TGIF. Problems and a Road Less Traveled


Quiet early part of the week.  Some time in the middle - late Wednesday -  the photography computer decided not to start up.  Tried a number of fixes and none of them seemed to solve the problem.  

Big Problem.  Unpacked the laptop, set it up and turned it on. Seemed to work until attempted to use Wi-Fi.  Tried a number of fixes and none of them seemed to solve the problem.

No Problem.  Contacted local computer wiz.  Thursday evening appeared on the scene.  Quickly solved the laptop problem. Simply move a switch - didn't know it existed.

Big Problem. Two hours later the photography computer still did not start up and load windows.  Tried a number of fixes and none of them seemed to solve the problem.  No Idea how to repair it. 

No Problem. While packing up and getting ready to leave, tried it one more time and wonder of wonders, it came alive and started.  The computer Gods live.

Today with some fear, started up the computer and all is good.  No idea how or why but it is up and running.

Meanwhile - before it changes and decides not to work - on to photography.  

For a number of years, Richmond, Indiana was called the City of Roses.  Hills floral was headquartered there and filled several greenhouses with various types of rose plants. When it became cheaper to import product from South America, Hills over a period of a few years, went out of business, closing down local greenhouses and offices.

All of this is leading to the discovery of some signage.  
   
   New Castle, Indiana.

Faded, but still apparent "Rose City Sheet Metal Works" on an alley door.  Not in Richmond but rather in New Castle.

Never know what you will discover by leaving the main path and wandering elsewhere down a road less traveled.
