I have not written about the change in Alex’s MOS. He was dropped from intelligence training and put in flight equipment support. He had to learn to rig parachutes and fix all the survival gear on planes. He does not like his job much and intends to go back to intelligence training as soon as he can.
Alex is a Lance Corporal now. He hopes to advance rapidly from now forward. He has talked of going back to Parris Island as a drill instructor, but does not know if he will meet the physical requirements.
I am hoping Alex will decide to go to officers training. I would love to see him do it.
Today is Mom’s seventy-eighth birthday. She got up before I did at 7:00am and was already gone for the day. I hope she has a wonderful day.
I have to take my Nikon D50 in for maintenance. It is working fine and everything, but my extended warranty runs out in February and I want to make sure it is in good shape.
My all-in-one no longer works as a fax machine. I broke it around Christmas last year and let the warranty run out before I realized it was broken. I called HP, no joke, two days after the warranty ran out and they would not fix my all-in-one. It was terrible. The scanner, printer, copier functions still work fine. I just cannot send a fax, so I guess it is okay. I do not have the money for a new one.
I worked for hours on the blog yesterday. The blog was not showing up on the opening page. I finally found that by using a template I could make the blog appear. I did that and moved some modules around. I am not really pleased with the theme so I may be changing that a bit. I cleared the links that no longer went to blogs and did some general housekeeping. I hope I have made some improvements.
I decided yesterday that I did not like using Live Writer. I will be using OneNote and the regular blog posting mechanism to do my blogs.
