To celebrate my birthday (50-something),, I finally installed my faster Suddenlink modem with considerable phone bank assistance. Much to my surprise, I got the Internet working but my phone turned off. I’m not mechanical. A service rep stopped by my place, and he got my land line working again.
Meanwhile, I got a “wild hair” and decided to search for publishers who’ve attended South by Southwest (#SXSW) in Austin, Texas. Sure enough, I found Soundfabric, a group headquartered in Prague with branches in Berlin and Toronto. Their motto is “Open Source is Freedom of Speech.” They’re on Twitter and Linked-in too. I sent my first composite chapter of eleven chapter sections published as articles, and they’re still trying to get it on there. Wish me luck.
Meanwhile I thanked close to 50 Facebook friends for wishing me Happy Birthday; a few Linked-in pals said Happy Birthday too–including my only-known cousin.
This day has already been complicated. Mariette Hartley guest starred on The Rockford Files re-run this morning. Jim had no shortage of romantic guest star ladies half his age; no wonder I’m a fan.
