Cable TV, don;t talk me about it LOL!

Goodmorning everybody!

Starting the 1st of September our cable company, which provides us our tv channels, thought it might be nice to extend the offer. Well, nice thought, but suddenly we missed several channels! E.g. our Crime/detective channel. That was in an extra subscription we pay for, together with some Discovery channels, on top of the regular channels. I wasn;t happy about that, mind you, I payed extra for that and just like that, they remove it! Okay, yesterday morning I phoned the company, and asked the nice guy at the telephone an explanation. In short: they have 3 subscriptions now, TV z1m TV plus and TV extra. No more extra subscriptions for a bundle specials, like we had, they are now included in.................yes, you guessed well, in the PLUS (some of them) ad all in the EXTRA.!!! And of course our package was in the EXTRA now. And to keep it short, if we want our extra channels, it costs us a few Euros more, OF COURSE!  This apart from the annusance that when they change channels, we also have to reprogram them on our tv( you can make your own "favourite list with channels you watch often which is handier, cause you can give them a channel number a bit more logical than the tv company does). I must say the guy at the telephone was very patient with me, explained it all very clear to me, no bad word about that. The end of it all is that we changed our subscription to the most extended offer, and hopefully this will stay a long time as it is now LOL! I asked the guy too, how long it should take to give us our extra channels back again on our tv and he answered that it shouldn't take more than 48 hours. Hmmmmm, I could live with that, but to my utmost pleasure already ysterday mid-evening we had them all again.
What I mind most of those things is that they just change things as they please and at the end it always costs you some money!
But okay, we have a lot of extra channels, and one of them might even be nice or interesting.

It looks as if today we are going to have a real summerday! And tomorrow also, so perhaps we should enjoy that. Well, I already did about all the grocerie shopping that was necessary and also some housecleaning Wednesday and yesterday, just need to do a laundry. I have no idea what we shall do today, if we go somewhere or that we'll stay home, catching some sun in our garden. Difficult desicion ROFL!
First of all I think I will take another cup of coffee and then we'll just see what today has in store for us.
I have for you the 2nd part of the "Passage to India"kit.
Have a mighty nice weekend, see you on Monday!

Hello Kyra thank you so very much for the second part of Passage To India...its gorgeous. Hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you do and the weather stays kind for you. Here we have had a thunder storm....the rain has finally stopped now but its still so dismal outside. On the plus side of things though my garden will have appreciated all the rain we've had today so its not too bad..LOL

Good morning Kyra. I understand your frustration with the cable company. Wouldn't it be nice if we could increase our incomes so easily too? Hopefully, there will be some really interesting new channels there for you.

You have a great weekend my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

Thank you for the Passage to India kit. I have lots of photos of India from my childhood on route to the Far East, so looking forward to using it.
