I haven't been able to open two of my garage doors with any of my three openers. I changed the batteries, I cleaned the little light thing at the bottom, I did everything I could think of. Finally I ordered not one, but TWO new door openers.
Then came the extremely difficult task of programming them to MY doors. This is NOT my garage by the way. It's WAY too clean and too white. Anyway, I climbed in the back of my truck and followed my YouTube directions to the tee. Push the learn button ...... push the remote button. The light flashes and VOILA! the door opens. YAY!!!
I did that with each door opener, matching up the remote buttons and WE HAVE LIFTOFF!! My doors open open open!! No wonder those garage door repairmen get the big bucks!!
On to my next big project. Return the bag-o-lettuce to Walmart. I ordered this salad on the 5th. I opened it on the 6th.
This is what it looked like. Honestly, if "I" had read the package label and saw that this romaine came from Salinas where ebola, or zika or some other nasty disease on lettuce comes from, I would definitely NOT have picked up this bag. The record for Salinas lettuce at this point is pretty much in the toilet. Oh wait .... e-coli! I think that's what the last one was. To be honest, I'll probably save the fuel and dig through the bag for the good pieces.
Obviously Amazon and Walmart are making a killing during this time. Everyone is ordering everything from them, taxing their facilities. I ordered three things that were to come all at once. Instead, each one has come individually packaged, days apart. No big deal, there was nothing I needed immediately anyway.
I was a little concerned when I saw THIS box, so I took pictures just in case, not really having any idea what might lie crushed within. Luckily it was just a new backpack to haul around my camera. My other one died a difficult and painful death.
Can you find me in this image? Pressure Luck cookbook author Jeff ran a contest for his brand spanking new IntantPot recipe book, hot off the presses. I pre-ordered one since I liked most everything he cooked. Unfortunately, I did not win the grand prize ... what else but a wooden cookbook holder. So sad. Maybe next time. Our consolation prize was a huge picture he posted of every entry. It was a nice diversion.
I'm happy to say all the restaurants and businesses in Tombstone are now open for your dining pleasure. I'm so happy to see them back at it and hope the tourists head on out to enjoy some sunshine. Yeah it's a little hot at 100+, but they have a nice tree-shaded park and lots of seating along the street.
Businesses around here are closing down completely, as in not ever opening up again. I imagine there's going to be only Applebees left in my part of the country for dining in. Quilt stores are also closing right and left. Sadly, that craft is going to be a thing of the past before long. Sniff sniff!!
Good luck if you're in Oregon because it now looks like they are going to stay shut down until all of this is completely over, like maybe some time in October. By then they won't have much left to govern since most of their businesses rely on tourism. Although Washington was with them for a time (we're in this together to the end) they have now decided to branch out leaving Oregon to their own devices.
I can't wait to see the results of this five years down the road. One more interesting tidbit. Governor Newsom of California apparently did NOT win Orange County in his election. He has authorized every other County to begin opening up, but refuses to let Orange County open anything, not even the beaches.
Come on Newsom ..... OPEN OPEN OPEN !!!!!!
