    Setting it up was a breeze. I’ll help you out if you need it.:)

    Thanks, I appreciate that.

    If I want to stream through Fire Stick I will need to upgrade my high speed internet which is not so high speed. It is really pretty slow.

    If I ever go streaming, I think I will go all the way and cut the cord for good.

    Morning
    I’m on my second cup of coffee.

    I’m really liking this Wal mart+ thingy. :)

    Indianapolis is gearing up for March Madness, signs are everywhere. My apartment is downtown near 2 of the venues (including the site of the final), not sure how many fans they plan to allow in for the games but I have already seen fans around for the Big10 tournament that just finished. I am not much of a basketball fan but I am sure it will be pretty cool to see all the stuff surrounding such a huge tournament.

    Weather turned crummy over the weekend, chance of snow today after 60 degree days last week so that is a bummer, not that I think there were any outside festivals planned to coincide with the tournament.

    Pork chops can be super tasty, how do you prepare them? I am trying to be a better cook and try different stuff all the time.

    I made beef and barley stew this weekend from a recipe I found online--although I had about 50% more beef than the recipe called for and I added potatoes to thicken it up a bit. It's a lot of food though especially when it is just me, so that is lunch today after being 2 days worth of dinner. Saves money I guess.

    I use pepper, salt, and fajita seasoning. I use olive oil and pan sear them.
    I don't bread them.
    I get the wafer-thin, bone-in pork chops

    I don't bread mine either, I prepare mine similarly, normally use olive oil, salt and pepper(and sometimes cayenne pepper for a little bite) but I tend to either bake them or grill them --I might have to try fajita seasoning.

    I'm a fan of the cleaver type pork chops with fried rice. It's an oriental brown rice.

    I like them on the grill but they tend to get a bit dry.

    I thought you would like it. We haven't been to Walmart in it seems like forever.

    Do you pay by credit card before you pick up your order?

    It will depend on how many people are at your house actively using bandwidth at a time, but you might need to pump up your speeds. The good thing is most ISP's will let you bump up speed tiers until you find something that works for your needs. One stream of Netflix might be ok, but if you've got people in other rooms trying to watch different things, you could run into poor playback.

    I like the store that has food.:D

    Yes, I pay online after I'm done shopping. You can always cancel or change your order before you pick it up.

    Edit: They give you time that is the deadline to change/cancel your order.
