That is right. You read this correctly. But, before you jump to any conclusions, realize that this is just for a couple days. I am waiting on UPS to deliver a modem and also waiting for me to be hooked up to high speed broadband. So I am goinf to take a break for a day or two until I get hooked up woth high speed. I have a graden and more gardens to tend to and dig etc anyhow. This is going to be hard waiting this last 30 plus hours till I get hooked up with broadband. So everyone take care and have a great time here myLotting. See you in 24 to 48 hours or whenever I get hooked up. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hey, Grandpa Bob~ Ok, sad to see ya go, but you'll enjoy it when you get the high speed!! I envy you with your garden, lol! I am just getting moved into a place myself where the view is great, the soil is mostly hard rocky and barring that, it's sand! It also gets in the triple digits, so needless to say I will have to get creative in having my garden!! But do have fun with yours nevertheless & we'll see you back online when all is done! :-) B~

Thanks bunches. My yhard was not ready for a garden when we first bought the house 5 years ago. I did a lot of digging and adding things to the ground to get it to where it's at today. Now I plant anything and it almost always thrives for me. Still on dial up for a little longer. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I hope you get your gardens all taken care of in those 48 hours that you will be gone. What are you planting? Tomaots, cucumbers, potataos? Maybe your UPS package will come sooner than you think and you will be back on in no time. See you when you get back.

I've been there and done that, Grandpa Bob!We used dial-up for almost 2 years, and those 2 years were so full of frustrations and mounting anger. Either we didn't have any internet connection for days, even weeks every month!And downloading was so slow that I can take a nap for 10 minutes and it's still downloading!!! That was my husband and I had enough of dial-up service that we contacted the company and said our goodbyes. We looked for another company that offered DSL service but at a more costly price. But our monthly payment for the DSL service is so worth it! I hope that you will have a better and enjoyable experience Mylotting with the broadband service.Because I sure do!!!

The times I lost my connection with dial up I always called AOL and complained and got a free month of service as pay back. I think I had a year straight that I didn't pay due to mess ups. So that is one reason I have good things to say about AOL. The downloading sux big time. I can't wait for the hyper speed to upload and or download soon. I think mine is going to be $24.99 and it's locked in at this price for life. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

With the former company, I've written them complaint letters and they made me wait for more than 6 months to adjust the right amount that we have to pay. They kept giving us billing statements with the fixed amount of internet usage. Even when we have weeks of no internet connection!

Wow, I don't really respond to your discussions, but your daughter is one of my friends. When I saw this, I knew instantly their had to be a reason.... I'm glad your getting the DSL it's so much faster. For the first few days your going to be dizzy from how much faster it is then dial up. Congratulations on the upgrade, and happy surfing when you get back from your "mini vacation"

Good for you and I am very happy for you. You sound like you're totally pumped as the young people say. High speed is a bonus there is no doubt. I just want to share this little tid bit. I read I am leaving myLot, and the first thought in my head is, Oh right grandpa Bob you'll be with myLot till the bitter end. hehehehehehe. You didn't have me going even for a second I simply kept reading. Take Care. Can't wait to hear all your good remarks and happy postings when you get back on. I remember when I got my internet, I thought it would take forever.

It will be worth the wait. I've had dsl for a few years now, and I don't know how I ever did without it. I've been spending more time outside as well, cutting grass and pulling weeds, and hopefully I'll get my garden in when the ground is dry enough, though it might not be until July.

Just a mere 22 1/2 hours max till it is hooked up. 5 p.m. my time Thursday is the latest they said it would be available for me to get it hooked up and running. I did a lot today. Planted a bunch, watered, mowed, and a few other things like a couple loads of laundry etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Once you get that high speed you are going to be a posting fool, so I think it would be a good thing to take a break until then to tend to the gardens and rest up a bit.

I waited most the day for UPS to deliver my modem. Then I was doing my gardening, watering, and mowing on and off all day as well. Now as the modem was not delivered I have time for some fun here. I was gone a few hours and missed this place a lot already. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi Grandpa Bob, Catchy title. I'm glad it's just until you get your highspeed, and am so happy for you, that you're getting it. Enjoy your gardening, and take lots of great photos to share with us here.

Thanks. I plan on adding LARGER photos when I get high speed ISP. Before anything over 150KB and the page would freeze not allowing it to be uploaded. So I am hoping this will help in that area as well. I want to show off my garden and flowers in FULL size photos. I think I'll have a discussion or more about my gardening exploits today later tonight as well. Look for them soon. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I hope you hurry back. You scared me for a minute there. I really thought you were leaving us for good until I kept reading on to see what was happening. I hope you get your computer up and running soon too. I know that I have to take a break from here sometimes too. I hate to but have to do it sometimes. Have some nice time off. See you soon.

Take your time and enjoy your garden. Mylot won't go away and it's here to stay. How fast is your new broadband? I guess you'll be zipping around each discussion here. Your new broadband speed will surely increased your productivity here at mylot. Enjoy your 30 hours waittime. Use it to do some unfinish business. Have a great day.

Boy I am glad that this is only for another day or two, as I and many many others would miss you if you really left. But Glad to see you are joining the world of High Speed. I could never imagine anything else myself. Enjoy your time away from here, and see you when you get back.
