Did you see it? Was it as thrilling as everyone thought it would be? The last total solar eclipse was February 26, 1979. I was in Basic Training at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. It by-passed most of the United States, … Continue reading
In the previous post, I commented about making these meals go as far as possible. So, I thought I’d give you the end results. The second meal I made was the Penne with Moroccan-spiced Chickpeas and Tomatoes. I think I … Continue reading
In my life, I have a lot of Dr appointments. As a Veteran, with a service-connected disability rating, that means these appointments are free. Free is good! My Va clinic is kind of cool as far as the ‘extras’. We … Continue reading
I am making good use of one of my Birthday Presents to my self https://www.britbox.com/.
When I first saw the ad, I went over to the site just to browse what was available. Before I pay for a subscription, I want to make sure I will get my monies worth. One of the programs they have is DR WHO!! So, I am binge watching!! At $6.99/month, it’s a great deal.
The other shows I couldn’t find anywhere else are: Campion; Mapp & Lucia (the original version); Cranford; Cadfael; Lark Rise to Candleford. Some of these are on YouTube, if you can get beyond the poor quality of uploads.
I also have subscriptions to:
Acorn (more British) – $4.99 – acorntv.com
Netflix – $7.99 – https://www.netflix.com
Hulu (no commercials) – $11.99 – https://www.hulu.com/
Amazon Prime Video – $10.99 – https://www.amazon.com/
America’s Test Kitchen – $3.99 – https://www.americastestkitchen.com/
Amazon Prime (which includes everything) – $10.99 – https://www.amazon.com/
Pandora – $4.99 – https://www.pandora.com/
PBS – which is FREE!
That is a total of $51.93 per month to watch, and listen to, just what I want. Commercial free! I also watch YouTube, but it is not always the best experience. I pay $57.00 per month for internet as well. So, my package, my way, costs me $108.93 per month. I am not locked into anything other than the internet, which means if I am coming up on a short month, I can put my subscriptions on hold. That’s a really nice benefit.
I can put together a viewing program that is just right for me. And my music is set to what I like, and commercial free. I know there is not another cable package out there (I’ve checked), that I can tailor to my tastes, that would be this inexpensive. It makes for Happy Frugaling!
So, to get back to the moment – Happy Birthday to ME!!
I have to get back to the TARDIS!!
