Cutting the Cord on Cable TV's Pricey Monthly Bill

Cutting the Cord on Cable TV's Pricey Monthly Bill
OK, so you can't stand to miss Bravo'sThe Real Housewives of Atlanta or those great documentaries on The History Channel (we admire your eclectic tastes), but are those steep cable bills making you want to pull out your hair along with the cable wires? Take a deep breath. The era of digitized content is ushering in a new wave of cost-saving viewing: From streaming-video websites to digital media providers, these alternatives to cable TV might prompt you to chuck the cable box for good. The High Cost of Cable For the price that many Americans pay for cable TV, they can enjoy a mini vacation. A digital cable package from Comcast, for example, costs $551.98 per year, just for the basics. Comcast's high-end premium package -- complete with on-demand channels -- will set you back $1,277 annually.

ADHD – A Day in the Life | Here is one of the best descriptions of ADHD I’ve ever seen! (Author unknown) I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first. But then I think, since I’m going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I’d been drinking. I’m going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over.
