My brother and I’s 100acre ranch home was once in the boon docks. The closest place to eat and get groceries was about 10 miles in each direction and the only thing available was a land line.
Lately, the area has seen some growth with new construction both residential and commercial. There is a Waffle House, liquor store Subway, Pizza Hut and a Dollar General to grab groceries and other household items that you would need in a pinch.
We’ve always had DirecTV because nothing else was available. Now that streaming has become a thing the only service I am able to get is through a 10g hot spot that I pay Tmobile $40 per month.
I am now petitioning COmcast/Xfinity to please run a line through our community because its now at least 13 residential properties that want better service. The others have DSL through AT&T.
I’ve mapped out where current service is and where it is needed.
I’ve contacted Comcast via their website and did get a Service Request started but this was the result:
Then I tried again late last year:
Now I have resorted to talking to my neighbors and getting them on board which allowed me to map things out to let Comcast know that they are missing easily $1,000 per month in new revenue. I have even resorted to mailing them a letter once a week until something happens. I just hope I have the correct address.

I received a response through Twitter and now I have to talk to my neighbors and get them to each call and submit a “Serviceability Request”

This morning I received a text from my neighbor 3 doors down, lol, telling me that someone had pushed over our trash bins and made a mess.
I quickly jumped into action to see what I could see on my NestCam system and sure enough, 2 guys come down the street around 3:30am and go through all of our trash bins. Knocking them over and sift through them and leaving a mess for us to clean them up.
So stupid, I mean, if they were hungry, I suppose I’d understand but wouldn’t you go to a commercial dumpster of a restaurant to get grub? Idk, maybe they were looking for paperwork that we had thrown away to steal our identities. Hmmmm….
Here is the video footage of the action sped up 2x and 20x. You can’t really make out their faces but you could see what they were wearing, the time they hit our houses and the direction they came and went.

On this episode, I chose Days Gone, a game I have completed at least 3 times and at the end of the story you’re tasked to go around and clear up zombie hordes.
This is one of the best updates from Days Gone. You can reset the Zombie and Ambush Camp tasks so you can do them over and over again. Now all the game needs to be able to do is to redo the story but with all your acquired guns. Hopefully, they’ll listen.
My daughters love shopping at Thrift Stores and yesterday they went to Value Village and came back with 2 bags full of clothes.
I encouraged them to make a Haul Video and here it goes:
Origami is one of the coolest things I’ve seen done to paper!
From Wiki: Origami (折り紙, from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper” (kami changes to gami due to rendaku)) is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word “origami” is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. Modern origami practitioners generally discourage the use of cuts, glue, or markings on the paper. Origami folders often use the Japanese word kirigami to refer to designs which use cuts, although cutting is more characteristic of Chinese papercrafts.
Who ever took the time to come up with these folding designs are geniuses!! There are so many designs, birds, animals, flowers, etc. you can make. And YouTube and the web have made it easy to teach yourself!!
As elementary schoolers we all at one point or another made little footballs out of a dollar bill.
The next popular one that I can remember is the frog and definitely the crane
While perusing YouTube, I found a channel that taught me to make an envelope. So I took a break from the daily grind and peacefully made an envelope. No I did not color it. Nor did I have any Origami paper handy because it seems like all designs need a square piece of paper. But you can take any regular 8½x11 to make your own. I folded mine in half, the folded them again and had 2 working pieces of origami paper.
Then I was ready to learn from the following YouTube Video:
