Heavy Equipment

The excitement mounts at our place as high speed is on the road to becoming a reality....we have waited over two years for this! We had an appointment in July for the high speed company to test our place for a signal, but we were told the signal wasn't strong enough so it wasn't available. I was a tad down that night.

But, they were back yesterday to see if their "pole solution" would work. They got up high enough to ensure we could get a signal.And today they arrived with our pole!Moving the pole into place.Digging a seven foot hole.Some people might think this pole is fairly ugly, but I think it's beautiful!Because it's going to bring high speed internet into our lives.

Which means that blogging, and visiting blogs, and internet surfing, and publishing my annual Paws For Charity Art Book, and emailing photos....will now be possible without spending half my life on the computer!

Woo hoo! Next step, they have to mount the equipment on top of the pole. Then I'll be zooming around the internet.

Congratulations on internet! It's funny that we hadn't discovered each other's blogs until now. I'll put you on my favourites list so I can stay caught up with your NS adventures.
cheers! from Anne
