You know your drought is bad when you actually pray for a tropical storm to enter the Gulf.
So what have ya'll been up to? Same ole, same ole around here just living life in the routine we cut for ourselves. Seriously, I believe we need a vacation. However, at this time of uncertainity we just can not afford such a luxury. I have been doing piddling things to keep my mind occupied like: spending time with our boys, taking care of the house and critters, reading as much as I can get away with, and watching the news. Here are some casual observations:
Netflix price change; really there are folks upset over this? Amazes me because I find the company to offer an amazing deal. For giggles I kept track of the movies in and out for a month and have found we average around 20 movies (documentaries, cartoons, shows) a month. At or under $1 each, Netflix is a bargin that can not be beat at all. Their streaming service does not work for us because we do not have DSL service out here but, have to rely on satellite and the buffering drives me insane. Folks come to terms; Netflix is pretty darn awesome in my opinion; if you don't like the changes just move onto another service.
And I do know about Redbox, but their service is cost prohibitive if you add a 30 mile roundtrip to check out a $1 a nite rental after adding gas, wear and tear, and my time. I think Netflix is actually losing money with us because of shipping and our volume of rentals. Sssssssh don't tell. LOL
The drought has killed everything around here. I am surprised ranchers can afford to keep any cattle at all. There is no hay to speak of; and to have to buy grain to feed them; my wager watch beef prices continue to rise. I am thinking we will have to wait until mid September to plant a second garden. Really we are just one big ole fuse awaiting some careless person to toss a cigarette and the whole state will go up in flames.
'Big Rich, Texas' on Style Network. Lets talk about taking out the garbage here. Sad sad reality show with all the earmarks of Jersey Shore but, without the class. (LMFBOH) I was up one night and could not sleep only to happen upon this mess. As someone who has spent most of their adult life in Texas; I am ashamed for the producers to be portraying such ilk to the American public that in no way resembles a real person in the State. Really, does the public believe the 'RICH' would have the compunction to be a part of such nonsense? Hopefully this will just go the way of other ill fated reality shows......on the cutting room floor.
Dear commenter, IIL please know that I can not comment back to you. I am guessing BLOGSPOT is again having troubles. Sometimes I really think they need to work on their servers during the middle of the night. Too many glitches for my attention span. Thanks for all your comments though, I do appreciate it.
Now I am off to read some of ya'll. I do have to try and convice my little snaggle toothed Cubby Bear to do a rain dance to bring Tropical Storm closer. Just what are ya'll up to?????
