3 weeks and no (or very slow and unreliable) internet

Yep, you read that right. For almost 3 weeks, I have gone without fast and reliable internet service in my house. We had Viasat (satellite internet) for over a year.

So we called customer service and they sent aContinue reading “3 weeks and no (or very slow and unreliable) internet”

Let the canning begin!

When all of this crap that’s been happening this year started a few months ago, I discovered that I really need to work on some survival skills. That includes growing and preserving my own food, just in case the economy collapses from the effects of COVID-19, and the grocery stores in town go out ofContinue reading “Let the canning begin!”
