well, my posting roll (I was on a real roll there with the posting!) was interrupted by our bright idea to rid our lives of the pesky telemarketers.... when we had our regular phone disconnected there was supposed to be no interruption in our dsl service. wrong.... when we couldn't get online Mike called the company only to discover that although they could disconnect us internally, they'd have to reconnect us externally (huh? why/how is that?) and that our "dry loop" (what?) did not yet technically exist... when Mike asked to speak to a manager, because this was not what he was promised earlier, they routed him to "john" (ironic! we got rid of our phone because we didn't want to speak to "john" anymore!) and "john" didn't speak any form of english that was able to be understood.... so "john" routed him back to the states, and Mike swiftly promised never to do business with that dsl provider ever again..... which meant that our new service provider is a company that I REALLY hate doing business with.... oh well. gotta keep those posts rolling.... or do I? I don't think anyone reads this blog anyway. So- Henry and I have been reading and getting cosy and doing things that are really better than looking at the computer. that is Henry, above, digging on one of his new favorite toys- a truck that is also a book- it makes a revving engine noise when you press the front wheel, and tells a story about a farmer bringing his foods to the market in town.
