Congress in the palm of your hand

  1. We recently changed our cable television plan to include a phone line. Less money for cable, internet, and phone AND the long distance (including Canada and Mexico) is free. Now I have to figure out who to call.

    1. Well I’m in Sydney Australia if you want to give me a buzz XD

      But I better warn you; I’m very hard of hearing and the conversation will probably go along the lines:

      Whats that you say? Speak up I can’t hear you! Hello, you there?

      You get the drift 😈

      1. My best friend is actually in Australia right now (a vacation of a lifetime) and we are in contact through Facebook messanger each day. I now know you are getting ready for lunch and I will need to go to sleep. This world is wonderfully different than my chidhood, I need not shout (though I am loud) because you read at your own level.

      2. You’re definitely right about the lunch, and I’m more than peckish at the moment.
        I hope your friend is not in Sydney at the moment, the weather at this time of the year is usually perfect but for the past few weeks it’s been atrocious.
        Even Perth in Western Australia, which has the perfect climate year round is not escaping from the bad weather.
        In 66 years in Australia I’ve never seen anything this bad! 🙁

      3. Australia is rather a large place, actually it’s a big place (an island continent, not just a country) and Sydney is the largest city, and is on the eastern coast.
        Our weather is normally the envy of the world. “Sunny Australia” is how its normally described, XD

    1. They needn’t worry about this US version being of any use in Australia. But there are probably plenty of developers there who can easily write up an Aussie version for you.

      1. I have a brilliant brother in law does that sort of thing,
        I suppose he is, he was a visiting professor for a while teaching that stuff at a,Uni in North Carolina a few years back

    1. Oh, he looks like a winner. But I shouldn’t judge the book by its cover, should I.

      I called my congressman this afternoon. He’s a Democrat, so mostly all I could say was thank you and keep up the good work. It’s a given he’ll be voting against the AHCA, but I figured a bit of encouragement couldn’t hurt. Called my Republican senator too, just to put him on notice, and only got voicemail. Figures. He hasn’t shown up at any of his town halls here at home, either.

      Found myself wishing the app listed everybody in Washington so I could call relevant people whether I’m a constituent or not. But it’s certainly a good start.

... and that's my two cents
