I mentioned in yesterday’s Menu post that life had been pretty rough for a while. Things kept breaking or refused to stay fixed. Then there was that business with an Ebay seller who tried to abscond with our money while not delivering his product.
Apparently, we weren’t the only ones that had been swindled and both Ebay and our credit card company stepped in to make matters right.
The most annoying ongoing situation has been here on this blog. On February 20th, around midday, my comment notifications and then the comments themselves stopped working.
The good people at JetPack have been stellar at helping me out. You guys know I won’t endorse just any old thing, but hand to heart, JetPack has gone above and beyond.
They not only helped me narrow down the culprit that was stopping my comments, but they helped me ask the right questions to my web host so I can get their end fixed. Never had I had such excellent customer service.
If you don’t use JetPack for your WordPress site, I heartily recommend it.
The comments appear to be working now, as are the notifications (sometimes). The only thing not working (regularly) at present is my Contact form. I am getting some emails through the Contact form but not all. If you’d like to help me test it, go to the Contact page at the top menu and give it a go. If it works, I’ll let you know.
And please leave me a comment if for no other reason than because I’ve missed hearing from you guys!
I’m debating whether to do a State of the Homestead report next Monday or wait for mid March. We have some new arrivals coming to the farm, and a few who will be leaving.
Greg is staying, along with his new ride. 🙂 We saw this at a recent Mother Earth News show and instantly saw its possibilities. I’m pretty sure my reason for getting it and his are at opposite ends.
Greg’s promised to get rid of his old ATV and his motorcycle. That should defray the cost of this monster.
It’s a fun ride and quite useful for the farm. The bed can haul all the hay and feed we’ll ever need to move. Plus it has a middle seat, just for Nana, the Wonder Dog.
Yes. We bought a UTV (Utility Task Vehicle) for the dog. Now you’ve heard everything.
Leave me a comment! Have you ever driven an ATV or UTV? Would you let the dog drive?
No husbands were hurt during the buying of this vehicle.
