  • It’s amazing how much you can accomplish at work when you’re left alone and have a mandate to just get things done.
  • Irish Woman called the cable company the other day to talk to them about the rate increase they threw at us this month.
    • I came home to an announcement that we no longer had cable TV.
    • Our bill went down 50% when we went to only having telephone and data service.
    • A $25 indoor antenna gives us about 18 channels, which is more channels than we actually watch anyway.
  • I’ll learn to live without Monday Night Football, or at least the two or three games that I had the time and energy to watch.
  • I looked at one of the services that allow you to stream NFL games, and while it’s tempting, I’d rather buy a gun or stock up on ammunition with that amount of money.
  • Since we were looking at the channels we got, I decided to see what broadcast TV looks like on Sunday evenings.
    • Wow, what a wasteland.
    • The two things that looked even remotely interesting were a PBS documentary on New York self-immolating in the 1970’s, a show that featured pumped up individuals doing parkour and pullups, and robotic gladiators.
    • I then did what any responsible adult would do, and switched over to an alternate channel and watched Gilligan’s Island.

    Is it time for amazon prime and its large library able to be streamed?

    • We’ve been using that and Netflix for a while. We just had to wean ourselves off of the few cable programs we still watched. All we really need is local news and weather from the antenna.
