Contrasts

It's Ramadan and I'm still here in Florida with my oldest son at my mom's house, while my husband and kids are at home in Libya. We had Libyan soup the first four days of Ramadan for nostalgia's sake - my son was happy as he hadn't had it in so long. But four days of that is enough! Tonight we'll go out to eat... we have coupons for Steak 'n Shake

I'm really getting spoiled here, food is easy to make, restaurants are everywhere, the choices at the supermarket are amazing. But aside from food is the Internet. Yes, the Internet. Lightening speed - click on something and there you are. Yesterday I downloaded a 2G file that took about 10 minutes. And there is free WiFi almost everywhere you go here. 

In contrast, Libya Herald had a recent article that stated that Libyan Internet was the slowest in the world. That is, when you even have Internet! A few weeks ago my kid's wimax account got hacked... someone took over their user name and password. They had to go to the company to sort it out. This past week my wimax account has been hacked twice and today when it wasn't working again my husband was told that LTT had closed my account. Thankfully, the representative gave him a temporary username and password to use while they try to straighten out what is going on with my account. Oh my poor hubby! He's had to spend the first part of Ramadan standing in line at LTT... What I want to know is: How on earth do accounts get hacked? I wonder if it's an inside job... sigh.. and that's STEALING! And in RAMADAN!.... Shame on you whoever is doing this!

The weather here in Florida is hot, and humid. Real feel temperatures are about 100F or more every day. Gatorade is my new best friend this Ramadan... I think I drink nearly a gallon every night!

Gatorade is my new best friend!
Ramadan Kareem!
