June 12, 2013
Again, it's good afternoon. I started to post here an hour and twenty minutes ago, but then an ad (from my cable company) came on TV, and I stopped to call my cable company to learn more about the "wifi on the go" that the ad was all about. The phone lasted an hour and fifteen minutes.
Well actually, it was two phone calls. The first phone call was 25 minutes, and then the lady who "knew nothing about what I was asking" said she would transfer me. She did. To a dial tone. Having someone hang up on me frustrates me wicked bad.
I called back, and the next person actually took the time to help. Although I must say that the help really had not much to do with the TV ad that I was inquiring about. It seems that the product that was being touted as "included in my service at no extra cost" did not exist any more. Xfinity no longer offers Wi Fi On The Go.
Instead, they offer an ap for your tablet or phone, that once installed on the device, will allow you to find a hotspot in the area where you are (if there is one). This ap is free till December 31, 2013. I must assume that after that there will be a fee for this service.
So, for the time being, I will go online and add some time to my Mobile Broadband stick so that I can go online while I am at work. However, I will be checking around for a better and less expensive way to do this.
Today, let me share some photos of my roses. All this rain is creating havoc in my gardens. It's rotting blooms, knocking whole plants to the ground, and knocking lots of petals off the flowers. These photos were taken in between bouts of rainfall when the sun was shining.
I also called the nail salon and made an appointment to have my nails done tomorrow morning. So, that means that all my errands will get done tomorrow. This afternoon, I will sit down and pay some bills. Then I will feel like I have accomplished something this week.
Now I need to get dressed and get busy around here. There are dishes in the sink that need washing, and daughter in law will be coming soon. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
