So…we started having internet issues last Friday and I didn’t want to deal with it. Every time I call our provider I get a massive runaround. Last time I was told that both my brand new computers had massive viruses. Unlikely…it took a over a week to get our provider to admit there was a problem and finally address it and resolve it.
For nine months everything was fine until now.
Now here’s the interesting part — Wizard called yesterday (Sunday!) and got help. The whole call was maybe a half hour, they immediately spotted a problem in our line, did some internal switching and agreed to send us a new, upgraded modem. I was shocked and pleased. Serisouly happy with Verizon AND Wizard. I was thrilled that I didn’t have to call, and that Verizon must have improved their customer service.
Except there’s a little voice in my head saying, “Hey Jen, maybe it’s because Wizard is a man???? Does the world still treat men with more respect than women?”
Never mind, there’s no point in thinking like that. We should have the new modem Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest and the problem with be solved.
Otherwise, the weekend was good but sooo busy. We got to see Bailey yesterday! I didn’t take any pictures but he’s coming to stay with us in a couple weeks and I’ll take pics then. We also celebrated middle son’s girl friends birthday with Kahlua Chocolate Pound Cake — I put the recipe below for anyone interested.
This week I am working! I’m anxious to tackle this first set of revisions on CAGED MAGIC. And I’m really hoping Wizard’s foot heals. Dang that minor little procedure has turned into a major annoyance for him.
How was your weekend?
Kahlua Chocolate Pound Cake:
1 box chocolate cake mix (I use Duncan Hines Devil’s food)
1 – 16-ounce container sour cream
1/3 cup Kahlua
1/3 cup oil
1 6-to-12 ounce package chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and prepare a Bundt pan. (I spray mine with baking spray that contains flour),
Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl EXCEPT the chocolate chips, and mix (I use a hand mixer) until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour/spread into prepared pan. Batter will be thick. Then bake for 50 to 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool
For topping, you can dust with powdered sugar, or what I do is melt some chocolate frosting and pour it over the top, and sprinkle with chocolate chips and let it set. I’ve also made a ganache to pour over the top.
