Think I'll Go Back To Writing Letters And Reading Books

Well, still working on the Verizon phone data usage problem.  ("Who Are The Gods Of Electronics And How Do I Appease Them?") I've sent my frustration out into the Twitterverse which has prompted some response from their tech support.  Who knows what will come of it, I just want to try all avenues of help and witness their accountability.  It's one thing to call a customer service number, maybe not have the positive result you were hoping for, then writing a letter, or whatever yet still be frustrated and share with your family, friends, the grocery store clerk.  Anyone that will listen to your tale of woe. 

But now, with our lovely social media outlets, you can call out a company that is messing things up and share it with hundreds.  Thousands!  You receive helpful advice from others that have had similar situations as well.  When it comes to products failing I've found sharing on Twitter brings results from the company.  Have you used Twitter to try to resolve a problem?  If so, what happened?

It seems Comcast has brought us to the brink and our new television isn't the lovely "plug & play" ease that it said.   Oh, that's not entirely true.  We did plug it into an outlet, and after clicking a menu button and following other prompts channels did appear, just not our normal channels and it's all kind of crazy.  So all right Comcast.  You win again.  I'll make my appointment and, hopefully, at least one new electrical item will work correctly.

We've thrown another electronic gadget into the mix.  I have a new laptop.  (I worked hard to earn this!)  But my e-mail isn't transferring, and my screen is getting bigger and bigger.  I was so used to my old laptop, that this will take some time to work out the bugs and see how we're are going to get along. 

How are you with technology?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Help Your Loved One to Recover

It can be very difficult to have a loved one who is battling an addiction. It can be hard to know what to do or how to help. Luckily there are many resources, programs and even rehabilitation centers that are specifically designed to not only help you to know what to do but also to help your loved one to recover.

Addiction is a very real problem all over the world, and in the United States alone there are ever 23 million Americans who are struggling with some sort of addiction. Over 64 percent have had to deal with the emotional aspect of having someone close to them who was battling an addiction.

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do. You don't want to make your loved one resent you or to be angry with you because you are trying to get them to stop, but you also can't just stand by and watch. An addiction, no matter what it is to, can consume the person who is addicted and it can also be fat…
