I went back to Central Park a few days later.

I was going to upload more but as usual it is taking so long for each image to upload, 5 minutes at least, so I'll stop here. It's been like that these past few months with slow upload and where the internet connection also cuts off and everything I've uploaded/written but not posted yet gets lost. Very very annoying because I lose my train of thought and have to start from scratch. Lost quite a few times and I've just adjusted to limiting my responses to few words and small quantity of uploads (1 meg max each probably)


Encountered the dreaded internet connection message twice ... good thing it was not during an upload (DP review does not let me cancel when uploading a post) . Got reconnected after 3 tries, posted and now editing it to put some more sentences in.

Really lovely colourful images KB, thank you.
What is the problem with your internet connection? I guess it is something you pay for so what should you get as opposed to what you do get?

Growing old is inevitable; growing up, however, is optional.
And I have opted out.
My intention is to die young as late as possible.

Thank you, David.

My neighborhood doesn't have good wireless internet service, most people here use cable to get tv and internet.  I use a portable hot spot to get the internet and even in the best of times, it's slow.  I could have gotten  It wasn't that bad until last October when my provider informed me that support was being reduced (probably because they are switching to 5G and my hot spot is 4G)  and connectivity got worse. Many times connection just drops or slows down drastically and they have not released a newer hotspot model for 5G so I'm stuck.  The deal is good (if connection is reliable) , unlimited usage with automatic payment.  But the deal is for 2 years only, don't know what will happen after it expires.
