    Where has this month gone? It seems that they no more than come in until they are gone. I have been enjoying this beautiful weather we have been having, aside from the wind, which has been exceptionally strong. As the old saying goes “Make hay while the sun shines” has been coming true in this area, it seems that everyone is either cutting, baling or caring for it in some manner.

    Have you ever wondered why it is if we are just a day late paying a bill, they charge us extra or discontinue our service, but if they cannot provide the service we are paying for, they do not provide us with a credit? For the last three weeks, my internet has gone down for at least a day and all they can say is “we are working on the problem.” I wonder if that will work the next time I can’t pay the bill?
