More than six months after “cutting the cord” from satellite to YouTube TV, I have zero regrets. With all the positives that came with switching, there was one minor situation that left me dumbfounded.
As the pandemic has forced all of us to adjust to a new normal, I reflect on the positives I’m grateful to have in my life in the present, and share a few observations from my time while sheltering at home over the last couple of months.
When I came across a tech article asking when Apple might release a new batch of iPads, I had to make sure the article wasn’t dated April 1st (perhaps a leftover April Fools joke). It wasn’t. And the author was 100 percent serious. After reading his piece, I now have a better understanding as to why.
While flying home from Orlando last week, the same questions and observations that run through my head each time I’m on an airplane inevitably resurfaced. Some of these questions I can easily Google at anytime, but never remember to do so once back on the ground.
“Roundball Rock,” the iconic NBA on NBC theme song, was repurposed over the weekend for Fox’s college basketball tripleheader broadcast. And while there was social media buzz as a result, not everyone was in favor of the idea.
Art Bell provided plenty of radio memories for me while growing up. Both my dad and I enjoyed listening to the discussion of UFOs, alien encounters and time travel – while knowing that most of it was 100 percent nonsense. I’m especially appreciate that his show gave my dad and I one more thing to bond over.
Over the years, I thoroughly enjoyed collecting the various Starbucks “You Are Here” series of mugs while traveling. Unfortunately, that no longer will be an option, while the new series of travel mugs leave me with a “been there, done that” type of mentality.
When buying a new car, would you love to have an experience where you will not be disappointed? I’d rather strive for an experience where I leave feeling happy and positive. Someone ought to share that sentiment with the marketing department at the Muller family of car dealerships.
