinois since my MO license was expired. This drug on forever until I finally was able to talk my way into getting a copy of my birth certificate which I then used with a student ID and utility bill to get the SS card reissued so I could get my license... what a PITA. I have never let a driver's license expire since that though! lesson learned lol.
I like to repair the soles of my shoes when they are getting tired (and my feet). I used to be able to go to the dime store and get a pack of rubber soles with a little tube of rubber glue (only it was much stronger?), they were everywhere. I can't find them at any store, and have resorted to finding them online, but they are even getting hard to find there. Sincerely, Soleless
I think we live in such a "disposable" society anymore, people rarely try to fix things and just throw them away. I find that kind of sad. It's nice that people want to repair things and too bad you can't find the materials you need to do it easily.
It rained for 3 days, so I didn't check my tomatoes until today. About 50% of my cherry tomatoes that were close to red split open and were eaten by ants. Good news is the ants were well fed! My dog also won't stop licking her butt. Not in a quick normal way, but more like slurping ice cream. Ugh
Ugh. I had a dog that suddenly started doing that, licking herself like her butt had started manufacturing chocolate chunk ice cream rather than poo. The solution was a dog toy called a Kong filled with peanut butter or gooey cheese. Once she got her oral fixation satisfied with the toy, she stopped making such a production out of licking her bum.
Thankfully she seems to like her butt a whole lot less today!!! I think maybe her glands were bothering her. We love our Kongs. That is a good idea. I'll have to remember that next time she starts behaving gross.
Sorry about the tomatoes - we've had crazy stupid amounts of rain so a lot of our tomatoes split too at times, but we've still had a decent year. As for the dog, eww. could she be wormy or something maybe? Not sure what makes them do that. I used to have one that drug his carcass across the floor all the time. ugh.
Dragging their behind on the carpet is a sure sign that they are having a problem with their glands. You need to take them to the vet and he knows how to empty them. (It smells so bad when he does that you can't breathe.)
If your dog has always done this, he must think the carpet is TP.
Paradigm, your pic reminds me that my glasses never stay clean - no matter how careful I am not to touch the lenses, I always see a blur or spots and it drives me insane, so I take them off and end up with a headache due to eyestrain.
If so, that truly sucks, as it shuts out MANY people from being Amazon customers...folks like myself, who have gotten rid of credit cards, and PayPal is the only means we have of shopping online. They are losing customers this way...and they need to have a long talk and negotiation with PP. Because we already had an issue with ID theft a few years back, there is no way in hell I'm putting my debit card out there online!!!!
I looked into that before, and would not 'qualify.' WTH?? It's not a real, actual credit card; it acts as a debit card against your PP balance. So, NO risk to them. But, the application process included a credit check, so I bailed. I know I wouldn't pass that...due to some unfortunate and unavoidable issues in the past with trying to keep a roof over our heads, my credit is in the toilet.
I can't get Filezilla to work with my current webhost and their "help" pages are extremely outdated and not useful. the "support" person I've been talking to doesn't have a clue and this should be a very easy thing for them to handle. It's an error on their end that keeps timing out when I try to connect and I've done everything I can and explained it to them - its' been going on for 3 days. Time to find a new host and transfer a mess of websites to a new host I guess - except I can't get the FTP to work to download the most current version of my sites. Gah!
Sadly my old site is HTML hand coded and wasn't a word press site - so I don't think that I can import it directly into a WordPress theme right? If there was a simple way to do this I'd sure be thrilled . I figured I'd have to customize my Template the way I want and then go through and copy and paste all the content into the new version of the pages and then use the plugin that converts to the .html extensions so that none of my pages lose their original location. ugh. sigh.
You might have to copy/paste your content, but you don't have to do the other thing (html extensions). Set up your linking template and put your link setting so that it shows something like www.mysite.com/title-of-my-page. Copy/paste your information into either pages or posts. Go through and correct links (WordPress has great means of finding relevant content within your site).
Don't be discouraged; I converted one of those sites with 24 pages and 250+ posts in about a week. You can use the broken link checker plugin to detect broken links, and then afterwards deactivate it (it will slow down your site if you leave it running).
I've really gotten the hang of it. I started by redoing one of my smaller websites first in WP with a responsive theme. It's helped my traffic increase by quite a bit too! That kind of makes me maybe a little bit more excited about continuing the monster of a website... almost. lol. Ah, change is never easy.
This is an awesome solution, seeing as I'm creating an animation in oil pastels. I'm going to try one of those clear plastic folder things and tape it to the scanner so its crease at the fold can serve as the stop to line up the frames in the scanner.
I'm drawing a flowering garden starting from a point and expanding outward which I'll animate backwards so it looks like it's a garden warping and sucking into a point.
It is so hot outside today that I am forced to do my daily walk on the treadmill in the air conditioning. Even though I've got both the AC and the ceiling fan on, I'm still getting all sweaty. Yuck. And the little shelf that holds my laptop up on my treadmill console so I can surf and walk at the same time, is made of plastic and causing my my hands to sweat as they rest on it while I type this. Boo hoo!
Also, my pool light is burned out and I've got teenagers coming over to swim tonight.
I had to take like 10 "selfies" today to try to get an acceptable image for my new profile pic... turns out my arms are kind of short, so I had to make my husband take a picture of me so I didn't have that strange "my arms are too short to take a selfie" look in my profile pic.
There's an air show this weekend at the local small-craft airport, which is about a mile from my house... so all weekend long, the only thing we'll be able to hear is RRRRRRRRRR ROOOOOOOOAAARRRRR RRRRRRRRRR ROOOOOOOAAAAAAAAARRRRRR as the planes fly back and forth over our heads.
...on a totally unrelated note, I've had the Dixie Chicks song "Goodbye Earl" stuck in my head all day and I have no idea why.
Well, that depends. If you would like summer to continue, I suggest the heavier blanket, because that will guarantee that it stays warmer longer - at least that's how it works around here in the Midwest. .
Paypal fees can be high. One of my clients decided to pay me through PP rather than by bank transfer and I was charged £40 on their payment of approximately £1000.
I thought you have to register a third-party credit/debit card with PP in order to have a full account with them. I would not take out PP's own card since I only use my account for online purchases/payments from a few clients. Besides, I already have 3 credit cards after Barclaycard decided to replace the Mastercard I previously had from them with an Amex card plus a Visa card. If the amount in PP ever gets a bit too high, I transfer the surplus to my own account.
