We put our cable on hiatus for a while

Because frankly, we couldn't pay the DirectTV fees.

Now that I'm getting paid good money to run a backhoe and try to push some west side denizens to do work- we can start paying for content again.

The problem is- Karen got a Netflix account and there is absolutely nothing I really want to pay $65/MO for on TeeWee.
I'm watching old Discovery shows and the History Channel before it became the "American Pawn-Pickers *on ICE* channel.
Tonight I'm watching Discovery's "How the Universe works" with the Big bang as the center attraction.

They have all kinds of smart people up there telling us how the universe started from nothing and expanded into what we know now.

But we ALREADY knew what happened- we just didn't have lots of smart people telling us what happened, we just had some monks writing their lives away to tell us what happened.
...And it's pretty accurate to what the smart scientists are telling us.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

I'm sure the next set of shows will prove Geneses right again when the planets form...
 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.


  1. When I was little I remember someone telling me the Big Bang was God playing with fireworks

  2. Good Call.

    That DirectTV $65 is BS as well.

    Its $65 plus $6 for every receiver, plus $10 per receiver for HD, unless you let them automatically take it out of your bank account.

    It quickly works it's way towards $100 a month.

    And I only use it for NASCAR and Football.

    .... unfortunately we dont have the bandwidth to use netflix, and we're too far out in the boonies for digital broadcasts from Cedar Hill.
