I never thought I would have high speed. I do not have the highest speed because it is not available here. I have 3kps or something like that. It is nice to actually watch some of these news clips on the computer now. My former phone company(Alltel) said that they did not foresee me getting broadband anytime in the next 5 years. This was early last year when my phone line that they messed up had to be replaced. Late last year Windstream bought out the land line service and in December we were notified that broadband was available! I was thrilled! A couple of weeks ago a plan became available that was right up my alley. It was called Greenstream. It is a plan for people that only use their land line for Internet service! That was me! You only pay for broadband and not phone service.Broadband was $20 a month cheaper than my phone service was plus I saved another $23 on the other Internet service. This was enough to convince Pat that it was the way to go! He is happy with the speed. One question. Do I need a separate firewall other than the one that came with the modem? I have one. Just wondered if I needed it.
Update on Baby. She is next door with the cows that are there. She got out and the dogs chased her in the field. I am not a rodeo star so there is no way I could catch her by myself. This has caused a change in plans. I will be placing electric wire up across the field and cutting off the front field. I will then start resetting fence. Yep. The whole front will be getting new posts and rewired. It is something I have been wanting to do for a long time. This is the push to do it. I am not talking about doing it over a week's time. There is no way I can do it in that time. Each hole for posts must be done by hand. I have a hand held post hole digger, not one on the tractor. What I am going to do is move the fence line over also. It will be closer to the driveway, closer to the road. The very front , which has good thick grass will be under fence now. A row of trees will be planted across the road frontage, with a bit of space between it and the new fence line. Up the creekside, I am not sure if it will be barbed wire or hog wire. We have a problem with erosion on the creekside. I am also having a new problem of a severe mole problem on the creekside. The new fence will go up to the barn. After all that is done then we will be putting new fence on the back sideof the property. At my speed, I figure this will take me a couple of years! It is also a costly project. Poles, metal and wooden, barbed wire, hog wire, electric wire, fasteners, all this cost oodles of money and I have not won the lottery!
My dream is to make us a little less dependent on the grocery store. This means growing my own food, including meat and vegetables.
Strange dream last night. I dreamed of large grasshoppers invading. The birds were feasting but so were the grasshoppers.
My Brook is in an International newspaper called TaeKwonDo Times(I think). It is published in Korean so I cannot read it. This is a big year for her. She will not have a lot of free time during the summer. She will be in serious training for her black belt. She is working on having her hands listed as registered lethal weapons. That does not happen until she becomes a second dan (second degree black belt).
That's all for now. I have to get busy. The kids are coming over to work on fence with me and I need to get dinner started.
