We've been MIA for a little while and although I swore I wouldn't apologize every time I disappear for a bit, I do think an explanation is warranted this time.
This is why I've been remiss in my blogging:
We began trying to get satellite internet in early April. The less-than-competent installer who came out used his broken compass to approximate the satellite location and identified the many trees that needed to be cut in order to get a view of the southern sky.
Now, we knew we'd have to cut trees. We purposely selected an antennae site that would track over the future garden so that the trees would not come down in vain.

Time is passing because we have to call LA in order to schedule each visit - and sometimes he just doesn't show. Can you tell I'm annoyed by all this?
