Watched the movie "Barry Lyndon" on TCM today. An enjoyable leisurely Sunday afternoon movie for me. 18th Century period piece. TCM was showcasing Stanley Kubrick films.

My daughter dragged us to see Finding Dory this weekend. I loved finding Nemo, but not this one.

I wish our cable company allowed us to pick and choose individual channels. TCM would be the very first one I would choose. But to get it, I would end up with a pile of channels that I would never watch, and would add another $30 or more to my bill. With the computer and TV right now, my bill is way too high. And that is after I upgraded from basic to the next level. So unless we get a HUGE increase from SS someday, I am stuck with what I have.

BTW, if, and that is a big IF, we should get an increase this January, it will amount to only $.17. Since SS doesn't deal in cents, and it is under $.50, no increase.

Yeah, I wish all cable companies would allow that. I would probably end up with 5-6 channels instead of 100 useless garbage.

Congress has been debating for years changing the rule that cable companies can require subscribers to purchase "packages" instead of letting them subscribe to the channels they want.

In the real world, cable companies have to cover their overhead, thus all the junk channels that go into every package.

There really are cable documentary channels and nature channels that are superior in content than what's offered in a basic subscribers "plan choice".

Instead of going up another tier in channel package to get those gems, just charge me for those few superior channels from that package. Only, make it a lot less than $29.99 a month. You can keep those other channels.

I loved Bottle Shock..The story of the early days of California wine making featuring the now infamous, blind Paris wine tasting of 1976 that has come to be known as "judgment of Paris" and rocking the world of wine. Great story, and fun to watch.
You can watch it free on Amazon Prime.

Bottle Shock was a great movie. I saw it several years ago on Netflix.

Last night we watched 13 Hours. Pretty intense, fully of action, it was about the US compound attack in Benghazi a couple of years ago.
