Another Pokey Post

Still no word from a technician to schedule a "fix" date for my satellite connection. I can't say that I'm surprised since it took about 4 months for them to fix the band speed problem I had last fall. I haven't lost my temper yet but I'm simmering so the eruption is close to the surface.

I've tried, a time or two, to visit a few blogs but this mysterious connection on Zach's laptop is like limping along on crutches so I become frustrated pretty quick when it takes forever for a page to load and then for the comment screen to load. Also, since I don't know where this connection comes from, I don't like to log on for very long in case I'm slowing someone down somewhere. It really is a miracle connection though, we have two neighbors about a football field length away and the next neighbors are almost 2 miles.

I had a Chick and Beans weekend, they visited on Saturday and Sunday. I took some great photos that I'll be posting, whenever HUGHESNET GETS A TECH OUT HERE TO FIX MY SATELLITE!!!!!!!

The weather has been typical wonky for Arkansas in early March. Yesterday we were having thunderstorms, it was 68 ,degrees, raining really hard, and we noticed some clumpy looking substance falling past the window. After a closer look we discovered it was SNOW, big huge clumps of snow were falling with the rain. Yesterday it was nearly 70 and we woke up this morning to 33 degree temps.

I'd best get busy now, have a few things to do before time to pick Zach up at school. He and I have a doctor's appointment at 1:00. Ya'll have a good day now, ya hear?

Good Morning Brenda,
I'm sorry you still havne't got your connection fixed yet. I would be on the phone everyday with them until someone came out. I would also tell them I wasn't going to pay the bill and that you are going to call the BBB and let them know how you are being treated. It may not do anygood, but it might. One never knows. Monday we got alot of rain here. I bet we got around 4 or 5 inches. Tuesday we got a tad bit of Snow, but not even a dusting. Now we are under a Winter Storm Warning starting at 6:00p.m. tonight and going thru midnight on Friday. They say we could get around 6 inches of Snow here. As weather is always changing, we will see what we end up with. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
