ahhhh…. warm at last… almost

Finally. When you turn on the faucet hot water comes out. The house is still cold, but that’s ok. The towel warmers are getting too hot to touch, so the bathroom downstairs should be back to its sauna state by morning. The dishwasher is churning through the first of what will be many loads as it tries to catch up.

All I have to do now is remember to call the repair people in the morning and tell them in my best French “nevermind.”

    I have been for several weeks trying to get Quicken to talk with two Quicken BillPay accounts, and to exchange data with Bank of America and First Entertainment Credit Union. Somehow it all seems to be so straightforward until you try to make it work. I have spent 109 minutes on helpdesk phones with persons in Uruguay, exchanged countless of emails with persons in Lord-knows-where who give you textbook answers that don’t mention the button might be on the top of the heater, etc etc etc. And all this is in English. I’m about to turn off my Quicken BillPay account out of total frustration. I suppose turning off your house is not much of an option. I cannot imagine trying to cope with these things in French. Such kudos to you both for what you’re doing. Even life of the pioneers crossing the tundra couldn’t match dealing with service people in a foreign language.
