Upgrades at Peaceful Acres

Within the last few days, we have been able to make a couple of improvements to our home in Missouri.

It’s difficult to see on the picture unless you enlarge it, but we have a HUGE deck, all across the back and around part of the side of the house, as well as a top deck over part of it. It’s been challenging to find someone willing to do some repairs and stain the whole big thing. That was finished on Saturday, and what a relief!!

We moved into this new home (built from our own plan) in 2006. Since that time, we have had no option for efficient internet service. Just recently a company has laid fiber optic cable in our subdivision, and Saturday we went from 1.50 MPs (with DSL) to 100 MPs (upload AND download). I am ecstatic.

It was quite funny when I called CenturyLink to cancel the DSL. The guy asked me, “I see you have been a loyal customer since 2000. What would make you switch after 20 years?” I explained that the ONLY reason I had been with CL for that long was because I had no other option. So now that I can have 100 MPs compared to 1.5 MPs (on a good day, which was not often), why would I NOT switch. He hurriedly helped me cancel the account.
