|We are having wi-fi problems at the campground once again. Yesterday I tried to download some software to protect my desk top computer and it was downloading at 8 kb per second. After several hours of downloading at that slow speed I had nearly 70% of the software downloaded and then I was kicked off the internet. Grrrrrr.....
This morning I tried to get on line and could log on but nothing else. Grrrrr....
So, here I am at McDonalds enjoying a hot cup of coffee, sunshine streaming in the window, and I have a high speed internet connection. Life is good once again.
Since I spent most of the day yesterday trying to download software from the internet and helping Marilyn play with Colby, there isn't a lot to report, but I do have some Colby pictures for you to enjoy.
I also want to report to you that I spoke with Louise this morning and she informs us that Gilbert had triple bypass surgery yesterday. He is still in the ICU in Montreal, but is doing well. We are sure going to miss seeing him in the RGV this winter. One of the problems with the health insurance in Canada is that, after a major surgery like the bypass surgery Gilbert had, he has no insurance if he travels outside of Canada, for a period of one year. In other words, his insurance coverage does not cover him outside of Canada, although he can purchase insurance for the time he is out of the country, but it would cost him about $40.00 per day.
It was nice to speak with Louise again. She says they are getting settled in the new home, but have more work to do. We have been invited to visit them but I'm not sure when we would be able to do that.
Last night, after we took Colby to meet his Mom at the hospital, Marilyn & I stopped at the local KFC to pick up fried chicken, potatoes and gravy, and cole slaw for a late dinner. We watched "America has Talent" on TV, after the President spoke of the financial crisis. Now I am thinking about politics.
I still think Howard's analysis of our political situation is right on the money. Most of the comments were good also, even though a few people could not resist the opportunity to insert their own bias into the fray.
It is too bad that so many people speak with their emotions, don't take the time to get accurate information, and then state as fact, false or inaccurate information. Hmmmm, if they say something totally false, can it be called information? I think "opinion" would be a better description.
Thank you Howard, for taking the time to research your information, and for stating the facts so clearly!
Well,dear readers, I will now stop before I get on a rant without sufficient information. I will take a few moments to post some pictures for you.
God bless each of you.
Yesterday was a frustrating day in some regards but being with Colby made the day a good one, and I just can't wait to see what this day has in store.....
