Does anyone other than me remember cute little Mark Lester in the 1968 movie Oliver! bleating out the plaintive (but rather pretty) song “Whe-e-e-e-ere is love?” Well, people, I am plaintively searching for something too, but unlike unfortunate orphan Oliver Twist, it’s not a home I’m after; I am pining for the elusive internet.
If you’ve seen some of my recent posts you’ll know that Raymond and I have discovered that speedy and reliable internet is rather harder to come by in rural Eastern Ontario than it is in the heart of Montreal. So while I work on persuading the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (the outfit that is supposed to be supplying high-speed internet to our area) to erect a tower in the Queensborough area, my phone is my only connection to said internet while I’m at the Manse. Which is all well and good, but a bit limiting. How I would love to fire up the laptop and work with a real keyboard and a larger screen!
Which is where I’m hoping readers who live in the Queensborough-Madoc-Tweed area can help us. People, where are the good spots to go to plug into wifi? I believe the McDonald’s and Tim Horton’s in Madoc offer it, and also the charming By the Way Cafe in Tweed. Are there other spots? The libraries in Madoc and Tweed, perhaps?
I know you’ll know. And I thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge!
