Cox bundle

Just a quick post, while I have internet to let you know that my cable and therefore high speed internet and telephone keep going out randomly. They are supposed to be here to check it out Wednesday, so if something happens and I don't respond in my usual speedy fashion, you'll know "her cable's out again".

Other that the constant frustration of being without cable and thinking, well maybe it's this, and maybe it's that...anything to keep from having to call the service guys..other than that, our lives are good. Now that I see this in print, it seems a bit trifling to be worried about the internet, but it's really the phone that is important. I have one of those old timey "pay as you go" cell phones that I use periodically, so I at least have something. What did we do before this age of technology?

My question to you is this. What would you miss most, in the way of technology, if it were to suddenly disappear? Inquiring minds want to know. Could you live like a pioneer? I'm just wondering.

OK, let us hear!

I would miss my blogging friends like you! And I'd miss being in touch with the world, knowing the news, etc.
I don't know how I'd do as a pioneer woman. I think I might feel more peaceful though.

My radio . I would miss my radio so much
I'm addicted to A.M. talk shows .... and thank God there are still Christian stations.
and yes .... like Rebecca > I would miss you !

I also have a pay as you go phone. :) I do believe the internet would be really difficult to live without. But then again air conditioning, convenient appliances, etc. would be hard too. I do not think I could have ever survived as a pioneer. I would have been dead by the time I was 20. :)

I have a love/hate relationship with technology. It's a blessing and a curse. I would miss it for awhile then be fine without it.
I refuse to own a cell phone and I won't get rid of our landline. Call me old fashioned.
Could I survive as a pioneer woman? Yep, but I would prefer to be a pioneer woman with electricity. :> )
Hope you get things straightened out. I know how frustrating that is!

What would I miss? Part of me says only indoor plumbing and part of me screams "the computer", but most of me says simply, " Modern conveniences." I have lived without a phone and a radio and a TV and even a computer. I have lived without air conditioning and even indoor plumbing. I have cooked on a wood stove and heated with other than electric heat. But, pioneer? I think not --I am far too lazy and spoiled these days!

...and here I thought I was a pioneer! Callin' cable help in??? Guess it all depends what the cable guys look like. Heeehehehe!!! I've been sick...not dead. :o)

I love to write and the blog is a great outlet for that. What I didn't expect it all the wonderful friends and support I've found in Blogland. I'm still having problems but I had to check in. I've missed ya'll!

Hi, Susan...delayed comment here...lightening struck the transformer right out side our last Saturday evening and we didn't have power for 3 whole hours! O. M. G.! At first it was kinda cool, so dark and scary but then we were like, what are we goign to do???? We ended up watching a movie together on Collin's tiny screen propped on the shared arm of our theatre seating. After the movie we talked about how we need to get one of those radios and some of those flashlights that you crank and shake....and maybe one of those bicycles that you pedal for power. :D
