1. First of all, I've taken down my little Democratic Icon. I just don't know anymore! Let's see what happens from here to election time.

2.

I went to an eye specialist early this morning for a thorough eye examination. I make sure to go for an examination since I'm a diabetic.

Guess what? I've STILL got 15/20 eye vision! Now do you see why I was an expert shooter on the M60 and M16?! I mean, I was BETTER then most of the guys!! If you ever feel like messing around with Playgirl, DON'T! ;o)

If you ever find yourself in need of a body guard, just give me a call! heeeee

3. Time Warner gets quite a chunk out of my monthly income. They don’t even wait ONE second for a payment from me, because I authorized them from the very beginning, to withdraw from my American Express.

I pay for digital cable service, Road Runner high speed online, high definition TV, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Digital Phone Service, Digital Video Recorder, plus I’m a big time customer for Movies on Demand. I switched from AT&T phone service to Time Warner around 3 months ago, to save money, which turned out to have been a BIG mistake!

It’s been a whole month, plus a week, that internet and my phone have CONSTATLY died on me. This has been happening EVERY SINGLE DAY for over a month, then they come up all by themselves! Ever since I started experiencing this problem, I’ve gone over oodles upon oodles of my cell phone minutes, because I’ve had to call Time Warner every single day. FUNNY how the lines are ALWAYS busy at my local Time Warner! Whenever my internet access and phone dies, they’re lines are busy, also.

I have had ZERO problems when it comes to my TV. I’ve had FOUR different techs come to my house to check things out, and each one does his little thingy, and STILL the problem hasn’t been solved!

I’ve had to call long distance everyday, to talk to a tech, because my local office lines are busy.

Guess what’s so strange? TWO THINGS! First of all, my cousin, who lives in San Antonio, has Road Runner and Time Warner phone, thanks to my recommending them to her a few months ago, has had the same problems as I’m having!

My friend Lolly is a Social Worker with the government, and she told me they're also having the same problem with internet connection. They don't have Road Rummer, but a different internet service provider.

I am very suspecious now! Is this going on all over the U.S.?

Have you experienced problems with the internet?

I know, my little donkey was as cute as could be, but I find I must re-think politics all over again. It's quite possible I'll end up with the donkey!

Well I always vote democrat, but I call my self an independent but you know the democrats always seem to be telling the truth a lot more. It seems to me and there is a lot of time before we have to have all that shoved down our throats
But I hope your having a good day Sunshine! :o)

Were you having trouble with your Internet when you were with AT@T??? Prolly not, so therefore I would had stayed. It best to stay with the service if everything is going well. I had no problems with my services at all, I'm with AT@T for my house phone and Internet, and I'm with Dish Network for TV, no problems whatsoever.

I started out with cable and all the fixin's, and Road Runner. I had never had problems, but then, I switched my phone from AT&T to Time Warner, and that's when my problems with internet access and my phone started. There haven't been any problems with the TV at all.

Yesterday morning, the phone and net were out for about an hour. After that I haven't had any problems with either phone or the internet access.

I just find it strange that not only I, but my cousin who lives in San Antonio, experienced the same problems. What got me even more suspicious was the fact the place where my friend works, had the exact same problem, with one difference, that they're server isn't Road Runner.

If the problem persists, I'll just switch everything to AT&T.

Marksmanship: I'd have figured that nerves had more to do with it than vision. If you can't hold the weapon steady, then you're not going to hit your mark.

And also, should you get the opportunity, try to find an arcade game called Silent Scope. Good times.

Politics: Both parties make me sick. The DemonicRats are blinded with their hatred of Bush, and the RepubliTards are simpering idiots with no desire to lead.

Dems: "GRARGH! HATE BUSH MUST SMASH!"
Reps: "Oh no! We lost a bunch of seats! How?! We moved to the center, shouldn't that give us more votes? Maybe if we abandon our base even more and sell each other out, a few of us can save our jobs!"
Dems: "IF NO CRUSH BUSH WE KILL CABINET!"
Reps: "Durr?"

As for the current nominees, there's no way I can vote for Giulliani (the current frontrunner for the presidential nomination) in good conscience. I didn't trust Clinton during the 1992 primaries, and I was right about him. Giulliani gives me the same feeling Clinton did.

Last but not least, cammies. Never mind the SLP website, start "Savannah-In-Cammies.Com". I know I'd subscribe.

Marksmanship is a combination of both vision and steady nerves, and I’ve got both. If I can drive like a pro in Cd. Juarez, Mexico, believe me, I’ve got nerves of steel, too! :o)

I’ll try and find the game. If you say it’s fun, it must.

I ‘m discovering that politics, especially presidential campaigns, are much like watching a game of hockey, where aiming for the jugular vein with a hockey stick, is the norm.

I’m also fed up with both parties, and trust neither, but I must come to some conclusion, so I can cast one of my most prized possessions, and that’s my vote.

I would never vote for Rudy Giuliani, because if the man can’t be faithful to his first, or second wife, and perhaps someday his third, how can we expect him to be faithful to us? As for Bill Clinton, I think he’s cute. I also think Obama is cute.

As for the cammie world, never subscribe to anything, not even Sexy Legs Playgirl, because it’s all a bunch of bull corn. For real.

I am working on another domain, which I believe you’ll like. In this domain, you will find what Savanah, AKA Playgirl, is really made of.

I think you should replace the donkey icon with one that shows a Donkey, an Elephant, and a question mark.

From what I hear, Time Warner's service just plain sucks. I've only been using them for a month -- why not, I figure, I got a pretty good deal -- and haven't yet really had a problem. I did experience an issue with the TV service, and after a 40-minute hold-time the person I got was happy to help. Happy, because I was the only person that day to call for TV problems. Everyone else was calling for Internet or Digital Phone problems.

I will be a sad monkey when my Internet goes down.

Try to be patient with Time Warner, and let me tell you why.

I've had everything Time Warner has to offer for about 3 years now, except for the phone service, which I added about 3 months ago.

For the entire 3 years, I never had any problems what-so-ever with them, until a month and a week ago.

I kept calling every single day to their 1 -800 number, and they were extremely respectful, and tried to solve my problem.

They recently informed me that they were going to give me credit for the month and week I was out of Road Runner and phone service.

As of yesterday, I haven't had any problems anymore. I'm starting to wonder if they somehow read my complaint about them here in my journal! :o)

I will keep you posted if I continue to have problems or not.

I'm positive that in time, you will find that you made the best choice to go with them.

Perhaps I'll give them a call again, and demand they pay my Sprint cell phone service, they were the cause for my going way over my cell phone minutes! :o)

I am glad you have such good vision....Take good care of your diabetes. You are very young for diabetes and it can be soooo dangerous.

Sounds like Time Warner has a BIG problem, but unfortunately, it becomes yours....and they make sure they get the money....

I used to eat a lot of carrots when I was a kid! I'm serious! :o)

Can't eat them now because they raise my blood sugar terribly.

Yes, Diabetes is a dangerous thing, with horrific consequences if not watched. It runs in both sides of my family, as Cancer does, too.

As of yesterday and today, I haven't had anymore problems. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, because I depend on internet access in more ways than one.

They've behaved quite nicely, and informed me that I wouldn't have to pay for the entire month and week I was out of service.

I have Comcast for my Internet, phone and TV and I have had problems with them lately. Even after they came out I was still having problems. The last 2 days now have been OK though. The day they came out this last time they were next door too because they were having problems. Maybe it has to do with cable wires in general. I had hear that Verizon is looking to or is going to be using cable lines. Maybe with all these companies using the cable lines it is making problems.

Best way to truly make up your mind is to look at each candidate by their actions. Project Vote Smart does that.

It's a neutral site that offers no opinions just lets each candidate get rated and graded by voting records.

Different PACs rate the candidates according to the issues that pertain to them.

NRA rates candidates on gun issues, Education lobbies rate candidates on school spending, etc.

Vote Smart was endorsed by members of all parties.

Internet Voip Phones
As this is what I work in,I can probably tell you the problem in the real details. If you are using a modem that has the phone built into it,specifically Arris Touchstone, get rid of it immediately. It will have to be reset constantly, and it has a lot of firmware problems. If you can get a Motorolla voip modem it will be better. I recommend a router based phone. All voip modem combos go through Sprint. Sprint sucks to say the least. If you are using a router based phone, then your problem is likely that card you are on is overloaded. Every cable modem is alloted a space on a physical card. If that card is full,there will be what is called contention. That will play havoc with a phone. The only thing that can be done is the have the card users split to two cards. Generally unless you local government has a cable committee this is very hard to. Call constantly, be polite, and write letters to a company VP are the best options you have to fix it.

Re: Internet Voip Phones
Thank you so much for this information!

Yes, I do have the modem and phone built together.

I never, ever had problems, but just as soon as I switched from AT&T, the problems began! As I mentioned before, I didn't have any problems with the TV, but I am going to take your advice!

Yes, Sprint does suck, and they are RUDE! I have my cell phone through them.

I've noticed since yesterday, that I haven't had the problem anymore.

What upset me so much was, that they kept sending different tech's over to try and find the problem. There were a total of 4 different techs coming over in less than a month.

One thing is for sure, they were as well-mannered as could be with me! They are going to give me 5 weeks credit for Road Runner and my Time Warner phone.
