Well, I'm afraid I wouldn't impress you very much. Just an old short fat man is all I am anymore. But I do like Brownies!

Sunday all the children were to come out for dinner and the Wife baked up a storm for them. Then due to the weather and colds only half of them showed up. Well, we gave away a lot of it out of self defense, but there was this pan of lemon bars that somehow remained, so for three mornings now it's been coffee and a lemon bar, or maybe two. :D

did you ever do something and later ask yourself, is that really a good idea .. :?: :?: :?: .. the campground road by our camper is a very tight two lanes wide .... as can be seen in the pictures I posted a couple of days ago, I had to setup our portable dish antenna and in doing so placed it pretty close to the edge of the road .... in retrospect, I realized that almost certainly wasn't the best of ideas .... during a lull in the rain, I moved it to the location shown below .... once again, the Satellite Finder app shown in earlier post came in handy .... that's certainly nothing major but it sure has reduced my level of paranoia ..

​earlier today while driving cross Alabama on our way home from Texas, Maureen called DISH RV to ask them to switch our local station reception back to our home area (Raleigh, NC) ..... her call was placed on hold and that hold lasted something over 20 minutes .... must say, their recorded message got old in a hurry .... the first thing the lady who answered the call did was to apologize for the lengthy wait time .... she went on to say they had been caught off guard by a large number of calls from customers who were sheltering at home due to the Coronavirus and wanted to increase their number of channels .... as was the case when we changed to get local Texas channels, it only took her a minute or so to make the switch .... after doing so she apologized all over again .... :D

UPDATE :

with Dish's pay as you go RV pricing program, we've decided to add satellite TV reception to our second camper .... we've decided to use our Carryout 2+ as the portable dish for that system and have purchased a Pathway X2 ===> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G1 ... UTF8&psc=1 for use with our camper .... the Carryout (first picture) works perfectly and should continue to provide good service .... the advantages offered by the Pathway will really come in handy .... those include :

a larger dish which results in as stronger received signal .... at least theoretically, having a much stronger signal may well reduce our signal loss from bad weather ..... readings taken with the Carryout and Pathway placed on the same spot .... the 3 main DISH satellites are in what they call their western arc :

Dish Satellite # 110 signal strength 45 with our Carryout, 62 with the Pathway


Dish Satellite # 119 signal strength 25 with our Carryout, 59 with the Pathway


Dish Satellite # 129 signal strength 30 with our Carryout, 53 with the Pathway


in addition the Pathway is the only portable automatic antenna that is capable of locking onto signals from DISH's Eastern Arc satellites #'s 61.5°, 72.7°, 77°.... over time we've camped on sites many times when the southwest was blocked but the southeast was much more open ....
