    Default Got a Call Yesterday

    "Boat Gone 11, Sack Coming your Way". 5 hours later got a little "Care Package" from my Farm. Nearly 100 Pear (Avocado) from 5 different Trees on my Place. Another sack supposed to come next week and it will be holding some Pear from Trees I planted. The Lime (3 Varieties) is from Trees I planted.

    Keep thinking I am done planting Trees but somehow there is always another 1,000 or so here or there that need planting.

    Trying to post pic but Internet too slow.......

    Do you have a Claro modem or are you bogarting someone else's WiFi

    If the latter I have an antenna you could have.

    It's the one that looks like a mini satellite dish.



    If the former,, you can get an amplified USB cable inexpensively, that allows you to put the Claro modem up high.
    The cable needs a little power, uses one of those wall warts,, so doesn't work when the lights are out.
    But it does work well.
    Pointing is critical for optimum performance.

    Tend to "borrow" WiFi. Gave up on the modem. Claro 3G here is actually 2G and on a good day is CRAP.

    That's some nice looking fruit. I need to hop across the bay and get a tour from you. Might have a short visit lining up, will see if it works out.

    Let me dig the antenna out and get it to you.

    Can I mail it? It's really nothing that would be stealable. Works well, I used to bogart a signal from a RV park about 500 meters away,, came in strong.

    Advantage is,, you put the antenna up high and use a USB to bring the signal down.
