My home internet connection is down, again. It won't work. Little red and green blinky lights on the modem, just like last week. They had assured me that everything was fine and working then, so this week's outage was, of course, a complete surprise. Last week was a total customer service cluster fuck. Three phone calls to three different departments and here's what I learned.
If you open a service ticket for static on the line and one for ...
LinkFrogging...on stranger tides.
High School – 10th grade
In the Fall of 1986 my family and I moved to New Canaan, CT after a 5 year stint overseas in Saudi Arabia. I was 15 years old. New Canaan is the epitome of a small New England town.

Being a big believer in the 'the happy accident' , I lit upon this little gem I was sliding images around on my computer monitors.
A fun design that needs to be made into a skate deck, or t-shirt or a sticker, or something, or...

Our blog grew up and became a website! We're so proud!
