There were updates made to my laptop personal computer. The updates took longer than expected. And in the end, there wasn't much changes to my computer. However, the updates made sense to somebody and somebody with technical experience in computers would have an easier time telling me what those updates will bring. But me without much knowledge in computer programming will just have to take Microsoft's word for it. It's either this or using an apple computer and I've been using non-apple computers my whole entire life. The only time I ever used an apple computer was the Apple IIe, but that was thirty-three years ago back in 1983 and the Apple IIe was discontinued in 1993. And those Apple IIe was so advanced back in 1983, but looks so prehistoric today. Anyway, my laptop computer is back to normal now that the updates has been completed. I can use my laptop computer again. Yay.

Well, the second day of Autumn is almost nearly done. Soon it will be the third day of Autumn. Winter 2016 to 2017 hasn't started yet and already predictions are being made. It's predicted that temperatures will be roughly thirty degrees with snow falling. Of course, the evening news will be filled with nightmare stories of blizzards just like there are nightmare stories of wildfires, flash floods and hurricanes during the Summer season. Some folks are never satisfied no matter what the weather is like outside. Right now, it still feels like Summer and I'm not complaining. There are plenty of time for snow to fall on a later date.

It's official. Due to the Autumn Equinox, today is the first day of Autumn. Yeah, I know what you, the Gentle Reader, is thinking. The Gentle Reader is thinking why can't Autumn start on September 1, 2016. Normally, that would make sense with regards to how the calendar is established. However, The Autumn Equinox is often viewed as the official first day of Autumn and the Autumn Equinox never follows the calendar by starting on September 1, 2016. So we follow how the Autumn Equinox arrives and we use that as a cue concerning the change of the seasons. If there's anything going on which can only be done on the Summer 2016 and no other seasons except for that, then it's too late. We can't go backwards. We can only go forward. And going forward, it's the first day of Autumn. It should be fun to see what Autumn 2016 has in store for the Gentle Reader and myself.

I mowed the lawn yesterday. It was a challenge to mow the lawn because the Time Warner cable attachment wire wasn't buried underground yet. So Mom had to hold up the cable wire so that I could mow under it without chopping it to pieces. Thankfully, the Time Warner truck finally arrived to bury the cable wire underground so I could mow the lawn without trouble. Most of the bushes both yesterday and a few days before that. So really, there really wasn't much cleaning chores to do. So today was the chance to kick back and relax for a bit. I don't mind having the chance to relax. It's almost time for me to enjoy lunch. But first, I'll need to walk the pet dogs.

There's a positive sense of accomplishment when a jigsaw puzzle is finally completed. It doesn't look as if the jigsaw puzzle is going to get accomplished much at first. Just getting two puzzle pieces to connect feels like a huge chore. Then more jigsaw puzzle pieces are fitted together. With more jigsaw puzzle pieces connecting, a bigger picture is finally starting to come together. It isn't until the end when the jigsaw puzzle is finally solved and completed that it's finally able to see the big picture. And then there's relief because the ability to see everything is finally possible. Then the process is repeated, but not first. Right now, let's savor the victory of finally figuring out the jigsaw puzzle.

I ate pancakes for dinner before watching Dancing with the Stars on television. And now the television is off as I'm getting ready for bed. I'm checking my e-mails and surfing the Internet for a bit before getting some sleep. It's been a long day. It's also been a rewarding day. Tomorrow should be just as good. Nighttime is very quiet here in the suburbs. Here in the suburbs, night has made the area so quiet, you could almost hear a pin drop. There's not much chaos going on in the suburban neighborhood that I'm living in. It's almost Halloween. Halloween is roughly a month away. It should be fun to see what happens when Halloween returns once again.

What I Really Meant to Say by Cyndi Thomson

Most of the day was filled with rain. And the falling rain unavoidably leads to questions. And those questions isn't easily answered. But answers will need to be found. No delay. No hesitations. Answers must be found now. And it wasn't known if the windows should be open or if the windows should be closed. If the windows were open and it rains, then rain water will enter through the open window. However, if the window were open and it doesn't rain, then it's money saved by not running air conditioning. So the windows were left closed with the air conditioning running.

Air conditioning is great in the Summertime. Electric fans is also great in the Summertime. It's best to wear sunblock before stepping outside. Though I don't get sunburns nearly as easily as I did when I was younger. Then again, I use sunblock a great deal more often. It's September. October is next month. Fifty-two days until the forty-fifth President of the United States is elected. Christmas is roughly three months from now. I'm not ready for the year 2016 to be over with. However, New Years Day isn't going away simply because some folks isn't ready for it. It's night. I'm tired. It's time to get some rest. Today has been a good day. Tomorrow will be even better.

Just switched from AT&T to Time Warner and the process took much longer than expected. Getting Time Warner installed in an apartment isn't the same as getting Time Warner installed in a suburban home. The difference is that the apartment only took an hour and in a suburban home, the process took almost the entire afternoon. I was charged to keep two of the dogs from barking and that involved a much longer than expected dog walking session. I ended up going to the garage where the dogs didn't bark. I guess the garage was more calming than being inside the house. Well, the technology has been installed so it all end happily. So far the Time Warner technology is much smoother and more efficient than the AT&T technology. So far, so good.

It premiered on July 5, 2013 and continued for seven episodes until August 16, 2013. It was a South Korean travel reality television series entitled Grandpas Over Flowers (Hangul: 꽃보다 할배; RR: Ggotboda Halbae). It involved four Stubborn Senior Citizen South Korean Celebrities and an obscure servant visiting mostly Caucasian dominated countries and being baffled like five fishes out of water in unknown areas of the globe in Paris, France; Strasbourg, Germany; Bern, Switzerland and Lucerne, Switzerland. All four seasons of Grandpas Over Flowers starred seventy year old celebrities Lee Soon-jae, Shin Goo, Park Geun-hyung and Baek Il-seob and the obscure forty years and under servant and aspiring actor Lee Seo-jin as the unofficial fifth member of the quartet. The second season ran for five episodes and filmed in Taiwan and broadcast from August 23 to September 20, 2013. The third season ran for eight episodes and filmed in Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Ronda, Madrid and Lisbon, Spain and broadcast from March 7 to May 2, 2014. The fourth season ran for seven episodes and was filmed in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Greece and broadcast between March 27 to May 8, 2015. The popularity of all four seasons made two spin offs entitled Sisters Over Flowers (Set in Eastern Europe and ran for one season maximum and eight episodes maximum between November 29, 2013 to January 17, 2014) and Youth Over Flowers (Set in Peru, Laos, Iceland and Africa, ran for four seasons and twenty-five episodes from August 1, 2014 to April 1, 2016) possible. Further seasons for all three shows are possible from South Korean Total Variety Network aka TVN.
Now there's a third spinoff from Grandpas Over Flowers entitled Better Late Than Never which reverses the premise. Instead of Stubborn Senior Citizen South Korean Celebrities baffled by Caucasian culture, it's Stubborn Senior Citizen United States of America Celebrities baffled by Asian culture. Starring Henry Winkler (Happy Days), William Shatner (Star Trek), Terry Bradshaw (NFL team Pittsburgh Steelers) and George Foreman (Professional boxing champion) and Jeff Dye as the forty years and younger servant and aspiring actor as the unofficial fifth member of the quartet, the first season ran for four episodes and broadcast from August 23, 2016 to current. The first season was filmed in Tokyo, Japan; Kyoto, Japan; Seoul, South Korea (Where the series originated); Hong Kong, China; Phuket, Thailand and Chiang Mai, Thailand. The Gentle Reader and I are still waiting for the second season of Better Late than Never to be approved by NBC.
