The cable companies have made it easy to record programs. You just find the TV show on the TV channel line-up and click on record. You can record a single episode with the press of one button or the entire series automatically.

Last night we were at my son's house babysitting my 5 year old grandson. He had that remote in his grubby little hands and was flipping through the programs that they had recorded. My husband had a devil of a time finding the right channel to watch the daily number. He had to show DH how to do it! LOL Kids are just so smart with electronics.

It's what they've grown up with.

I don't have any double standards either, HA!

I can sue this website for this. I looked up reasons for marriage dissolution, and I can sue for alienation of affection.

I'm sorry, this is too much fun. My dumb sense of humor is just hard to hide sometimes.

Cat, sometimes you are just downright scary! I love it!

I had an argument with the cable company 5 or 10 years ago. We were behind on payments. I phoned and asked if I paid online right away, would that leave my service on. I was told yes, so I paid it that day. A week or so later, my cable service went off. I phoned and was told that I would have to pay a reconnection fee. So, I told them where to stick their cable service. We used a wire as an antenna for several years. Then one day, that wire hit the prong of the plug to the TV, between the plug and the extension cord. Fried the TV. We never bothered replacing it. I have an old TV in my basement office. We have a flat screen TV in the bedroom, but it's hooked up to our network. We watch downloaded stuff on it. I only miss having a TV once in a while. There's so much stuff I can just watch on the internet.

I kept getting that until I figured out to restart FireFox.

So THAT'S why I had to sign in this a.m. (Fri.) And why clicking on a link delivered to my email took me to replies back in 2013!

I missed that heads up. Was it delivered to everyone's email or did we have to look for it?

Hope everything goes smoothly. Sometimes there are glitches when something new and better is installed.

Right now is the first time I've been able to get on since the site went off last night. The message I kept getting was "We're performing routine maintenance."

I just figured whatever they were doing took longer or they added more functions.
