I've just spent far too long on Amazon's site... but Christmas is just around the corner.
I'm going to buy a Roku for a family member and get the associated stuff I might need to hook it up for them. They already have Netflix, but don't stream... just use the DVDs. This will let them get their money's worth. I came >this< close to getting one for myself, just so I could take advantage of my free month of Amazon Prime and see if I like it (Amazon Prime won't stream through PS3s), but after further research AP isn't up to snuff for me yet. No closed captioning like Netflix yet. But I am going to buy the stuff I need to run true HD to my kitchen television set. Right now it just has coax cable run to it and will only pick up what is on my satellite box, no streaming or DVD movies I am watching, so I'm getting 50' of HDMI cable, an amplified splitter and an HDMI selector to do what I think I need to do
I will look inside my cart tomorrow and see if I think I have all I need and nothing I don't.

I'm getting back into my old hobby after a long 10 year absence from it and cutting down on cycling for the time being due to other obligations. I'm glad I kept some gear...although I sold off most of them 10 years ago when I decided to leave the hobby. I'm currently using a 9.25" Schmidt-Cassegrain but am looking to permanently house it, mounted on a concrete pier, so it's always ready to go. I've always hated the time it took to set up and take down (especially at 3am) the big scope every time I felt like observing.

the concert was very special and of course Aubrey was just beautiful in her cheery red dress. she really put her heart into performing and takes it very seriously. two year old Lilly was very good for the two hours the concert lasted. she spent most of the time, watching pictures on her grandma's phone, knows how to do it herself. such smart girls.

I'm glad you had such a good time, Babe! I so wish you were able to upload pictures I would love to see these beautiful Great-granddaughters of yours!

I am trying desperately to get to sleep before midnight here (12 minutes away). I still have spasms in my back and leg that make laying in bed difficult.
