    @Bonnie Thomas. My husband and I both have tracfones and they have worked just fine for us in making and receiving calls...which is what we want ours for. We are moving one of our phones over to Consumer Cellular because we can get 1500 minutes a month for the same price we are paying tracfone for alot less minutes, etc. There is no contract with CC either and you can change plans or quit their service at any time. They also have text and data plans if you want that too. Some of the cell phones take really great pictures now days but I prefer to use my camera for this and I really don't have the best camera in the world. But somehow I manage to take some decent pictures of the things I am interested in and that works for me. :)

    Oh, I agree Babs, making and receiving calls with my tracfone is no problem at all.
    ..it's the picture taking that is less than stellar.. I just don't make that many calls and the minutes pile up.

    I renew it yearly for $99 and they give me a mountain of minutes that I'll never use. I want more time and less minutes. Right now I'm looking at over 4000 minutes on the phone, with a renewal in October.

    I did have CC for a short time., but it was costing too much for my purposes.

    Were you happy with CC's service? We are finding we need more minutes on at least one of our phones since we have so much family in other states, etc. So right now CC offered a better value for this ...and I am keeping my tracfone for now until I see how CC works out.

    The service was fine. No problem ...it just cost more .... $20+ a month vs. $8.25 for Tracfone.
    Most of my calls to family I do on my other phone ... on the computer.
    My tracfone is more of an emergency phone than anything else... for traveling/power outages - that type of thing.

    The clouds were thin this morning before the sunrise, but with the mist over the pond I found an interesting view this morning and captured it the best I could.:)

    That's what our tracfone started out as just for traveling and emergencies, but when we moved to our new place we decided to see if we could do without a land line as it was actually cheaper to get two tracfones then one landline. It is working just great for us so far, but I feel we could use more minutes on one of them...therefore CC. Can't use a phone through our laptop because we do not have high speed internet any longer either. The cost just got to be ridiculous on that and we don't have but one option where we live and since the service knows that...they rip you off.

    Gave up the landline phone years ago .... it wasn't serving any purpose at all .. just sales calls.

    I came across a Liverpool "Death Metal" group called "Anathema" recently which I have really got into, their style has changed since their early days, this one features clouds in the video which is why I put it here. "Untouchable Part 1"


    "Untouchable, Part 1"

    And I feel like I knew you before
    And I guess that you can hear me through this song

    And my love will never die
    And my feelings will always shine

    And I know that you just want me to belong to someone
    And I guess that now I'll just be moving on to someone

    But my love will never die
    And my feelings will always shine

    I'll never betray your trust
    I'll never betray your faith
    I'll never forsake your heart
    I'll never forget your face

    There's a feeling that I can't describe

    There's a reason that I cannot hide

    Because I've never seen a light that's so bright

    As the light that shines behind your eyes

    I can see
    This life
    And what you mean to me

    And when I dreamed
    I dreamed of you
    Then I wake
    Tell me what could I do?

    I had to let you go
    To the setting sun
    I had to let you go
    And find a way back home

    This has been a pretty stormy week here. I encountered these clouds as Shannon and I were leaving the vet's office yesterday. It started raining right afterwards, but thankfully, it wasn't anything severe. 20160629_151447_resized.jpg

    I think it has been cloudy in many places. Most of the country seems to be experiencing bad weather at least at times. Yesterday was a very nice day, but today it is rainy and cloudy again. I think the 4th is going to include a lot of thunderstorms so it will be not a very good day. Oh well. What can you do really? Just hope that it clears up in time to do activities I guess..

    I live in Texas and the clouds can be marvelous to look at, especially before a thunderstorm. The clouds seem so tall and become different shades of blue. I especially love the dark, almost black shade of blue that occurs right befoe the rain begins. That shade is the most dramatic.

    The weather has been beautiful here the past couple of days. A little on the hot side (high 70s to low 80s) but with high winds that make it very comfortable outdoors, and in the house too, since a few open windows keeps air moving through the house.

    No cloudy days here in the summer! Only 100 today and the rest of the week in the upper 90's so maybe won't have to have the A/C on 24/7. I'm dreading this months bill.

    It is 95 and HOT here today. Bobby put the ribs out into the BBQ and we changed into our swimming outfits and climbed into the swimming pool to cool off and work on the suntans.
    Barely had we gotten into the pool, and the whole sky clouded over, and then it started raining !
    Where did that come from ?
    Anyway, when we heard thunder, we decided that it was not a good idea to be out in the pool in case of lightning.
    So, here we are, back inside and dressed and it is again sunny, 95, and hot.
    Go figure........
