    Next time a youngster tells you how good we had it in the old days, make them watch the sports on a 19" CRT, that'll put them in their place.
    I had a rear projection TV. When I went shopping for a replacement I bought a new TV that I could have pretty easily thrown in the car and brought home myself. HOWEVER... I specifically made the store deliver it just because they offered to haul your old TV away. I don’t think the delivery guys were thrilled. Lol.

Netflix Making A Murderer and an ocean of docu's and indie stuff is amazingly good filming and the quality is as good as the big releases. Digital Cameras and Digital Editing I guess?
    I actually get my live TV via streaming these days. I use Youtube TV, but there are 4-5 others available. Anyway, they offer an unlimited DVR. Record as many shows as your heart desires. The recordings are kept on their servers, so there’s no capacity issue (actually I’m pretty sure they just record one copy of everything, and then when you “schedule a recording” they simply grant you access to that recording).

    It uses the same streaming boxes that you use for Netflix or Amazon, so no cable box rental fees either. Probably saves me at least $40-$50 a month. You just need decent internet speed.

    When the market crashed in '08 I increased my 401K contribution by $30 a week. If I could go back I would've maxed it out and been a lot closer to retirement. I feel so sorry for the people who cashed out.

    I cut my cable 2-3 months ago and went AIR Free Antenna...

    I saved $130 month, returning box and shutting down my "package". But then the 3rd month I noticed Spectrum raised the internet $4.
    Probably making up for the revenue losses from the cable tv division.

    Im looking for a possible better deal on internet but not much offered here but 4 services and they arent any cheaper.
    One friend said theres a way to stream through his Smart Phone apps to his bluetooth TV thats the cheapest, I dont know.

    Netflix keeps inching up, I think I started $9 month now its $17 ish.
    Amazon Prime you get a lot of other things too like shipping and shopping, so I might drop NEtflix or share it with someone, I think we get three locations with Netflix? So shared it would be $5 a month....Im sure they'll close that door too soon.

    Reminds me paying bills online the banks encouraged and started charging more for checks, then after the mass of people got over to online banking to save money the banks started charging "online banking convenience fees".

    whatcha ya gunna do?

    Cowboys take the Lions.
    NFC EAST outlook seems to me, Eagles to have 4 wins coming, while the Cowboys only have 2 wins, for sure. They battle it out 12/22. Which might be the big game for both of them. Neither seem to be SuperBowl material.


    NFC NORTH...Vikings pressure the Packers. They meet 12/23 which might be better than the SuperBowl.

    Patriots win again...yawn...they meet the Cowboys 11/24
    Ravens.... Seahawks... Saints.. 49ers...

    Came across a Shure KSM 32, appears mint with case and candy for $270, about 50% off, should be flat...
    Sold a few others, with profit deducted almost a free KSM32.

    So been thinking about picking up a smart thermostat. Was waiting to see how the prices would be on Black Friday when I got an email from my utility. Buy it through them with a rebate at half the retail price.

    In fact the Nest E, which is the lower end Nest, can be had for about 75% below retail.

    If anyone was thinking about one, worth looking into whether your utility supplier has a similar deal.

    Im turning off my heat this year, best I can. Its a total waste really with 90% of the house now empty.
    going "japan" and heating only the area Im at when Im in there. Shooting for a $75 bill on a 3010sqft home.
    Cut the cable....cutting out bullshit thats not used.
    Selling off gear to bare basics too and hopefully will enjoy playing instead of shopping....(though I just got a couple mics used)

    UPS has me pissed today, a clusterF!%$# of a delivery and emails with wrong info coming to me and the calls to Customer Survice is basically someone in India trying to track a package.....

    the best part of the Larry David Episode is when I finally just said "JUST HOLD IT AT A UPS STORE AND I WILL DRIVE TO YOU TO GET IT"

    and they said theres a $5.50 charge for re-directing it. lol

    The new thermostat is in and installed. One minor glitch, since resolved.

    Whether it will be worth the investment is tbd. But the cool factor is

    We still turn the thermostat by hand. Are they really smart, or are you just lazy?

    Big game for the Packers tonight. Playing for the lead spot in conference seedings. Alas. I don't think they'll win, they suck on west coast trips.

    The Badgers have set themselves up for a big game next week as well. I don't think they'll be bringing home a win either.


    Go Bucks!

    Not sure. Maybe both.

    The smartness is mostly that after adjusting by hand for a week, it learns your schedule and autoprograms itself. Nothing you couldn’t do yourself with a cheaper, programmable thermostat.

    What I like though is you can adjust it remotely via your phone. So if I go out for an extended day trip, I can drop the temp so as not to heat an empty house, but then raise it when I’m headed back so I don’t come home to a cold house.
