no thanks to my cable company! Murphy's Law: TV goes out so they break your modem trying to fix the TV!!!! But am up and running now, catching up with the auction, but just as importantly, catching up with a certain (luna_61) someone's birthday!

Ah, so that's why you've been so strangely silent! I was just about to call to make sure you were okay. Of course, the modem would have to go just at your busiest time of year in terms of online action!!!!

By the way, I was thinking about your aunt the other day (I think it was aunt, the one in the movies?) What was her name again? I'm sure I should know it!

Lovely day at the beach today, with lovely wind off the water making the nearly 100 degrees livable! Water was warm, too, with lots of waves. A bit too rough for me (don't feel that steady on my feet especially on the sand) but was a great time with sister Kathy, her daughter, Zoe and her best friend, Amanda. Can't imagine why we never spent much time at the beach when I was a kid! It's only an hour away -- not unlike the ocean, really, except it's fresh water, not salt.

Alexis Smith

And yeah, she was on TMC a couple of times in the last month. :) It was fun watching her. I still don't know how fiddling with my tv, cable box, and crap in the cable closet could affect my computer, but it did. But at least it's back - even though the tv problem persists. :(

I was offline for almost 6 days myself, thanks to an update that our ISP sent out. Apparently, my modem took one look at the update and committed suicide rather than submit, so I had to wait for my ISP to send me a new modem. Which is an indirect way of saying, I feel your pain. It's irritating enough when random acts of God take away one's internet, but there's a special kind of in-your-face slam when it's the utility companies themselves who do it. *sigh*

Welcome back!

*waves happy birthday at Luna*
