We started with interior painting this morning - that will likely take the rest of the week.  Yesterday was Sunday, and the whole AAAD family was in the city.  We did some minor clean-up in advance of the painters arriving, and spent the afternoon trying to...

WOW Internet Service vs. Comcast Xfinity (2017)
We've had WOW internet service for over 5 years. (Long-time readers will probably remember us trying, and failing, to move to Comcast, and the follies that ensued.) 5 years late.... it's time for a follow-up post.... how is WOW internet service working thes...
