Hi Beverly,

I wrote you a mail via the hotmail account on your website, but I'm not sure
that the account is still active. I just thought I try this way after the
failed attempts to send to your other address. Perhaps you could give me
short OK or Not-OK? I haven't had time to look into matters with the other
provider, so sorry; and now DD is sick again - otitis and other
cold-symptoms. Really, I don't know where she picks them all up. She hasn't
been out without her 'astronaut's cap' (as we called it when we were kids)
for days, and only on Friday she spent a few minutes outside without and her
ears hurt again. Guess it's another Sunday trip to the children's emergency
in the morning. <sigh> I wish I could spare her all the pain, but that is
probably not possible. Today she cried bitter tears about 'not having taken
care of her ears'. I could have cried with her, but I have to stay rational
and look for remedies and help. I'll postpone my nervous breakdown until the
time when she's 18 and out of the house. <madish, hysterical laughter>

It is active, I just sent myself a test message and it came
through, so I don't kow why yours never arrived.  The
adddress is not a live link, you have to type it in.

It is fine to contact me directly.  You can also use the
address I use here, but you'll have to unmunge it:

I'm so sorry your DD is having earaches, few things are
harder for a parent to deal with.  The pain is severe, and
there is so little one can do to offer healing.  Hope things
are better soon,

Oh no, it came back again and they want a lot of technical details I just
can't give to remove me from the blocked list. I don't know what they want
from me - blood? I just post the message here, it's nothing indecent or
intimate; I'm too frustrated today to try again the other ways of
communication.
Here goes:

Hello Beverly,

I thought I mail you privately because of the nature of my request and hope
I don't offend you with it. I know you can digitize anything, and I know it
will be years until I get my embroidery machine, and be as skilled to use
it. My DD loves a certain cartoon character and recently spied a
Kindergarten pal's bag with that certain character on it. Now she goes on
and on about having just such an embroidery on some garments. Of course you
can't get the character without the bag, and, to be honest, we're already
drowning in children's bags, so I'd hate to get another one (and I
don't dare ask for the price of that darned thing). The question: If I sent
you a picture, would it be possible for you to digitize it and make sew-on
sticker out of it? And what could I give you in return, if you did it.
Perhaps, just to make it worthwhile, you could make a couple (two or three)?
If that is easier... Then I could sew them on bags or jeans jackets or
whatever, and remove them and put them on another garment once DD has
outgrown the item. Bold as brass I am today... ;-)

Did messages from you bounce to both my comcast and hotmail
addresses bounce?  Could you copy-and-paste the bounce
message here?  I'll try to find out why your messages are
bouncing.

No offence taken, I'm happy to help you out.  I have asked
another poster "here" for her agreement to act as
intermediary. Maybe we can work out an end run around
whatever is blocking your e-mails.  Wait just a bit, we'll
figure something out.

Ursula, I just sent you a link which Comcast gave me, in
order to whitelist your address.  Apparently no one using
comcast has any friends in Germany.  ;-}

Let me know if you are able to use the link.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you; partly it's of course the
different time zones, but then, today is one of those days out of hell. DD
woke us all up at 5:40 and we couldn't go back to sleep because she insisted
on involving us into her activities. Now we're all tired, out of temper and
none of us got a siesta. It's 3:30 in the afternoon and I've barricaded
myself in the office upstairs; outside DD is knocking on the door, crying
'Mamaaa!', not knowing what she wants any longer because she's so tired. My
brain is kind of numb. All in all, just another normal day Mamaland. ;-)
However, thanks to you and Sharon for taking the trouble; I'll attend to
things presently.

Thank heavens and homeopathy, the little darling is on the mend. Here eyes
were festering, too, and are still, but at least the fever is gone. I got
the useful hint to wash her eyes with calendula tea (1 tbsp of leaves,
boiling water over them, 5 min. to steep, can be drunk in times of cough and
sore throat or used for washing inflamed eyes) before using the eye drops.
Anyway, I had news from my NZ friends who live directly in the affected area
and now I'm waiting for my call to get through, so I had some time and
filled in the silly Comcast form. Thank you! I think the stuff went through.
We'll see what comes of it. ;-)

I'm glad your DD is better, it's difficult to manage "life"

Did you send something to me recently?  I have not received
an e-mail from you on either my hotmail.com or comcast.net

No, but I got mail from Comcast, basically saying that I entered the wrong
IP addy. (see below) Currently, I'm trying something that looks good in the
failure message I got after my test mail last night (needed the website
again, didn't expect it to go through). I'll fill in the form again and then
we'll see, again. ;-I

Re: Ping @ Beverly
I GIVE UP!!! The number they want is nowhere in the entire mail to be found.
Frankly, I have no idea what they want from me. The code I thought might be
it was rejected by the form. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact
that it's a foreign address. I don't know.<breaks down, sobbing on her
keyboard>
Anyway, DD is here with me and I daren't stay online any longer lest she
upsets the entire office. I'll attend to this later again, when I've got
more breathing space.

Chances are that your ISP uses a number of IP addresses and does not
assign you a static one.  My ISP does that, as do all the larger ones,
unless they have assigned an address to a user.  So giving Comcast one
IP won't work.  You can get some information at
http://www.ip2location.com/ Another site you may find useful is
http://geektools.com /

I expect Beverly will be along to add to/change my suggestions.  ;-)

No additions or suggestions.  I have asked comcast support
to whitelist Ursula's entire ISP domain.  I doubt they will
do that just for me, but it's worth a shot.  We can work
around this issue by using a willing intermediary.  ;-)

Re: Ping @ Beverly

Thank you! I'll go to those sites later. Hmm, it occurred to me that maybe
one reason for the problem is that we have two addresses on one account.
Probably I put that wrong; what I mean is: When I & my 'puter moved in here
with DH, he created a separate email address for me from his account.
Perhaps that is the reason for Comcast's irritation, although I don't see
how that can be remedied. I wonder if they'd accept hotmail... Why didn't I
think of that sooner? Beverly, I'll try tomorrow; don't wonder if you get
mail from rotmops at hotmail dot com, and a Mara Croeg. For now, I'll call
it a day; DD has been very troublesome today and in addition, I have some
unpleasant side effects from my new blood pressure medication; one of them
is that I don't wake up refreshed from my sleep. Number of hours - OK.
Number of interruptions - negligible and the same as before. I guess I need
another med. Ah well, I'll think of it tomorrow. ;-) Thanks to all of you!

I just talked to support at Comcast, they are adamant that
they cannot whitelist a domain at *my* request, the request
has to come from *your* ISP. If it is not too much trouble,
call your ISP support and ask *them* to go to the comcast
link and fill in the whitelist request form.

Stoopid, mutter, mutter....

It's possible, and worth a shot.  Although as I understand
how hotmail works, your IP (Internet Protocol) address info
still appears in the headers, so whatever blocklist comcast
is using may still bounce your mail even with a hotmail@
sender address. You MIGHT have better luck sending your
message to me at my hotmail address: ickesb [at] hotmail dot
com.  I can  pick it up directly at hotmail online.

<sigh> You might also try setting up a gmail address, and
send to my hotmail address?  I'll check my private blocklist
to be sure I didn't set up a rule to block all of gmail.

Keep after your doctors to find the right drug.  I had to go
through three iterations of BP meds before I found one that
worked and did not give me nasty side affects.

Good luck,

Comcast.net is being idiotic, and I apologize for that.  One
would think that a direct request from their own customer
would have resolved this.

I had thought (wrongly, apparently) that the IP address
shown in the headers of your Usenet postings would be
sufficient.  I will make one more attempt from my end to
resolve this.

In the meantime, please send the file to Sharon for
forwarding on to me, and we'll see what we can accomplish by
leaving direct e-mails between us out of the loop.
