The last part, especially! DW and I will hit 15 years in June, so I'm there with you!

I doubt they will have their wi-fi issues fixed by then. This is going to be a nightmare!

True. But a week or two ago I lost the remote. Not being able to fast-forward through commercials has been horrible. Still can't find it and just ordered a new one yesterday. Maybe the Ukranian took it back with her.

I generally canít find anything worth watching anyway so it's got fairly low mileage on it.

DS has not gone to school all week, he's had a fever the last 2 days, well just took him to the Dr. confirmed flu, you would not be able to tell he's sick since all he wants to do is play, but he has off now till Mon

He was going to get the flu shot in Oct but he had a cold , then the storm came, then we were in WDW, followed by the Holidays, he just got the shot last week, they say you can't get sick from it but since both my wife and I both got sick the following week after getting the shot, back in Sept & Oct (different Drs different weeks) and now my DS gets sick a week later, I'm kinda having a hard time believing this

Medically you cannot get the flu from the shot as it is a dead form of the virus and not active. Unless you get the Zombie Flu.

It takes 2-3 weeks for the flu shot to become effective and it normally provides 60-80% protection. The strains of flu covered by the shots are chosen based on the prior years illnesses and it always seems that one strains is missed in the process. But I assure you that 60-80% protection is better than 0%. This year is one of the worst for flu illness. It started earlier and is more wide spread than usual.

Keep an eye on him, kids that have gotten ill have been at risk for complications this year. Lots of rest and plenty of water (even though he may get sick). Hope he feels better soon.

See what happens when you have a nurse practitioner in the family (not me).

After ordering the new remote, I took a close look at how much I'm paying Verizon each month. With cell, internet, tv, and home phone, they've got me for over $300 a month. I think I could live with a much cheaper tv package but I'm stuck in a 2 yr commitment.

We were just discussing our Comcast bill for cable, internet and phone. We are close to $300, but not quite over it yet. Had the same concerns and dropping service. I'm not even sure we watch all the channels we pay for. We do get a lot of sports channels that we watch so I'm not sure we could drop without losing them and I need to have the wireless internet for my home office so we may just be stuck with it.

As far as what dad gets in our house, it's basically whatever no one else wants.

Well work is done for the day. Time to head home and make sure DS is ready for his basketball game tonight.

Later all.

Our cell service is separate but if I add them together, it about 250. I donít have any premium channels (and donít really want Ďem) so thatís probably the main difference. Iíve considered ditching cable altogether, but DW wouldnít have it and I do like having the internet connection. If I could pick and choose the channels, Iíd only have about ten or fifteen. Iím sure thatís why I canít pick and choose.


What Dad getsÖ
Well, itís what ever is left after I ensure that everyone else get the best stuff.

ĎCause thatís what you do.

Being able to choose TV channels a la carte would be wonderful. I believe Sen. McCain introduced a bill to that effect a few years ago and it was swiftly shot down.

Agreed. Except for the remote.

Dad also gets to kill all the creepy-crawlies in our house, too.

Cowboys fired Rob Ryan today. Maybe the Ryan brothers can work together for the NYJ. That would pretty much lock up the AFC East in New England for another 5 years.
