I am excited to find out that there may be another internet option here in St. Francis and Bird City.

Our internet woes in St. Francis may be getting a bit of relief. Michelle Staley, from the Viaero corporate office, came to announce the arrival of a new internet service to the area. After talking with her for a while, and asking lots of questions, here is what we found out:

Your local Viaero Dealer Sainty Wireless located at 301 W Jackson St. Francis is excited to be able to offer this new internet option to our communities. Shelley Culwell is happy to answer any questions 785-332-2270. There are further details below.

  • Viaero is offering their ProConnect service, which has speed/price options of 5Mbps/$49.95, 10Mbps/$69.95, and 15Mbps/89.95. These are the set prices, not an introductory price.

  • Your upload speed averages around 25% of the download speed.

  • There is unlimited data, but if your data usage reaches 15gb in one day, then your data rate will slowed for the rest of the day.

  • The data connection uses an antenna which is mounted on your house, and connects to a Viaero tower. The ProConnect connection is differnt from a call connection though, using a different network, which means that your internet service and your cell service will not be using the same data flow, and will not bog each other down.

  • The signal to the tower is usable up to 6-8 miles. So, you must be within 6-8 miles of a Viaero tower that has the service enabled, and you must have good line of sight with that tower. The data support techs can usually pinpoint who would be able to use the service and who cannot if you call them. 877-484-2376 The Viaero tower in the SE part of St.Fracnis, does have this service enabled.

  • There is a two year service contract. If you wish to end your contract early, there is a $200 penalty.

  • The first 14 days of service are to test your system, as a trial period.

  • This service is good for home or business.

After seeing the 4-28-17 video of the object moving across the moon, @ it reminded me of a similar video I had shot on 10-22-14 north of St. Francis, KS at sunset. If it wasn’t for that post I wouldn’t have posted this—however both videos to me look as if they are related somehow???

It was worth a post

Cosmic Bowl at the Cheyenne Bowl has never rocked as hard as it did tonight. 9ine Foot Squirrel performed a live set which included many of their original songs, mixed in with classic covers.

Everyone had a great time during this all-ages event. The music was loud and fast, the food was delicious, the beers went down way too fast, and the kids spent the night dancing and chasing each other around the venue, a good time was had by all.

What the hell is pesto, and how do you make it?
I have read that pesto is meant to be a salad dressing, and it is a wonderful salad dressing, but I tend to use it for much more. With ingredients like basil, garlic, and olive oil, pesto is delicious on meats, i use it when cooking vegetables, potatoes, I put a smear on breads before melting cheese over it, quesadillas, just about anything, except maybe ice cream, but that is just because I haven't tried it yet. I exaggerate, but it truly is yummy.

One of the beauties of pesto is that yo

The Republican River after a heavy rain
The day after a heavy rain of more than 2", my daughter and I decided to go down to the River Walk to check on how the river was doing after Mother Nature decided to fill it back up. The river was wider in many places, and faster. In several places we could hear the water bubbling around newly fallen limbs and underbrush which the water's edge hadn't reached in some time. Areas which we had sat and played last year were now completely under water. Everything had a fresh, wet smell.
