99-cent Sale

If you’ve been looking for an excuse to purchase/read Ghostly Liaison, how does 99 cents sound? That’s right. The ebook is on sale. I don’t know how long the sale will last, so don’t wait too long. You can find the buy links on the Ghostly Liaison page (tab, up top) or click on the cover over on the side bar.

I voted early. Wow. That was super easy and super nice. No lines! Just wish I didn’t have to go downtown to do it, but at least they validated the parking. But I’m done. My votes are in. Now, if I can only stop the commercials. Ugh.

More baffling discoveries regarding my iPhone calendar. I’ve taken the phone to AT&T, but they don’t know what’s wrong (apparently all my settings are correct). I was at the Apple Store yesterday, but couldn’t wait the hour to see someone (who knew they’d be so busy??). When I got home I decided to do an experiment. I created a test appointment on my laptop calendar (Yahoo).

It went over to my iPhone correctly.

What?????

I made an appointment on my iPhone. It went over to the laptop correctly.

Okay, apparently just my sports games are all screwed up. So… I deleted them all on the laptop calendar. Then I deleted the Yahoo calendar on my iPhone. Next I added all my sports games on the laptop calendar. Then I turned the Yahoo calendar back on.

All the sports game times show up an hour earlier on my iPhone, but my test appointments are correct!!

Ugh!

Guess I’ll be making that trip to the Apple store after all. It’s just doesn’t make sense.

YAWN!! I’ve been staying up way too late watching the Dodgers play in the NLCS. I’ve never EVER been a Cubs fan—blame WGN—so if they happen to win, I’ll be an Indians fan during the World Series. I really hope the Dodgers win, though. I grew up loving that team. I didn’t become a fan of the Reds until 1976 (loved Johnny Bench), long before I ever met my future husband or even thought we’d move to Ohio. Funny how that worked out, huh?

Hey, but at least the Penguins won last night. Yay!

So… Whatcha doing this weekend? I’m meeting some writer friends on Saturday. Should be fun.

Happy Friday!

It almost sounds like the sports calendar is set up in a different time zone or something. Strange.

Busy weekend planned here, which is too bad--I'm tired! Enjoy meeting your writer friends!

Sorry it didn't work.
Always good to see the Penguins win. I would like to see the Cubs go to the world series. About time they bucked the curse.

Hubby has been glued to the computer to read the scores. (We don't have WGN on our channel lineup.)

The Cubs were supposed to win last year according to Back to the Future 2. Ha!

I don't hold out much hope. They always choke at the end.

Jeff - I'm beginning to think that sports calendar is off because of DST and could be on Yahoo's end. Other people seem to be having the same issue, which kind of makes me feel a little better. Now I just have to wait for DST to end and see if that fixes it.

Alex - I can NEVER root for the Cubs. Or the Braves for that matter.

Maria - Right now the NLCS is on FS1 (which is a strange station to be showing them). At least the World Series will be on plain old FOX. And I'm hoping the Cubs choke. CHOKE. CHOKE. CHOKE. :)

Looking forward to seeing my writer friends on Saturday!

I vote early too, by absentee ballot. I love being able to sit at my desk and look up an issue or candidate I'm not familiar with.

Good luck with your sports calendar!

Jennette - I'm always afraid my absentee ballot will get lost. I'm so glad they have early voting, especially since we'll be out of town!
