Today is to start clean up from the raccoon that’s been invading my cooking space outside. It left little greasy foot prints all around my Weber grill. It was tasting the grease in the catcher underneath the Weber. I think it liked it a lot. The raccoon kept coming back and the mess just got bigger.
I worked on getting the portable sat dish working. We’re gonna use it in the little RV. Hey, just hook up the cables to the dish and receiver and it would be done. WRONG. I spent a lot of time on the phone with Direct TV about hooking the HD receiver to a non HD sat dish. Nothing gained with those people. I switched cables and all that. I then called Wingard about their portable sat dish called a Walkabout that I have. These people are good. Bottom line…not working. The only thing they said was to send it them to test/repair ($) OR borrow another receiver from someone and try it. I tried our Direct TV receiver to the TV afterwards just to make sure it still worked like before all this and it did. I was told that our model of Direct TV receiver H24 was kinda of a hit & miss. I think it’s about 3-4 years old when they really stated coming out with the HD. Any other model of receiver should work if it’s not the sat dish itself. O.K. that will go on a back burner for awhile but in the mean time the mobile is a mess. The dish is on the left there but I did have it outside next to the permanent HD dish.Since we live in the big RV it’s OK to have the mobile a little trashed sometimes. At least that’s how I think. Right Carol ?
Mark has some pictures of his and Gail’s family up on a lighted display board. That was neat. Gail’s daughter and husband flew in from New York. If I had to guess how many friends showed up it would have to be 50+. It was nice……….
