I did try to do a post yesterday but instead fell down the
rabbit hole. After several calls by the wife to our internet
service provider, I decided to have a chat on the chance of
a better outcome.
We had lost phone and internet earlier in the day and both
remained silent until we got a new modem and registered it.
We went to a local branch of said internet provider and did
get the new modem and the person who waited on us said that
not only did the faulty, obsolete modem crash our internet
and end phone service but it also would not have allowed us
to dial 911 in an emergency!
So after a month of spotty internet and phone we believe the
problem has been fixed with the new modem. At least we hope.
The strange part is I said from the beginning it was the old
modem while our internet service provider kept telling us it
was outages. She was then told that we’ve had more “outages”
this month that we have in the entire 26 years we’ve lived
We were also told the company sent us an email stating the
modem needed to be exchanged for a newer model. We never got
it. Finally the problem is resolved so perhaps now regular
posting will not be an issue. As we explained to our service
provider, we have been without computer, phone, or both for
over three days this month and that is not acceptable to us.
And that’s a good thing because we really didn’t want to give
up cable TV, the internet, or our landline to eliminate the
stress caused by these outages. Besides, here on the east
coast of Iowa in our little humble inner-city abode there are
no bears to make winter coats with and coal is getting hard
Oh, on the good side the wife did get a new to her car. This
mechanical marvel drives me nuts. You don’t need a key to
open the doors or the trunk, and it starts by just pushing a
button on the dash. I’m going to have to study the owner’s
Enjoy the rest of today and keep the shiny side up. This time
I have a huge carne asada burrito with my name on it to hold
me over until it’s pizza time.
