A Little Dish of Miracles

It's amazing how much of a difference a little satellite dish can make. I never thought that I would miss high speed internet more than cable TV, but it's true. The connectedness I feel with other people through instant messages, email, pictures and blogs is so important to me at this point in my life. Especially now that we live in the middle of the woods.

I know I haven't blogged in a long time and I have a lot to recap (the first summer running a camp makes for lots of stories including fires, lost campers, staff drama, learning a complex job on the fly, etc.) but that will come in time.

Today the focus is on just reconnecting with my former readers. If you are still checking this site, thank you and I'm sorry. I just couldn't handle dial-up for posting. It was like going into a time warp and trying to use and Apple II. It was just more frustrating than it was worth.

Once the dish was up on the house yesterday I immediately started downloading podcasts like crazy. I can't believe how fast satellite internet actually is. Maybe it's just because I am so used to dial-up, but it was really flying. I must have downloaded 20 podcasts last night just trying to fill my ipod with fresh content.

Well, unfortunately that is all I can think of for right now. I'll probably be posting daily or bi-daily again, but I won't promise anything until summer is over and my life slows down a little. Look forward to sharing my experiences with everyone again.

P.S. - Finally fixed that stupid error message that kept popping up. Turns out Google Analytics is more of a pain than a help!
