I am sitting on the phone waiting to cancel my Sirius XM satellite service to our two cars. The prices seem to have doubled from last year with no explanation. You can do everything you want online except cancel service and I have been shuttled back and forth in my efforts to do that on the phone. I have turned from a customer into a victim once again by corporate America. I like the radio service with no commercials. Now I will just download podcasts to play in the car via blue tooth.
It is like Comcast. It seems every time I get a bill from them it goes up. It is time for the city of Albuquerque to allow a new franchisee into the mix. My son has a choice of providers in upstate New York and his fees are much lower. And he has fiber optics right up to the home. If I have any regrets from my term as Mayor in Albuquerque it is that I did not try harder to have the city council, a very reluctant group who got freebies from Comcast, to do it.
That wind yesterday in Albuquerque was tremendous. It blew a nice tiled name plate that sat over our porch for seventeen years right off its hooks. The only tile that survived was the B for Baca. Strangely, the piles of leaves in the front yard disappeared and it now looks to be manicured. Those leaves and many more ended up in the back yard and the currents caused a three foot high pile on our porch blocking access to the hot tub. I had to cut a pathway in order to take my early morning soak.
