I had further proof the other day that LivingWithBeth’s readers are awesome. Someone commented on my post about cutting your cable or satellite TV bill, saying that she doesn’t understand all of the terms involved in TV streaming (Roku, Hulu, etc.). She wondered if there’s an article out that explains it all.
Your wish is my command. Here’s your ultimate guide to TV streaming terminology – everything you need to know about all of those TV streaming terms you keep hearing.… Continue reading →
I’ve long preferred nonfiction TV as opposed to standard scripted or “reality” programming. Since cutting the cord on satellite TV, I’ve combed Netflix and Amazon Prime Video for the most fascinating and entertaining documentaries and came up with this list.
I’ve tried to concentrate mostly on movie-length documentaries of more than an hour, with some exceptions. There are scads of great biographies of famous people available on Amazon Prime Video which generally run 45 to 50 minutes or less.… Continue reading →
We tossed around the idea of getting rid of our pay TV service for years before finally cutting the cord last summer. I thought it would take way more time than it did. I also thought I’d miss it much more than I actually did.
Seriously, my family doesn’t miss our satellite TV at all. However, I’m not suggesting that everyone needs to cut the cord in order to pay less for TV service.… Continue reading →
Back when I was younger, I had time to enjoy movies on a somewhat regular basis. Nowadays, I’m rarely able to watch movies, except for the occasional kids’ film. There are some movies I couldn’t wait to share with my kids, and some non-family films that I could still watch anytime if I had some free moments.
I’ve cheated a bit on this top 10 list by bunching together related movies.… Continue reading →
There seems to be an unwritten rule for computer geeks, that we must love Star Wars or Star Trek, or both. I’m not a huge trekkie, though I’m fascinated by the Trek phenomenon.
I am, however, a huge fan of the original three Star Wars movies. Naturally, I looked forward to sharing these movies with my kids.
My older daughter, despite showing many signs of being a computer geek in the making, had no interest in viewing the Star Wars movies.… Continue reading →
I recently saw a post on a very popular blog that urged readers not to cancel their pay TV service and cut the cord. Huh? We finally canceled our satellite service a few months ago after years of stalling.
I could count on zero hands the number of times I’ve missed our satellite service. I’m kicking myself for the amount of time we wasted $100+ monthly on satellite service.… Continue reading →

Online Bingo has always been stereotyped as a game that is popular with an older age group of women. But this is not true. If you look at the recent statistics, you will see that the game is catching up fast with young adults, too. This is because online bingo is a highly sociable game where they get to meet new people.… Continue reading →
Gene Wilder’s passing came as a shock to many of his fans. We can’t imagine him as an old man.
Over and over again, we watch his classic movies in which he’s young and vibrant, or, at least, middle-aged and vibrant. You can stream almost all of his most famous movies, with the exception of “Young Frankenstein.” Everything else is available on Amazon Video and sometimes on Google Play or other pay-per-view options.… Continue reading →
We visited my parents in Western Pennsylvania last month and had a blast at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park in Tipton, PA, which is a few miles from Altoona.
DelGrosso’s offers a water park and a ride park, and we visited only the ride park. Admission to the ride park is free if you want to buy tickets for rides.
