Time to give you linkage now.
One of these days, I’ll have internet access at work again so I can give you these during the day, but in the meantime, I have to do links at night and provide you with news when I can. This is so silly, but Broadview Networks which is the worst phone company in the World continues to be incompetent. Today, I received a phone call instructing me to call in an “inside wiring request” so I can add my secondary line back on my phone. When I did, the person on the other end was confused and did not put in the request properly. Then I got another phone call telling me I had to rewire the office myself. I’m not a phone installer. After going back and forth, the person said he would tell the repair to put in the proper request. Now I don’t know if this is going to happen. I’m going on a week without internet access at work and this is just out of hand. Besides providing you with links, I also use the internet for business and clients cannot reach me until I get home. I want to thank Broadview for losing me thousands of dollars of business and being totally uncooperative. I will continue to pound the company here until my service is properly restored and then I will switch to another provider.
Enough of my rant. Now let’s do the links.

I’ll stop there for now as I have to head out to run an errand, plus I wanted to get these up before Inside the NFL premiered on Showtime. I’ll give you a review of the show later tonight.
I will also give you more links later.
