Sorry I havenīt been participating/commenting as much as usual. Iīd like to say itīs because Iīve been so busy painting. However, itīs because some "crass soul" (well at least it rhymes with what I thought ) has been cutting the fiber optic cable that connects our island with the rest of the world. Sometimes we have no connection; sometimes itīs on again/off again with no warning.
Itīs nuisance enough causing problems with the internet connection, but it also means that there are no ATM machines, no activity in the banks, no cell phones, no long distance, no transactions via credit cards.
Well, what can you expect living at the end of the world.
