Patience IS a Virtue...

Yes, I KNOW that patience is a virtue (Piers Plowman - 1377) -- and I'm really trying hard to be patient right now...

Our festival website is currently DOWN. Our wonderful host EasyStreet is having Server issues, I'm afraid. They're investigating the cause -- and working on it as I type this.

Meanwhile, I can't FTP. I can't even LOOK at any of the pages. I'm in the middle of doing what's called our Sponsored Exhibits for the festival website -- which is one of the most difficult pages I code each year. I was making some serious PROGRESS, and then the website goes down. (sigh)

The entertaining thing?

I phoned Morgan (at the office) getting ready to ask her to try the site, and she tells me she just emailed me (I hadn't gotten the email yet) to tell me the site was down for her and Hailey -- and they'd had a phone call about it from a website visitor!

Well, Marilyn said it's probably a SIGN for me. I'm now going to take a break. Maybe have lunch and put my foot up (and maybe even have a short nap). I'll come back at all of it refreshed, anyway. (But she doesn't like the site being down, considering we're getting a TON more hits this year than we did last year!!!)

Anyway, once we're back up, I'll get right back in and work on it!

Tomorrow is our Spring Board Meeting -- so I probably need to help Marilyn with that this afternoon. And I'm sure we'll both be working on it until the wee hours tonight -- SURPRISE! (How many times have we done exactly that with PowerPoint presentations???)

The weather here in Portland is FREAKY today! First, it's COLD. I keep fighting chills and trying NOT to get sick. (I think this sore foot is ENOUGH to deal with right now.) You'd think it was winter here, going by the temperature alone. (Although trees are greening, flowers are in bloom and it's very PRETTY wherever you look.) We've had WIND, pouring rain and sun breaks. And more of the same. And the heat is on in here and I'm dressed warmly, believe me.

Break time! (Back to WORK soon!)
