I have seen a few responses to my wife's post about cable TV. Those of you that said they switched to Dish, don't you lose the signal every time there is any bad weather? I have heard that from people that I know that have it, I am not saying that because of commercials.

Haha! I know what you mean. When I tell folks that my favorite website is a Christmas site, they seem a little underwhelmed.
"Christmas, huh?"
"Christmas."
"Really?"
The uninitiated have no idea.

We only lost it if the weather was extremely rainy, thunderstorms, and one time because snow accumulated in the dish, it was a pain sometimes.

If it get really bad, then yes, we lose signal. That's been my biggest problem with satellite TV. Just when you need TV the most, bad weather, it quits on you.

Speaking for myself no I have not had that problem. But then again I've only lived in this area for a little over a year and we have not had bad weather. I have lost them for like a second or two but that has only happened once or twice. now I remember back in the early to mid 90's when I still lived at home we had dish and it did go out all the time,but it seems technology has come a long way since then.

Good Choice!

Good Morning, Friends.

Well, it continues cold, cold, cold.
Coldest winter so far in many years.
Now more snow is predicted for both Monday and Tuesday with temps holding in the 30's.
It's 36 as I type this. And the expected highs for today through Tuesday are 43, 43, 38, 36 and 34. Not the trend I want to see, especially with the lows each night in the 20's.
Hey! I'm ready from Spring already.

On with the count:
Days to the Season: 310
Days to Christmas Day: 352
And as can plainly be seen, we will be down to single digits to our first Milestone marker, the 300-day Season window, as of tomorrow!
Wow! We are moving!

You have a Wonderous Weekend Eve along with a Fabulous Friday, Folks!

Good morning,

Yep, it's my birthday, age never really has bothered me before but my 36th is bothering me a little bit. My mother was only 36 when she passed nearly 20 years ago, and it is just makes me sense my own mortality now that I am at that same age. I know it is all in my head, just need to work my way through it I guess. I will be working for most of the day, so we will be celebrating it on Sunday.

Have a good day!

The "one of us" quote just makes me laugh, makes me think we are covert agents or a secret society:

CIA agents
Spies
The Order of the Skull and Bones
Freemasons
Christmas Nuts
