Let's hope for good this time? Sheesh!

Long story, but over the past weeks they've tried everything to fix this internet connection issue for me, and eliminated many things as each time they tried something different it didn't work.

I've MISSED you guys and hated not being online all this time. Today, a young guy from the cable company came out and he replaced everything, even down to fishing new cable line downstairs through to up here. As usual, when he left everything was working. And as usual, it then crashed right away. So...... he comes back at the end of the day and ends up going out to our back alley where the cable box for the street is, and puts in a new cable line temporarily for me over the snow banks and up to the house. He hooked it up and now everything is SO FAR working again. Next summer they'll have to come out and rewire it all underground for us. In the meantime we'll have to be super duper careful not to catch the cable line with a shovel, or later a lawnmower. Good grief.

This young guy was so helpful, so courteous. When he left tonight he said if this thing goes down again not to even call the cable company, just call him! He left me his phone number. Cool huh?

This had better work, I'm sick of having no internet! Thanks to you all for hanging in there with me, I promise that as long as this connection stays up I'll be checking in on your blogs over the next couple of days. I've got TONS of catching up to do, and 150 or so emails to sort through! (Kate, Tracers and Lexy I see some from you all, I'll get to them pronto)


On the osteoarthritis thingy: last weekend I talked to a pharmacist and he said it could very well be the sulphate in the Glucosamine Chondtroitin Sulphate OR it could be the Glucosamine itself that was making me sick. So sister Pammie spotted a jar of Glucosamine liquid, one tsp. a day (instead of 3 pills a day) and I've been taking it without any problems whatsoever. It will still be a few months before I can see if it's helping though. And in the meantime a good friend of mine (thanks Bob!) has told me that Shark Cartilage helped him extremely quickly (he noticed a difference within days!) so if the Glucosamine doesn't help with the ongoing pain, I'll be trying that next.


Okay! Went out during a snowfall today and shot some pics of sister Pammie's doggies. Such cuties!



MISTY CLIMBING THE SNOWBANK (the one almost as tall as me)

And near the top, she loves laying in it and burying her face in it to eat the snow:


(At the back door) Can we go in the house now Auntie???


I hope you all had a good Valentine's Day too, it's never too late to send love so I'm sending you some now!

Okay folks I'm not going to take any chances, I'm hitting "send" while I can. This is a long weekend for us here in Alberta, we have a Monday holiday called "Family Day" so I'll be around until Tuesday, hopefully doing a lot of online catching up.

Take good care of each other, and until next time..........

Love Jude
