Comcast Came Through

I had a very "interesting" experience when I visited a Comcast branch last week.  (See post: "Comcast Waiting Room Surprise").  I wasn't giving the situation much hope because, in years past, we've had appointments not kept and, to be honest, I'm just very skeptical of the whole service and I'm upset with the cost.  Honestly, the cost of having cable television is too high!  I just don't understand.  And with this last encounter I was so ready for our contract to be up and to say 'good-bye' to the whole thing.

An on-line media specialist contacted me through my blog and said that I would receive a call to talk further about my experience.  I received a call that night from a Rep. who had read my blog post.  They were really  nice and personable and we giggled a bit about what had happened.  I was told a technician would be out the next morning to help get our cable hooked up.

Sure enough, 9:45 am a tech. showed up and... pushed one button and... it worked.  One button!  All I had to do was push one button!  But, in my defense I will say that the tech. and I looked over all of the instructions and no where did it say to push this particular button.  He said that more than half his service calls have this result. So this is my gift to you; if you are going through the same experience of setting up a new t.v. to your old cable box and when it prompts you to go to Menu and blah, blah, blah and it still doesn't show a picture?  Push the "Source" button and viola!  Your t.v. will work.

All-in-all every connection I made with a Comcast Rep. was positive and I appreciate how they handled my situation.  Our price hasn't gone down, but our customer service experience was 5-stars.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
