We've been without internet service for 3 days and that just about drove us crazy. I don't know how we got by before. James and I are addicted, that's for sure. We made a trip to our library yesterday so we could check email and catch up on all the very important things we've been missing, like the newest listings on Craigslist, Freecycle, Facebook entries, etc. I had 18 emails and before I signed off I had 4 more. I'm a very important person, you know. Ebay, Amazon, James Fralinger salt water taffee and the likes are always sending me important messages. After 2 conversations with the people at CenturyLink, a very nice repairman, Jim, came out and got us back online. It may not last though because we've had lots of trouble with our internet in the last year, but for the time being I'm happy to be able to sit here and type this. I now have CenturyLink Jim's cellphone number programmed into my phone.
One thing I did enjoy about not having internet to distract me is I took time to sit and read a really good book, Blackberry Wine, by Joanne Harris, the author of Chocolat. I highly recommend it. It will make you want to make your own wine, plant a garden or vineyard, or maybe even move to France. Like in the book, I think I hear one of my wines talking to me. And no, I haven't been drinking, yet. Cheers.
