Glitch is a good word, isn't it? It denotes "problem." That's what I had.
I went out yesterday evening as we were setting the table outside for dinner to turn on the stereo system in the garage. Nothing. OK, the iPod needed to be charged. Still nothing. Uh-oh.
My first thought was that my ancient El Cheapo receiver finally had died. Would not have surprised me.
But I just now went out into the garage to brave the dust and spiders and cubic stuff stacked everywhere to see what's what.
A glitch, is what. The connections between the receiver and the speakers were grotty (another great word). So were the connections between the receiver and the CD player, and between it and the iPod. All connex renewed, music returns to the garage and back yard. Those little JBL speakers once again are loud enough to annoy the neighbors. And there will be music for dinner tonight. But not loud enough to annoy the neighbors. Really!
Perfect. I love it when glitches are solved without spending a dime. Now all I have to do is find relief from the dust, spiders and cubic stuff.
