This Is A Test

This is only a test. Had this been an actual emergency, this signal would hve been followed by information....blah, blah, blah. Technology.

Cora has discovered her web camera...she is at this moment talking to Kim and Kylee (Hi, you two, you'll have better luck here than with the video thingy, since the sound does not appear to be working right now...) ! I tried to help, but Cora was unappreciative of my efforts. We have, SO FAR seen the whole family! That has been entertaining for me tonight! Ah, the pleasures of learning new technologies!

Today...and yesterday...and tomorrow and Friday I subbed and...err...will sub for music. I have read stories and coordinated playing CDs, done a little dancing, and in general kept the kids entertained. I have not done much other than that these past few days..hence, fewer posts than my usual managerie!

Not much is on TV, and since Fisher Broadcasting won't lower their prices, Dish cannot broadcast one of our local stations. Those bastards took away my NCIS!!!!! And come a month from now, OUR SURVIVOR! I guess we could try the rabbit ears in the back of the receiver...but, I just haven't gotten to the store for a pair, yet.
The weather here...well, we got TONS of snow in December, plus the REALLY low temperatures, then the last couple days we have had UNSEASONABLY (Bit of an understatement) WARM temperatures. It was in the 50's these past few days(that's more than 10 C for my international readers, right now, at 730PM it is 54 degrees F!). The snow that had piled up and NOT gotten plowed is now either HARD ice or water bent on flooding local streams. Global Warming??? Nahhh...never happened, doesn't exist...
My plans for late January are to attend the decommissioning of the USS Kitty Hawk. My father got excited when I sent him a link that showed there would be a hangar deck tour on the Thursday before the decommissioning...then the bugger went and got himself RSVPed for it! I am now jealous. I have to work those days.
There are still technical difficulties in Cora's Computer Land...wish her luck!
***UPDATE: Cora got it going!***

Yeah you are just jealous. You don't have a web cam.

He might not have a camera, but he can watch some awesome (I mean boring) videos that Eric made and posted on Facebook. Jim, are you technologically advanced enough to have Facebook?

I cant believe that you are jealous of a web cam. I cant wait to get one.
