Internet Solution

Tue was a busy day.  We took a trip into Milledgeville to take care of several errands.  We went to the Post Office and upgraded our PO box.  Stopped in at WalMart to pick up several items Judy and I identified while at the CG that would be useful to have. Two of these items are an electric skillet and a two burner hot plate. As nice to have as the items probably are, they were not the most important.

Judy and I both agreed it is imperative that we be able to connect.  So we went back to the Verizon store to take another look and have some questions answered. The young man that assisted us was simply awesome.  He was knowledgeable, professional and he demonstrated a couple of musical apps I could use on my Droid. He also explained the various plans available to us.  The price of the Mifi plan that was explained to me about a week or so ago was $80.00 for 5G. Tue the price was a more reasonable $50.00 and the device was $20.00 with a two yr contract. So now we should be able to connect when on the road.

We also think we may need a wireless fax/printer. I think it may take some more deliberation before we make it a reality.  The Office Max here does carry them in stock. Judy and I looked at a HP all-in-one today. The unit cost $100.00.  I will be looking on-line over the next few days to find some others to compare with the one we looked at today.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. We have always used HP printers with no problem. Three years ago I want a laser printer to do our business documents and the Salesman at the office supply convinced Kathy that Samsung made a better all in one laser printer than HP. I replaced it this year with an HP it was nothing but a pain and not very user friendly.

    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time

  2. We recently purchased a Brother wireless printer (HL-22700W). It was easy to set up and works great. We bought it directly from the Brother website.

  3. We recently bought an Epson "small in One" wireless printer/scanner. We don't need a fax since we don't have a land line. I just scan and email if needed. It works fine and doesn't take up too much room.

    We like our Verizon Mifi just fine....can't be without internet!!
