  • SOS Dish TV and T-shirts

    06/14/2020 10:57:32 AM PDT · by Auslander154 · 57 replies
    I am in great need of advice although the problems are not earth-shattering. I am about to toss AT&T U=Verse to the four winds. U-Verse is the absolute Verst! I liked AT&T Direct TV ok, but rates really skyrocketed after my contract ran out. I have never tried DISH TV and was hoping I could get reactions from Freepers who have tried it and be good enough to let me know what they think of it. How was the DISH service in particular? I don't have any neighbors who have DISH TV or know of anyone who does which makes...

    For 10 minutes, a woman heard a man yelling for help Tuesday. And then, it stopped. She called the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office. That led to a search around North Derting Road by KCSO deputies and neighbors by foot and ATV. They checked as close as they could get to the area, but didn’t find anyone, or anything, KCSO reported. A mystery? Perhaps not. While not confirmed, they discovered a likely reason for the cries for help. “Deputies later learned there were some men training some hound dogs in the area, and this could have been the source of what...

    Hello FR, Some of you may know through my posts of our total loss of our Spring Fair season. It is looking like our Summer season will now be a bust. Now instead of crying about it, while mowing down one of our pastures, (because our tractor broke and we can't afford for Randy to come and take care of the fields), I had an idea. The idea would incorporate multi-media to create a virtual store at the Fair. Now I have no money, but I do have an existing website that still needs to be brought up to snuff....
  • Gov. Cuomo Refuses To Accept Help From Gun Manufacturer Who Wants To Help With Medical Supplies

    You would think that in times of emergency, political leaders would put their ideology aside and accept help from whomever offered it. But that doesn’t appear to be the case regarding Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York. His state has become the coronavirus epicenter in the United States and he, like other elected leaders in New York, has been pleading for medical supplies — especially ‘PPE’ (personal protective equipment) and ventilators for the critically ill. Well, one company idled by Cuomo’s coronavirus executive order to shut down because it isn’t considered “essential” has offered to make these items for...

    I don't normally discuss politics with most of you because it just upsets half the people I know. Many of you are going to be very upset with me for this. That is fine because it more important that you hear the truth then like me. What is going on in DC right now is incredibly dangerous. The level of out and out lying by US House Democrats about their objections to the Virus Relief bill is incredible. There IS no "$500 billion slush" fund, no "bailing out the rich at the expense of the workers" Those are marketing slogans...

    ..And it begins; right on cue. The DNC and CNN collaborate to provide Joe Biden with his preferred comfort format for the next debate on March 15th between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. The Club knows Biden does best in debate formats when sitting down at a desk; just like the 2012 debate between Biden and Paul Ryan. CNN is hosting the debate, and CNN is the most friendly control operation for the needs of the Club. So what happens… CNN and The Club agree to a small venue town hall format where Joe Biden will be sitting down at...

    Dear friends: I'm having a computer problem I would like some advice/help on. Please be aware that this problem has been ongoing for several weeks, so please don't advise me to reboot or clear out the cache since I've done that several times and it makes no difference whatsoever. And please don't ask if my computer is plugged in or turned on. I don't understand why cruelly having fun at the expense of someone with an issue is so popular here. Daily Motion is an excellent site for watching old movies and TV shows that YouTube won't allow. I used...

    Port of Galveston flooded today, and the bus delivering the cruise ship passengers from the parking area abandoned the passengers several blocks from the cruise terminal. A KHOU reporter down doing a report on the flooding saw a 71 year old woman struggling to get to the ship, took her bag and escorted her through the flooded streets to make her cruise. Well worth watching the video.
