This afternoon, the girls and I did a bit of winterizing around the house by laying sheets of foam insulation around the base of the house and covering the septic tank, and the pipes to the house, with straw. The only part that is left to do is around the tap at the back of … Continue reading Did it work?
Soooo... a few things happened today. Long story short, we are still down to just one account. Long story long... First, we got a call from the tech guy, saying that he would be here between 1 and 3pm to see what's going on with our secondary internet account. Second, we got our ebill for … Continue reading Internet status
Yesterday was a perfect evening for a cookout! Well... except for the mosquitoes. The bug spray we used is supposed to last for 8 hours. It didn't! Unfortunately, my husband wasn't up to joining us, so it was just the girls and I. One of whom helped me unload the riding mower for the van, … Continue reading First cookout!
It seemed our internet woes were solved, late yesterday. Alas, by morning, we had no signal, once again. My shoes finally blew apart, though, so the girls and I went into the city. Yes, we can find shoes locally, but not anything suitable for my monstrous, deformed feet. Since we are in the city, anyhow, … Continue reading Greetings from the city
First up, a big Thank You to City Mouse for making a quick update post for me yesterday. We are still having internet issues, and it's not the trees! For those who are new to visiting this blog, here's out set up, in a nutshell. Because of the house being surrounded by tall trees, which … Continue reading Quick update, while I can
In my last post, I mentioned how we were having connectivity troubles with our satellite internet, due to heave foliage. It's very windy today. Since we switched cables on accounts, we've had constant interruptions in service, to the point that my daughter was having difficulties working. I'd gone outside to use up more of the … Continue reading Just a bit of a prune…
I have been trying for days to upload images, with very little success. We have had no real problems going online. It is just uploading that is an issue. This might be why. 😒 At one point, during the doors test, the upload speed dropped to 0.01mbps. Also, it took a couple of tries to … Continue reading Speed test
I'm still having difficulties uploading images, so I'll have quite a bit of catch-up to do later. So far, I've been able to upload a few photos here and there, but not enough to do even one complete post with them! The rest of the family is having slow uploads on their machines, too, so … Continue reading Making Waves
So today has been an odd mix of productive and not so productive. First up, we set up the wifi booster in the garage. There was some doubt as to whether it would work, as the outlets are against a metal clad wall. The first outlet didn't work, but the second one did. 😀 We … Continue reading Gates, take two, and getting wired… less
Okay, I'm being only slightly sarcastic with that title... 😉 The cold snap continues, and is supposed to continue for about a week. The above picture was taken a few days ago, on the last milder day, just before we headed into town to get to the pharmacy before the weather got worse. The camera … Continue reading Fun times…
