Another New Beginning.

Well! AOL have just lost a customer. Tomorrow will be my first day working from home and my first job will be to sort out a new Internet provider.

Not only have I had to put up with interminable waits while I attempt to open my AOL emails, I have now received a missive from the idiots at AOL UK saying they are going to delete all our Journals with effect from 31st October. That's the way forward isn't it? Seeing as Blogs are becoming ever more popular.

So, I shall be finding somewhere else to write my occasional wafflings and doing it via, a faster and more efficient Internet provider.

 We are all devastated.   I just finished my vacation journal I worked weeks on only to be told it will be deleted.  I also am a paying customer of AOL and the only reason I was still with them was because of the journals.  I also will be dropping them.  I could cry.

Hi Linda, I can't believe it, I don't journal now, don't have time sadly, but I still read them all. Bloody AOL and I have had a real bad day, now this!!!  Please email me your new journal, and email, address so I can keep up ~ debbiewebb4465@aol.com (for the time being anyway). I'll let you know if I change providers, it's looking really likely just now. Take care, Love Debbie xxx
