Marking Time

We are not standing still. No. Not by a long shot. It may be hot but we are moving fast enough to not notice.


We got FiOS. Fiber Optic bla bla. When I got here a couple of weeks ago I couldn't even watch a great video download because it crawled along like I was on dial-up. I called into Verizon and asked what it would take to connect me to the zippy FiOS. Not bad, not much different, and if I discontinued a monthly fee for long distance I could save that on the monthly bill. Furthermore, I learned from the very pleasant woman on the other end that when we go back to Mexico we can put the whole phone, internet business on vacation and save 75%! Wow! Who knew? The deal now is that once I open iTunes the regular podcasts that I download are just moments from finishing. What a difference. I must really be careful to not get too quick to fall in love with some new music because I can own the album in moments. I bet I could even watch TV shows. Like Weeds if I missed an episode.

sh I could download Bella because I miss her.

Whoa! Way too high tech for me! Once again, I have no idea what this new (I assume it's new) FiOS thingy is. I'm very glad you do though, so I can drop by for a visit. Nothing like a horse photo to bring my blood pressure back down to manageable levels. Thank you for that.

So what's your favorite podcast? I'm always looking for new ones to listen to on my daily Smooch walks. My two favorites are Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and This American Life. And you're a Weeds fan...woohoo! I love that series.

Carolynn, it's something to do with glass fiber and light pulses. But, HAHA, I don't get it, just love the speed.
Callie, you are the sweetest of them all :)
Linda-I listen to GeekSpeak from KUSP (NPR) Santa Cruz which only has an hourly podcast. When I run out of that I also love This American Life, Grammer Girl, and Fresh Air. Weeds just gets better and better. Now I know someone else who watches. Cool.
