No, Amanda, you are not the only one who does not have high speed
connection to the net. I still do most of my previewing on my webtv,
while lying in bed propped up on pillows...looking at my 27" tv set. I
like that. I forward what interests me to my computer that still has
Yahoo dialup on it. I can't handle the thought of 40 bucks a month for
a faster connection, 40 more for a cell phone (still don't have
one!!!!!!!!), and whatever else we think we need to speed up our lives.
My husband and I lead pretty bohemian lifestyles, I suppose...no kids,
he writes and teaches, I make metal jewelry and teach, we like to
travel, we love our free summers. Somethings have to go to allow us to
be so free....guess what went!?! I also like previewing on webtv
because I believe I am exposed to less spam and viral yuck that way than
by reading everything on my computer email accounts. Maybe
someday....but I'd rather spend the money on a steak here and there,
lobster now and then, travel, freedom, and my craft. You know the
words...follow the bouncing ball and sing along....
"Oh we aint got a barrel of money, maybe we're ragged and funny, but we
travel along, singin our song, side by side" lol.
