Kids, Don't Try This at Home

I used a Blackberry to log onto our website, and let me tell you, it's like going back in time. The Blackberry runs over the wireless airwaves, and acts like a 2400 baud modem, this means each page takes almost ten minutes to load, before you can move onto the next page. The Blackberry is just fine for email, but for browsing the Internet, don't try it.

We had planned to leave for home from Las Vegas at 8:00 AM, but we slept till 9:00 AM and finally were ready to hit the road at almost eleven in the morning. We stopped by Rita's daughter's and took some picture's of her new grand-daughter Faith.

Finally on the road home, we made a quick stop at Stateline for lunch, and before we knew it, it was two in the afternoon. Needless to say, traffic moved at a snail's pace, and we didn't arrive in San Dimas till five-thirty.

I was so tired from the drive I had no interest in logging onto the Internet, and allowed my computer to rest one extra day.

Not sure I'll do much more than post a message here tonight?

My grandson David was waiting for me when I arrived home tonight, he scored 100% on his computer test, and some of the questions were not easy for a ten year old. Guess I could say he's a chip off the block. David, like his grandfather, likes to wear different hats, and many mistake him as my son. In a way he is my son, he's on my insurance, and has lived with me most of his ten years.

Among Ourselves

Among Ourselves is our company newspaper for employees, I had a link to this popular newspaper, but it has been moved to the Intranet. Many retired employees enjoyed reading Among Ourselves. I wonder what genius moved it from the Internet to the Intranet so outsiders can not access it?

Good Night,
