I hate that I cannot get the date feature of Blogger to work since we've moved into the new year. I was able to manipulate the date before, but now it will show a change, but when I ftp, it shows up as the current date.
Awwww, my offspring are the best. They knew how upset I was about DISH taking
Court TV off of their line-up--I don't know how, you know I keep my pain to myself--so
they wrote to DISH on my behalf. I didn't even have to ask.......ten times.
Incidentally, *I* sent a scathing, threatening email to DISH in which
I blasted their asses.....then signed Mr. G's name and provided his phone number.
Here's the kids email:
"Dear Jackass in charge of DISH Programming, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BRING COURT TV BACK!!!
Our mother watches Court TV every day and/or every night. She is obsessed
with *anything* cop related. Because you took her beloved Court TV off the air,
she is now focusing all her attention on us. I repeat, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BRING BACK COURT TV!!
We can only handle so much of her (s)mothering before we'll be forced
to take matters into our own hands, i.e. buy a gun and put us all out of her misery. We suggest you take off any one of those
stations where you try to lurn us something, and that will free up more money for Court TV."
Speaking of the Court TV fiasco, Dish contacted me about my...I mean, Mr. G's email and said the following: "Effective January 1st, 2007, Court TV ceased providing their programming to DISH Network and its customers. It is important to note that DISH Network continues to offer versatile programming within our existing DISH Network packages. DISH Network did not want this to happen and does not agree with what has occurred, but Court TV is demanding more than a 70% increase in their rates. We will continue to negotiate with Court TV for the return of this channel. We at DISH Network have always been passionate about keeping costs as low as possible. We always offer the best value, and lowest price in the pay TV industry. We are able to do this by fighting to protect your rights as a consumer.
It is important to note that DISH Network continues to offer versatile programming within our existing DISH Network packages including FX, CNN and MSNBC. In addition, customers tuning in to CourtTV on channel 204 will see Biography, normally available in the AT180."
Ooooh, Biography! I'm getting chills I'm so happy. Instead of seeing hott sexy cops and half naked lifeguards, I get to watch 900 episodes of Murder She Wrote and the life of Jimi Freaking Hendrix. Pinch me! I love the way DISH makes it seem like they're doing this ALL for the consumer, and yet my bill has gone from $23 to $37 in the short amount of time we've had DISH. Of course if this IS true, shame on Court TV for raising their rates so much.
Hello, Weight Watchers? Who do you think is going to buy into
your weight loss plan after seeing Jenny
McCarthy as your spokeswoman? Seeing an already skinny woman
get even skinnIER is not the image most overweight folks are going to identify with.
Did you read about the heartless bitch in New York who cooked up a batch of rat
poison filled meat balls for her neighbor's German Shepard because she was annoyed by the dog's barking?
Luckily she wasn't very bright. The cops found a frying pan with remnants of
ground beef in it, a receipt for rat poison and rat poison in her garbage.
What an idiot.
THANKFULLY the dog is expected to be ok. The dog's owner, Sue Anderson, said
she could see green pellets cooked right into the meatball.
He's a beautiful dog and I'm glad he's going to be ok. Barking dogs can be a huge annoyance,
but causing the dog to suffer through a painful death is not the answer.
