Wonderful Wednesday Weather & Wanderings!

Last Update: May 18, 2022

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

After diving right into the normal Wealthy Affiliate Community run-through, which Kitty attended,


I shifted focus and wrote a post about last night's exciting developments after I posted yesterday. If you missed it, you can check it out here:

After that, I have been back within the Wealthy Affiliate Community while at the same time, listening to World news and events!


By this time, Kitty was back eating again!

The Blog Dogs, of course, also got fed too!

I then shifted focus to finishing up another post on my book promotion website, which over the last several days, has been the primary focus of my daily Wealthy Affiliate research!

I hope to get that one completed and one other done by the end of today!

I also had an unexpected experience with paying my credit card bill. This was an account that I have had for about 26 years, but over the last few months a new bank took them over, and it has been a nightmare to pay that card ever since. (I think the US Federal Government runs that bank because I have never experienced such a CLUSTERF%&K in paying a credit card in my LIFE!)

Now, with 3.5 years shaved off my life, I finally got that part situated, but they also have assigned me a completely new card number, which caused further difficulties because my cell phone number is an auto-withdraw on that account. With the account number now changed, I had to log-in and change the card on file.

Of course, I could not log-in to my cellphone account, so I had to first find a phone number to contact them with, and then do everything verbally. I HOPE that the change took effect because this number is my business' life blood.

Without it, my business will really tank, not to mention, my mode of communication! We tend to live or die by technology, as I am sure everyone here is quite aware of!

Whew! With that mess finally over--at least, for the moment. I went back into the Wealthy Affiliate Community to decompress!

Soon, I'll be getting on the motorcycle and running a couple of errands!

I already have it out of the garage!

I then had a barrage of phone calls from Kevin, Ron, and finally my mom. I just got off the phone from all of them, and now it is time to ride, go pick up another check, and then go to the bank, before ending up at the locksmith shop house to do a few more tasks there too!


As I was walking out to the back to get on the motorcycle, I happened to catch a nice image of a Robin!

The rest of the evening will be spent relaxing after the hectic phone day that I have had!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS HAD A VERY PRODUCTIVE AND SUCCESSFUL WEDNESDAY HUMP DAY! MINE HAS BEEN--INTERESTING--IS HOW I WILL PHRASE IT. NOW IT IS ON TO ANOTHER FRISATSU!

Hi Jeff,

I'm sorry about the awful time you had just trying to pay your card debt. That part should be easy. This bank sounds really dumb! Maybe you should transfer the balance to a different card with a better bank?

I hope that is sorted out for good!

have a great evening,
Barbara

Thanks, Barbara! It is incredulous confusion! Believe it or not, it is Marcus by Goldman Sachs! This must be their first venture into CC servicing!😫🙄

I might have to do just that. I've had that card for almost 27 years, and have never had this kind of nightmare over the last four months! Capital One was always very efficient and fast!

I hope it is sorted out too, but we shall see.

I trust that you had an excellent evening too, my friend!

That CC situation sounds like a massive headache, Jeff! Anytime the govt is involved, it's always an ineffective mess. Hopefully everything gets worked out with your number and account! Sounds like things are rolling along nicely with your book promotion site. What types of things do you write about...looks like it was another great day for some riding. Hope you have a great evening.

Yes, indeed it is, Susan! I wouldn't wish this nightmare on anyone!

I am happy with how the book site is moving forward! No complaints there, so far!

I got some rises in, and beer wit good friends too! You can't beat that!

I hope you have had an enjoyable evening, my friend1

Catherine Austin Fitts says to pull your money out of the larger banks that are using intere$t from your loans and transactions to enslave you! And she is a super money expert.
the FED is Not Federal, it's privately owned, it's Not a Bank as it holds no money, and it, therefore, has No Reserve, Just print Some More Debt Notes and charge the Ameri-cattle interest for it, and their children's children.
Better to use a State Bank or a Credit Union.

I'm with C. A. F. don't help these Evil Khazarian Mafia Bankers to use you, hurt you.
Catherine also promotes Cash Fridays, or pick your day and do it every week. why? Because cash transactions are not trackable.
Use it to your benefit.

I'll manage one way or another, Suzay! At the end of the day, I have GUNS!

One day at a time is my mantra, and the good Lord will show me the way through one way or another!

I will trust in Him and do the best that I can!

I hope you are well, my friend!

One is enough, Suzay! I have around 100, but I can only use one at a time!

The robin was a sign of good luck!

I had the same issue recently with a card change. Was yours Capitol One? One of my Capitol One cards changed to Marcus. Now I find out my autopayment didn't go through because it's a different bank! Oy Veh!

And customer Service? Yup, just like it was in the service, hurry up and wait!

The system tries to get us down, but it won't work! We will thrive to spite them, right?

I'm happy to hear you got a ride in to clear out the negative energy!

Let's go thrive!

I sure hope so, Al, because I can use all the luck that I can get!

YES! AL! That is EXACTLY THE BANK! Worst Credit card changeover I have EVER seen and experienced! 😳

Yes, you nailed it on the head, my friend! Hurry up and WAIT is right!!!!!!!

I WILL thrive to spite them, you bet!

I gotnot only a ride in, but when I got back home later, I rode back out to join my friends Tommy and Frank for free beer! It was excellent!

Keep thriving, my friend!

I hope you got everything fixed properly with your credit card and cell phone. Customer service seems to be lacking in so many places nowadays.

There was a Robin with a worm hanging out of it's mouth sitting outside my window first thing this morning. I would have loved to have gotten a picture, but no such luck. That is a pretty picture you captured. 🙂

Severely lacking, Cynthia!

I get lucky every now and then with Robins, but birds, in general, are hard to capture!

I know that. I wrote an article about Blue Jays a while back and it took forever to get any kind of decent picture. I only got one, the rest came from free images. 🤪

You are so right about that, Cynthia! We are lucky when we can catch a bird image, my friend!
