The phone rings,
“hello, this is Dee”
“Hi Dee, this is Marmot, I work for [big paying client]. I have a problem with my email”
“Right, ok, what seems to be the problem?”
“I can send email to my colleagues, I can receive email, but I can’t send email externally. I get an error message.”
“Ok, try …”
“Can you come over?”
“hmmmmm… Not until after work [real job]”
“that’s fine… See you then”
Wasn’t part of my plan for the evening actually Still, I love a challenge, and as [big paying client] is my first installation with my new host a few idosyncracies were to be expected.
I did a bit of research, went around to [big paying client]’s place and checked the right boxes thereby solving everyone’s problem, (because Marmot was the only one who had figured out that it wasn’t working… very techno savy…)
I have to say it feels very good to be able to fix ickle problems like that. I was a bit chuffed with myself!
I raced off home with just long enough to stop to buy a can of Big Red and heat it up so I wasn’t singing on an empty stomach at Jonah’s practice.
Actually, does anyone know the song “His Eye is on the Sparrow”? We are singing it at choir and there is a discrepancy regarding the line “When Jesus is my portion” Is this the correct lyric? Or is it “When Jesus is my potion”?
Jonah sings potion and I can’t bring myself to do it. Because he got the lyrics off the web I believe he thinks it must be correct. So I need some external input. I think Jonah also believes that potion makes more sense, not being a church going brother and not ever having heard Jesus referred to being one’s portion, which, on balance sounds weird but seems to sound religious, at least through my early experience as a Methodist child.
