Do you feel like you are watching a movie screen? Sit back, put your feet up, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

The picture isn't optimum yet, I have to wait a few days to get the HDTV box and get them to turn it on. It is a nice size (19") and I set the picture so it fills the screen.

I'm not happy with the sound yet, some people sound like they are at the bottom of a well.

I'm hoping that with the HD box installed, I can improve the sound. Many off the adjustments are specifically for digital.

I just booked a one night stay at a hotel in Ottawa for Friday, my birthday. It's Tulip Festival in Ottawa right now. The package includes a $50 credit for a meal at one of their restaurants. I made a reservation for the CAA 4-Diamond Capital Dining Room. It had very good reviews. It's about a 2 hour drive to Ottawa.

I'm going to look for a hotel package for Quebec City for Sunday night. I was originally going to book a 3 night stay, but I had a bad premonition about leaving my elderly cat, Shreddy, alone for four days in a row. That's why I split it into two trips. Might even stay in a hotel in downtown Montreal, if there is a really nice package.

Enjoy some relaxing time off. Hope you have a great birthday. I am sure Shreddy appreciates it too. You deserve a break!

I have booked a room at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City for Sunday. I also made a reservation for supper. I hope it doesn't get crazy, since it's Mother's Day. Mother's Day almost always messes with my birthday plans.
