Hi everyone, as you all know, I generally have to travel to the local library to use their Internet signal to post on my blog. The more I thought about it, it's a real pain. When it's cold, I have to get up early start the car and let it thaw out, then, I have to drive 12 miles one way to get there. The temps can be well below -20, 30 or more and that is not a whole lot of fun, not to mention the snowy and/or icy roads. It's a real pain.
You also know that at the cabin, I have been using my phone for Internet access which takes a real toll on my eyes and typing those little letters can be a pain in the you know what, lol. So, this morning I was trying to use the Internet and the signal kept going in and out because of the weather. Well! That was enough for me, I came pretty close to throwing the phone against the wall. I didn't, I kept my kool and said to myself, there's a better way. I sat down and drank a few cups of coffee to settle my nerves, then, got dressed and went to town.
When I got to town, I headed straight to AT&T and purchased me a MiFi for my laptop at home. I felt so good, I stopped at Burger King and got me a Big Whopper, double order of large fries and a Diet soda. Mmmm! It sure was good. Headed home and set it up and yes, I am composing this post at home on my laptop. The MiFi itself costs $147 and the monthly bill is $60. Do I think it's worth it? Yep, sure do.
I feel it's going to calm me down, save me gas running the car to warm up and driving 24 miles round trip. I can sit here comfortably and not have to sit among a lot of people and I can drink eat or whatever I want to do while online. I wish I had done this a long time ago. I feel good as I type this post.
I am adding a few photos I took this past week.

Breakfast this morning, powdered scrambled eggs, bacon and fried potatoes
My laptop working in the cabin
This is the little Gizmo I use for the Internet and I don't have to keep it connected to my laptop. Has WiFi
Anyway, that is what's going on for now. So I will be able to post more often.
