My gosh, so many technical difficulties. So KERF was super slow today so I decided to chat with BlueHost to see what was up. I was then told that my blog had been “throttled” because it was slowing down the whole server due to some script errors. And that apparently my blog has been slowing down the server for months and they are quite tired of the complaints.
My response was: “So you turn the power off without even sending a bill!?” Gosh, an email would have been nice. Some time for me to fix the problem!? Instead of just shutting me down!? C’mon BlueHost, have some decency.
Good ole ZestyCook deserves a huge shout out for all of his help and support. I swear, I would probably be blogless without him. He and his pal Joe, who is a genius too. At first we thought I’d been hacked. We were going to risk everything and update WordPress to the latest (I’m a bit behind on that) but after some more Joe consulting, Zest decided that I really just need my own server. A $200/month server. Um, that’s not in the budget. At all. Not sure what’s going to happen, but I sure hope the problems are fix at least for the time being. Thank you Zesty!
So this was all going on while my great husband made dinner #3 of the week: a navy bean + squash + cilantro pesto + tomato skillet hash. (Totally morphed from the gratin we had planned tonight)
It was awesome.
Served with a half slice of Great Harvest Blue Cheese Walnut Bread (a local specialty the boys created)
And more Tazo iced tea
After dinner, we headed out to Nolan Kitchen to join our friends for a summer $2 beer special!
I had a Blue Moon, but wish I’d gotten wine. But wine was 4-5x as expensive! I couldn’t justify it.
Matt snapped this photo. I never see myself from the side. I can’t believe this is what I look like!
Diana let me play with her Canon Rebel. OMG, I have to have one. Birthday countdown: 2 months and some days! We took pretty salad photos of Diana’s dinner. Here’s one with my camera. Head over to The Chic Life to see hers!
Coming into the garage tonight I almost stepped on a huge brown roach. Today is not my day 😥
At least the Eye-Fi finally started working again.
