Internet Withdrawal and Thought for the Day

My internet went out over the weekend. Had to get a tech out here to fix it. Seems that all the electrical storms, not that any were that close, caused static in the air which affected the satellite dish. Well, I'm not a technically savvy person so that's the best I can do on the explanation. Hey, it's better than saying our severe weather blew out the receiver thingy. But needless to say, both my grandson and I have been having internet withdrawal. He hasn't IMd his friends all weekend and I had something like 148 emails today.

Here's a thought for today: At five minutes, six seconds after 4 AM on the 8th of July this year, the time and date will be 04:05:06 07/08/09. No, even though I had the time with the internet being out, I didn't think of that myself. But I do think it's pretty neat.

Now that's a tidbit your son will love about the time. He'll be awake to see it but I won't-just saying;)
