Default Trying a "Good Evening" post, again!

My day was good, but I've had a terrible time this week with my Internet connection . I had a "Comcast guy" here Tuesday, Wednesday, and 2 of them on Thursday, and it's STILL not fixed! I keep getting knocked offline after about 10 minutes. The "engineer" (whoever that is???) is supposed to come tomorrow to check things out.

As many of you may know I'm a very laid back person, but I have to say I finally took my frustrations out on the last person I talked to. (Poor guy, he took it well!) There's just no acceptable reason to put a paying customer through this!

Any suggestions on how to get this fixed????

Fern, I can sympathize with you. We had a internet problem for almost 2 years, but it was the phone lines not the computer. After DH tried to tell them everything in the house was checked out OK, it had to be outisde, someone had cut a line under ground, the problem was finally found and fixed. Frustrating is putting it mildly. I hope that the next guy they send will finally.... geter done!

Good Evening Fern, and all those to follow. We are settling down for the night here. Kids gone, and hubby listening to the high school game on T.V. I got a lot done today, so i might take tomorrow off to do me things.

Have a great night everyone

Luanne

Good evening all. What a great day most of today was. Had a Halloween party with the daycare kids. We watched a Winnie the Pooh halloween video, played ghost games, colored ghost and witch pictures and ate CANDY. The kids wore their costumes and had a great time.

The reason I said "most of today" was great is because when Tony came home from work today, he informed me he thinks he has a problem with his front brakes. The truck just recently had a new transmission put in (under warranty) and had front balljoints and stabilizer work done. So what started off as a great day, ended not so great. Oh, well. Two steps forward, one step back. Now he has to drive me to work tomorrow and use my car so he can go to work. I hate him using my car. The reason he probably has so much car trouble is he drives like a lunatic and drives his truck very rough. My car is treated like a baby. I give him strict orders when he does have to use my car. Bad news for him though is I have to be at work at 6:30 am and he doesn't have to be at work until 8:00 am. Looks like he's getting up very early.

Speaking of getting up early, time for bed. The alarm is set for 5:30 am. Hope everyone has a great and safe Saturday.

Good evening from Orlando......guess I could get away with saying good morning at this point!
Had a very long day in the all staff meeting but a fun time at the football game tonight....Boone Braves won and I guess will now be in the playoffs.
I'll have to miss that game though since I'll be in San Francisco on a land trip with my sister.
