Mountain Time

It constantly amazes me how narrow minded people are.  They are unable or unwilling to expand their minds to accept what they cannot envision.
I live in the Mountains in a Ghost Town with a population of 49.  We have no home mail delivery and have to go to the General Store in the closest town to pick up our mail at a Post Office Box.  Hokey, I know.  (no Deliverance banjo music please.)
I received a message from Paypal to update my account so they could send me my new up-to-date credit card that I never use.  They informed me that they could not mail it to a P.O. Box.  Now, how did I get this first one to begin with???   Hmm.
OK.  So I go on the website and try to change my address.  They won't take the address with the P.O. Box and won't take it without the P.O. Box.  As frustration sets in, I decided to just take the easy way out and E-Mail them with my question. 
Sometimes doing things on the internet is not as easy as doing it other ways.
I have found that people who live in large cities cannot grasp the concept of the small town ways.  Our grocery store is a 25 mile round trip.  To arrive at a "City", it is a 100 mile round trip.  (What!!!  No Starbucks!!!)
Not the life for everyone.  Which is why it is ours.

I could live anywhere as long as I have high-speed internet.

Your blog looks nice, even so it would be far better if you’ll be able to use lighter colors too as a professional design. This will make sure that a lot more readers come to check it out.Informative post by the way!
