A Change of Plans in Louisville

After living on my own for nearly twelve years now, with several moves in-between (two of which to different states) I’ve come to realize that high speed Internet seems to be the same no matter where I go – except for one company. Insight Communications had been the primary provider in Louisville, KY for years and years. They were awesome – incredibly fair prices while offering great speeds despite the cheap bundles. They even gave free Internet to families who qualified under a certain criteria, like having children in school, so they could help further their education. When I was in New York and Georgia, the ISPs there were nothing like Insight. After moving back to Louisville, I was shocked to learn that Insight had been bought out by Time Warner and would be soon merging with the company. Customers of Insight were given a single year to prepare for changes and boy, what changes they were! I can’t believe that another company could come into the area with such force, completely changing the pricing as well as doing away with several speeds in order to justify the costs of their higher speeds. While Insight Communications had a 10 MB/s plan, Time Warner only has 15 at nearly $20 dollars more. It’s honestly disappointing that Time Warner would completely disregard years of excellent service. Why not jsut keep the same plans, the same speeds and allow the people here who have been with Insight for ten years or more to continue on with what they were already paying for. It wouldn’t have been difficult to adjust the billing for the Louisville area in their system but unfortunately, Time Warner is more interested in getting the most out of their customers rather than being able to give back to them as they should.

It is Nice to Be Able to Choose Texas Power Companies for Electrical Service

I can drive through town and choose from countless grocery stores to shop at. Since we are on a budget, we choose the big department store that has a giant grocery section because they have the lowest prices. I can also choose which gas station to get gas at. And, you guessed it, I pick the lowest price for gas for our car. I am also happy to report that I can choose Texas power based on price, fixed versus variable rates and even my ethics if I so choose. That gives me freedom that not everyone in the country enjoys yet.

I think most places are deregulated as far as power companies and other utilities go. There are probably some states holding out with one big company holding a monopoly over the utility consumers. My brother back east only got his freedom to choose his electrical service provider a few years ago. We have had it for a good while here in Texas. However, I am not sure if everyone knows how it works. All you have to do is ask for your electricity provider's kilowatt hour rates, and then go shopping. Make sure you know if you are already on a fixed or variable rate plan.

In my experience, the fixed rate plans work out best for people on our budget. There are no surprises with your electricity bill with a fixed rate. You pay per kilowatt hour what the plan says. A variable rate will go up and down as the markets go up and down. Consider electricity a commodity. It goes up and down with the stock market rates. A low variable rate is great, but what if it goes up for a month? It is better, in my opinion, to pay one low fixed rate per kilowatt hour for electricity.

A Great Role Model for Women

Finding Joanna Shields on Facebook was so helpful to my college studies. Let me explain, I am a political science major and one of the assignments we had was to talk about a women in political power today. That would definitely be Joanna Shields. She is a true inspiration to women everywhere.I think role models are a very important thing for both women and men, but for women it can be very hard to actually find women who you feel that you want to emulate. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of successful women, but what did they do to make themselves successful and what do they stand for. That is just two of the things I like to ask myself when I am looking at a career of a successful woman.

For example, there are a lot of singers that are women, and it seems like the only way they get noticed is if they take their clothes off and crawl on the floor. These seem to be demeaning things to do. As a woman I want to show a positive aspect to being a woman. I want young girls growing up behind me to know that showing your sexuality is not the only way to get noticed in this world. In fact it makes me very sad when I see women like Miley Cyrus, and how she feels the only way she can stand out in a crowd is to take her clothes off and grind on stage with a married man,One day when I have children, will talk to them about self respect and show them that men and women need to respect each other and not just see each other as a sexual conquest. That showing your respect for yourself will always help you get respect from others.

Getting Our Furnace Fixed Did Not Wreck Our Tight Budget

... heating system which combines solar energy with advanced wood pelletI was worried about the furnace yesterday morning. I got up last night because it was cold in the house. We normally turn the heat down when we go to bed and back up in the morning. It got too cold too fast. I got up around three and checked the thermostat. It was much colder than it was set to. I turned it up, but it would not come on. I hooked up a couple of space heaters staying up all night. In the morning I called a place that does heating repair in Morris County NJ.

We only had a little bit of money left in our checking account. We do not have any credit cards. We live on a very tight budget and just paid a major winter bill. We would have to wait a month to recover from the cost of that bill. Then the furnace goes out. The place I called had a set fee for a service call. I needed to know what was wrong even if we could not afford to get it fixed right then. We survived using space heaters and having someone keep watch all night while they were running years ago. We would just do it again if necessary.

When the tech guy arrived he took a look at the furnace. It was an older one that still had easy to obtain parts. He said it was a really popular brand and model. The part to fix it was not very expensive at all. The cost of the service call and the part together was within what we had left in our account. We still had money left to buy food and to put gas in the minivan. Many people reading this know what I am talking about because they live on tight budgets too. However, do not be afraid to call a professional to help you. It might be a lot less expensive to fix a needed appliance than you think.

Looking for a Nicer Place to Live

Hannah and I have been saving up our money for a good while. We had been staying in one of the least expensive apartments in Columbia SC that we could find, even though we did not like it all that much for a variety of reasons. I never liked living in apartments, mainly because I sleep lightly and most of them have very poor sound insulation properties. So if you have a neighbor who is noisy you know it and the big thing is when you have a different schedule from the people around you. It seems like the people who lived around us must have worked until 10 PM and then partied until the break of dawn every day. I got to the point where I want to do something overly dramatic about it, but the fact is that it is your own fault for choosing to live in the same complex with random people.

Of course our plan all along was to save up enough money for the down payment on a house in the suburbs, but we got to thinking that we could likely rent a house for less than we are paying in rent for this apartment. It was something I learned from a guy I know who dabbles in real estate. The houses he rents are not as nice as what we would want to get, they are more modest and aimed at lower income families I guess. However he only charges a fraction of what an apartment costs and says that he makes good money off it so long as all of the places stay fully occupied. The master plan is to slowly pay down all of the debt on the houses and then at some point all of the money that comes in he gets to pocket.

Going to Try to Get a New Car

It will not be easy, but I am thinking about how I can afford to get a new car. Of course it would be best if I were able to go to a bank and get a car loan, but in fact I am more likely to a candidate for one of those cash advance loans from advanceloan.net or a place like that. Of course they want you to pay them a pretty healthy rate of interest when you borrow from them and it does not make a lot of sense for me to do that to tell the truth about it. If you were not scared of paying interest on a loan it would not be a big deal, but I am sort of tight with my money and I do not want to pay for a thing that does not do any good to me. If I buy a car, I want to pay for the car. I do not want to pay for the right to buy a car.

I have a car that is worth a bit of money, but it is not very nice. It was wrecked before I bought it and that makes it drive a bit odd and it looks like a mess as well. The guy I bought it from got a big check to pay for it after some guy crashed in to it. However he did a calculation and figured that he could sell the car to me, then turn around and buy a new car with that money and the money he got from the insurance company. Of course there is a good bit of body damage on it and that is not great. In fact I think that makes it cost a bit more to drive because it hurts the gas mileage.

Started Grad School This Morning

It was a pretty close thing, because I needed to get some grant money in order to be able to do this. I have a teaching assistant's job working with the UK Computer Science Department, but that does not go as far as you might like it to go. If you look at the cost of living then you figure out what you need. I had to have one of the cheapest Lexington apartments that could be found and I did not want to have to share a place with some random person I found on the internet. That never works out and if it goes bad, then you can really end up on the short end of the deal. You do not want to go in halves with some guy you do not really know and then get in a position where you are relying upon him doing what he says that he will do. In fact he might not be able to do that for all sorts of reasons.

At any rate the grant money came through, but it was late and then I had to run around like a chicken which had had it's head cut off. There was all of this stuff that needed to be done and I was pretty lucky that the people at the school really wanted to help me out. The professor was keen for me to take the job, mainly because he is sort of the lazy sort and he likes to have his work done for him. He is convinced that I can help him do his job a lot more easily than he can do it with no help from me. Of course he wanted me because another professor had swooped in and stolen the guy that he had pegged for the job.

Bought Myself a Camper Trailer

Diego Forlán fichó para Directv UruguayI am not talking about one of those pop up trailers that is about the size of a tent when you get done. This is a really big trailer that is about the size of a mobile home. I had to get a fifth wheel trailer hitch put on my truck and in fact it I did not have a nice truck it would be too much trailer for me to get up a hill. This thing already has a Directv in fact, although it is missing the little thing that makes it work. It is almost luxurious compared to the way that I was camping out. I had a little tent and it was not really big enough for me and the girlfriend to share. In fact we were looking for another tent and we probably still get a nice big tent. We go up to the lake and camp out. A lot of places do not have the spot to park one of these.

My idea is pretty much to rent out a space in the campground near the lake. They have a boat launch and some docks. I would need to make sure I had a clear view of the right part of the sky. I am thinking that this is the only practical idea really. I have one truck and it is not going to be practical to try to pull the boat and this behemoth at the same time. So the only idea that makes sense is to have one of them up at the lake. A lot of people have campers up here and they keep them there. I need to get that little credit card like thing that makes the satellite box work though. I may as well switch to satellite at home too.

When a Contender Enters the Market

When I decided that I had enough of Comcast, I chose Directv to be the provider that I could put my faith into. After years of customer abuse from Comcast, it only made sense that I would switch services - I just cannot believe that it took me this long to finally get the nerve to do it. I am somewhat ashamed that I allowed myself to be so taken in by digital quality cable Internet - it's the one that I kept me a prisoner to their company due to the fact that I work from home and often need a reliable connection.

And yet, the connection was never as reliable as it could have been. It seems like at least once a month I would not have my service for multiple days and waiting for a technician to arrive would eat up hours or even days at a time if they didn't show up; an experience that happened more than once. Is it really a surprise that Comcast is trying to expand their cover to most of the United States by merging with Time Warner Cable? They'll become the dominant provider which is no doubt a direct reaction to Google's entry into the market.

Google is certainly making waves with their appearance. When you have entire cities practically begging for Google Fiber to come to their town, the competition suddenly becomes quite aware of just how pecarious their positions really are. Nobody has begged Time Warner or Comcast - they're just a necessary presence. No, Google can offer more than any current provider can. They have the money, the desire and even the need to connect more Americans to the web whereas TWC and Comcast grudgingly provide the services to their customers - the Internet is a direct threat to their main source of profits!

Deals when Switching Television Providers

I am under the impression that a variety of television providers will offer you a deal, when you switch to their television service. It is not a long-term deal, but rather, an introductory deal, that is used to get you to switch. I know that sometimes they raise your prices, after the introductory period is over. But I am going to be looking for a better television service, and a introductory price sounds like a good thing to me. I am looking at Direct TV in Westfield and the deals that will be available to me in this area. I think that the deals vary by location, but I do not have direct proof of that.

I will be curious to see what sort of deals they will offer me right now. I am fairly sure that I want to make this switch. I will need to gather more details though. I try to weigh every decision that I make, and to make cautious decisions. That is definitely the case, when it comes to money. I am often wary of spending more money than I have to, but this is probably something that will be worth it to me.

I have always liked to have quality television programming available to me, and I also have a big family. My big family has diverse tastes in television, so that makes it more important to have a lot of television channels. I know that Direct TV will provide me with more channels than I currently have. I am not sure how many channels we have at this present moment, but I am not going to go and sit down, and actually count every single channel. It is not as many as what I saw advertised for Direct TV though, and that is pretty obvious.

Treat Us Like Actual Customers

Macross Frontier (TV 1 - 25 End) DVD + 2 MoviesWith the country's Internet Service Providers seemingly losing their collective heads from yesterday's FCC coup which has scheduled the Internet as a utility, much like water, Americans are getting a show that hasn't been seen since Ma Bell was broken up. The chokehold that the current crop of well known ISPs (Verizon, Comcast, AT&T and Time Warner) have had on the American people is soon coming to an end. I like to consider myself pretty lucky compared to most of the country since living in CT means I get access to Frontier CT. They are without a doubt one of the better providers in the U.S.

I've had the unfortunate experience of having been a customer of nearly every single large ISP and my experience with them has been nothing but horrible. Everything from issues to billing to basic technical issues with my Internet service, they have been nothing but a trial to work with. Why does it have to be like this at all? As customers, we deserve to be treated with respect. When we call with a problem we should be able to have that problem fixed: instead we're often suggested more packages and services we should upgrade to.

This is the distinction. Calling a professional ought to be simply that: calling them to fix our current problem at hand. The officials have concluded that you have to be sold something at all levels of a call. This is the way little they really think about you. You're not somebody bringing in with an issue, you're a potential client bringing in that they can offer another bundle to. It's ludicrous that they think to treat us like this! I simply need my Internet, I need it to work and I need it to function admirably. In the event that I needed all else, I'd call that office.
