Juno, If your ISP on the Cape is Verizon , they block Eternal September. I had that issue and now use nntp.aioe.org as a news server. Enjoy the beach hope it is less oppressive there than here.

Hi All, I'm home for one week to take care of somethings that need to be done here at home. The Cape was enjoyable, but as hot and humid as much of the East Coast. That is unusual for there. There were some days though when the heat abated in mid afternoon and we were able to enjoy some cool breezes. I did some sewing, but not as much as I had planned. I finished up some throw pillow covers for my oldest daughter's cottage. I also worked on a top but couldn't complete it because I was to busy having fun. My internet connection was a horror to say the least, so in the end I ave up and only used my computer when it was really necessary. While we were gone my son completed his cross country motorcycle trip with only two minor mishaps. He's still flying high from the joy of doing it solo and seeing some wonderful sights. When he completes editing the video he's making about the trip, I'll post it. He took close to 60,000 photo's on a special camera that took a picture every 2 seconds. He has a lot of editing to do. The last time I looked he had reached about 70% of his goal for JDRF. People have been so generous. I think it's about time to say good night to all, I'm tired, it's been a long day. Juno

Hi Juno,
I'm glad that your son has returned home safely from his bike trip. Really, double risk: Motorbike and alone! I'm looking forward for his edited version, though.
Hot and humid at Cape Cod? Are you sure you took the right turn when going there? ;-) Never mind the bad connection, try to live without the computer for a while; remember the olden days when mail took actually up to a week - domestic, that is, and don't mention overseas. If you can't do without, might be sign you are addicted? I have to go for about two weeks in August and I know that I am addicted.
Anyway, have a pleasant time there when you get back, and take care.
U.

There were days when we wondered if we were in the right place. I forgot to mention that one of our sons-in- law took us on an off road trip to the tip of the Cape. The only way to get out there is with a 4 wheel drive vehicle and the tire pressure has to be reduce to a maximum of 11 PSI. The round trip took about an hour.It was just amazingly beautiful. When we go back we will be going out again for a day of, swimming, fishing, clamming and picnicing. I'm looking forward to that. Juno

Hi Juno, Better late than never answering, I am definitely not a computer addict, since this is the first time in a while since I've turned it on.
My middle DGS was on the Cape for a couple weeks, around July 4th, with his girl friend, then on to Maine to her Mom's home. Since she has a job in DC; she began at this place while getting her Masters in Public Health. That's why he is going back to George Washington for his Law degree, instead of Vanderbilt, which is actually higher-ranked. He loves the Cape and maybe one day, I will visit him there. (wishful thinking).
My youngest DS did what your son did when he first got out of the Navy, in the early 80s; except in an older small Alfa Romeo, he bought from a sailor at a good price. I was frantic the whole time, and my siblings were so critical of him for doing "something so stupid." He took his time and really enjoyed it. He returned through the southern part of Canada, but only as far as Wisconsin. He stopped to visit his aunt(my ex's sister) before coming home. He took photos, but with a Polaroid camera, they were popular then. He told me the other day, his older daughter found all the pictures and ked at them, he said she studied each one. Now, she is planning to go into the Navy when she finishes her Associate's degree in what ever she decides. Granted she is 14, and will be in the 9th grade in September. So, we shall see.
I will be looking forward to your son's video when its finished. I've driven to and from El Paso, TX and DC, Norfolk, VA and Tampa, FL several times while living in El Paso, and loved the time on the road alone. But I gave up driving at age 70 when I realized I wasn't as quick at the wheel as in the past. But, we still travel, only Richard does the driving.

I think everyone on the east coast has been suffering from the heat & humidity. At least, we only have had 2-weeks of it; and Houston has only hit the 100% mark twice this year, both in June, which is very unusual.
