The worst thunder and lightning storm in recorded memory hit us yesterday about 4 pm, and I stupidly forgot to unplug the computer. It knocked out my cable modem and kept me off-line for about 16 hours, producing the worst withdrawal symptoms you have ever witnessed. Thankfully, I got a new modem before the DT's took hold! Rest assured, the next time it even hints of thunder, I will run to unplug everything electrical in the house.
There were some very good plusses to not being on-line last night: I did watch some TV, I read magazines dated this week (not last) and I completed a couple of crosswords. Well, I didn't complete them, I just went as far as I could go. I got into bed before midnight and was able to read several chapters instead of a few paragraphs. The best part was being able to get out of bed before 8 a.m. I am ashamed to admit that I have been sleeping in quite a bit lately, since I spend so much night time on the computer. The man who lives here tells me I am addicted - as if I didn't know it already!
I picked this up somewhere several days ago. If I got it from you - thanks - and I hope you aren't mad I stole it.
Sow happiness in your neighbor's field and you'll be surprised to note what the wind will produce in your own.
Juliette was pretty smart; but it's just another way of saying "What goes around, comes around".
I'm thrilled to be back on-line, so I hope you're happy to have me.
