12/16/17 This is the
time of the year to correct past ills and upgrade
business services for my home office. New
satellite internet connection will double my data
usage to 20 gigs for about the same cost to what
Dish charged me.
Changing my credit card vender is a must. Was
getting steamrolled into a $199 charge for their
claimed upgrades I had no control over. Will
share this criminal
that has been in the news for ripping off their
customers once I close my account this coming
Monday. This mega bank has had to pay hefty
fines and now I see why. Besides, it's been a
nightmare to get anything close to tech support from
this "too big to fail" outfit.
12/15/17 My satellite
internet connection is going to be pretty sketchy
until this coming Tuesday. Changing from Dish
to Hughes Net Gen 5. Dish charges 60 bucks for
10 gigs. 10 gigs can be burned up amazing fast
once I begin working on, or view video files.
The internet has revolutionized the way business is
conducted and is absolutely necessary in this day
and and age. Cannot imagine doing business
12/14/17 Pushing snow
this morning with my plow truck. There's
around a foot of lake effect snow that has to be
moved. First time in the 2017-2018 winter
season had to plow. 8° last night will keep
the snow fluffy and light. Mr. Winter has
arrived a few days early!
12/13/17 Lost electrical
power yesterday morning around 9am for about 20
minutes. New backup generator came on in 30
seconds. Then, when the power was restored,
the transfer switch shut itself off flawlessly.
So, the 1st time everything worked as it should.
Began editing last year's 8/10/16 part 2 video.
There's three 30 minute segments that must be
condensed into a 15 minute movie. That's a
total of 10 gigs of data to sort thru. There's
no easy way and requires a lot of uninterrupted time
to have a decent end product I can be proud of.
Hope to have this new movie on YouTube next week.
12/12/17 Hard winter has
barreled into Manistee, MI, after a long run of
above average temperatures this fall. High
temps in the teens today with lake effect snow that
can produce several inches when the winds blow
across the Lk. MI and Lk. Superior.
Progress at this time of the year is measured in
bits and pieces. Delays from the holidays
happens to all in the manufacturing business.
Losing business days for shipping is the biggest
holdup. Have several colorants on order
scheduled to arrive before Christmas. We are
in a hurry to restock our meat heads for 2018.
The way it looks, all colors of our meat heads will
be available in January.
Putting some thought into how to sum up my 2017
season that will be shared in the future. Seen
the good, the bad and the ugly going back to March
of this year.
12/11/17 Keep forgetting
to stress an important point about the 2018 Skinny
Minnie aka Alewife SUV combos. Being: it's a
middle of the day producer working long after the
early EZ bite is over. This can be proven by
the time-stamped photos.
