WooHoo! Faster, cheaper and more Internet

This was the indoor unit I used since July 2006, when I returned home from West Africa, with great success. The experts though, (read: my children) said it was slow
This nifty gadget is the new receptor for my Internet. It is erected on my roof and has an indicator light which is visible at night
Readers of my blog may recall that I’ve said I’ve been “off-line” for a time while I had my Internet server changed. Previously I had a very good server but it was very expensive and if my husband was home (which he was for 8 months this last year) then we risked running out of bandwidth before the end of the month.

I now have lots of bandwidth and pay half the price of the old system and am as happy as anything. I can visit other blogs to my heart’s content and surf whenever I want to.

Marx and his assistant, Petrus worked quickly and neatly when they installed my unit


  1. Jo, I am new to the blogging scene, and it was recently recommended to me to read your blog. I follow Lynda's blog (who I believe you recently met). Just wanted to tell you I visited today and will become a follower of your blog, as I enjoyed it very much.

  2. |Hi Jackleen, welcome to the blogging scene and to my blog, Thanks fr your kind words. Yes, what a blessing it was for me and Lynda to finally meet. Thanks for following my blog. I'm popping over to yours right now.

  3. Jo, yes we are "m"s in Egypt. I do not publicize it because it is not really looked upon nicely. But DH is a teacher here in an American school as well. He is also on the Board of a Sudanese school. Will probably post some blogs on this soon. Thanks for popping over to my blog.

  4. Ah! Wonderful. My dh is in the Sudan at the moment. He's been there for three months and is due out on leave (back home) here on the 15th June. He returns on 25th June - I'm hoping to visit him sometime this year. Blessings.


Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate your feedback. Jo
