ALL the news is good!
In my rant of a post on December 4th, I carried on at great length about our poor Internet service out where we live. Well, I have no clue if they saw my post or not, but within a few days we had our first service call to the house, ever!

After about 20 minutes he left.

Good thing I like fountains, huh?
Fireworks are legally sold 2 times a year (per Title 25, Subtitle 1, Part V, Chapter 53 of the Laws of Puerto Rico, 2007). June 1st through July 31st and November 15th through January 10th. I never saw any signs of… Continue reading
