Oh what a morning…

It is cold here this morning.  It was about 15 when I got up but  It has warmed up some now.  I still  have snow on my car from yesterday.  The snow didn’t amount to much, about 1 and 1/2 inches.  More snow up north of here.  It is only 6 more days till the first day of Spring.

My telephone service is out  this morning.  Thank heaven for a cell phone.  I have to keep in touch with my family as several family members are going through health issues right now.  I switched from Comcast to iTV-3 about a year ago.  The customer service from Comcast was very poor.  I like iTV-3 for their customer service.  The worst thing about them is that the telephone service is sometimes sporadic.  That is irritating!  Would I go back to Comcast?  NO!!  Not even for those promised $200 visa cards I keep getting in the mail from them.  To me the most important thing about a cable company is customer service and reliability.

Oh, Oh, just as I am sitting here typing this the telephone service is back up so I guess I will quit complaining and just thank God for this beautiful sunshiny day.

  2. It's been a long, cold winter, for sure! Mother Nature teased us yesterday with 70 degree warmth and today's high is in the 30's. Not time to put away the sweaters yet!

  4. We had cable and Internet thru Comcast....and I totally agree with you....VERY POOR customer service. We had our cable disconnected and would love to the Internet, if we can find another option in this area. We had a "light dusting" of snow there this morning, too. It looked kinda like powdered sugar had been sprinkled all over the rooftops and ground!!! HOPE you have a great day!!!

  5. Thank you, Beth, you are so sweet :) I'm happy you have got your phone back again! Here, in Madrid, we have a warm day. A bit cloudy but it's a good day, anyway. In a few minutes I am going for a walk in our next countryside. Hope you have a very good Thursday, Beth.

    Greetings.

  6. Beth, I love my land line...I will never get rid of it. I hate poor service, of any kind. I pay my bills on time , so I expect good service always....not that I get it mind you. Too much flaky technology and not enough trained human service. :):) Hope you get a warm up, it's pretty here today but oh so cold. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  7. Glad your phone is back up and working and that you like the new TV service. It's feeling a little more like spring around here. The sun is shining and the snow is melting. So it's a great day.

  11. The snow missed us this last time--hallelujah! Glad your phone service is back...we have those issues out here, and one customer service man told me --What did you expect when you moved to the middle of nowhere? What???? I cancelled with that company. lol

  12. Beth, it's amazing about all the snow you guys are getting! We gave up our phone line years ago. These companies charge WAY too much money for all of it. Stay warm.....maybe in 6 days, it will all miraculously disappear.....maybe:)

  13. Very VERY - did I say very? windy here and it makes the beautiful sunny day not so nice after all, but it helps to blow the cobwebs out of my head! What can be better than snow? Wind!

  14. I think good customer service will make or break a company. My phone could go out for days , I rarely call anyone, I hate the phone and you couldn't pay me to have a cell phone. My husband has one, he likes talking on the phone:)

  15. I dumped Comcast years ago. I wish they would leave me alone!
    Just hanging around today. Cold and snowy outside. I'm staying inside. I am very wary of the large corporations.

  16. I said goodbye to Comcast years ago. I'm wary of large corporations. Cold and snowy here. I'm staying in because I can.

  17. sometimes life can be hard, but it's still good. i don't like to talk on the phone, i'm not sure why. i do a bit of communicating with texts, emails and facebook!!

  18. Good customer service is everything to me. Comcast just merged with Time Warner Cable (our cable company). I think this might be spelling double trouble because Time Warner doesn't have very good customer either. ha ha - I think we're both in trouble! Oh, I have a new blog post.

  19. You are blessed, Beth. We got 15-20 centimeters of snow here in Montreal yesterday, which will take about a week for the city to clean up!

  20. We've gone back to chilly, but not too bad. I had the back door open part of the afternoon. I can't complain.

    Love,

  21. I have a cell phone, but mostly use it for other things, email, texts, internet. My, how some things change, and some never do.

  22. We had alot of rain and then snow and ice. Everything looked like when the freezer needs to be defrosted and it was sure hard to shovel and clean the cars off. It was nice to see the sun today and I was able to take the dog for a nice walk this evening after dinner.

  23. Oh dear, not good when the phone is dead. That happened to me today but all of a sudden it came right. We have to have a landline to connect to our computers, or we could go totally wireless.
    Not many days now.

  26. Here in England, all my telephone, interenet and TV comes through Sky, Beth, all my previous providers were short on good customer service, ... but I am happy with Sky... The sun in shining here and I'm off out into the blue yonder soon. Have a great weekend and I hope the weather is not to sporadic with sunshine. :-) xPenx

  27. So interesting Beth....what would we do without cell phones to keep us all connected, especially during a difficult time! I was checking out at Target yesterday and the check out person said to me, "everyday is a beautiful gift from God." I thought that was such a beautiful thing for her to say....just randomly...I replied, "you could not have expressed this more beautifully." Isn't it funny, how someone you don't know, can make you happy by a casual comment.....I just loved that! Have a great weekend!!

  31. Can you imagine how it was way back when there was no telephones, I wonder what Alexander Graham Bell would think if he could see how far his telephone has come.............everyone and his dog has a phone nowadays and we can take our phone with us and not just have a phone in the house
