God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

Show of Hands

How many of you have ever been an evening without internet?  I got home last night and found that I had internet but it wasn't good, it kept logging off by 5:30 it was gone.  Shortly after that the cable died.  Of course immediately I was trying to figure out what was going on.

So of course unplug and plug the modem back in thinking it needs reset.  Then the cable thinking something there, eventually the call to the cable company.  "Oh we have an outage in your area we are looking into it."  Two hours later still nothing, 3 hours later still no cable or internet.

Thankfully I at least had the dvd and could color.  So finally at 9 at night I see flashing lights and go investigate.  HOORay!  Cable people are outside!  Needless to say everyone on our street were out seeing if they were going to get us back on.  Something on the line froze.  Some how water got into it and the water froze and caused it to kill what ever in the heck it was.

So long and short of this story at 10 last night I finally got cable and internet back.  Never realized how dependent I was on the noise of the TV and the connection I have through the internet to all of my cyber friends.

So any way I also want to remind every one that THE OUTLAWZ have a big party coming up.

And Karel's big BIRTHDAY BASH  is still going on.

I'm glad you got your internet and cable back. I used to have outtages with one cable company. Now I have the fiber optic thing with Verizon and it's awesome. That is, until a tree hits the main power source in our neighborhood and knocks out all power for 2 days!!! That happened a couple of weeks ago. I sure missed my internet!

Amazing how dependent we are on our technologies isn't it?? You never know quite how much you use it until it's gone! Glad you are back up and running. And can't wait to see what you colored!
