Technology! Scary Stuff!

Ok so whose bright idea was this? Now I have a phone that can send emails and post to blogs?

Does it make phone calls too? That's the only thing I have not tested it for yet ;-)

Oh and here is a picture I took recently with the phone too.

And don't laugh at this, it is a test post!

To eat more - YES!

To Cook - You got to be kidding! :-P

Broadband Outage

If its not one thing its another. No internet this morning. Apparently there was a broadband outage all over the country (even though I seem to be the only one who did not have internet!) Just got it back.

I tried to use my mobile phone to go on the internet. Bah! I don't know how people do it! I did not like the experience which just made me more and more frustrated. Another Grrr moment!

And before that I was woken up at about 4.30 AM by the phone. Strange time for a call! It stopped ringing by the time I got to it and they did not even leave a message!

Anyway... Just felt like a moan! Now I feel better :-)
