So proud of Bill. At least one of us is fishing!
We both spent a good deal of yesterday working on the weather station. We finally had success and it was the best feeling, ever!
You know, I tell people that the way I learned about computers is by pushing buttons and being curious. This can wreak havoc, and cause you hours of work, but that work is what teaches you! It may be a backwards way of learning, but I have learned.
Oh, let me tell you the hours of learning I have done! TEE HEE.
It's the most beautiful morning, out there. Let's go play!

Can Not believe this!
I had everything fixed! Everything! I could connect to the ifish server, I had the weather station up and the mod board was pretty much caught up. The only remaining problem on my mind was the kwikfish. Where are the danged kwikfish?
In the afternoon, I lounged on the couch, watching the ODFW commission meeting. Nothing to do! Lalalalala...
I made a nice St. Patty's day dinner. Corned beef and cabbage, of course... and a banana cream pie. (Don't know how that fits in, holiday wise, but it was good!)
I slept (count 'em!) 12 hours! From 8 to 8! Life is good! I woke briefly in the night to note that it was stormy and blustery. It lulled me back to sleep.
I woke up, sat down at my all-fixed computer, and what is this? My weather station... after days of being down, and me worrying and counting the hours till tech support helped me, and finally having it working, yesterday for no more than 10 hours... is not uploading! WHAT?
The error, though, is mine all mine. Nothing tech support can help! It says, "Unable to upload data upload profile because of errors." and then, the errors: "Error in reading image data from the station. Check sensors".
Get me some tissue. I'm going to rain from my eyes, like the winter of 2016/17 in Oregon!
Noooooo! This just can't be!
Now, I'm going to have to call Davis, the weather station people. Good thing they are always nice, but it's so hard to understand how this thing works, and in order for them to talk me through it, I have to be smart! I'm just NOT smart, anymore! Take it from this column. You can tell, right? I'm dumb!
I've got to drink four cups of coffee for this.
I was going to go plunk, today. Now, I will plunk myself down in this computer chair, and perhaps get up on a ladder while Bill holds me there, or I'll hold Bill up there, and we'll do what we have to do with that darn weather station! More and more, we hire people to help us do difficult things, but dang it! This time, I'm getting it done, myself!
Oh! Get this! Night before last, in the midst of "nothing to do", (Perhaps I remember things wrong..) our ADT alarm went off in the most obnoxious way. Ear piercing!! It was so loud, I couldn't get near it! It screamed a siren with such intensity that I had never endured. So loud! Then it would yell, "Police! Police! Alarm! Alarm!" Lol... The dogs were going wild, and Bill was still asleep of all things!
We finally got it to stop with the help of phone support, but the next day, we had a problem. That night, they told us to find the transceiver. It was supposed to be no more than 10 feet away in an electrical outlet. OK. We searched... And searched. Every single dang outlet! Twice or more!
No luck. So, we went back to bed, hoping that it wouldn't happen again. It didn't.
But, the next day, the search resumed. I finally found it! It was (of all places) plugged in, screwed into the outlet in the ceiling of the garage, where the garage door opener is plugged in. Why, of course! Perfect place to put that! AGH.
Anyhow, I'm not convinced all this technology brings less work to us.
I'm not convinced one bit.
I live in a home where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play.
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
Let me tell you. It's not all it's cracked up to be.

Man oh man! That was the longest I have been without writing. Sometimes I get busy and can't write, and that's frustrating, but this time I couldn't write! My connection was broken and had to wait to get it fixed. That was pure living heck! To want to write, but not be able to?
Plus-- The weather station couldn't upload right in the middle of a flood where fishermen and women are watching it. I got so many e mails... "Your weather station isn't working!" So frustrating! But, now... the good people fixed it and we are good to go!
I'm still waiting on pins and needles to hear about the kwikfish. Where are they? Why is it taking so long just to put them together and box them up? I will call again, today and let you know what I hear. Last I heard, they were out of town and would be back, this week.
I'm at the coast, and was yesterday the most beautiful sunshine you ever witnessed? I sprained my ankle, and I'm having troubles getting around, but I sat outside in the sunshine and just soaked it up, fully knowing that it is supposed to rain cats and dogs, today! We only get one day of sunshine? Come on! 2 would be nice! 3 would be lovely, and I could easily take a whole week of it, or more!
I'm so happy to have my ifish connection back! I didn't realize how much it was a part of my daily happiness! LOL.
OK, off to catch up!

In the Spring and summer, light flows in my window that blocks my eyesight. It makes it very difficult to see to work, so I have to hang curtains to block the rays.
There is sunshine coming in my window! It is SO bizarre, but it makes me so, so, sooooo happy and I doubt I will ever block it, again!! I love you, SUNSHINE!
Do you know that we have only had three (Count 'em!) -3 days of sunshine this winter? KATU did a mobile flash last night that said that, and it totally explained my rotten mood! We can't live with only 3 days of sunshine! At least not happily!
Yesterday, after hearing the rain-filled weather forecast the day before, I decided I would just lay low and do nothing.
That didn't happen. I did everything! I think when you plan on doing nothing, it frees up that frustrated "I have so much to do" feeling, so that you are free to actually get things done! That's what happened! I did my taxes! I cleaned house! I took Willie for a long puppy park romp. (And I wasn't going to take him out at all! I went to two stores to get things I needed. (And a couple things I didn't need!)
I bought the neatest clearance candle at Fred Meyer that smells so good!
Oh! There it is, again! SUN! It's so bright! Makes me giggle like when we went to Florida in the middle of winter, and we kept laughing about that weird golden globe in the sky. What was it?! I'm not covering it up with curtains, today! Maybe never again! I need it! It's quite beautiful and it is actually fairly warm outside!
I opened my sliding glass door, out of my bedroom last night, and this odd, warm wind poured in and enveloped me with smells and feelings that seemed like Spring. I could almost smell my Daphne from the front of the house.
The funny thing is that my Daphne began to bloom a month ago, and it has been the most prolonged blooming season! I thought surely the cold and snow would have damaged the blossoms, but they are still growing strong! I picked one to put in water by my sink. Every time I get desperate from all the rain and gloom, I take a deep lung full of it, and it revives me.
I think.... I think.... (and although I thought so, before--- ) This time, for sure-- Spring is on the way!!
You guys!!! WE NEED THIS SUN! Do yourself a favor. You MUST get out there and let it hit your face! All this gloom can cause serious depression, I bet. So, the sun may do you worlds of good!
I've Had these crazy-almost desperate feelings. I've been so nearly tempted to drive to the airport and use my free ticket to fly to California for the day just to feel what sunshine is! This saves me a trip! I know! I'm a goofball! I wouldn't really do it, (I don't think...) but yesterday I was at wits end with this weather!
Today, everything! Everything is better and sunny and wonderful!

A reminder from Jennie!
Do not burn yourself out!
Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast...a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still there. So get out there, and hunt and fish, and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the Grizz, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely mysterious and awesome space.
Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: you will outlive the (bad word edited for this family site!!)."
