I do not know about you, but the novelty of the new year is all worn out on me.
It is going to have to prove itself to me before I believe it is any better than the year before. So enough of that!!!!
Now onto more pressing matters.
Skipper The Cat is back to scratching and licking himself raw again. He is allergic to something. Who knows what.
I bought him a cone collar. But he hates it. I put it on him and while it does prevent scratching an licking - it also brings on severe depression. Ever see a depressed cat? It is a sad sight. He just mopes around. Laying in one spot. Which is unusual behavior for him.
But if I leave it off he licks and scratches himself all night long.
This will certainly result in a vet bill.
BUT IN OTHER NEWS........
I am really liking my Roku Netflix Player. It is this small black box that you connect to a TV. You can use HDMI, composite video (yellow RCA plug), S Video, or composite video. Pick one. There is also an optical connection for audio.
It connects to your high speed internet router either wirelessly or through Ethernet. I went with the wireless connecton.
Setup could not be easier. You just plug it into the TV, connect it to power, and you are done. It finds your wireless network, asks you for the SSID password if you have one, then it connects to Netflix and obtains a confirmation code. You then log into your Netflix accound on your computer, and enter that confirmation code.
The device then shows you all the movies on your queue that you can watch instantly. Just like that.
There is one flaw in the device however. You can't turn the thing off unless you unplug it.
Anyhow it is pretty cool. It works very well.
