Enough Internet for Everyone #FIOSPhilly with Verizon

This post was sponsored by Verizon FIOS as part of the #FIOSPhilly Campaign. All opinions found here are strictly my own.


Verizon FIOS is wonderful for people like me who really like technology! I mean I really like technology. It is not uncommon for me to be watching a movie on my tablet, writing a book on my laptop, using social media on my smart phone and doing research on my e-reader.  I really like my gadgets. When you like technology and gadgets the way I do, a good internet connection is a must. If you are sometimes forced to work while your children are home and need to be entertained, it is important to have a good selection of television networks suitable for children with the ability to block things young eyes should not see. that is where FIOS by Verizon comes in.

Just a few weeks ago, I received notice that my current internet service provider is going out of business effective November 2015. Of course, that prompted me to start looking for a new provider. Naturally during my research period, FIOS from Verizon came to my attention.  Verizon FIOS is different from other ways of transferring information. Verizon FiOS uses lasers to send information through optical fibers directly to your home. Fiber literally travels at the speed of light. It’s a national fiber infrastructure that feeds directly into customers’ homes. Fiber optics aren’t influenced by weather conditions. Fiber optical cables carry light instead of electricity, they are not disturbed by changes in the temperature, rain, cold, or virtually any other environmental condition. If you have ever lost the signal to your satellite dish during a storm, you know how frustrating this can be.

Verizon FIOS is particularly good for busy homes like mine because it does not subject users to the “internet rush hour.” At many homes, traffic jams start around 7:00 pm when kids are doing homework, and parents are connecting through social media and streaming movies. You get more rush out of ‘rush hour’ because of a FiOS dedicated connection, no sharing bandwidth with your neighbors. No more buffering or error messages waiting for On Demand programming. It’s also future-proof. FIOS can keep up with ever-changing TV/HD and Internet technology. You won’t have to switch again.It is built to allow you to have the same internet speed for both uploading and downloading – something we need more and more off these days as we share videos and photos, store in the cloud. It’s also something cable cannot provide.

It’s Your Life – Take Action Now and Run Things

take action now and control your life www.janeanesworld.com


Everyone who wants to get things done must TAN aka Take Action Now. All the talking and planning in the world  will get nothing accomplished without action. In addition, if you don’t take action now, someone else will and they will control your destiny.

Take action now and control your destiny – after all, it is your life, you should control it.

Several years ago while attending a business conference I first learned about term TAN aka Take Action Now. One of the speakers at the conference talked about how he learned to avoid disagreements with his wife by taking action now and doing things he knew she wanted him to do before going on business trips. For the most part they were simple things  – take out the large trash cans, do certain activities with the children and handle car maintenance.  For months he had been getting into fights with his with wife and when he came home from trips he was unable to relax as he wanted and instead had to to all the chores he should have done in advance.  Once he learned to take action now before he went on trips, he was in control of his destiny. He was able to enjoy coming home from his business trips because there was no disagreement awaiting him. By simply taking action now and doing what needed to be done, he gained control of his life.


Look at your life and obligations right now. Are there things that you should take action now to do that you have been putting off? In your past, have you been pushed into corners or backed into places and situations you did not want to be because you failed to take action when you should have? If this has ever happened to you, you saw the value of a move to take action now. Action needs to be taken, people need to move forward and get things done. If you fail to take action now and get things done, others will take action and your life will be determined by the decisions of others. This means that the outcome may not be to your liking. A simple example is the following. Imagine you are at a restaurant for dinner. Normally you order the grilled chicken with seasonal vegetables and fresh bread. However, today you want something different, you are in the mood for grilled salmon with sweet potatoes and broccoli. Before the waitress comes to take your order, you go to the restroom without letting your family know what you are in the mood to eat. when you come out and find that the chicken has been ordered for you, you will eat it and as usual it will be delicious as usual. However, you will be dissatisfied, because you did not get what you wanted. You were not in control of your own life.

While a dinner order is a rather small thing in the grand scheme of life, it is an example of what happens when we fail to take action now. What happens is that others are in charge of our lives and we get to do what we are told instead of what we want.  Take action now and do what needs to be done in your life before someone else takes over the reigns in your life.

I make an amazing Thanksgiving Dinner. Hands down, I am convinced that my Thanksgiving dinner will beat anyone else’s hands down. My problem is everyday dinner. I am not a chef and don’t want to be. That being said I am glad I discovered how easy it is to grill food and how delicious pork tastes even in the hands of an amateur cook like myself. The photo below shows some pork chops I made for my family in just a few moments on the grill. All I added was a dash of salt and a pinch of seasonings and the result was some mouth-watering deliciousness!
