    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Has anyone ever just, mysteriously, lost their landline dial tone? Mine just dropped out on Saturday afternoon which, of course, meant no DSL. This is a problem that could not be addressed on the weekend...only between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday thru Friday, with some kind of hours on Saturday that I totally missed. (I guess you'd be "doo-doo" out of luck if you didn't have a cell phone!) Gone are the good ol' days of 24 hour telephone service of yesteryear! I called at exactly 8 a.m. this morning, since I was going through serious withdrawal. Never talked to a person. The computer menu tells you what it wants from you, runs a diagnostic test, and then tells you it's found a problem, and when your problem should be resolved. It told me that it would be all better by 6 p.m. tonight. Thankfully, it was cured by 10 a.m., probably by just throwing some switch. At least I didnt get kicked to India by the call routing procedure!!

    Yes, this weekend was absolutely beautiful. It hit 73 here yesterday, breaking a record high. I slept with my windows open last night, and it was the best sleep I've had in a long time. This morning, the low was 62, which the weather-man said was about 30 degrees higher than our normal high... By the weekend, temps supposed to be back in to the 40's with rain in the forecast. Better enjoy this little gift of spring-like weather while I can! I'm thinking of going home "sick" today...

    We're the opposite here in Cali. It is cold here today and rained like crazy last night with temps in the 40s. I live by the beach so it is weird for it to be so cold. By the weekend we'll get back into the low 70s again. I call this yo-yo weather because it never stays consistent.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I am loving the 65 weather today-I wish it was like this every day. I do eventually get used to the cold weather, but as least prefer the sun shining.

    Oh great Newfsayer, what else have you forseen? Who will be president? Will Waldo ever be able to ride in the car without getting sick? Enquiring minds want to know............

    Prhoshay, I have had that happen before, but we do have 24 hour access with our phone and internet company and can call them anytime. We never get a real person anyway when we call, so I guess it doesn't matter.

    Where did you get it, and how much will it cost me to get it back?
