Best Laid Plans...........

Without going into personal details for an explanation, we moved out of the house where we've been staying since our arrival in Philippines six months ago; things were just not working.

The only negative from the move is the change in Internet connection. Unfortunately, Sky Cable does not have service in this particular barangay. That out an immediate stop to cable and huge speed internet.

We found other companies that do business in this area, but they're not as good as Sky.

For cable, we changed over to Fil Products. Hopefully they'll connect in another day or so. Fil Products does have high speed in other areas, but not here. At least they do have cable TV, so they're one step above Sky.

For Internet, we've had to get DSL from Globe. We didn't get the fastest speed's a long story. I've run a speed test and we're getting about half what we're supposed to get. Of course, when I go thru a VPN it gets turtle speed. Looks like Netflix is out of the question.

Needless to say, my New Year's plan for the blog has been disrupted. Back to the drawing board.
