Which ISP for DSL? 
<B></B>




Good Morning, ,
Today is Wednesday, June 7

A telemarketer gave me a good laugh today.
I was a bit distracted because I was reading an email at the
time, so instead of putting her on (permanent) hold, I said:
"I don't have a phone, send me an email." 
She apologized as I was hanging up.

If she did send an email, Mailwasher washed it.

Have Fun!

During the session on weather, the instructor wanted to discuss the concept of sublimation, the act of going from a gas to a solid, skipping the intermediate liquid stage. He gave as an example water vapor in the air icing on a windshield overnight to form ice. Wanting to see if the class had understood the concept, the instructor asked if anyone could provide an example of something that went straight from a solid to a gas. He was expecting "dry ice'' as the answer. One of the students blurted out, "Burritos." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ When I was discussing fund drives of universities with a few friends, one told this story: "I graduated from a private school that I didn't like much.

"They've never called back." ______________________________________________________ South Haven, MI, onLake MI _____________________________________________________

Thanks Priss Dear Priss Southwestern's DSL seems to be OK, like most companies' DSL. Check out what Earthlink can offer you in your area. Quite often they act as a re-seller or work through local DSL and are actually cheaper. That way you could stay with them and would not have to change any addresses. Have FUN! DearWebby
