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!
