looking for a few good ideas

Now we're cooking with gas

The phones are still off this morning, but at some point during the day they come back to life.

Josh the man from Cox Communications came back and took some more readings and tried a few other tricks, but to no avail - we still have either Cable TV or internet connectivity through the cable modem, but not both. A further appointment has been made for a more experienced technician to come out on Tuesday morning.

Tonight I cooked a meal using the gas stove. This is the first time I've ever used gas to cook. Let me tell you something: I'm never going back. You can't make me!

Gas cooking is cool.
