So it has been about a year since we cut the cord (or the beam in our case) and I wanted to give everyone an update.
During this year the Tablo has performed outstandng. We only lost a few shows due to an extended power outage during Hurricane Matthew. Even though we had back up power, our [...]
Or, to be more specific, Beam Bashers. Not that there was anything wrong with our service from DirecTV, having been with them since the early 90’s when they launched their first bird. In fact, when a hurricane past by a few years ago, we were watching satellite during and after the storm while [...]
CBS has renewed NCIS: New Orleans, Madame Secretary, and Scorpion (Yay!)
USA has cancelled Covert Affairs (B00!) on a cliffhanger.
Arrow will return to CW on 1/21 sans Oliver Queen. Someone else will don the green hood. Hopefully Ollie will be back otherwise, IMHO, the show is done for.
Now comes the part of going through the rest of the details. Here is our progress this weekend so far:
Step Up Into The Kitchen:
Still needs to be trimmed out with quarter round
Most of the quarter round is down. Just needs caulking and painting
Step up still needs some [...]
All of the flooring is down except a strip under the sink and the steps. Unfortunately, my Craftsman table saw literally fell apart and crashed to the ground. Can you believe they made it out of plastic instead of metal? I guess Craftsman quality is not what it used to be. So those parts will have [...]
Another productive day today. Thought we blew up the stove when we moved it because it started sparking when we turned it on. But, whatever it was, it appears to have not been of any consequence.
No injuries to report, just a lot of sore muscles. The previously reference toe nail is still with [...]
The irritated Tonya Zeiger spent today in therapy, taking out her frustrations from the past two, not so rosy, weeks at work. I have to credit her with ninety five percent of the demo work. We are both quite sore and, by the way, there is dust EVERYWHERE! The flooring is going down [...]
The lovely Tonya Zeiger made an executive decision that the twenty year old grodee-O beige ceramic tile that covers the floor in our kitchen, dining room, and foyer had to go. Of course it had nothing to do with the fact the it was coming up or that half the grout was missing. I'm thinking we could[...]
When my doctor told me I had to reduce my sodium intake or risk a stroke, the first thing that came to mind was, "No, I can't give up my garlic sour pickles and Italian dressing!" My favorite pickle is the Ba-Tampte Garlic Pickle and according to the label, each pickle has a whopping 590 mg of [...]
We started off the day at the Oasis 26 SciFi convention at The Castle in Orlando seemingly well. The wife was trying to "help" me become less introverted by encouraging me to talk to total strangers walking by the table. May not seem like a big deal to most, but to people like me, it is. Think about[...]
