No Cricket for me :(

Looks like I’m stuck with Verizon until I find something else that works out here with unlimited internet access.    I tried his out the Cricket at home the other night and it took 10 minutes just to load the program.  Another 5 minutes just to get to my emails.  I knew right then I would never be able to upload any photos for my reports.  Meanwhile, I’ll borrow T-Jay’s Cricket Broadband for when I get close to my 5GB limit. It worked great while I had it at work in Manassas yesterday.  Oh well, I tried.  On to my mission to find a unlimited replacement for Verizon.

We had an incredible thunderstorm last night.  I was trying to get some photos of the lighting out of my bedroom window, but had no luck of catching any of it.  I’ll have to play with the settings on my camera.

This morning I took these…


Sweet peas…..I can’t believe how fast they came up.  It took only two days for them to sprout.


That’s my tomato plant going crazy.  It’s the first one that I planted.


First strawberry blossom.


I have no clue to what this is. ^^^^^ Any ideas?


First blossom on cucumber and the first on the green beans on the right. It’s amazing what 12 hours will.  I sometimes think that I could sit there and watch them grow. :)


  1. Tango! Your plants look great! I'm so proud of you! Ah, don't sweat the net thing, Alltel just canceled my contract and now I'm searching for net services too. The tower charging Alltel for the roaming fees that got me canceled is-you guessed it-verizon! Looks like I'm gonna stuggle with a 5GB limit with verizon too. Is that 5GB a day or a month?

  2. you. I so glad that I haven't killed any of them.
    Ha, I wish it was 5GB a day!! That's 5GB a month and it goes very fast. The crappy thing is that the program that tells me how much I've used up is two days behind. Right now I'm on pins and needles until the 8th. That's when I go back to 0.

  3. So, what's it do when you get to the 5GB? slow way down or cut you off?

  4. mmpaints....Ha, I WISH they would cut it off at 5 GB. They told me that they didn't have the capability. I know they are lying because the cut it off before. After I get to the 5 GB limit, they charge me .25 per MB...the rat bastards!! A couple of months ago I received a bill for 899 bucks.

  5. hon - i can't believe how well you are doing on your plants!

    and would you believe i fell down the basement stairs on thursday night...cracked my ribs, broke my baby toe and banged up a whole pile more of me???

    i just can't seem to mend...this has been an awful spring. i am trying so hard to be positive but it is hard with trying to heal from the surgery in march, the constant noise next door, the lawyers, the property disputes and now this fall....oh hon...i promise to be on the network more often soon....but i am really hurting and trying to focus all energy on healing.

    stay on top of those gorgeous plants - you are reaching and teaching others that they can do it too! i am sooo proud of you!

  6. Kymber...I'm so sorry. It's seems to be just one thing after another on your end. I hope that you heal fast!!

    I almost killed most of my plants on Saturday. Got home after work and all the plants were laying down. It was a sad sight. I was almost in tears. I have to remember to water them more on these hot days, especially since they are growing on straw and the straw doesn't hold water too well. Luckily they bounced back by morning after I watered them. I have been using the meter gadget faithfully ever since.
    I've been thinking about you and the lawsuit. How is that going? You must be pissed off 24 hours a day. I really feel for you. I can't even imagine what you are going through. The rat bastard!

  7. The mystery plant kind of looks like sweet basil to me.

  8. mmpaints...I made a's 5 cents per MB not 25.


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
