Friday Funnies: Tech Support & Tears!

Hello My Happy People,

This will be a very short blog today. I am so far behind. I have been having some fantastic interviews this week for my Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt podcast and I have more next week. I have updated my graphics for the podcast as well and have seen engagement going up daily and so of COURSE this is the time that my all professional email accounts would choose to go haywire.

It took 4 connections with various tech support entities, a lot of work from my IT architect husband (THANK YOU SWEETIE!), and a guess on my part for the right code I had to plug in to reconnect my domain MX file. No sooner had I hit save when an email came through again. You cannot imagine the level of frustration I have had the these last two weeks trying to fix this issue. Somehow my website was getting tagged as spam by Google. **sigh** Technology can be great and it can be SO frustrating!

Anyway, I don't know about you but I could use a few laughs so let's get to the jokes!!

Have a great weekend, people!
