This not having an ISP at home is driving me loopy!

I’ve finally found a solution…go back to the crappy ISP, it may be crappy, but it’s better then what I’ve got now which is nada! so…I’ve been talking to the cust svc rep, and I can get my rate locked in for three years. So… cross your fingers, I hope to be online from the house within the next week!

renew! not a fully new contract- for those worried about mercury retrograde. 😉

Extraterrestrial Culture Day/Extraterrestrial Visitor Day
February 10, 2015 in New Mexico
New Mexicans celebrate every second Tuesday in February as “Extraterrestrial Culture Day” after a Roswell lawmaker’s proposal won approval in the House. Sponsor of the memorial, Republican Rep. Daniel Foley, of Roswell, said life on other planets — if you believe in it — surely has its own set of cultural beliefs.
The measure claims extraterrestrials have contributed to recognition of New Mexico. The state has been associated with little green men for more than half a century, starting in 1947 with a purported UFO crash that came to be known as the Roswell Incident.
Memorials express the opinion of the Legislature and do not have the force of law. Only one house must approve them, and they do not require the governor’s signature.
Get the kettle on and set the table for a guest, ET might just be popping round!

Plimsoll Day
February 10, 2015 in the World
Plimsoll Day is set aside to remember Samuel Plimsoll (10 February 1824 – 3 June 1898), a member of the English Parliament back in the day who championed sailors’ safety while traveling the world’s waterways in crammed-full ships. He was instrumental in the amendment of Britain’s Merchant Shipping Act, which came about in response to the then-national problem of dangerously overloaded ships. Plimsoll’s bill, dubbed the Unseaworthy Ships Bill, passed in 1876, and required that a mark be present on a ship’s hull to indicate the waterline at which maximum cargo capacity was reached for the vessel.
Ah, but politics is a wily profession, is it not? For the law merely required that said line – which came to be known as the Plimsoll Line, or the Plimsoll Mark, – be painted on the boat. It did not say the line had to be an accurate representation of the safe waterline position for the ship’s cargo load. That little stipulation didn’t make it’s way into law until 1894.
Today, the Plimsoll Line is universally recognized, and is actually several lines – each one indicating the safe waterline mark in relation to both cargo type and water type (salinity, temperature, ocean region, and season).

Umbrella Day 2015
February 10, 2015 in the World
Umbrella Day takes place on February 10, 2015. The day honors the famous invention to protect against rain or sunlight. An umbrella or parasol is a canopy designed to protect against rain or sunlight. The word parasol usually refers to an item designed to protect from the sun; umbrella refers to a device more suited to protect from rain.
Umbrellas are now a consumer product with a large global market. Umbrellas continue to be actively developed. In the US, so many umbrella-related patents are being filed that the U.S. Patent Office employs four full-time examiners to assess them. As of 2008, the office registered three thousand active patents on umbrella-related inventions.

National Cream Cheese Brownie Day
February 10, 2015 in the USA
Who can resist the heavenly taste of a rich fudge brownie marbled with cream cheese? Its divine combination of sweet and tangy flavors will have you craving more in no time!
The brownie is America’s favorite bar cookie. Although desserts called “brownies” have been around since the 1800s, the cake-like confection we know and love today can be traced back to 1906. Culinary historians credit The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book with the first published recipe for the modern brownie, but this early recipe was far less chocolaty than what we’re accustomed to nowadays. It only called for two squares of baking chocolate!
Today there are hundreds of different brownie recipes. Many incorporate interesting add-ins like peanut butter, walnuts, caramel, peppermint, banana, or (of course) cream cheese. Celebrate National Cream Cheese Brownie Day by enjoying the sweet, rich, and creamy flavors of a cream cheese brownie!
