No coffee, never developed a taste... Showers at night....relaxing and put me to sleep. I just have always gotten up, I have been a morning person... but don't want to talk to anyone for an hour or so.....I used to go out and feed my animals as a kid, then ride the horse for nearly an hour then come in get changed and get on the bus for school at 7. That is probably why I liked testing... up and out early in the milking barn. Now at this age, with the joints... early is not as enticing.

My DirecTV quit on me a couple days ago. I ordered a new remote. It's here, can't get even the first step done. My TV is nothing but static, the receiver is not responding, I'm getting nothing.

Step one; press MENU on your remote
Step two; select SETTINGS >REMOTE CONTROL > PROGRAM REMOTE.

Plus a list of other things to do. Only problem is, I press Menu and get nothing.

I finally got off hold and got a tech specialist. She had me doing all kinds of stuff. Press this , what is on the screen? Using the up/down on the receiver, scroll down, press enter. What codes are on the screes? Enter #10766. What is the number on the remote upper left corner (had to get a magnifying glass to see it) Press exit, do you have a picture now? YES! YES! I HAVE A PICTURE! press the volume. I press volume and nothing happens. Over all, I was on the phone over two hours. BUT I have a picture! Not only that, but I can change channels! The volume doesn't work. I actually have to WALK to the TV and press up or down! It takes me back to my childhood when TV was black and white, there was 3 stations and you changed the channel by turning a knob. Same thing with the volume, get up, walk to the TV and turn a knob to change the volume. No sitting in a recliner with a remote back then! Haha

So something is wrong with the new remote. They will call me back tomorrow. Eh

I am dreading trying to get the TV hooked up here....I am NO TECHIE..... seems like I went through a bunch of that on the phone, press this, type in that, try holding down these 2 buttons on the computer not too long ago....
I am not looking forward to it....but I think I really will welcome it for some things again... been 10 years or more since I had one in the house...for TV.... I have used the old one for the dvd's and vhs tape players....
