I want to start blogging more, so when I was loading a new word document today, and noticed “blog template” I decided to try it out. Working on my husband’s resume can wait, right?
It was amazingly easy to set this blog up in word, even with my slow internet connection. I hate how when the internet connection is slow it seems to make my whole entire computer slow down. So much of my computer depends on the internet, I suppose. My connection is always slow in the early evening – I am just one of a hundred thousand to arrive home at this time every evening and expect to be able to check my email and Facebook. It sucks living in a suburb, because we are mostly ignored by the internet companies. The Federal Government is investing in rural neighborhoods, but our lines are so old they don’t work any better than rural dial up. We just pay more. I love how the internet companies convinced congress that they would take care of us, and give us (Americans) high speed internet, and they are now only at barely a quarter of the speed they promised, but they took more money than they said they would. I will find documentation to prove the previous statement1. I heard it on http://geekspeak.org/ a few weeks back.
