Well, I have had a very enjoyable visit here in my hometown of Mountain City. One of the things that bothers me when I visit here that the internet connection is not the best. Packing everything up and going to Hardee's to use my high speed was kind of a pain. However, I seemed to have figured it out now.
When I changed my cell phone service I opted to buy a Blackbery Storm phone. Now I knew it would do eveything but the dishes and I wasn't sure if I could ever get all those little bells and whistles figured out. It was quite a learning curve and it was a lot different than my old "hand crank" cell phone. After some major hurdles I found you can teach "an old dog new tricks".
Before, I left Washington I had found out I could tether my laptop computer and my Blackberry cell phone together and I could have high speed intenet without leaving the house. I wasn't sure how good it would work here in the mountains of East Tennessee but I gotta tell you it is excellent!! I have high speed connection and in the two weeks I have been here I have only used 1 Gigabyte and I am allowed 5 Gigabytes per month. I couldn't be happier---
The weather here has been great for the most part. A little rain and lots of sunshine keep these mountains beautiful. As I reflect on the past two weeks here are some things I've done.
As soon as I finish packing, I am planning on one last dinner out and memories to last until I come back again.
That's it for today.
