Eight hours later – finished the upgrade. Upgrade was easy-peasey but interrupted by the snow stopping so went out to pickup our mail (they seem to be plowing more streets in Santa Fe this winter), endless loads of laundry (just got back from a 10-day trip to Tucson AZ), listening to Talk of the Nation (the news is a little too interesting these days), phone calls, making dinner (cauliflower and carrot soup, brown rice). Now we are settling into watch the season finale of Dexter and Californication which we missed when we were away.
I still have to figure out what changed with the new release (other than the wonderful redesign of the Dashboard). And upgrade the Cotswolder blog.
I used to think in Blog posts, but now I think in Tweets. One or two short sentences to summarize any event. Our friend Colleen (SlowTalk moderator) joined us for a few days on the trip and I showed her Twitter – now she is Tweeting. Colleen and Steve were feeding me possible Tweets the whole time.
Since we are chatting, I will add that I realized that the home page for Slow Europe did NOT say that the site was not launched yet (DUH!!), so for anyone who thinks my lame home page and blog are it – you are in for a treat in a few weeks. The programing is done, the database is mostly loaded. I have to write some of those bothersome “words” – and then it will be ready.
Sign up if you want me to email you when we launch. We have great lists of recommended vacation rental agencies and resources for Europe and I can hardly wait to share them.
