A section of phone cable near my house self destructed (although I blame the road paving work done very poorly near by. They had to come by and dig out the man hole covers and I defy you to actually follow the very wobbly yellow line).
Anyway, some of my phone lines and my DSL line were down for the count and were out for several days. Ironically, I since I was taking my sweet time checking out the Food Blog Award nominees I hadn't yet voted (although I had narrowed the field). Oh well. They are all winners in my book.
