No Posts for Months - Blame DISH

I saw that Haley, my daughter-in-law had posted something new on her blog and she mentioned how it had been 5 months - or something like that - since she last posted. So I looked at my Papa Lyndel blog (this one) and saw that the last time I posted here was at Easter!

Haley knows the reason. Dish Internet is INCREDIBLY SLOW!! It is sooooo slow that I cancelled it and had to pay cancellation fees for quitting before my contract was up. But the cancellation fee was cheaper than paying for it for another 6 months - it just all came out at once.

I guess I should ask them if I get a refund for all of the days it didn't work. What days would that be? Any day with clouds that were heavier than wispy white.
Here is a diagram that explains how satellite Internet works. This may explain part of the slowness.

If the only way to get the Internet was through satellite dishes the Internet would die in about two weeks. All e-commerce would come to a screeching halt. But then I guess we would be spared a lot of YouTube videos of cat's sleeping and stuff like that.
Maybe I should have had more dishes. This would look cool out on Hickory Point don't you think?

So if you are curious about my grandchildren - which is the point of this blog - you'll have to be my friend on FaceBook I guess. I can upload from my phone on FaceBook and now and then will put up pictures of my 6 beautiful grandbabies. Even ATT with my slow "E" connection (no! they don't have 3G in the country) is a thousand times better than DISH satellite.

You can always keep up with my church blog -
