I Rock with Costa Rica

I was driving through the great metropolis of "Buffalo, Texas" and I saw actual buffalo out in a pasture. Of course, I had to slam on the brakes, back up and take a picture. Now don't get me wrong, I've seen buffalo before but this just struck me as appropriate and kind of funny. Hey, when you spend thirteen hours on a road trip, the little things and the humor of it all is all you have sometimes.
I will say that the last two days I haven't been able to eat. I did take a hunk of Jo(e)'s "Healthy Bread". I'm starting to believe that it has the properties of Manna. You eat a little bit and can go the rest of the day without eating again. I bought some more ingredients so I can make another batch, with some slivered almonds and blueberries.
So you might be wondering about the title of this Blog. Well, my Wonderful Child bought me a Sirius Radio for Christmas. Of course, installing it by myself was a nightmare. I finally got it in and partially working but had to call the help center for another activation signal. I got a wonderful girl down in Costa Rica who walked me through everything, was extremely friendly and very helpful. I can honestly say that I have talked to many, many, many customer service people who are based somewhere other than the United States (and some that were based here) and she was the exception to the rule (The rule being that they are rude and unhelpful or unable to communicate in English). So with the help of this great lady, I got it installed, hence the title of the blog.
WonderGirl is at Cheerleading practice. She was not really happy about spending four hours at school on the first day of Christmas break. I was though. I have to find a box big enough for her gift and get it wrapped. Let me confess, I am a gift bag kind of person. My patience with wrapping is non-existent. After I pick her up, I plan on spending the rest of the day reading a non-thinking book by J.D. Robb.
