While I’m not a huge kei$ha fan, I love the mash up of all the old Star Trek episodes.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years. It doesn’t feel like 10 years and so much has happened and yet many things have stayed the same. I’m incredibly lucky to have married someone who I love to spend hours talking with, makes me laugh and if I do say so myself looks very good. My best friend and only person I trust everything to in life. I look forward to many more years. Happy Anniversary Craig.

We cancelled our land line in the beginning of May, bringing us to just using our cell phones. After reading a friend’s experience with the new AT&T MicroCell, we decided it was a good option for us. Even though we live close to the interstate and in a city area, we still have mediocre coverage inside our home.
The MicroCell is $149.00 as a single cost. It uses you’re existing minutes and hooks up to your internet connection which does not have to be an AT&T specific connection. We have Comcast and it’s hooked up via the cable modem. The setup does take about an hour for it to register and set up the MicroCell to be a tower in your home. It’s secured and only available to the numbers you program into it via the website. You can add up to 10 lines to be authorized. Only 4 can be on it at the same time though.
- We now have 5 bars of service everywhere in our home, even in the basement two levels down and in the parking lot
- We were able to fully get rid of a land line and save $80.00 a month
- Recently I’ve had a call get dropped
- We have a slight echo/delay on some calls
- We’ve also recently had static / air noise on calls, the other user doesn’t hear it but we do

Unbeknownst to us the spare bedroom at our rental had a taxidermied bear under it. Craig and I had been in the room several times before my sister in law arrived and didn’t notice it. Then when she arrived and we went to make the bed, there was silence, a gasp and a scream. Of course this was all happening at night and thus making the “not what you expected” factor rise a lot more.
Before we left Craig and Kerry took some fun pics. Kerry has been vegan since the start of the year, so it seemed perfect to have her reading her book, “Simply Vegan”.

Of all the reasons to come to Maine this is by far my favorite; biking the carriage trails of Acadia. The hills are deceiving and I’m in awe of people who just fly by me. Today we did a 9 mile loop with a stop at Jordan Pond House for some pop overs.
Route: We parked at Bubble Pond, headed up to the Jordan Pond loop, went by Jordan Pond House, then around the mountain, down the backside of Eagle Lake and then back up to the Bubbles parking area.
Observations along the way:
- I bike up hills at 3-4 mph
- Stopping for longer than a minute after mile 5 garnered much longer start ups
- 65 degree weather and cloudy is perfect for me for biking
- Pack a small point and shoot camera
- Get an extra battery pack for the iPhone
- Listening to the Crystal Method for most of the trip seriously kept me moving?
- First ride of the season, 9 miles
- Did not have to stop on the hills, just went slow and steady
- Did not stress about hills, but accepted them and chose to conquer them
We managed to time our ride perfectly again to bump into the horse and carriage teams leaving the stables with their passengers. Each group waved to us and said Hi.
As always I loved the ride, had a great time and wish I could do it every weekend. A slightly easier version would be nice everyday to get to work.
We had fun later in the trip where we seemed to be the only ones on the trail and we shot some video. Craig is going to be compiling it into something fun to watch and I’ll post when he does.
