I'm Taking Advantage Of Internet Access At Work

February 22, 2012

I'm at work and typing this tonight for tomorrow.  As long as I can have access to the internet here at work, I thought I would do my post tonight for tomorrow morning.  It's been a hectic day, trying to tie up all the last minute ends before I leave for vacation.  The mail away box is on it's way, I finalized plans for my rental car, and transportation from and to the airport in Orlando. 

All the bills that have come in are paid, so now there's only a few things left to do (I think) before I leave.  The internet problem at home is driving me nuts.   It's also making it difficult for me to leave comments on other blogs.  I'm beginning to think that the problems lie in upgrades for Explorer and Google because it's affecting my desktop PC at home too. 

I'm having second thoughts about not taking Tootsie's stroller with us.  I thought it might be easier to leave it home and have less to carry back and forth, but having it with us would make life easier once we get to Florida.   There's still a few days to decide. 

Yesterday, I attended a workshop at Barnes & Noble bookstore to learn how to use my Nook tablet.  Once I got there, I didn't feel so dumb anymore.  There were quite a few people attending the workshop.  They have these workshops twice a week, so I should have plenty of help finding my way around the tablet.  I already bought and downloaded my first thing.  Angry Birds, of course!

I have one more thing to buy, Broadband 2 Go.  Plus, I need to buy a card for a month's worth of internet access.  There is still no internet connection at my condo in Florida.   In good weather, I can go to the pool area to get access to Wi-Fi.  But, if it's raining or cold or late at night, too bad.  That's why I will be needing the Broadband 2 Go. 

I have a couple of photos to share with you.  These were taken over the weekend at work, through the kitchen window.  In the first photo, these two adorable birds are deciding whether or not to share the dinner station.   In the second photo, these two delightful birds have decided not only to get along, but to chat while they enjoy the food.

Wayne is supposed to coming by my place tomorrow night to try to fix my computer woes.  Gosh, I surely hope he can do this.  I miss chatting with my friends here and on other blogs.   Now I think I'll see about downloading a book onto my Nook tablet, and hopefully I'll be back here by Thursday morning.  Till then, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

So sorry for you reading about your internet problems.
Toyching wood I must say, Blogger isn;t doing too bad for me.
I mostly use Mozilla Firefox, instead of IE. May be worth a try?
It sure feels good to see that other peoplealso have trouble with techy stuff, isn;t it? LOL
I should post now and then have to do some errands around here.
Have a wonderful day

I absolutely love your photos! Your bird photos today are such a day-brightener. Thanks for sharing.

I switched from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome this week. So far things seem to be better. IE had deleted all my bookmarks and then it wouldn't let me replace or add any.

I want to know more about Broadband 2 Go!

The photos at the bird diner are great!

Have you looked to see if there is someplace you can rent a doggie-stroller in Florida? You can rent scooters, wheelchairs and people strollers some places. Might be worth checking out.

Hugs, Nani

I also want to learn about this Broadband 2 Go - might be a good solution for us when we start full time in the RV.
I would take her stroller, especially if she's not feeling well lately. You might be able to rent one as Nani said, but could find yourself wishing you had it with.
Nice photos and hope you have a great time on your trip.
