We Have wi-fi! How cool is that?

We do have wi-fi at our friend's house in Yallingup, Western Australia, where seven of us have gathered to see the New Year so I'm able to wish you all a wonderful New Year. We may go to Augusta today which is on the coast. We will go through Cowaramup which is a big dairying area and they have lots of fibreglass cows in the streets so hopefully I'll get some nice photos there. Someone is cooking bacon and eggs, pancakes, mushrooms, baked beans and toast for breakfast so I'd better fun. See you all in 2017! And I've chosen a vibrant rose which seems to me a good choice for hope for the future.

I have some photos of the cows. Just need to pick out the best ones now. :) Shall I use this one or the 'udder' one?

The cows are really cool but it's hard to pick which photo to use. I might need to put some in the comments.

I don't use FB and when we were with this group of friends, we usually have a couple of hours after lunch where we read or have a nap so I was able to interact a little without feeling that I was being rude.

Hope is a great thing to offer. This rose however looks painted rather than natural one. Is it? :) I have never seen a rose looking like that either..Happy New Year. :)

That is awesome I know in your last post you said you wouldn't have wifi so you would not be here at mylot for a few days. I'm excited for you :-) Augusta and Augustus were two of my favorite names when I was young (My birthday is in August).

Oh I am so jealous, that sounds like such a good breakfast and here in the US no one does a fry up breakfast like they do in Britain and Ireland and obviously also Australia. Enjoy it for me and don't forget to have a bit of Christmas pud for me as well!! lol

Today it seems more families have wifi connection at home. So when we visit to each other, we will use their wifi connection to get online. Sometimes you will you are isolated if you are offline in the cyber world

@JudyEv Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! I wish I could have a huge home-cooked breakfast every morning, but unfortunately I often don't have time to cook. But like you, I try to have a big breakfast at least once or twice a week, usually on Saturday or Sunday mornings.
