After 4 long weeks of no internet access, we now have a connection again!
We contacted 8 different internet service providers, and aside from the one who is not taking new customers (side note: it must be really nice to be so successful that you don't need any more customers) there was only 1 option that would work for us where we are. It's a cell phone modem that plugs into our USB port. I really have no idea how it works, but I am thankful for it! It's really slow right now but we have been told that a faster speed will be coming to our little town soon.
So, we can start blogging again! We may not be able to add quite as many pictures and video as we have in the past due to speed issues, but we will start posting again regularly.
I also plan to try to figure out what is going on with the title and link colors. It's really bugging me, it looked so nice before and I really have no idea what made the colors change to purple and blue instead of the dark red that matched the rest of the blog.
