I wish I could say I just took an impromptu 3 day vacation but, sadly, no. My internet service was down for the last three days. As mysteriously as it disappeared Friday afternoon it suddenly reappeared today. OMG, it was horrible. I mean I still had satellite TV and land-line phone but it felt like being completely isolated somehow (I do live in the wilderness) without any internet access. And it was starting to affect my work too since I need to email clients for consultations and billing. I busied myself at work, chores, and I even picked up a book (about ancient Greece) and read it for hours. OK, now that I am able to participate in the 21st century again, back to posting.
