No Internet

Dear Loyal Followers of Melody's blog,

This is her sister, Brooke.  Melody asked me to let you all know she is having technical difficulties.  Apparently, she and Dave were trying to get the speakers wired under the house ( I know this is familiar to you, if you've been following along) and although they can access their Netflix accounts and watch movies, they cannot get the internet up and running.

Hopefully, this will all get resolved by this weekend.  Hang in there.

  7. O M G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a near catastrophe. How did we (I) get so totally addicted to an electronic service. Hopefully you are not as Verklemt (choking with tears) as I am.
    All kidding aside. Thanks Brooke for the heads up. I thought no blog entry was quite unusual. Good luck straightening out that snarl of wires.

    ~ Check the internet "filter" that is on your phone line. The darn things go bad all the time with just a little jolt.

    ~ Since pop's is gone, I see another Chumster of the K-9 variety in your near future!

    You always worry when a regular suddenly goes missing!

  15. Come on tell the truth, she is burried in popcorn, and curled up on the couch watching the entire series of Sopranos on Netflix!

  16. Melody,

    I'm glad you are okay. If the wires are still loose everywhere you might threaten to knit them. :o)

    When you get internet back go peek at

  17. Well, this speaks well for Netflix. I just watched "Inception." A very imaginative and creative movie. About 2 1/2 hours. Just right.

    Brooke, if they have to have the Internet people out, they might check to see if there is some other problem because of the slow loading of the blog for the past week or so. It loaded fine when you posted.

  19. Brooke, tell Mel that we have the same setup... we have a cable from the box that provides Netflix that connects to my PC, then another cable goes from my PC to the router which connects to the modem... ain't technology fun? BTw, the box is by Dynex, and it has 5 ports... I think we got it at Best Buy or Office Max!

  20. Thanks for the update, Brooke. I'll worry no more about "what happened to Melody?" and be excited when she is back.

    Boo Hoo. I hope you get back online soon. I miss your posts. By the way, how did Brooke post on your account for you from her laptop. I am always amazed with what the internet can and (cannot sometimes!) do.

  23. Oh, my gosh Melody, you are *still* offline?!! Thank goodness Brooke let us know the problem or we'd all be worried. Or maybe we should worry that you've been taken over by cables! What a nightmare. Hope things get back in order soon!
