Apples and BBQ . . .

First up, a number of our blog readers are having trouble accessing this site while using the Safari browser on iPads, iPhones, and iMacs. This is a known problem, not just with this blog, but many other websites. Some people have trouble even with sites like Facebook and Google.

The problem is with the Safari browser and this link from Apple Support details the problem and a number of possible solutions.

Of course, if you have this problem on this site, you’ll never see this.

So, Never Mind.


On another software note, there is a new wave of email viruses on the loose. The latest appears to be a video email from WhatsApp. It looks like this.


When you click on the play button, it takes you to a website that will infect you. You can get more info here.

Finally, if you get ANY email from anyone, including someone you know, and that email has one of those shortened links like this one –, do not click on it. (BTW this one takes you right back to this site.)

So, let’s be careful out there.


About 1:30 Jan and I walked down the row to meet Ed and Debi Hurlburt. We have some mutual friends, and they read our blog, so we were looking forward to getting together. But our ‘getting to know each other’ visit turned into an all-afternooner and then later, dinner.

We all hit it off immediately and spent the rest of the afternoon talking about anything and everything, and were surprised to find out how much we have in common.

Finally about 4:30 we headed out for Peter’s BBQ a few miles up the road in Ellinger. Jan and I had eaten here years ago, and it was still just as good. Great BBQ and a buffet of sides, including desserts. Really good.


I had hoped to be able to start going through bins, sorting stuff to stay, go, or trash. But between the nasty weather, and making new friends, that didn’t happen.

But there’s always tomorrow.


Thought for the Day:
