GO TEAMS--To all our sports teams, our Warriors and our Mules, we wish you much success in your coming games.
NOT HAPPY--Currently, I still have no access to the internet, so I'm our of the loop, unfortunately. With no cell service and noe texting or Facebook info from home, I'm a tad bit annoyed, to say the least! I'm told the "unit" is out that serves my area, so I'm hoping it gets fixed very soon. I also hope I get a rebate as I'm paying for service that I'm not getting! Meanwhile, be sure to call my land line with any news you may have and I'll hope it stays working, even though it's been "iffy" lately as well.
