I was off line for almost a week thanks to a faulty modem and lots of dithering around by Earthlink. I'm actually only online now because I got a wireless card for my computer and I'm using my mother's wireless upstairs. I think I'm probably going to ditch Earthlink at this point. They gave me such a run around.
One way or another, regular blogging will resume (as regular as my blogging ever is) shortly. I have not one but two fun bike rides to tell you about. I'm having so much fun with the new tandem! It shouldn't be legal!
