Thanks, Addie, but it was short lived. In order to position my TV where I wanted it, I had to move the plug, and no more TV. I called tech support, and was informed that it would take awhile before everything was working properly so I'll have to wait, but If I had to choose between TV or DC, I'd much rather be here with my friends.

At least she confirmed that it was possible that I'd have internet without cable TV, so .... They do seem to be on top of the problems.

Yee-HAW as a friend would say. When I packed up and moved out to the farm in 2010, I s/how misplaced the keys to the safe deposit box. I didn't realize this until last September when I was entrusted with a bunch of family jewelry. I knew where the keys were in the house in the City, but since the house was emptied out so tenants could use it, I had no clue where I put them at the farm. I've been unpacking stuff that was in storage/brought back from the farm-I FOUND the keys to the safe deposit box! I don't have to pay the fee to have the lock drilled (which I was loathe to do--knew as soon as I capitulated and did that, I'd find the keys). Now I can take the jewelery out of my dresser drawer and put it where it will be safe. And, I have put the keys back where they were for 20 years. I'm not losing my mind!

Of course! Why would you keep looking for them after you found them? So you could say they were in the second to last place you looked? :grin

Those keys were talking to the stuff I deliberately threw on the floor and it jumped back up on the table. There is a conspiracy with all our belongings to drive us crazy. They talk to each other. I can hear them at night when they think I am sleeping. They talk and plot the night away.

Kitchen wall re-do was finished on Friday, and on Sunday we had a few friends over to admire it. It was a fun little party and I'm so happy with the results of the work. It is such a pain to have the kitchen pretty much unusable for over a week (we could use it to some degree, but it was much smarter to eat nuke-only, delivery, and out). I'm happy with the result and am enjoying my new kitchen.

Right after the hurricane I spent my food stamps ($35) plus a good chunk of my own money to partially restock after losing all my refrigerated and frozen foods. On my way home from the store, the cab driver said I should have received an added benefit and I called for the recording that told me I had another $16. I was happy with that.

Just a few minutes ago, a neighbor stopped by and said I should check again, because people were getting more, but it was taking several days to be added. I doubted it would be more than the additional $16, but was elated to find out I have $181 now!

Doing a Happy Dance!!!

I'll be shopping Wednesday and Thursday, so I'll be working on my grocery list, especially to make sure I have more canned foods on hand, in case of another storm.
