Welcome Mr. President

First, I would like to thank President Barack Hussein Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden and their staff for everything they have done for the past 8 years.

Welcome to the new President Donald John Trump and Vice President Michael Richard Pence and their staff.
Let’s see what the next 4 years will bring about.

To quote the President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it — and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.
And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.

RIP Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka

Today, I am saddened by the death of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka at the age of 73. While his main wrestling career was years before my time, he will leave a lasting legacy with the wrestling industry.

The highlight of your career was years before I was even born but it continues to impact myself and the wrestlers I continue to watch today. October 17, 1983, in a steel cage match at Madison Square Garden in a match against Don Muraco, you made a leap that changed the lives of many. This is the memory that I will remember about you.

Fly high.

Cordcutting

To start off on the new year, my wife and I decided to cancel our cable to save some money. We are saving about $80 a month via Time Warner.  We already had a Netflix subscription and WWE Network subscription, so we already had plenty of content to watch besides cable programs. My wife also had an Amazon Prime subscription so we could search for programming on that as well if we couldn’t agree on a Netflix solution.

We also have a habit of watching Twitch streams as well. When my wife and I originally moved into our house we started without cable service for 6 months. We then had cable for about a year. We originally got cable to watch live sports but have decided to give that up.

We are currently in the process of looking into getting an antenna to capture some local channels available of the air.  We are also looking into all the different streaming platforms. Currently we are using our Xbox One and an Amazon Fire Stick. All of our TVs are smart TVs but we don’t really use that function of the TV. We have a Playstation that we could use for streaming options as well but don’t use it that often.

One streaming option we are looking into is the History Vault, but at this time the only place we could watch it is on a computer which currently doesn’t suit of home setup. Although we are looking at Rokus to try so we may be trying History Vault shortly after the Roku.

Here is to a new year and new adventures.

New Host, New Blog, New Year

Greetings all,

I recently just switched hosting providers for this blog. I went from Stablehost to Digtal Ocean. With this switch I wanted to start from scratch to try some new things out.

In regards to Stablehost, I still have a couple of sites hosted on their service, and only switched to try out a service with a different outlook on web hosting. My past experiences with web hosting providers I was using cPanel as the main backend, but with Digital Ocean I am trying a different way to manage the website to further my understanding of ssh.

And with the new year approaching it is a good time to try different things.

Welcome to the new blog!
