Yesterday could have been a real good day, had not our friendly Bell, the TV/phone/Internet provider screwed up the TV. They’d made a, what they called, «upgrade», overnight last night … something, mainly for they who had fibre-op, I guess. I dreaded turning it on. I knew I had to adjust something about the screen size, which seemed easy enough. When I did it, the TV-guide …the grid where you see all the programming, turned so big so most parts of it were outside the screen. Not only that; we’d also lost all HD and there were channels missing on the list! I could no longer watch CNN in HD. There was no way to avoid it — I had to call them! Talked with four different people before the channel issue was sorted out. I’m not sure if the picture size is really alright, but at least we can see all the columns in the grid. I loathe stuff like this … in fact I ‘prefer’ dealing with computer issues. This TV stuff is too frustrating and I have no control.
This carpet cleaning company’s vans always makes me smile, though…it reminds me of a story my husband told me; His mother had once seen a cat licking a dalmatian … like it was trying to get the spots off it!
Today, we’re off to the glorious state of Maine — we didn’t go the other day as planned.
