    Where is the lively conversation that FOL used to have?

    First time I have taken a peak over here in a while! I remember putting a "face with a font" at the FOL happy hours at Rover. What fun that was!

    Cutting the cord - is there a good option?

    We have an HD antenna in the attic above a second floor bedroom. Reception is great and picture is better than cable was.

    Question about the proposed Oncor Sub Station

    What is so awful about one of these substations anyway? There is one near Centennial High School between the school and a subdivision and you barely even notice it.

    Cutting the cord - is there a good option?

    We cut cable TV almost 3 years ago and had an HD antenna installed. TWC internet speed is fast enough and with a reliable wifi/router, we can stream Netflix while having adequate bandwidth for other devices in the house. Saved over $100/per month by cutting cable TV and landline.

    Antenna installation

    I recently dumped cable and just have high speed internet. With cable being used for internet, could I still put my antenna in the attic and find a place to connect it? How would I hook into TV if outlet downstairs is used for internet?

    Traffic apps

    I liked Waze for a while, until I saw what a battery hog it was. Uninstalled it after that. Just use Google Maps if I see a problem. I will check out Inrix.

    Replacing the wood posts with metal posts sounds like the best idea. Way less expensive, too. I had a nice fence, with arc trim, etc, put up on my non-shared fence when I replaced it. On the shared fence, my neighbor and I worked together to get it replaced. He bought the materials, me and my...

    Ground Separating from Foundation

    How long are you watering? Best to not turn faucet on full when using soaker hoses. Turn water on enough to fill the entire hose and let it run a long time.

    I was thinking the same thing about the power suddenly popping back on all over the However, this has been a very good season and I like how they have tied the "human experience" to the loss of electricity. Very surprising "twist" to end it, though, don't you think? Has me waiting...
