I had bought some ricotta cheese a week or so ago and decided it was time to use it. So I prepared a chicken frittata for supper tonight; the ricotta got mixed in with the eggs while being beaten, to give the egg mixture a bit fluffier texture. I also chopped up some green onion and red, green, yellow, and orange peppers and sauteed them with the shredded chicken. Continue reading Fritatta supper. Web site redesign. Changed to normal. Racks on the wall.
The boys are OK. Today they both had their annual checkup session with Dr Brandon Young at Companion Pet Clinic in Phoenix. We have been going to this clinic almost the whole time we have been in the Phoenix area and like them very much. What’s more, both Kerby and Gizmo like them as well. Both boys are in good health. And now their immunizations are up to date. Continue reading Gizmo and Kerby checkup – all OK. Dave eye checkup – OK.
At 9:30 this morning my smartphone alerted me to a dental appointment coming up at 10:00. Slight panic; both Elaine and I had forgotten that was coming up and she had a nail appointment at 9:30! She had the car. I quickly decided to take a taxi and thought of Uber. I had never used Uber, and wasn’t even sure how it worked. But I installed the Uber app on my phone, created an account, and made a request for a pickup in about 8 minutes. The request was made and I soon had a map on my phone showing who was coming, what car he was driving, and the map showed his progress to my location along with a countdown timer to his arrival.

It was a busy and hectic day today! I started off putting on the finishing touches to the Royal Palm newsletter, then took it to UPS for printing around 8:30 this morning. When they brought it up on the screen there we noted a problem with the front page; the masthead is supposed to have a faded-back photo of the entry sign with the words The Palm Press superimposed near the top. However, the photo was not faded, so the name did not show up well. I headed back home and worked on that, finding that I had not used the correct PDF printing routine to produce the file I took to the printer. Once I used the correct driver the front page came out properly. Then back to UPS again. It was a busy morning for them with only one person on duty, so it took a while before the project was a go. I got home around 10:00. Continue reading Hectic day. Newsletter.
