lj trouble

I cannot get into lj on my new laptop. I went to sign in and it said that my ip address was 'temporarily banned.' Has this ever happened to any of you? Luckily I was still signed in here-- on the desktop. Son says it it is probably not forever and not anything to do with me. Still feels odd.

Just got the next two books I hope to read. Will tell you guys about them soon! We have snow on the ground here now, not too much, but enough to make everything look different. The city has given us a new tree for in front of our building. They come around and plant them in the night, you wake up and there they are. it has red berries. No leaves of course.

I was lucky enough to get a stand-mixer for early Christmas. Last night I made a pie crust with it in about 1/5 the time it usually takes me, and with considerably less mess. We had a giant sausage and cabbage pie for supper. Was very good, and I think the crust was actually the best part. My mother told me that when she was little her grandfather said his grandmother made pies that could be thrown intact down a mine shaft. It was almost that kind.

Anyway, I hope this reaches you all, and that some poor overworked NSA fellow is not forced to read about my pies...Sleep well internets.

I had problems last year with Norton not letting me log into LJ, but no problems after I switched to Kaspersky.

A giant sausage and cabbage pie with a crust that could be thrown intact down a mineshaft? This sounds PERFECT for this weather. (No snow here, but we are chill and grey and dank, and the puddles are half frozen).

Pie sounds good! My appetite is returning as I recover from a bacterial infection following my surgery. Last night I went back for a second helping of chicken, mashed potatoes, and gravy... an occasional procurement run to KFC. Then finished off two slices of left over pizza.
We have snow... came on Friday and a bit more is being added this morning. Nice that I no longer have to go to work and can stay in and avoid it. At the same time I'm anxious to get out and enjoy it.

Never have had any trouble getting on to LJ. However, on my phone I occasionally have to log in at random.
