Yes, it makes it a lot easier to see now with it being bigger, I love it to bits
I didn't know there was 3D TV. Do you have to wear special glasses?

I am heading out to a country fair to watch my girlfriend's son play some classic rock. Only to be fair, and in the spirit of things, I am having a couple of quick classic spirits, myself. Rock on!!!

Don't worry. I have a DD.

The farm should no longer have a phone bill, but for some reason, the idiots continue to bill me for it (or credit the wrong #)--I ordered it disconnected in APRIL and picked the date in June--but, since I haven't supposedly paid the bill, once again, my line in the City is cut off because I opted for one bill for both lines!!!!!!! And, of course, I can't call and B*tch because I can't call the phone company which shall remain nameless. I'm so frigging sick of this.

Back to the Samsung phone....I've had this brand of cell phone in the past so I thought maybe I'd go with a prepaid cell...glad I didn't buy it! Need to do more research on plans and coverage in the technological black hole in which I live. I'm going to the farm in the morning so I can use my prepaid US cell phone to call and B*tch.
So I called today--from the farm, using my US cell phone...had to walk halfway to the US border to get a signal.

The short story is that yes, the landline was cancelled instead of the landline at the farm--oops. The line in the City was restored 6 hours b/4 I called, and yes, I have a credit of $33. I so would like to have a different option for a landline.

Phew. That sounds like a whole lot safer trip than your zip, which scared me just looking at your picture. Did you see the picture of London's Mayor who got hung up mid-zip? Fortunately, he seems to have a lively sense of humor.

Time to get off my butt and put away laundry. Bf is in charge of washing/drying it, and bringing it back upstairs for me, so the least I can do is actually put it away. ::sigh:: He always seems to get around to doing laundry when I have the least amount of motivation.

I'm about to go out and raid the vegetable garden--chard, kale, zucchini, corn, and whatever else I find. I am heading back to the house in the City later. It is a long weekend so I have the lowest electricity rates from 7 p.m. tonight until 7 a.m. Tuesday. I'm going to be busy in the kitchen processing stuff for the freezer. And, the central air will be on!
