That is kinda what is happening to me, I have a different Satellite TV provider than my internet provider. My Satellite provider is Shaw and it's actually located out west. It is also far superior to my internet provider, but Shaw can't find internet areas where I live that are not completely locked up by the 2 major internet providers. The reason they found a satellite provider is because they were able to purchase an independent satellite provider and purchase that company. I'm getting a wee bit snobby in my old age and I want to purchase stuff from Canadian companies that make their stuff in Canada and employ Canadians. I don't care what that employee is, religiously, colour of skin, or orientation, I just want them to be Canadian or at the very least be on an application to become Canadian. Shaw's call centre is located in Canada, so when I do call I am speaking to someone who basically has the electronic devices I have in my home. The other 2 companies outsourced their call centres to countries that the employees do not have the electronic devices we commonly take for granted in their homes. They are reading from scripts provided to them so if you have a problem they don;t have a script for, the call gets rerouted back to Canada. There is a trick to that though, all one has to do here is select the French language option and your call stays in Canada because the French employees have to also be able to speak English. Now I may be getting snobby, but I will not lie and say I am French. I know to some that may be weird but I do have scruples and a moral line I absolutely refuse to cross.
I did manage to find a time when the internet was working fine and I did get a lot of Sims4 stuff uploaded.
We usually have a nest of bunnies somewhere in our back yard every spring, it's just that this one time I forgot to make some noise before opening the deck gate for Jake. Maybe a week or so ago Dave saw a racoon in our back yard and that is one animal that I don't want anywhere near Jake.
I also want to share some really happy news, for the last 3 years Jake has tested positive for lyme disease, but hasn't actually got the disease. The first year he also tested positive for ehrlichia, which is also a tick related disease. This year Jake tested negative for both diseases. Somehow his body successfully destroyed them both and I just don't know how to describe what a relief that is to my peace of mind.
On a sad note his stuffed duck is now minus one wing.......lambchop met with a grisly fate and we had to dispose of her. Any of his stuffed toys that had plastic eyes are now blind.....not to worry he didn't swallow the eyes, just tore them off and spit them onto the floor.
On a hilarious note, that giant stuffed dog, Jake tried to lift it up to either toss it or swing it around He failed I think that's why the duck now only has one wing
