Post 2586 - Tuesday

I have mentioned before that I have scheduled another blog interview for this coming Thursday after my work. I am shaping the questions now, and today received the special bonus questions courtesy of another radio celebrity. The person's questions were excellent, and I am looking forward to sharing them with my subject, and with you guys down the road.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. That is not a profound statement, folks. Wednesday follows Tuesday in this part of the world. But it will likely be the third Wednesday in a row during which there will be a Nor'Easter. I do not look forward to driving home tomorrow evening. If the weather is as bad as the forecast is indicating, then Toastmasters will likely be cancelled for the 3rd week in a row. I am forgetting the names of the people in the club already. I am also struggling to recall the name of the club I'm in.

The tv I picked up on Saturday is fine. I love it. But one thing I don't like, which is not the television's fault, is that no local channels seem to broadcast in 1080p. The best I seem to be able to do is 720p. This means that the HD tv on the main level, the one I got Patricia for Christmas, is not nearly as obsolete as I thought it might be when I bought it in December. From what I am reading, 1080p broadcasts are nowhere near on the horizon around here, due to bandwidth concerns from my cable company. I am not even sure if the over the air channels broadcast in 1080p. I doubt it.

I am not sure what the resolution of my Netflix is. The picture is fine and it fills the screen fully as if it were HD; but if that is HD, then my middle name is Denise. Which it isn't. I promise. Do you actually think my parents would have named me Beverly, and then compounded that obscenity by giving me a woman's name for my middle name as well? Give your head a shake.

Whenever I plop myself down in the chair in my recroom, Newbie is not far behind, plopping himself on my lap, gleefully paying attention to my Bevboys while doing so. If he still had his Newbies, then I'd do to him what he does to me just to show him who's boss.

Anyway, I have to get to work on devising those questions for Thursday.

See you tomorrow.

We receive no signals in 1080p on FibreOP and I was told when I bought my first HD TV that only games are above 780p, although Netflix appears to be a superior quality to the usual HD channels.
