Have you ever seen a more beautiful sight?
"Zo, what is that? " you ask.
"Why it's my brand spankin' new DSL modem with solid green lights."
"Isn't she a beauty? She arrived in less than 48 hours, so I take back all the swear words I directed at my provider since Monday night."
Thank goodness I did not have the experience Alice's friend had. Here's Alice's comment:
A real-estate agent told me last week that she wanted Broadband for her business, so she rang a major supplier and was told they would post the modem to her. She said there's no need to do that as my office is directly across the road from you and I can almost see in your windows as I speak. After much argument, the provider still insisted that it had to be posted. NINE WEEKS later it still hadn't arrived! Another provider was more than happy to oblige immediately.
Now I am off to read all the blogs I missed for the past two days.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
