  1. A new young neighbor recently stopped by to find out what to use to connect to the net. Apparently the real estate agent never mentioned that no company will come down our dirt road to install cable so the poor thing was confused. As I explained the option of satellite she asked, "Well, what is that thing across the road in the orchard?" I wracked my brain trying to think of the "thing" in the neighbors orchard. All I could think of was the old outhouse that's been slowly falling apart for the past three decades. And then I had my "ah ha" moment. "Oh, that. You're far too young to know what that is. That's a ham radio antennae. No, you can't use that for the internet."
