    Channel Master DVR+ - Alternate EPG

    A centerpiece of my "cut the cord" project is a Channel Master CM-7500 DVR+ over-the-air recorder. When I purchased the DVR+, Channel Master was offering a "lifetime" electronic program guide (EPG) for no additional charge. Little did I know that "lifetime" meant something completely different...

    Record heat and wildfires

    We are having record heat (for this time of year) in SoCal. It was 111º at our house yesterday with 16% humidity. Perfect wildfire weather and, sure enough, several new fires started yesterday, including one (the Valley Fire) about 20 miles from our house. Yesterday we had a mild Santa Ana...

    I absolutely DESPISE the United Parcel Service!

    I've voiced my dislike for United Parcel Service in this forum before. I avoid using UPS as much as I can. Their drivers are too stupid to read a sign posted on the front door that has written on it in large block letters in black felt pen "UPS DRIVER..." Packages get left in plain view...

    Verizon Wireless & Interference from carrier in Mexico

    When I got the very first iPhone model in 2007 I switched to AT&T for wireless (because I had to if I wanted an iPhone). I was generally happy with AT&T's coverage here in San Diego but, after I retired and we began traveling the country, I quickly discovered that AT&T had less than desirable...

    Halloween Decorations

    Since retiring in 2009 I've gone pretty overboard with Halloween decorations. Our collection of decorations grew pretty rapidly from 2009 until 2014. I felt this urge to outdo the previous year. Well, that ended in 2015, which was the first year that I didn't add anything new to the...

    Gifted

    It's predictable and manipulative, yet 'Gifted' is a wonderful film. I loved every minute of it. The Booth Bijou gives 'Gifted' 4.5 out of 5 stars. It will definitely be coming to the Booth Bijou Garage Theater in 3-4 months. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/gifted_2017 Trailer: Review...

    Captain Fantastic

    I missed 'Captain Fantastic' in the theaters. I blind bought it in November but, for some reason, didn't get around to watching it until today.

    The Accountant - Oct 14, 2016 (Ben Affleck)

    My wife and I were invited to an advance screening of 'The Accountant' for tonight (Monday, October 10). Kinda of fun to see a movie before reading a single review. I hope it's worth the trouble because we'll have to deal with some rush hour traffic to get there (about 20 miles away). I'll be...
