Amazing...the customer service these days. My answer was real simple...."I'd like to get my COMPUTER hooked up on the InterNet". Her reply was, "Do you want Wire or Wireless?" I was kinda speechless and just said, "Huh?" "DO YOU HAVE WIRE?" she yelled into her buzzing new fangled phone! Oh! Yeah, I have plenty of WIRE, I shouted into my new fangled wireless cell phone." "Okay, we'll be out there in a day or two to WIRE YaUp!" click! No, No, wait...I want WIRELESS....buzzzzzzzzz!

....Do What? I went on to lookin' up BLOG....I'd heard about bloggin' and was thinkin' I'd like to be a Blogger! IT WAS NOT THERE! It should have been somewhere around blocky, bloke and blonde.
So, I made up my own Definition......
BLOG - A place on the InterNet or EnterNet or InnerNet....none in 1961 Webster....a place on the WorldWideWeb... which is based on…as far as I can tell...the Children's Nursery Rhyme, The IttsyBittsy Spider who went WebSpinBerserk after the water spout event flooded the WholeWideWorld.
On the WWWeb where ANYBODY in the whole wide world via their Personal Computer(PC)....also not in my Webster.....share 'Information' (mostly useless ramblings about themselves...speaking primarily of this blogger and this post) with other people known as Bloggers, who also share their ramblings and then want lots more Bloggers who Blog to comment on their Blog.
The Information is sent to somewhere in OuterSpace via WonderWhereWireless wires to this WonderWhereWeb which then spins it off to the intended ReceiversPC via their SecretCode that only they and their InterNetProvider know.....unfortunately, we have learned that the Provider CanNot keep a secret!
I was tellin' HiHoney about the phone call with the LinkUp company and how they wanted to know if we had WIRE! He said, You want Wireless!! That's why you got all that HiTech mess!I know, so why are they asking if we have WIRE?
It's like this, he explained....
I'm guessin' Bubba's BundleUp and LinkUp didn't hear the latest about Texas being way ahead of the rest of the world with this Wireless Thing. I read in the paper that last week, a bunch of New York scientists dug a 10 foot deep hole and found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion, that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
A couple of days later, in California, an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: 'California archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'
Just yesterday , I read in the paper that after digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Cut-n-Shoot, Montgomery County, Texas, Bubba Rathbone, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.
Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless.
PS...Wireless? I don't know about you, but I have a tangle of wires behind my PersonalComputer that makes cooked spaghetti look straight. How they got wireless outta that mess, beats me, especially when even 1961 Webster defines wireless as having no wires.
