    Smile I'm back with high speed, YAY!

    Hello all,

    I see lots of new names and faces! As many of you know, I moved from California to Florida in January. I had slow dial-up all this time and couldn't get online much because of it.

    I now live near Chattahoochee, Florida, right next to the south Georgia border. I really like this area, with lots of tall trees, small animals and seclusion.

    I have some updated albums on smugmug, too (should be in my sig line below). Have been accumulating lots of small wildlife shots since I got here (including some brown-tailed hawks living on the property).

    Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. It's great to be back!

    Ann

    Thanks.

    I posted a lot of new shots in my smugmug albums. The first 4 albums are ones created since I came to Florida. www.scenicphotos4u.smugmug.com.

    Nobody offered high speed internet on this road until last month (satellite). I signed up, and then I had to wait another month to get hooked up because they were so busy.

    It takes anywhere from 4-8 hours for the service guy to get it all done! Mine took 4 hours total. The dial-up I was using was so slow, I would get so frustrated that I'd just turn it all off and go do something else.

    Dish Network now uses Wildblue, and they're the least expensive satellite company I found. So glad to have high speed again! It sure makes a difference!!

    Welcome back, Ann. Funny but I thought about you more than usual the past week. (Note for your husband: thoughts related to photography and the forum )
    I will check out your photo's soon.

    Ann,
    Welcome back. I never even thought you weren't posting because of dial-up. I just figured you were still in the honeymoon stage of marriage!!
    Your photos were missed.

    Thanks. Yup, that was SO aggravating. I still was able to get some (non photo) behind-the scenes stuff done, though. Getting up to speed on the contests now. I can finally view the photos. I saw some pretty awsome entries!

    Well, the honeymoon will never be over.

    Ann
