Plan B, Again

I got an email from Jerry Otto this morning:

Hello TruckeeDave,

"As you know the fishing was non-existent. Water flows and temperatures were
off and the fish were lethargic to say the least. I fished for a total of
about 2 hours in 11 days. I caught nothing. This was the first time in about
3 years I was skunked in Markleeville.

I have several contacts in the area that will call when the fishing
conditions improve. I will keep you and SturgeUrge in the loop and I hope to meet
you up there soon."

Tech War
So I played along with Samsung Support today...I downloaded the firmware update, and installed it. meanwhile I discovered that my AV Receiver had Optical Inputs, and got the cable from my local hardware store and...voila! The Blu-ray Player lights up my subwoofer!

I don't know if it was the Firmware Update or the new Optical Cable...but It's good to go now! I watched three movies on Blu-ray tonight..."North By Northwest" "Gladiator" and "Master and Commander" ...great shit Maynerd!

I haven't let Samsung off the hook...they're still on my shit list...I am after all "settling" when everything possible on the player isn't up to snuff...but there's enough to keep me happy...


  1. It's an interesting day in the neighborhood...being almost fiddy ten has caused a rearview mirror retropspective (yes, I believe that is one would call an oxymoron).

    I'm thinking of Hibernian Crude and some delectable chocolate ice cream.

    yeah, isn't that what it's all about?

  2. I brought the old ice cream churn down to the Inland Valley this time!

    Forgot the ice cream cookbook. D'oh!
