Starlink, day 2......

 8:44 am - Friday - September 9th - Likely, CA - 63° F, 13% humidity, wind 5 mph out of the northeast.....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 92° F.  On this date  in 1949 TLE was born.....she is celebrating the 24th anniversary of her 49th birthday.....↴

....that amazing smile still melts my heart!

Once again, we began our day taking the 2 mile round trip walk out to Jess Valley Road, and back.... was a little cooler than Wednesday, and there were no mosquitoes.  We made the round trip walk in 34 minutes averaging 3.6 mph.....about 2/10ths of a mph faster than our prior efforts.....

.....I'm still pinching myself to be sure this is not a dream.....unlimited data...unlimited internet 24/7, and it doesn't involve my cell phone!  Thursday was day 2 of our Starlink adventure, and we are trying to figure out how, or if DirecTV fits into our future, all the while coming ever closer to cutting the proverbial 'cord'.  We signed up for YouTube TV yesterday for free for a month to see how we like it.  They have pretty much all the channels in which we have an interest, and it is just $59/month, plus we have unlimited 'DVR' service.....

.....I don't know much about speed tests, but 133 Mbps seems pretty's actually been closer to 180 Mbps at times.  At any rate, for our purposes, it is lightning fast....way faster than even Verizon, which works pretty well here!

I spent a lot of time catching up on the dozen, or so YouTube channels I follow, and getting used to YouTube TV.  It was just one of those lazy days spent inside out of the heat, which, by the way, is beginning to dissipate as we slide back down to 70's temperatures, which are more typical here in Modoc County this time of year.  

When we went shopping Wednesday TLE bought 3 top sirloin steaks which were on sale at Holiday Market for $6.99 due to their age, so around 5:15 pm I turned on the Sea-B-Que to grill one of them for dinner.  I pulled them off the grill when they hit 125°, and they came out a perfect medium rare.....

....TLE added a baked potato, along with sautéed onions, and mushrooms to complete the dish, and we chased it with a glass of Pino Noir.....a nice way to end a lazy day!

Thanks for stopping by!
