Humbug!

Oh noooooo!

It seems I’m having trouble with my house internet which I hope to resolve today! My best writing comes early in the morning, especially when I am in my pajamas and fuzzy slippers. My wireless connection has not been working. So, I thought maybe it was my router which has served me so well for a few years now. My first thought was that perhaps it was time to replace it. Luckily, I already had a brand new one in the wings. I hooked it up but to my dismay it doesn’t seem to work. My only other logical explanation is that the internet that runs to the rectory from the parish office is not working correctly. When I looked at the system this morning it was obvious from the starting point that the signal is NOT coming to the house.

It behooves me that I along with so many others rely so completely on our gadgets. Technology is a wonderful thing but I rely on it so much. When it doesn’t work properly then I become an animal ready to rip off heads. Is this what I’ve become. Simply….yes. I clearly recall when CD music disks came out and I swore I would never buy into that technology. HA! Before I knew it I had four CD players in various locations. Today I look at the boxes of CD’s that I never play and now CD’s are going out of style. With the coming of downloaded music, why should I buy CD’s. More cost efficient for sure. But now I’m hearing that LP’s are coming back because the richer, fuller and deeper quality sound they create is not duplicated by my high technological digital music.

With the boom of computers, I swore I would never own one. And now, looking back I have had several. I’ve settled with my Mac, which I really enjoy. But with the Mac I also have the iPad, iPhone and iPod. So when the internet goes out I’m screwed. Everything I do is through my computer. I may have to learn how to write again because besides my signature, I’m not sure if i still can.

One thing that is constant is my religious beliefs and convictions. This always pulls me away from all the distractions that I’ve created. the secular world is something I complain about but I am just as much to blame too!
