Cincinnati Bell’s high speed internet is Zoomtown.. it’s DSL.

Well if you were thinking about getting it, DON’T!! It sucks. When they first offered it here in Cleves, we were so excited! For awhile it was good.. then about 2 months ago we noticed it getting a bit slower… didn’t think too much about it. It progressively got WORSE!

First we returned the 10 year old modem to the store, thinking that was the problem..but NOPE.

Scott called them a few times after doing numerous speed tests on Zoomtowns website. We were getting less than 1 megabyte per second (mbps) download speed. The upload speed was fine. So they suggested we unplugged the router (we have a network) and ran the internet straight into his computer. Still under 1 mbps. We should be getting 5mbps. They finally said that they saw Data loss on our connection and they would get back to us the next day. We waited a few days and nothing.

We are now signed up to get Time Warner Roadrunner. They come on Wednesday of next week. We are switching the phone to them too from Cincinnati Bell. We are supposed to be getting a download speed of 15 mbps! YAY! I can’t wait!

We got home from work tonight and got online and our download speed (via the zoomtown speed tests) range from 60.1 kbps to 84 kbps!.. WHAT the HELL is that Cincinnati Bell???????

I am so glad we are getting rid of them!...

I will let you know how Roadrunner is next week..

Cincinnati Bengals

My views on the news conference that took place here in Cincinnati on Tuesday, January 4th, 2011 with the Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis and their owner Mike Brown.

“This isn't his team. It isn't your team.
It is The Family’s team
Yesterday’s news conference made
that plainer than ever.

“This isn't his team. It isn't your team. It is The  Family’s team.” 

That one sentence explains exactly what is wrong with the Bengals and why they keep losing football games.

The Bengals organization have great coaches and very talented players on the team. Mike Brown and his “Family” do indeed own the Bengals, but the Cincinnati Bengals should “belong” to the City of Cincinnati and it's FANS!! 
Every sports team has an “owner”. What good is that owner or that team without FANS?

NOTHING that's what!!

Art Rooney was the founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Rooney family still owns the Steelers today.   Ask ANYONE including the Rooney family “who do the Steelers belong too”?

Your answer will be “The City of Pittsburgh AND it’s fans… it’s our team.

The Rooney’s know it, the players know it, the coaches know it and the FANS know it. This makes for a winning football team. Even when the Steelers are losing…they are a winning team because their fans stay strong and loyal no matter what!

Once a Steeler fan….. Always a STEELER FAN!

Maybe if Mike Brown would give the Bengals BACK to the City of Cincinnati and the few loyal fans it has left, they’d find out what a winning team feels like!.

After all.. They are THE CINCINNATI BENGALS.. not the Brown Family Bengals…..

So I say to all the people of Cincinnati, let Mike Brown and his FAMILY know that the Cincinnati Bengals BELONG TO THE PEOPLE of CINCINNATI!!!!

I feel sorry for the football fans in Cincinnati.

I live here now.. but have always been and will always be.... A Pittsburgh Steeler FAN.........

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I know I did. It was great to spend time with family!

I am really going to try to blog more to hopefully increase traffic to my website.

I think I almost forgot how to blog! I had a terrible time with inserting the photo and formatting! I REALLY need to do this more so I can stay on top of my HTML!

I got a new lens for Christmas. I've not had much time to play with it, but I did shoot this "self portrait". I've added a few new pictures to my site including this one, so if you are bored.. check them out!
