Fingers crossed, but it looks like they got our internet repaired.  It went down completely last night and was still off when we got up this morning.  Mac rebooted it and it took off.  I can even get to AMAZON!!! The world of American commerce is saved.
When we went out to walk this morning we saw one of Century Link's repair trucks leaving their little building and Mac talked to the driver who said they'd been working all night, a new piece of equipment had been put in and now they had to "plug" in about a 100 more subscribers.
That was about 3 1/2 hours ago and things are still whizzing along.
I had bought some music from Amazon before all the trouble started,  but had been unable to download it because of our problems with connecting.  This morning all 15 of the songs downloaded in record time.  That's a relief.
We pay quite a few of our bills online and it's a problem when you're not sure of the connection you have.  I hate writing checks.
It had reached the point where I was even looking into Comcast to replace Century Link even though Comcast is the most hated company in the country.  So, as I said, fingers crossed.


  1. This made me chuckle only because my kids freak out if we have no internet... like they think life is over!!!!
    Mind you, I'm pretty lost myself! haha!!
    Much love to you,

  2. Comcast is a nightmare. I cannot believe in this sort of thing that they have a bit of a monopoly.

    Good that you got the internet going. I think we would have to all walk down to the coffee shop and use theirs, we're pathetically addicted

  3. I get so angry about out poor internet service I've had a repair man out here on Labor Day. They know me.

  4. I know I'm addicted to the internet. If my tv goes out I'm fine, but I need the internet. We're 8 miles from town so no walking to the coffee shop for us.

  5. Generally whenever our internet is down, it is off for about 10 days. The first three days are a struggle and then I pick up a book to get so engrossed, that when the internet connection returns my priority is with the book until it is finished.

  6. Whew! Glad that has worked out for you! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. I will join you in singing praises!!! Yeah!


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
