Do you mean True Blood? That's on HBO, which I no longer get. But they did just start their second season. Or are you talking about Moonlight? That hasn't been on here for about 3 weeks. I wonder if they're going to bring it back.

If you hear let me know!

Hugs,

True Blood. Dang I was hoping it was on Showtime which I now get for the next three months FREE!! My satallite provider gave me three months free for being a valued customer (yea right!!! They jacked up the prices once again!)

Hugssssss

Scarred,
I know - all these so-called "offers" and then they tack on fee after fee after fee. I was even toying the other day with what it would be like with NO tv. Seriously. I'm in an area with poor reception so I have to have basic cable or some other alternative in order to get even the local stations or I would. But with the fact I live alone and am so isolated and do absolutely nothing else for recreation (except visit the Humane Society!) the tv is about the only solace I have. Heck, can't even eat my M&M's anymore and this bland diet and lack of eating for hours before bedtime is driving me bonkers, too.

But with the way finances are going this house may get very quiet very soon. Maybe just books and DVD's from the library. I still do those, but hearing the news and watching Animal Planet is kind of nice.

But no more True Blood. Hope they come back with another season of Moonlight. I actually prefer that to True Blood. Like the high tech stuff!

Hugs,

PaLady

PA: I have not gotten to see the show yet but it really looks good. There is also another one called Blood Ties that was on for a short time alike to Moonlight. Its got a Vamp on it and suppose to be real good as well.

I soooo hope that they bring Moonlight back!!

Scarred,
Where/when is Blood Ties on? I'm missing my vampire shows - and never in a million years did I ever think I'd write those words! LOL

I know you can't get the curren't season but we have found many new (to us) tv series at blockbuster that we have enjoyed watching... (In case you end up turning off your cable, that is an option. And the older series (like last years) often come 4-5 on one disc and you can rent them for .99. Pretty reasonable in my opinion!
I have had migraines for 27 years. I have tried so many meds I have forgotten their names...

I also have chronic back pain due in part to a car accident in 2005.  I have also been diagnosed with facet disease which was aggravated by the accident and started the flare up.  3 bulging discs to the left.  Lower back pain that goes down my right leg to my knee....
 
Currently taking Oxycodone, MS Contin, Gabapentin Verapamil, Fioricet, Migrainal, Prozac, prednisone,  and having repeat injections in my facets and nerve ablation.

Thanks, purple!

Since I don't see movies out anymore there are a lot of things at Blockbuster or through Netflix I can find that will be new to me! It's exactly what I intend to do!!

PA, I understand the reception thing and the need for basic cable. In the event you do away with the basic, you can buy a set of rabbit ears at Wally World for your tv and be able to pull in some tv stations. I cannot tell you the last time I saw a movie or a 30 minute tv show, I don't watch tv lol. I do not even know the names of shows on tv, all greek to me. Oh wait, I take it back, I have watched a few recorded kid shows w/grandson,lol.

I have rabbit ears. It's about my location. They don't pull in even the local stations. TV is something that's a companion of sorts for me, especially living alone. And I do enjoy keeping up on current events through CNN and the like. It's about my only recreation.

Anyway, I was just answering Scarred's question on this thread.

PA lady,
We watched 3 seasons of Heros in one month and cought up to it.... IT is pretty good, and the tv shows are much cheaper than the movies.

also, If there is a movie you want to watch, find it at a red box (walmarts usually have them as well as mcdonalds....) They charge you $1 per day for a new release as compared to blockbusters $5.99 for one night. OUTRAGEOUS in my opinion.....

HTH!

Thats awful you can't even get it with rabbit ears. We would either have to put up an antenna on the roof which will not happen because of storms here or like you have the cable cause of no reception. I hear ya on the news, I try reading mine on the puter to keep up lol. I use to listen to the news in the mornings when I worked and was getting ready for work. I think I got out of the mode of tv watching because I could never get comfy anywhere with my back. We have tv's in every room in this house except my puter room. Hubby is a movie buff and he is now renting them from NetFlix and loves it-cheaper than Blockbuster was so he says. Hope you can hang onto your cable.

Thanks all for the suggestions.

I hope to hang onto at least basic cable, although that's really only local channels. I was also wishing I had the money to buy a small flat screen (or newer computer) and maybe try to bundle things and just watch the streaming video. But I suspect by the time I bought all the equipment it would end up costing more. Everytime I get one of those 'deals' from the phone company or someone by the time they tack all the fees on it's way more. Seems hard to know exactly what something costs anymore! But for the immediate future I'm going to hang onto the cable. My head is swimming in all this other paperwork. Got the numbers for my taxes roughed out today, but now have to load them into Turbo Tax and pray I don't owe anything! Then there's this application for my annuity I was just looking at and it might as well be written in Greek. The guy on the phone said he'd walk me through it, but I'm afraid of what I might be agreeing to. And all the SSD stuff. I may have a question or two for you before I finalize things Susie! I just heard our Governor announce that if the state Senate votes on it there may be another 7 week extension on unemployment. I know I'm starting to tread a thin line here, as reality is sinking in more (though I still pray for some miracle...). But it would help get me through this time of collecting medical records and all the other stuff. Likely closing up the remainder of my business which is going to take enormous energy.

Hugs and sweet dreams to everyone. This GERD/Barrett's stuff is really keeping me up even later trying not to go to bed with food in my stomach!

Awe PaLady, I know you are struggling with all the paperwork. I really wish at this point since so much time has gone by that you would have just filed for your SS to get that rolling and then collect the medical records and forward them soon after. You have that 6 months before a decision is made anyway there would have been time for that. Its tough filing for it. its not the forms, they are easy, its the mental thing attached, its like ok, its final this is how it is, I know been there & done that. But its doable. I don't think thats a word lol.

What do you mean by having to work for your lousy couple of hours tomorrow, are you working at a job or what? Did not understand that comment? Try talking to the annuity guy on a day you are fresh and have not done anything, it will be a little easier that way.

I sat here last night and munched on a few CheezeIt crackers, wrong, I ended up with acid coming out my mouth and nose, it was awful. It was like fire.

My jake is licking a paw and he has a swollen spot on top, walking on 3 legs, I cannot find any kind of sore on his foot. Have to have him at the vet at 8:30 and I cringe at that thought. Six weeks ago it was $370 at the vet, more than my visits. I have a dr appt at 10:30 for a pump refill, hubby may have to take over at the vets office.

It will get better, right, it just has too, i hope. Let me know about your ?'s on SS will help anyway I can.

PAlady, I'm in Ohio and on my SSDI claim I had to fill out release forms so they can get my records from my doctors past & present.  I tried to hand them some film reports from 2002 but they wouldn't take them at the SS office.  They said they would contact my doctors for all reports.  Maybe it's different where you live.  This information was at the end of the online application.

As far as movies go, our library has a website and you can request any movie and they will retrieve them from libraries throughout the Ohio region.  It is free and gives you more of a selection.  Also, if you are unable to get out easily they have a program where they will deliver to your home every two weeks.  They bring your new items & pick up your used items.  It is a very good program.  While doing home health I recommended this to several of my clients and got them set up on it.  They really appreciated it and didn't know it was available.

Let me guess, you all got hooked on vampire shows after watching Dark Shadows!! Barnabus & Angelic scared the jeepers out of me. It came on shortly after I got off the school bus, I'd be so excited I couldn't run fast enough to the house.

What is with all the Vampire stuff? I remember seeing several post about it in the past! I do remember seeing that one show on TV for a while called Moonlight or something but that was a couple of years ago I believe.  I only watched it a few times, though it was kind of  odd, but the guy could do some pretty neat stuff! Anyway is that the new trend for people, vampires? Or not to sound sexist or anything is this Vampire thing a craze among women? I better shut up or  I am afraid I am going to get myself in the  Dog House! smilewinkgrin

ROFL!!!

Ya know, I think White Beard may be onto something. The male leads in Moonlight and True Blood are hot, hot, hot! LOL

I was NEVER into any vampire stuff before True Blood and I just stumbled into that and it kind of got fun. Then Scarred told me about Moonlight and you're right White Beard those vamps can do some really cool things. I kind of like it for that reason, too. Love watching Moonlight as it's more updated with all the technology.

So LL what channel is this Vampire Diaries on? Do you know how it compares to True Blood and Moonlight?

I can't believe I'm asking about this stuff!!!

p.s. Susie there are just certain details I don't want to post here, ok?

It will be on WB.  Its a book series just like true blood so I guess we all will have to watch it and report back what we think...
 
Yes they do neat things even drink blood..lol
