So we finally got the bulk of the back yard planted.

Michelle Bourassa now has her windmill palms and Elephant Ear plants. The Hostas are looking very nice as well. Sorry that the pix are a bit grainy-looking. The screen plays havoc with the camera focusing / resolution but from inside the lanai is the best perspective of the back yard.

Funny that our power was rock solid through these past two ice storms, but now after a rainstorm we have been without power since about five this morning.
Georgia power seems to be alternately aware and unaware of our issue. There is an outage on the map near our location, but when I check the status for my house they keep thinking that I’m okay. So I’ve reported us as being down twice so far. Hopefully this time it sticks.

Yes indeed it has been an eventful few weeks :-)

Snowpocalypse ’14! We walked around the neighborhood this morning and took some pictures. They don’t call it “Indian HILLS” for nothing. Last night we came upon a blockade similar to this just before we got home. But we backtracked and took a much lesser known route through the neighborhood to get home safely. Note the sheen from the ice, I estimate it’s over 3/4 inch thick in most places.

Just back from the vet with Maverick. Turns out he suffering from… Old age :-) well maybe there’s a heart murmur in there as well but he’s doing pretty darn well for a 16-year-old cat

At the Apple store getting Michelle Bourassa’s phone fixed. $300 later we’ll be ready to go for lunch. :(

HULU Ad complaint 20140117

I sent this to HULU this morning:

I like Hulu’s offerings. But the ads have become an overwhelming issue for me.

It’s bad enough that I cannot get rid of them entirely even though I am willing to pay a premium to do so.
But can you PLEASE do something about the repetitiveness of the ads? Last night there were 6 ad slots in the show I was watching and you aired the same series of ads in every slot.
I can be persuaded to watch an entertaining or novel ad but once I’ve seen an ad I usually never need to see it again. Having the same ad foisted on me every 8-10 minutes is not only annoying it’s downright insulting. I am astonished that anybody deems this effective.
There are plenty of viewing alternatives out there and, while HULU does a very good job at managing and delivering content, for me it is worth pursuing the other more cumbersome options to avoid this ongoing vexing issue.
I do ask that you rethink your model – there must be an ad free alternative – even at a premium. It is literally a weight off of my shoulders when I watch programming on Netflix and don’t have those constant interruptions.
Thanks for your consideration,

Marc
