How Much Internet Speed Do You Really Need?

Tomislav Pinter/Shutterstock Internet service providers always want to sell you a faster connection. But forget marketing: How much speed do you really need? The answer is more complicated than you might expect. Higher speed tiers aren’t always worth the money. Internet connection speeds are usually measured in megabits per second, often written as Mbps. It takes eight megabits to form one megabyte, so if you have a 1000 Mbps connection (gigabit), it will take 8 seconds to download a 1 GB ...

The Cheapest Ways to Get Netflix on Your TV

You don’t have to buy a smart TV to watch Netflix on the big screen. In fact, you can get the job done for less than $40. All you need is a streaming stick or an HDMI cable. Honestly, most smart TVs are stupid. In theory, smart TVs should make it easy to watch Netflix (and other services) on a big screen. But it doesn’t always work that way. Manufacturers shove “smart” features into regular TVs as an afterthought, and they don’t keep software up to date through routine updates and patches. But,...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: Reading across the Genres

I'm fully aware that we could still have snow here in central Pennsylvania, and I know my heat will be on for another few weeks, but--dare I say it--I think the weather has finally broken. The forsythia is budded, the bulbs are pushing up greenery, and I've switched to spring coats. With a little bit of luck from the weather gods, I'll be able to start getting the deck reading for summer this week. A woman can dream, can't she? We started a new (for us) show on Netflix over the weekend ...

Netflix movie, The Highwaymen

Watched The Highwaymen on Netflix last night. Not a prepper movie but it was so well done and it's so hard to find a good movie these days I thought I would recommend it. It's the story of Frank Hamer tracking down Bonny and Clyde. I've seen movies about Bonny and Clyde before but this was from the perspective of the two old Texas Rangers. Seems like Netflix is making their own stuff now, I've watched something else of their making and thought it was pretty well done. Hollywood is pretty much ...

Taking My Creativity to the Next Level

I’ve got creativity on the brain again, always looking for more ways to find meaning and connection with the art of making! Last week I wrote about how we can expand our creativity by making a list to narrow down what methods and mediums we want to explore further. For me it was watercoloring. I’m ready to take it to the “next level“. But what does that even mean? Next Level can be defined as… doing more of something or doing something better. And I really want to improve my skills, so I’ve been...

“I ask one thing: Do right by my daddy.”

Back when Marko and I were roommates in Knoxville, we got HBO for the sole purpose of being able to watch Band of Brothers when it came out. Therefore there's precedent for me getting a Netflix subscription, simply because I can't miss the forthcoming Frank Hamer picture.It helps that the screenwriter wrote some of my favorite Westerns, and it seems like he was motivated to do an honest depiction of Hamer:When 86-year-old Frank Jr. arrived, he had an escort comprised of his son Frank III and sev...
