To make a long story short, they got their job done, the ladder loaded back up on their truck, and the best part, I can now receive all the stations I used to. Funny, my wife was just saying before all this happened that maybe it would be better (no loosing the signal on stormy days) and cheaper to get the TV by other means. Of course I am spoiled and like what we got. For the mean time, I guess we will be keeping Dish. They were nice enough to waive the ninety some dollar service charge, so it cost us nothing. Yes, I was pleased about that. OK, now let me get back to watching Wagon Train and I want all of you to have a great day, you hear?

What To Do Without TV
I was watching my regular old west TV shows this weekend and, puff, it was gone. No, not the TV, just the picture on the TV. It said that it lost the signal. What?!?!? I went outside and there was a mostly clear sky and I also checked, and the dish was still on the roof. Yes, I have Dish satellite TV service. I called them and they said that repairmen would be able to come out on Monday and, sure enough, they did. They put new receiver buds on the part that picks up the signal that bounced off the dish and also repositioned it by pointed it to the eastern satellite instead of the western one that it had been pointing at. They said there was less obstructions in that direction.
