Sloooowed Down

Gallifrey guards the new trailer.
I am suddenly in the land of unbelievably slooooow Internet. We couldn't even watch Deadwood tonight because it was too frustrating waiting to it to buffer enough to play (over and over and over again). I called tech support, and they (of course) don't see any problems or congestion on the line. So now I get to spend Sunday afternoon waiting for the technician to show up. We are supposed to have 10 Mb service, shouldn't that be enough to stream two movies at a time?

Spinning was also a challenge for the last two days. Instead of my goal of four ounces a day for each day, I produced zero ounces. I do have 16 ounces done for the first four days, but I may need to reset my goal. After all, it's an endurance race as much as anything and I need to be in it for the long haul (till the Tour de France ends on 7/23).

My one accomplishment of the day was acquiring a very nice used enclosed trailer. With all of our back and forth from Austin to Polson, it doesn't make sense to have to rent a U-Haul every time I need to take more than a couple of suitcases. I managed to drive it home and back it into the drive with no (serious) mishaps. Now I have a way to get all the blue pine and douglas fir lumber home for my building projects!

Tomorrow is our early day at the National Bison Range so I am going to head for bed.
