Cary NCWorks office visit stalled Enabled file sharing from \\consuelo to \\dora Investments review Determined the IRA bank with the account-closure fee also doesn't play well with the credit union for the automated bank account linking process, necessitating mailing. No middle ground, no emailing completed forms. Shopped some more pillow suppliers. There's a new result sifting to the top of these searches, which I won't enable by repeating here but it's similar to "feather lo-cal bedding" and it's... (...more)

I was never thrilled with the temporary moniker of \\codger for the newer (Dell Precision M4800 Win10) laptop, so yesterday I renamed it \\consuelo. With the dust mostly settled from moving, my next "me" projects are finishing transcription of old journals, scanning and cataloguing the growing pile of accessory documentation to keep the "docs box" under control. Called St. Paul's / Cary and spoke to Melanie to get an idea of attendance at their Sunday services: ~30 retirees at the 7:30a old-school (Rite... (...more)

Yes, of course I have. I have had precious little of that in the past 3 weeks or more. I am overdue and more than ready for a solid day between breakfast and dinner with zero external "honey-do's".

Raleigh is both the state capital and the county seat. Awoke before dawn to accompany Miss on her mission there. CFA for breakfast, Flying Burrito for lunch. 2 ReStores, a Goodwill, National Pawn, a couple little indie thrifts, another ReStore, and mailed out newsletters to fam at the Apex post office. Came home with a desk chair to offset the one Miss has appropriated from its intended spot, a pint of white paint, a 90W bulb to tone down from the 150W in the DR, a few cookbooks (GH, Joy of Cooking and Sou...
