For the second time in as many HP printers, I ad a problem with the printer not printing from the black ink cartridge. I thought it was damaged when a sheet paper got jammed a few days ago. I scoured the interwebs for solutions and found this:
This worked great for my HP 5520. I had to put a damp paper towel in 5-6 times. I also unplugged my printer and left a damp paper towel under the printhead overnight. My prints look so great now. I am thinking this cleaning needs to be done regularly. It saved me having to go buy a printer.
I had to share this with The Daughter after hearing about her day.
I let The Daughter drive on the highway and I lived to tell about it.
Poncho…..for a dog
A few weeks ago
Neighbors: Hey kid would you like to dog sit for us in a few weeks?
Teen: yes, sure. I love dogs.
Teen: Mom, would you walk the dog for me? I have to work at the store.
Me: (in my head: it’s pouring down rain. I did not sign up for this job) Yes sure.
I managed to squeeze in my six month dental appointment today even after I had supposed to be cancelled.

It is the time of year for AP and IB exams at the high school. Proctoring is a pretty easy, but necessary volunteer gig.
