Welcome To Soggy Fest...

Update:  This morning the forecast looks like the storm will die a lonely, meaningless death in the hill of Mexico and not affect the Keys at all.  Subject to change by tomorrow of course.

The Minimalist Budget: September...

And I thought August was bad.  August was a cakewalk compared to the bullshit I went through in September.  Sure, the numbers are not all that different, but damn.  The expenditures were not the problem.  It was income, or to put it more specifically, a severe lack thereof.  The entire month was one of tension, [...]

Last Friday afternoon, precisely at 5:00pm, Beacon wifi went down again.  There was no lightning strike this time.  It just stopped.  I spent a worthless hour with tech support who could find nothing wrong, and had no viable answers for me.  It remained offline until late Tuesday morning and is now working…so far.  Nobody gave [...]
