"If you ain't smarter than the thing you're working it ain't going to get fixed."

Forrest Caricofe

I have the internet again?

Google search: About 11,200,000 results (1.55 seconds).

No results found for "If you ain't smarter than the thing you're working it ain't going to 

get fixed."


**I have a large bird feeder larger than the one I bought for Mother when I was helping or

taking care of her in Virginia. I have 2 other ones, but the birds eat from this larger one the

most. I believe the larger bird feeder, located in the southeast corner flower bed, is the 

farthest away from human habitation and that's why the birds feed at that flower bed 

and not so much at the other 2. The wild bird seed bag says that a variety of birds will feed

from the seed mix, but so far I've seen only sparrows, I believe.

I spent most of the time in the house yesterday, preparing 4 picture postcards to send to

people in the country's of Sweden, Malaysia, France and Canada and, of course, my other

daily postings plus publishing a video or two.

In the evening I drove to Orrville to Ace Hardware for some plumber's putty, to 

McDonald's for take out and to Bell Stores gas station for gas for the riding lawn mower. 

About 6:00 PM, I watered the flower beds and the yard where I had sown grass seed.

**I have many videos either uploaded to YouTube and waiting for me to process and or 

videos that I need to encode in Handbrake. 5:36 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. I've just loaded video

2509 and still have 2510 and 2511 for encoding in Handbrake.

I'm still concerned about the subscribe buttons on my story (blog) and YouTube videos and

I'll work on that today.

The weather calls for a high temperature of 81° and mostly sunny skies. I have no driving 

duties today, so I should have time to sow some more grass, plant the bulbs and box of 

annual/perennial mix I purchased from Dollar General, all for $2. I also can plant the 1 

discounted plant I bought at Lowes and if it doesn't rain, I need to water the flower beds

again today.



I started off this morning typing on my HP 15 computer on the top of my dresser where 

I'm standing now. 

And then I suddenly had no internet. I used the Microsoft troubleshooter and it found the 

problem and fixed it. 

And it happened again and it happened again? 9:06 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. And again.

9:10 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. And now the troubleshooter cannot detect a problem?

9:16 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. I just clicked on my password in the Control Panel and under 

internet and network. The troubleshooter said that there are problems, but can't fix them.

I needed to scan the picture postcards that I upload to postcrossing and and 

the HP Printer refused to work. The printer has not been working and now the scanner 

refuses to work. So, I'll take the picture postcards down to Pack and Ship in Orrville today

and have them scanned to my storage device.

But you know, I'm going to fix the WiFi printer both the printer and the scanner because I

always keep trying and never give up.

Did you Mother and/or Father read to you when you were a child the little children's book,

'The Little Engine That Could'?

My oldest living first cousin, Franklin Cline, he's wife is Mary Ann (named after the  

nursery rhyme, Mary, Mary....), I believe, told me once that "you have to be smarter than 

the thing you're working on." He's a lot smarter than me for saying that.

I refuse to accept defeat as Napoleon did at the Battle of Waterloo against the British.

Well, I turned off the modem for about 10 minutes on the button on the back and then 

pushed the button until all 4 lights came on. I clicked on the password like I did before and

it said that some things were change and the problem was fixed. 

9:59 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. And again and I clicked on the password again liked I did before 

and again said the problem is fixed. I tend to believe they're lying. We'll see.

10:02 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. And again. Looks like I'm going to have to turn off and then 

turn on the router and that requires using a wire to turn off the router by poking the wire 

through a small hole to the off and on button. 

I'll post what I have for now. No, I can't do that. I have no internet.

10:30 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. I pushed the button on the front of the router and 3 green lights

came on. "I'll post what I have for now" in case something else happens.


*7:25 AM 6/3/2017 EDT. In Asia, Mattis addresses concerns about North Korea and 

China — and Trump's agenda. Washington Post - ‎1 hour ago‎. By Dan Lamothe, June 3 at 

2:36 AM.

Excerpt from full article:

"SINGAPORE — Defense Secretary Jim Mattis sought Saturday to reassure jittery allies 

in the Pacific about President Trump’s nationalist agenda while delivering a speech that 

cast  North Korea as an “urgent military threat” and cited China for its military actions in 

the South China Sea.

Mattis, speaking here at the Shangri-La Dialogue defense summit, said that the Trump 

administration is encouraged by China’s “renewed commitment” to pressure North Korea 

to stop its nuclear weapons program, but that the United States will not accept China’s 

military buildup in the South China Sea."

**I like Secretary of Defense James "Mad Dog" Mattis. Also Known As: "Chaos", and 

"Warrior Monk."
