Thanks for everyone's sympathy/well wishes. We had been without the net I had almost reverted back to barbarism (reading the paper, watching the home shopping network, going to the library, etc.). At least I don't have to resort to posting my blog via iPhone (for now). It was a bit of a challenge, but in keeping with my mantra: Improvise, Adapt & Overcome (ok, I stole that from the Marines) and I learned to work around the system. Not to bore everyone with the details, but, basically, in order to post to my blog, I would write my blog notes in an e-mail to my yahoo account and then capture the note from my iPhone when I had a WiFi signal and post up on my blog. And posting via that tiny screen is "interesting" to say the least. That's why you see some repeated lines or mis-spellings. Hard to correct some of my words after they have posted. And forget about posting pictures (I ain't mastered that trick, yet).
So, now I am playing catch up with everyone's blogs. Been trying to read and comment via the iPhone, but it's been hard to keep up. Especially with the frequent fliers (sorry Abby but your security password is hard to navigate from my phone).
In the interim, getting back to something I started before I flew off to the Philippines last week - random pictures. Anyone recognize this figurine? I took this picture while on the phone with the Comcast service guy.
