I have been watching some of the Star Trek videos on the Star Trek website. I mentioned before that I thought it was odd that CBS and Time Warner Cable resolved their dispute but never made an announcement. I think I figured out how they resolved it.
My cable bill went from $34/month to $43/month. Enjoy the jet, Les. My mom has Verizon FiOS and she loves it. I live in an apartment complex, so I am stuck with Time Warner.
I have no desire to ever own a house. My father started out owning a house, but eventually he was owned by the house, and he cared more about his house than the people in it. Plus I have no desire to spend any time or money working on a lawn. It seems like if you own a house, you have to have a lawn, preferable St Augustine, the most expensive and thirsty species of grass. And you have to have one because the jackass next to you has one. I don’t know if I could define “freedom”, but that is not it.
An interesting fact about The Next Generation: When that series started Patrick Stewart was 47. He looked like he was in his 60s. Granted, he’s in his 70s and still looks like he’s in his 60s, so I guess he is doing something right.
