Cable companies in the US often provide the best internet speeds. You can get internet from the phone company too. I have had both and currently have internet from my phone company which was actually a faster connection than the cable company had to offer at the time (at&t Uverse). We also have companies that do wireless internet for the home and that is usually a slower, more basic connection.

Doing some hydrating after planting some red Pentas, hoping to attract some butterflies to the yard. I'm drinking up last year's bottled water - need to get a new fresh supply as I begin gathering up this year's hurricane supplies. How can it possibly have been a year already?!?

They are changing the gas tank. They are also fixing the parking brake, which was hardly working.

I was out the door early this morning. Took a friend with me as my caretaker. We had a great time. When we got back ,she bought two Reuben sandwiches.
Hooray!!! I ate a whole half. I will try to eat the other half tonight. If not, there is always tomorrow. We really had a good time. It has been a while since she has been out of her house also. Must do this again real soon.

I really like this mall I go to. It is an outside mall. No place for teengers to hang around. It is still in the building process. I hope they open a restaurant real soon though. It would have been nice to go and sit there to eat.

Aren't we more fun than errands though?

What I am I doing? I'll tell you since you asked. I am in the process of calming down. You see if there is one thing I admire the most in someone, it is having intelligence and putting it to good use. But when you play dumb for the sake of just getting attention or wanting your fifteen minutes of fame, then I have loast all patience with you. I would rather deal with some one who is mentally challenged or an Alzheimer patient. They have a valid reason for being the way they are.

I can now state that I am calm for the moment. Who knows how long it will last.
