For your own safety.


These may not be earth-shattering “Good Things To Know,” but if you live around here, they might come in handy:

  1. When hanging out in this house and attempting to do anything on the internet, PLEASE: FOR YOUR OWN PEACE OF MIND, PUT A POST-IT ON THE MICROWAVE WARNING OTHER MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD NOT TO USE IT. It is an utter mystery why our microwave makes our router shut off. But you should hear the cussing when someone’s trying to complete a form, pay a bill, or undertake research and they’re suddenly cut off by some fool warming up a piece of banana bread.
  2. If you happen to be driving down the six-lane road on which Holy Cross Lutheran Church is located on a Sunday morning, innocently trying to get to work at 7:45, and the person in front of you is driving at 30 mph – completely ignoring the posted 45 mph speed limit – do not, repeat DO NOT race around them. The likelihood of them being oldsters on their way to the 8:00, traditional service is 100%. You will have to hide from them when they pull into the parking lot one full minute behind you. Every. Damn. Time.

Thank you. That is all.

  1. Oh, and I laughed at having to hide from the oldsters at church. This does seem like the sort of situation you might learn to avoid after the first 30 or 40 times. 🙂

  2. Evidently microwaves shutting off routers really is a thing. Your post made me google it, since our router cuts out a lot too. Apparently a microwave operates in the same general wavelength as a 2.4 GHz router. Tweaking router settings might help (see http://www.howtogeek.com/171869/why-does-running-my-microwave-kill-my-wi-fi-connectivity/ for more info). Now I’m going to have to see if that’s what’s been taking out my router. So thank you for mentioning the connection!
