Emmy.... 12 hours today, 10 yesterday, etc. On June 2nd it was holiday here and I spent the day working (11 hours, without a break). I'm spending my time at the office and it's quite hard to find some time for myself. I'd like to say I am on posting strike, but that's not true. Sad

I've been killing time at one of my neighbors cleaning up tools and things while they fix one of their race cars.

I don't even think i can crawl into the window of the car. At least they won't even let me try to crawl in to help them bleed the brakes! My friends son drives this car. Will try to find a picture and get permission to post it.

Had it rough last night watching: 1) women's college softball playoffs, 2) a professional women's basketball game and 3) watching Shakira and the other girls singing on the opening og the World Cup! Tried to find some women's beach volleyball to watch with no luck. Now watching F-1 practice from Canada.

Emmy, I know that all work and no play is not good, but all the extra hours are very helpful, because working when the office is closed to the public let me do the same job I would make in two or three days. While when the office is open, my job is always interrupted by phone calls, people, etc.

As for the house, no luck yet. I'd like to find a house in the country and far from downtown, but... there is a BIG problem: most of the houses out of town do not have the fast internet connection!!!! And I cannot live without internet!!!!
(My town is not fully developed like the big ones bad air )

Our area was like that until 2/3 yrs ago and they sent round a survey team to ask all the residents in the village if this internet connection was available how many would use it. After that they had a mobile unit set up in the village and if you were going to sign up you had to sign then to prove you would use it. We were lucky because the number of people who signed just made it past the cut off mark and we got the connection.

But we still cant get cable TV which people say is better and cheaper seems because its a small village its too costly to link it up.

Still living in a small village does have lots of nice advantages and the big supermarkets are not too far away either-when you have access to a car. So I do have the best of both worlds.
