Wednesday's Why

We're expecting a heatwave(temps above freezing), so I'll be trying to log as many miles as possible before we get back to our January freeze.

Okay, I'm not sure if this is an age thing or what but 'Why do we still have land-line telephones'?

Everyone has a cell phone, even small children. Why are we paying the telephone companies twice?

Come on, give me some solid answers.

I stopped paying for a land line about 5 years ago! :) Enjoy the heat wave!!!

Hmmmm, I don't know, I'm old fashioned and still have a landline...I have to have one for my satellite dish (don't I?)

Marlene said...

More and more people seem to be ditching the land line. I can never remember to charge my cell phone, so it wouldn't work for me. ;)

Enjoy the heat wave! (It's warmer here today than it was on marathon morning in FLORIDA. Wtf.)

We have four phones on two lines at home. But, we also work out of our house. And none of them are the princess models that you had to rent from Ma Bell. Remember those days?

I was so happy to not need gloves the other day.

About the phone thing, cell phones are not secure. Anyone can listen in on a conversation if they know how. So maybe that's why some keep landlines. Or maybe just in case the power goes out and the cell is dead, they have something to fall back on.

We have ours in case of emergency - even the kids could call 911

I always think that in some kind of emergency I'm gonna need the landline. Until then, it's there for telemarketers to call us :)

No more land line once we got on cable internet. Remember dial-up?

In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike the landline phones still worked when people's phones ran out of charge after two or three days. Power was out for 9 days. That is why we still have ours.
