So when we moved, we bundled. You know: TV, telephone, internet. No cells.

We went with the other big one so we couldn't do cellphones, but it's okay. We still came out ahead because this guy in Best Buy gave us a great deal. At least for a year. Then we'll see.

So far we like it. A couple of small problems getting adjusted. Learning to use the box and the internal message center on the phone. Stuff like that.

Except for one thing we can't figure out. Every once in a while we'll be watching TV and this big blue - yes BLUE - screen comes on and says YOU ARE NOT AN AUTHORIZED USER and refuses to show the picture despite our protests that yes, indeed, we are authorized users and we have the receipts to prove it.

I discovered early on that flipping to another channel and then flipping right back clears it up quite nicely, thank you very much. But my guy gets totally frustrated.

And now football season's here. This can't be good.


  1. Huh. That's weird with the TV doing that. You can probably contact your cable service provider to get rid of that silly message.

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks, Cherie! We've had so darned many service people out the past few months, I'm reluctant to call.

    Oh wait. The heat didn't come on this cool morning. Guess I'll have to call the furnace people. Again. Sigh.
