Default What Do You Get If You Have Tx. Lightning, and Computers?

You get knocked off the Internet for a week.

Friday the 13th is no longer my favorite time of the year. Last Friday we had a lightning storm, that struck in the back yard. We were sure that the house was on fire. It wasn't but it killed the modem for the computers. We had never had to deal with our servers customer service, and now we realize that it isn't so great either.

You don't realize how much you miss the computer until you no longer have it.

Our trip is this Monday, and it wasn't until today, that I was able to see our e-tickets, and the arrangements for our motels.

I missed everyone, and hope all is well.

By the way, I had 230 e-mails waiting for me.

Luanne, I turn mine off, if I am at it, and duck... quack, quack

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Luanne its good to have you back on line and to know that no one was harmed by the lighting strike. I have a local provider for my internet service, it might not be the fastest connect but i get great customer service.
