Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. I was just thinking, Saint Paddy’s Day is this weekend, Sunday, March 17, and in today’s world my old Irish buttons will probably not work. For example, “Kiss me I am Irish” would be a no-no, and so would “pinch me for luck.” No pinching allowed these days. So to stay with the times, maybe we can use a few of these: “Pinch me and I will punch you,” or going with the new green movement, “I’m green, I’m keen.” Better yet, “I am the real green deal. Embrace me!” Anyway, as you have come to realize, we don’t have a lot of dull moments in the Dogpound. I got in my car the other night after buying some groceries and my radio went blank. I lost all visual information on my touch screen. “Oh great, now what?” For some reason my car thought the radio was being stolen and demanded a PIN number, of course, I had no idea what it was. I tried Googling it without success, so I waited until morning to call my car dealership to see if they could give me some guidance as to how to fix this problem. I called the dealership where I bought the car, which is 90 minutes from where I live, and the best that the female service manager could provide was an invite to come over and they would look under the hood. Forget that! There is a dealership in another town just 30 minutes north of here (Sullivan, Ind.), so I ran up there and pulled into their service bay. The man tried a few things and finally got my radio and touch screen to fire back up, yea! I no longer have to sing out loud in the car for entertainment. Since I cannot carry a tune in a bucket, you can appreciate the fact that I hated the station that was playing.

That is all I have for today. As always, be good, do good, play safe, and remember to never iron your four-leaf clover. Why you ask? Because you do not want to press your luck. LOL
