A very quick post

This post is just to say....I have not fallen off the edge of the earth!  Since May 30, I have been completely and entirely without internet connection of any sort.  I was supposed to get hooked up last Tuesday, but when they came to the farm, they found that the cables were from 3 generations of "cable types" ago, and were not suitable for the internet signals.  I now have to have new cable installed from the road to my farm because it is over 400 feet to the road, which is too far for the signal to travel.  I haven't been given a firm estimate on when these cables will be installed.  Subsequently, the house cable guy needs to come back to actually hook the cable from the final pole on my driveway up to the house, and then do the internal wiring stuff, which is another whole day, and they only work in my area on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  So, all this is to say, I do not have internet and it may be a few weeks before I get it, which is tremendously irritating for me.  However, it's life as I know it right now.  I shall be back online just as soon as I possibly can.  In the meantime, I am just posting this during a quick visit to my parents, where I am borrowing their signal!

Since I won't have access for a bit, if you comment on this post and you don't see your comment showing up, it's because they don't post until I moderate them first, and since I can't get online to moderate, I can't get them to show.  I'm not ignoring anybody, really!!

Soon you shall hear about all the adventures and of course all the latest news from Lucky Nickel, goat diva!  In the meantime, I don't recommend visiting right now - there are mosquitoes big enough to bring down small aircraft and they seem to think my house and yard are their ideal home.

Hope to be back soon!

Oh that stuff can be so frustrating! Hope you can get it all settled soon. I could go without TV just fine but ewwww I hate when I cannot get online!

As they say Better Days are Coming!

It's nice to know you are still alive. Hope Lucky Nickel is enjoying the new farm and being home. Hope she has new friends and everything other than Internet access is going well. The minis are doing great!

Those parents. They're always good like that with signals, Peanuts and what have you. Hang in there! Someday it will be worth it. Although your teeth may suffer from all the gritting. :)

I am one of your new neighbors, read about you in the weekly newspaper and I am thrilled to hear about your new venture. I have ofter seen programs about goats and fantasized about owning "angora goats" at one time and how great it would be to knit using their incredible coat. I live on only 1 small acre in the middle of Collingwood Corner, just down the hill from you. I do own Oreo (a chihuahua) and two cats (Sasha and Teegie) and that is the limit of my animal farm. I plan on visiting you soon and want to welcome you to our little neck of the woods.

Graminator - thanks for the warm welcome! I am so pleased to hear from a local person and glad to hear that you read the newspaper article (which I haven't seen, myself!) Would love to have a visit from you anytime. I'm here most of the time these days. Lucky Nickel isn't here yet - I'm working on getting her a safe area, I've heard the coyotes are bad around here and have seen the black bears! She needs to be safe!!! Future plans include sheep, more angora and pygora goats, angora rabbits and llamas and/or alpacas. Stay tuned!!!
