Back Online

We've been without internet service since Thursday night. Our cable company said there wasn't a problem in our area. Z and L have been trouble-shooting our systems for the last 4 days; our equipment is working!

Today, we miraculously have internet service again.....but it wasn't the cable company's fault. If you buy that, I've got a great deal on some swampland.

I've got a LOT of catching up to do with y'all.

Bell did that to me all the time.

Several days no service, they would insist on scheduling an appointment with a tech when I knew for a fact it was something in the area.

Man those people suck

Welcome back :)

When did you become Texan here with the Y'alls. LOL.... Internet service sucks really. I just had AT&T call and ask if we wanted cell phones to go with our package we already have with another two year commitment. No way. They are cheap but not that good to keep.

Hopefully you're not affected by all the flooding I've seen on the news... We have a downed tree in our neighborhood but it's nothing compared to what I see in Minnesota right now...

Of course it's never the service provider's fault! That would be too easy and too expensive! Glad you're back online.

Thanks Hammer!
They used to have great customer service, but that was before they centralized everything and closed our local office. :(

SME, this is coming from the kid who didn't shut-up all the way to Ames, Iowa?! The nuts don't fall far from the tree, do they? ;)

Thanks Monica!!

Tweets, I've been hanging around Hammer and Kyle too long. ;)

Laura, no, we're back into drought conditions up here.
The flooding is in the southern part of the state. My Dad's hometown area really got hit. :(

Thanks WC!
They've even made it difficult to call in about a problem. It takes AT LEAST an hour to go through all their recorded bullshit, before you can talk to a live person!! Most people give up before they report their problem. Sooo...of course there were no reports of outages in our area.

Glad you're back! I was worrying you'd gotten too busy to post and we can't have that!

Tweets, I hope things go well and you're able to have some fun with them. ;)

VV, yeah, we are busy, but I do manage to post once in awhile. ;)

I was wondering what happened to you, hoping you were all right! Nice to have you back!

I'm glad you have your internet back. That would drive me nuts!

I actually put up a new post since you've had internet!

Well, you missed nothing on my blog. I did my first post in over a week.

Glad to see your connection back.

I am having trouble too, going pretty nuts with it. Just when I want to get up a serious web site for my art. It brings up one of my pet peeves, I really hate trying to discuss with someone in India what is going on with my computer and the provider here in the same City. Not to mention that I don't speak Urdu.

Thanks everybody!

We had a couple more days of downtime. This time it was because L didn't tighten the cable connection enough after troubleshooting our system. OOPS!

May I ask in all sincerity , "Why do you Nth Americans use the 'HATE' word so frequently?" It would seem your intolerance level is always high and selfishness is coming out of your ears.
Always complaining griping and whingeing, why dont you take up the slack and do something for yourselves for a change. Have a rewarding day.

I haven't encountered that word in ANY of the many blogs and comments that I read, American or otherwise.

I also rarely encounter the word in my daily life. So I have no clue where you get that idea.

WHO WANTS TO BE A CLUCKWIT

Subject: Idiotic 'Millionaire' Contestant Makes Worst Use Of Lifelines Ever
Idiotic ‘Millionaire’ Contestant TSHSMOM Makes Worst Use Of Lifelines Ever

Kathy X, the single dumbest contestant to ever get on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"
NEW YORK – Ranier- Minnesota resident Kathy X brought humiliation to her friends and family Tuesday when she set a new standard for stupidity with her appearance on the popular TV show, “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.”It seems that Kathy, a 51-year-old wife and mother of two, got stuck on the first question, and proceeded to
make what fans of the show are dubbing “the absolute worst use of lifelines ever.”
After being introduced to the show’s host Meredith Vieira, Kathy X assured her that she was ready to play, whereupon she was posed with an extremely easy $100 question. The question was:
“Which of the following is the largest?” ) A PeanutB) An ElephantC) The MoonD) Hey, who you calling large?
Immediately Kathy was struck with an all consuming panic as she realized that this was a question to which she did not readily know the answer.
“Hmm, oh boy, that’s a toughie,” said Kathy, as Vieira did her level best to hide her disbelief and disgust. “I mean, I’m sure I’ve heard of some of these things before, but I have no idea how large they would be.”
Kathy made the decision to use the first of her three lifelines, the 50/50. Answers A and D were removed, leaving her to decide which was bigger, an elephant or the moon. However, faced with an incredibly easy question, Kathy still remained unsure.
“Oh! It removed the two I was leaning towards!” exclaimed Kathy. “Darn. I think I better phone a friend.”
Using the second of her two lifelines on the first question, Kath asked to be connected with her friend , Fat Tweety the local bonehead .
“Hi Fatso! How are you? This is Kathy! I’m on TV!” said Kathy wasting the first seven seconds of her call. “Ok, I got an important question. Which of the following is the largest? B, an elephant, or C, the moon. 15 seconds hun.”
Fat Tweety quickly replied that the answer was C, the moon. Kathy proceeded to argue with her friend for the remaining ten seconds.
“Come on Fatso, are you sure?” said Kathy. “How sure are you? Puh, that can’t be it.”
To everyone’s astonishment, the moronic Kathy declined to take her friend’s advice and pick ‘The Moon.’
“I just don’t know if I can trust That fat Tweety. She’s not all that bright. So I think I’d like to ask the audience,” said Kathy.
Asked to vote on the correct answer, the audience returned 98% in favor of answer C, ‘The Moon.’ Having used up all her lifelines, Kathy then made the dumbest choice of her life.
“Wow, seems like everybody is against what I’m thinking,” said the too-stupid-to-live Kathy. “But you know, sometimes you just got to go with your gut. So, let’s see. For which is larger, an elephant or the moon, I’m going to have to go with B, an elephant. Because a cow can jump over the moon but certainly not an elephant. Final answer.” Kathy sat before the dumbfounded audience, the only one waiting with bated breath, and was told that she was wrong, and that the answer was in fact, C, 'The Moon.'

Will the "New Germans" in Unclesamland repeal their antiquainted Gun Laws.

Posted: 21 Jul 2012 01:35 AM PDT

Anyone who agrees to the inane USA law " The right to bear arms, unconditionally, is off their Hill billy rocker. The law is so lackadaisical, that any unhinged bonehead in America and there are plenty of them - can acquire a weapon to wreak havoc on whom they please at their slightest whim. Fifty wounded souls and twelve indiscriminately put to death by a lunatic American Gun loony in a movie theatre at Denver Colorado. this was a new approach to mass murder inspired by the screening of a film(Movie) The Dark Knight Rises, a person (Male) carrying an assortment of weapons copying the antics of a character from the Movie. Colorado is not the only 'Horse Opera' gun slinging state of the union to allow this gun freedom. the widespread use of weapons as a first choice to settle disputes is rampant within the whole rotten core of the USA. An excerpt from my memoirs follows. While at Charleston, South Carolina,USA. I was sent ashore as the Ship's Limey representative with the US Navy shore patrol. During a discussion, an American officer asked me why I pronounced the rank of Lieutenant as Leftenant and not Lootenant. "Both spell Lieutenant" I replied, "However, our pronunciation does not infer they live in lavatories. Later we attended a domestic dispute at a trailer park that housed U/S Navy married personnel. When we arrived, a very angry person with a shotgun fired at us, shattering the wind shield of our truck. The driver then backed off and the police were called. When I arrived back on board my ship , I was asked, "How did things go?" I replied, "It was a very quiet evening according to the Yanks. God Bless America and all who sail in Her. Back soon VEST.
