Got a call last night from a survey firm. I love answering surveys so I agreed. About 30 seconds into the call I realized it was a research firm hired by AT&T to find out why I left that company and switched to Vonnage. My favorite question: What can AT&T do to get you to return as a customer? At first I was going to say "nothing." But then a little light bulb went on and I said, "I'd like the CEO of AT&T to come to my house and personally apologizing for the high cost of his phone service." There was a long silence on the other end. Did you get that, I asked. Oh yeah, she replied. Well so far no sign of the man. I should look him up so I'll recognize the dude when he arrives. Like that is going to happen in my lifetime. It was sort of fun.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
