I was neither struck by lightning last night nor did I win any part of the Mega Millions. There were 3 winners, one of them being from Illinois in a little town called Red Bud which is near St Louis. My brother lives in that area of Illinois. Sigh…
Now on to more important things such as what I am going to do with this new day that I have been granted. I should clean, and maybe I will.
I definitely am going to have to do some new television hunting. My Samsung TV will be 5 years old in April. For the last few weeks it has been acting really odd when I turn it on. It clicks numerous times(for several minutes) until it finally turns on. I checked it out on Google and I found that this is a known problem with Samsung. http://www.fixya.com/support/t2671746-samsung_lcd_tv_clicking_wont_turn This just reinforces to me that Murphy has never left me, in fact I think he is madly in love with me.
I called the lone TV repairman here in town and he was well acquainted with the problem. He told me it was a quite common occurrence with many TVs. He said he could fix it, probably for under $200. Now here is the catch. I have to deliver the TV and pick it up when it is finished. The turn around time could be a week or more depending on if he had to order a part. I am not going to go through all of that hassle. I will buy a new TV and I will buy it where it will be delivered and set up and the old one taken away. And that is my rant for the day Auntie. Why do all of the TV manufacturers put the el cheapo capacitors made in China in the TVs?? When in the world are we ever going to be able to buy MANY things made in America instead of just a few. Which leads me to another rant, outsourcing, but I won’t get into that now as that really torques my jaw.
It is nippy out this morning and the temp stands at 42 degrees right now. It is to be in the mid 80s tomorrow and upper 80s on Monday. This changing weather is not good for the flu season which got a really late start this year.
I cook on the weekends and today I am fixing spaghetti with meat sauce for my lunch. I need to close this off so that I can see about getting the sauce started.
I hope you all are having a great day. Stay safe and be happy!!
