I'M B-A-A-A-C-K!!! AGAIN!!!

I have phone service. Therefore, I have dial-up.

Don't look down your nose at that. It's 300% better than no Internet at all.

It should help. At work, I do have Internet access, but, there, I tend to --- work. What a crazed idea.

At home, I have no TV (TV - what's that? I haven't seen anything worth looking at in a L - O - N - G time). Later this year, I may break down and get a small one, and maybe a DVD player. At current prices, I can hardly resist.

I've been out of the loop for a while. Since I work at a school, some sites get blocked. I never can figure out why. Although it's better than last year's filtering, which alerted you to a blocked site with (in LARGE, RED letters):
This site may have PORNOGRAPHY. You are forbidden to view it.

Need I add that I never knowingly accessed a porn site in my life? It was highly embarassing when that message popped up when there were kids around. I felt like a perv.

Found this Top Ten List via the always-excellent A Face Made 4 Radio, A Voice Made 4 the Internet. Follow the link to AFM4R,AVM4tI for the entire trail, which I'm frankly too tired to reconstruct.
Top Ten Signs Your Supreme Court Pick Isn't Qualified

10. "Lost 10 grand yesterday in the 'case' of Jets vs. Ravens"

9. "Spends most of her time trying to fit the gavel into her mouth"

8. "Her legal mentor: Oliver Wendell Redenbacher"

7. "Asks courtroom stenographer to, 'Quit that annoying tapping!'"

Get the rest of the list - they're FAB!

From the critiques I've found, Miers will have to overcome a lot of skepticism to establish herself on the Roberts court. I might suggest that Roberts "court" her - if she feels like "one of them", it will be easier to mold her into the justice conservatives would like - or at least tolerate. But don't ignore her - you can bet the liberal justices will co-opt her in a heartbeat. It sounds kind of junior high, doesn't it? But I think it will prove to be important. I just don't know how people-savvy Roberts is. In this case, it could be crucial.

Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!

Losing access sure makes you wonder how we got along before the internet!
