Houston, we have a problem


Sorry I haven't blogged over the past few days. Life has a funny way of getting in the way. After several days of trial and error and yelling at the phone company, I finally discovered that the reason why my phone wasn't working was because my computer modem is kaput, busted, no more, it has ceased to exist, it is an ex-modem (for all you Monty Python fans).

Until I can afford either a new computer or a new modem, I'm forced to use the computer at the public library, which only allows me to use the computer for 45 minutes a day. Yes, 45 minutes a day. Doesn't that just suck?

So much for job searching at the moment, plus I have to work on the invitation list for our Wine & Cheese reception.

Plus Peter Jennings died this week, and I'm majorly bummed out. I know it's not like I knew him personally but he came into my living room for over 20 years. He was the only news program that I really watched, and the fact that he died of lung cancer just brought back memories of all the people I've lost in my life to smoking related diseases.

Okay, off my soap box. I probably won't be blogging except for a couple of times a week, and I won't really be able to read other people's blogs, which majorly pisses me off. I feel cut off from the on-line world right now.

In the meantime, keep on blogging, and I'll try to find a time that I can play catch up.

Thanks for reading!

Sorry to hear about the computer problems--I hope they get sorted out soon.

I'm with you on Peter Jennings. One of the cable channels in Australia plays the ABC News each day and I always admired his style and his non-sensationalism. (Yes, we also get the FOX NEWS network, and watch it simply to be gobsmacked.)

45 minutes a day! They would have to put me in detox because of withdrawal.

Bummer! Hope you get back soon!
