This and That

November 21st, 2021 at 03:19 am

I went to the refinisher today to take a look at my table to make sure it looks good.  To my surprise, it wasn't fully assembled.  I guess as long as it is by Wednesday, when it's delivered, that's okay.  The guy in charge said he is having problems with labor shortage.  The new finish does look fabulous, a really enormous improvement.

On the way home, I stopped at Walgreens and bought a large package of pads ($18) and two large bags of M&Ms ($8) for making trail mix.  I bought two because the unit price was lower that way. I also stopped at the bank and withdrew the delivery fee in cash ($115) and "bought" two rolls of quarters.  Variables are now at 85%.

I got a notification from Wells Fargo that someone tried to use my credit card, one of those small test charges.  They declined and notified me.  I called them and cancelled the card.  They will be sending out a new one.  I thought I had gotten past the danger from that awful computer breach, but I guess not.  I had already changed my password, but tonight I got to worrying that I should do it again, if someone somehow got access.  Well, I couldn't log in, because my card is cancelled. Duh.

I've been having a problem with my computer crashing after I leave it on without shutting it down.  I've been able to get it going again, by pressing the power button for a LONG time and forcing automatic repair, but I think I'll take it to Best Buy to have them check it out.  I have a service agreement, might as well use it.  I hope it's nothing serious.  It's a pretty new computer.

    I think about everyone is having difficulty finding people to work. I wonder if this will ever end. Glad the table looks fabulous though.

    Sorry to hear that you’re still having problems with the computer breach. Maybe another step as well as password change is to check if you are using the best antivirus software on your computer, and if not, change to something different. Norton and McAfee are both good.

    I took care of the antivirus upgrade immediately. I don't know how this happened; I've done everything I'm supposed to do, but they (the criminals) are much more tech savvy than I am, so I have to be on my toes!
