Can't Blog

The "universe" is working against me lately. Again, the corporate IT rulers of the universe have determined that all websites containing the words blogspot or any variation thereof are off limit. I get some satisfaction out of clicking on multiple blog sites throughout the day though, hoping to trip a meter someplace in the bowels of our server, consuming bandwidth nevertheless, even if I can't actually read my favorite blogs. I'll bet the IT Gods are reading them though.

And at home, I am not even able to access the internet most times using my dial up service. It acts like it's going through the motions, at the speed of molasses, but ultimately comes back with "server not found." After multiple attempts, it might find the server, but then it is painfully slow accessing any actual content.

Very frustrating.

I need to find a hi-speed internet service that is available out in my neck of the woods without costing hundreds of dollars just for the set-up. We don't have cable access but I would think there is a satellite option that would work (without having to buy a special dish). Does anyone have any suggestions?

A happy belated 4th of July to everyone! Mine was spent visiting Sparky** in the hospital and staying home*, trying to pacify the one dog who can still hear the thunderous fireworks (Smokey is no longer bothered by noises of any kind). They went on all night around our rural neighborhood. Oy.

* While my husband was here (visiting our boat in Tacoma, while the Tall Ships were in port):

** gratuitous baby picture (the wires are all monitors of all sorts...he is doing great!):

Baby Sparky looks like he's putting on weight & growing like a weed. His color looks much better too in that photo. Is he doing well on learning to maintain his body temp and all that too? Was the NEC scare resolved beneficially?

Still praying for that munchkin!

Lynellen, the NEC scare was resolved beneficially...apparently, it was just a small infection in his tummy. He's all better now, and learning to eat from a bottle...he is definitely putting on weight and growing like a weed. His oxygen levels are starting to come back up which means he's making his own hemoglobin (something else I didn't realize was a problem for preemies...most preemies need transfusions, but it doesn't look like he will, at least not yet).

Thank you guys for praying. We all appreciate that!
