I'm down on the farm

I'm down on the farm in Ventura, Iowa, my hometown. I installed the air conditioners for my grandmother today, fixed a wobbly front step, and got her Quicken working again too. I think the phone company must have upgraded their lines recently, as the computer connected at 50 and 52K when I dialed in. That makes downloading the numerous updates and patches their computer needed a little more reasonable than back when the most we could get was 26.4K.
