Every mark has a space. Every figure has a ground. A failure to communicate says something, Celebrate Don't Use Telecom Day. coming soon ...
On a scheduled day in the near future, celebrate "Don't Use Telecom Day."
To the extent you can, do not use telecommunications systems. Power down your home router. DHCP servers will notice that they aren't assigning IP addresses. Wrap your cell phone in aluminum foil. Cell phone networks will not know your phone's location.
Don't shut down anything necessary for safety. Don't interfere with other people's use of telecommunications systems. Keep an old-fashioned radio working so you won't miss out on world events. If you don't have a radio, now is a good time to get one. Unwrap your cell phone if you have a good reason. Use your judgment about Plain Old Telephones. Buy a newspaper.

We adopted Tilda on January 16, 2010 from the North Shore Animal League. She weighed 35 pounds, and was at least three years old. She looks like a Lab / hound mix, and she behaves like a hound. Kath suggested the name Matilda ("mighty in battle"), a fine name for a dog who has survived abandonment and a broken leg. Two syllables makes a better calling name, so we shortened it to Tilda.
She barks too much.
