Its Slooowww

Finally am hooked up and I hope this will be the last time I have to deal with finding a provider that won't eat up my life savings or eat up min. This IS unlimited. while it is very slow it will do. Just happy to be able to get to reading blogs and posting my own without going through all kinds of insanity to even find  it.

I have been keeping busy with more walking and doing outdoor things now that it has warmed up a little.

Met up with a SWT lady from the group I belong to and we have gotten together for lunches and just sitting out in the sun at her camp site at Casino Del Sol.

Today I sprayed weeds as they are popping up like crazy from all the rain we had. 

Hope to have more interesting things to post soon. Just so happy to be able to get on line and read what others are doing. Lots of catching up to do.

Good Night All


  1. What do you use to spray weeds? I hae used chemicals as well as a mixture of salt & vinegar, and neither one is effective.

  2. Glad you are back. One thing for sure is that internet service does not come cheap in AZ. We pay a lot more than we used to. :-(

  3. Hi Gypsy,

    I use Spectrem or something like that. But I have been using it for years and it is great stuff. I tried round up and others also the vinegar & salt never did a thing for the weeds no matter how many times I sprayed. I do a once around and then go back over it again by the next day they are dying or already dead. I buy the ready made stuff since
    I'm sure I wouldn't make it right and I don't like mixing chemicals.

    Hi JMD,
    I'm so happy to be back, using the phone was a pain and I usually couldn't find things more than once without driving myself crazy.
    This internet thing has driven me nuts. I am back to using a lanline and it is much cheaper than all those hot spot things. When I travel I will just have to find free wifi or use the phone.

    1. I use deisel on b-brush that pops up in my yard, cut to ground, spray the stubs. kills the roots.
      Have Verizon for internet, 17.95 month, fast too. Theres one faster and one slower, but this is fast enough for me.

  4. Welcome back... good idea going with unlimited...did you know even satellite internet is NOT unlimited? It's such a rip off if you read the fine print you see that the majority of the G's they give are during the hours of 2-6 AM! Is your weed patch a big area, you could put down weed stop plastic and then mulch it with your favorite mulch...and never have to worry again!

  5. Welcome back to the land of internet. Slow is definitely better than none at all.

  6. Hi Sondra,

    glad to be back. Yes all these hot spots and satellite crap is outrageous.
    My yard isn't huge but it is to big to start removing all the gravel and put down that weed stuff. As long as I keep up with it it isn't to bad and keeps the weed Nazi happy.

    Hi Sandie,
    I am so happy to be back and yes slow IS better than none at all.
