NYC (2)

The past two weeks have been absolutely insane between Eagling up for Denver, me working more hours than usual, and odder days than I usually do, and 4th of July. Long story short–my camera sat on the shelf. However, the week wasn’t a total wash. My cell phone got some action throughout the week…so it’s not a huge outpouring, but at least I didn’t ignore my pictures all together. Week – 6/28/15 – 7/4/15 Me, hours before the Eagle Ceremony with my Mother’s Scout pins. Some beautiful roses in my favorite color, a gift from my new Eagle Scout. The first blooms finally erupted on my Rose of Sharon. This guy popped up on the neighbor’s door frame. Of course, it wouldn’t be the 4th of July without some of the requisite fireworks photos. And that’s it for this week!  More to come next week…considering I get my camera back out 😀 Read more »

Copy of Top 10 Favorite Books

Just over five years ago we gave up cable. Then, after a year I caved and got it again, only to cancel it again after our discount rate went away. We sure don’t miss the cost, but there are a few things I miss . With regular stations, Netflix, and Amazon Prime, we have plenty to watch and shows to catch up on, and other shows we can catch after a year, but some things just aren’t the same. DVR. There are so many times I simply forget a show is on, or something comes up and I’m not at the TV when it comes on. Worse, some shows (Hell, SYTYCD) just don’t let me catch it online “next day”. I miss the convenience of in-box DVR. Ghost Hunters. Inarguably the one show I miss. It’s also the one that SyFy refuses to stream in any way. The Dead Files. Another favorite. (Are we sensing a theme here?) My Ghost Story. (Seriously, I need help.) Nick at Night. It’s showing MY old favorites now…good shows, great reruns. Hell on Wheels. Yes it’s on Netflix, but first run is better. American Pickers. Yeah. Nat Geo.  ‘Nuff said. FX. 100’s of channels. Always something on. (this is both a blessing and a curse. Harder to turn off the TV and, oh, I dunno…WORK.) In the end, life is better without cable. But some days I do get waxing poetic over the whole thing. What about you? What is your favorite thing about having, or not having, cable as the case may be? If you don’t…what do you miss most from cable? Read more »
