Had planned to work on the cedar trees today but there is a front moving through with heavy rain north. Will continue what I started yesterday instead. (3/27/21) Saturday - Part I Long day. Back on schedule. Didn't go to bed until about the time I got up in the previous post. It all started while dusting and discovering the speakers on the TV are in the rear pointed toward the wall. Remembered a ridiculous incident some time ago about TV service. Probably posted it somewhere already, but it explains why I am currently illegal. These posts (including the cinder rock incident at Craters of the Moon) may get me arrested. My parents got Dish satellite TV when they moved here. They could only get it installed by using my credit card as security. They never owned a credit card. The spring before my mother died, DISH blacked out the Atlanta Braves baseball station during price negotiations. No end in sight. This was the only thing my mother watched on TV. She never missed a single game. So I tried to get DirecTV (DTV) installed quickly. There was a hefty initial rate discount for new DTV customers for the first year. As I recall about $800 worth. The problem was my mother still didn't have a credit card, never had her name on a mortgage, hence no credit rating. (People like that really should not be allowed to vote.) If I used my credit card, the service would not count as a new customer, because I already had DTV. Looking back I should have just eaten the $800 and kept it a secret, but I was still in The Great Depression mode of thinking, and that didn't even occur to me. Called the authorized AT&T installation guy for the area, and he told me to just add another receiver to my home account and take it to my mother's house, at only $15/month more. I really didn't like this. He insisted, saying "Everyone does it". So for a year I was illegal. When my mother died, the house became a weekend home and it became legal again to add a receiver to a weekend house at that time. Fast forward. I was at the AT&T store recently about the phone, and they said they needed to upgrade my receivers. Afterwards I found out on the internet that AT&T had changed their policy and you were now not allowed to have an extra receiver in a weekend home. Forbidden. Period. So I'm illegal again. I use the TV mostly as a security device, program it to come on automatically every day at certain times out there and make some noise. It's all coming to a head now, because to enhance the speakers in the TV in town, I should really get these receivers upgraded. And that's when the rest of the day became head spinning. More later. Maybe.
