The Reason For The Change!

For quite a few months, we had this random green spot that would appear on our TV. Sometimes it would go away pretty fast, but other times it would stay there for a while. So I decided to jump into action before the TV decided to stop working.

I bought us a new TV. I moved the Armoire out of the way and set it up on a small table to begin with. I didn't know that it was going to be there for 2 weeks. :~(

That's how long it took to finally get a technician from Dish Network to our house to install a new satellite dish for our HD. They were supposed to be here on a Thursday, but after sitting here until 2:30, they called and canceled. Then they were supposed to be here on the following Tuesday, but called at 1:30 and canceled again. They finally showed up Thursday and got the new equipment hooked up.

I was finally able to do the rest of the installation. After a few small issues, (the chimney is behind this wall) I got the mounting bracket up on the wall. The chimney isn't used any more since our water heater is electric and the new furnace is vented out through the wall, but I still had to drill four 1/2" holes into it.

I finished hanging it on the Saturday before the Super Bowl.

So, without the armoire there, we decided to move our rocking chair to the corner to the right of the new TV. That gave us room by the fireplace to buy the 2 new chairs in THIS POST.

Isn't technology amazing? The difference between a HD TV and the older models is incredible! Enjoy!
