An Afternoon Of Study

It’s been almost 10 years … 10 years? Yep, 10 years already, since I last worked behind the scenes of a website inside a control panel. It could be long tedious work for those that were not ‘geeks’ or ‘experts’ …. like me.

So today with the hounds sleeping their normal hours, the temps colder than I prefer, the dog food bought, the FJ filled with some gas and a fresh bag of coffee … it was time to refresh how to set up websites hosted by someone other than Blogger or WordPress.

I’m still not finished, but making progress and actually remembering more than I thought I would.

The hounds want to go “.com”

Today still included the periodic trips outside. It was clear blue skies and sunny … still the hounds didn’t go far nor wanted to.

After some consideration I decided I was not in the ‘teacher mode’ this morning with Stella and was willing to take the chance with her shut in the bedroom with Sadie while I made a short trip to the ‘big city’ … just downtown.

She passed in flying colors, just like she use to and was thrilled when I was walking in with a 40# bag of dog food. She thought it was all hers.

The feedback seems to be very positive about the hounds each having their own blogs. Ownership of the photos are still in negotiations. Sadie, Stella and Heidi are unwilling to budge in what they are offering for exchange.

I think tonight is going to be watching a movie from my collection unless I find a movie on tv … doubtful. I pay Directv for more ~250 channels and rarely watch more than 7-8 of them.

All is good though, with a couple of bags of M&M’s with peanuts, Keebler’s Pecan Shortbread cookies and some ice cold milk.

It’s a pretty quiet night here in the ‘tropics’ of Southern Indiana.


  1. Isn't it funny how many channels are out there anymore? We have the detested Comcast Cable, but like you, find very few of the channels that offer anything we really want to watch. I enjoy sitting with the sound off and fast forward through some of the things I've recorded. Watching the commercials that way is pretty interesting. You can learn a lot from the body language, as well as the editing that's done. I'm weird, I know.

    1. A few months ago I checked out that offer by DishNetwork, the $49 locked in for 2 years. The problem was and always has been with me, everyone puts their sports channels on different tiers. So to get all of the channels I need to buy for my 'sports addiction' I was going to end up paying what I pay DirecTv. So much for that $49 per month / 2 year good deal. LOL
