I checked Verizon’s internet as well as Comcast – in both cases you either have to be a current customer and/or get at least two different items – phone service, cable TV, etc. in order to qualify. I’m not sure any of the major companies would even sell you just internet access, though I may be wrong. I don’t want to bother paying for a land phone line right now when I have a few more months on my Verizon cell phone commitment; I don’t have or want to buy a TV, and it wouldn’t make sense to get one just so I could get internet access. I think I’m outta luck!
I guess I’ll continue with the air card until it breaks or my contract expires. While MiFi sounds good, I’m not sure it would be any better in this location. Better the devil you know than the one you don’t know.
The hummingbirds continue to provide entertainment, and the nectar goes steadily down. This morning I saw a squirrel in the tree outside my patio, looking directly at the other feeders. A bit later I caught him hanging to a post and barely reaching the bird seed. I chased him away and moved the feeder over a bit so that he can’t reach it in that way. I’m sure he will eventually go on the roof and hang upside down while eating his fill. That’s when the feeding is over. I wish they didn’t have to ruin everything. With all the oak trees around I can’t believe they can’t find enough acorns.
It’s a beautiful day today, with the temps in the shade at about 70. Perfect! I just can’t get up the energy to do anything, but I will go to the bbq at Jeannie & Donald’s house on Monday.
