Topics I've Started

i need a riding mower

27 February 2015 - 08:49 PM

Moving into a bigger house with a much bigger yard in a few weeks. I have a small 22" cut push mower that would take me a couple hours to mow the new yard with.

 

So I'm looking for a 42-46" cut riding mower, mainly as a time saver. I just can't allot 2 hours just to mow, not to mention trimming etc.

 

Would love to not spend over a thousand bucks but am scared to buy used.  Any suggestions?


something you'd like to see turned into a movie or tv series

Any books, cartoons, old TV shows, stories or anything you'd like to see turned into a movie or TV series?

 

I think for me it's the old "Six Million Dollar Man". I think a movie could be fairly well done. Of course that was the early '80s so he'd probably be more like 600 million...

 

And as immensely popular as "The Greatest American Hero" was, I can't imagine it hasn't been broached as a reborn series or movie.

 

I'd love to see something along the lines of "The White Shadow" redone as a TV series. Most TV teacher type shows are absolutely horrible, but if done right I think this could work.

 

Hollywood regurgitates everything anyway so these would be fun to see attempted. And if they sucked (and they probably would), it'd give us all something to complain about.

 

 


TWC or Directv

21 February 2015 - 05:16 PM

Just bought a new house and will be moving in a couple of weeks. Currently I have TWC with the bundle of digital phone, cable TV with whole home DVR, and digital phone. Got HBO and Cinemax on 4 TVs.  Bill runs around $200 a month for everything.

 

The house we bought already has a Directv dish. Trying to decide what my best route is to go.  I loathe TWC but my service has been ok.  Not impressed with the high speed internet (I'm supposed to have the highest residential service available but it doesn't dress out that way). Digital phone has been nice, cable tv works 99.9% of the time but whole home DVR stopped working last week.

 

AT&T Uverse isn't available here so it looks like Directv for television and Windstream for phone and internet.  Probably would end up going with TWC for internet regardless because Windstream's top internet here is 3mbps.

 

Right now leaning towards going back with TWC bundle but if I can save a few bucks with Directv I may give that a try.

 

What say you?


Weren't we supposed to all be dead by now?

Ebola was supposed to have killed us all by now.

 

Dang, now I gotta do my taxes.


Thomas Davis interview Friday WFNZ

24 January 2015 - 12:07 AM

Man I just love this guy more and more every time I see him play and hear him talk.

He was humbled to be nominated for NFL Man of the Year. Said being a role model and doing things in the community are "what we are supposed to be doing".

Said he hopes he has a couple of years left in the tank but will play as long as the Panthers want him. Said he will not play for another team.

Was asked if he never made it to a Super Bowl would he feel like he had less of a career. Said he REALLY wanted to be part of the team that won Mr. Richardson a Super Bowl. Reiterated that a couple of times.

Such a class act and tremendous football player.
