all afternoon it's been loading really slow for me.. every once in a while, and then it is ok again. I am just wondering if it's me or you? Shrug!

Nope, I'm not doing anything with the site. It seems to be loading at its normal speed for me.

Hetty, have you tried just re-starting your computer? Sometimes that fixes weird stuff.

I am at normal speed, which is slow on Mondays. Rolling on the floor laughing I'm shopping online for greenhouses.

Hee hee, Cheryl, we were talking about computer speed, not people speed! Hilarious! Let me know if you find any good deals on GH's! I'm toying with the idea of a second one. Smiling

Woofie, my computer moves as fast as I do. And today I am slooooooow. Seriously. I have no problems with ATP today.

I got new progressive lens eye glasses. They are slowing me down. They are not helping at all. I feel like Helen Keller. At least I can type without looking at anything! My lenses def need some tweaking!!

I am leaning towards the Harbor Freight 10 x 12' gh again. I have been going back and forth with it. But I am in no hurry and I have time to decide.
PROS
1. inexpensive, good as I don't have serious need for a greenhouse. $679 on sale til Nov. 30. At Amazon for the same price BUT s/h is high.
2. I can put it together myself with little help from dh
3. the tweaks to give it the extra support it will need are simple
4. great instruction on YouTube from those who have been there before me
5. it's the perfect size with double doors on the narrow end
6. they will deliver as I don't have a truck
7. it won't appear as permanent as it is thus pleasing the HOA as it will sit on partially on an easement
CONS
1. reviewers say the panels blow off in a strong wind (but that is what the tweaks are for)
2. I wonder about the insulating properties (Ken has ideas using Solexx if it is not warm enough for our winters.
3. I am not a whizz with my drill as I am with other power tools

Oh, that does sound tempting! I've been thinking about getting one to set up in my old dog kennel as an overflow site for my primary GH. The tomato plants tend to take over! That really sounds like a good deal. Thanks for the info!

Hetty, flounder from technical ignorance here, but what service provides your Internet? My ATP access was slow this morning, as well. I have Time Warner Cable.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
