Still no internet

Okay. The tech came out last evening and spent four hours trying to get us up and running with no success. It seems they switched satellites on us and for some reason they were denying us access to the only satellite that we could get a decent signal from.

Yesterday we tried our hilltop again, but the wireless connector stubbornly refused to cooperate. It reminded us of a string of Christmas lights, blinking alternately green and red.

Right now I am sitting in a laundromat in Laramie, Wyoming. We’re in town to wash clothes and bedding and restock our grocery supply. Rick just got off the phone from the satellite provider and we think we may have it figured out. Of course, we won’t know until we get back to the cabin and try it out, but then you realize we don’t have cell phone coverage any more so if something goes wrong we can’t call them and ask questions. Very frustrating. Keep your fingers crossed. I have some great photos to share with you!

i trust you’re managing to relax and soak up the loveliness, despite the web woes

Hey Girl! Yah I know I’ve been a bit lax….
Where did I get the idea life would slow down for a bit after girl guides?
Yah for you selling your house, I did take a peek and it looked lovely….Huge (I wouldn’t want to clean it)but I could see where the space would come in handy with all those dogs!
I’m waving at you now because your so much closer you aught to be able to see me…<grin>.
