We switched on our solar panels today. We anticipate this will save us an enormous amount of money. Our electrical bills were huge. If you are reading this and you do not live on San Diego, you have no idea. For some reason, electric bills are huge here. I think San Diego Gas & Electric has minks on treadmills generating power, and feeds the minks caviar.
Julie gets all the credit for the solar transition. She did the research and dealt with the contractors and bank. Go Julie.
Also, we cut the cord on cable.
Or, rather, I called Cox intending to just cut off our TV service from them entirely, and use Roku to consume all our programming. However, Cox said if we paid $3/mo more than our Internet service, we could keep our basic cable and DVR too.
I was tempted to offer to pay them $10/mo to take away their awful DVR and not torment us with it anymore. Holy cow that DVR is awful. But in the end I succumbed to reason.
I expect we’ll be watching most of our shows on the DVR anyway — most of our series are network shows. However this does mean we’ll be watching DOCTOR WHO and GAME OF THRONES on Roku.
This will save us a decent amount of money too. We subscribed to a ton of premium channels that frankly we only watched part of the year, or not at all.
