The fact is, we live in the country...no wireless Internet....still a dial-up connection. The fact is, we live in a brick house...a double brick to be exact. The house was bricked, then re-bricked over that as part of the construction in 1857. Walls are thick.....so thick that we are fortunate to even have two phone lines entering the house----one in the kitchen and one in the den for the satellite dish. So...in the end, we need a place in the kitchen to house our computer. I just recently redid this area by marrying a cast off table with a set of drawers. Now our kitchen holds a little work area - and our little laptop has a spot to call his own.
