Dish or Cable? That Was the Question for Our New House

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Funny, but the big question we had when we built our new house was not over what paint color we would have in the rooms or what window treatments we would have. It was a question of dish cable or that TV service the phone company was offering. We decided to go with the tiny dish that gets mounted on the house. It was unobtrusive and brought us in the most HD channels we could get for the money. A new house meant the living room was definitely getting that huge screen TV. We have a theater-like experience in our home now with the satellite HD channels, On-Demand and that huge TV.

Football is really cool at our house now. Our favorite fall and winter sport is larger than life now that we have satellite and this really big HD TV in our living room. My wife and I and the kids gather around it to watch our favorite shows and PPV movies on our movie night. (more…)

When I recently moved to Texas, I found one thing to be rather shocking. Sure there were a lot of things to adjust to, regarding the wildlife, weather, and other features of Texas. But that is not at all what I am talking about. I guess the idea had never even crossed my mind before.

I do not really care to look into it right now either, because while I am curious to know, I am not curious enough to look into it as this present moment. If I remember, then I may perhaps check into it at some point later. (more…)
