The Office Is A Free On Demand Show That I Never Miss

Thanks for the article from Laura Ryan.

I often select the television show The Office when I am searching for something to watch from Free On Demand. This is a great show and it reminds of the days when I worked in a similar setting. I had a much better boss, although, not as much fun.

Steve Carell is Michael Scott manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, PA. He is great at this role and I heard he was leaving after this year, which is a shame. This season he and Holly rekindled their romance and on the last episode they made the other workers uncomfortable with their displays of public affection for one another.

Actor John Krasinski is character Jim Halpert and he spends a lot of time and effort to annoy Dwight. I'll never forget in one of the first episodes of the show Jim put all of Dwight's office supplies in Jell-O. I can't imagine the time it would take to do that, but it was hilarious. In another episode Jim convinced the vending machine worker to put all of Dwight's office supplies in the machine. Then Pam purchased something and wouldn't give it to Dwight, because she bought it. Dwight then started hurrying to buy back all of his stuff.

I watch this show on my Direct.TV and have enjoyed the Free On Demand option enormously.

Long For Curb Appeal Of My Own

Guest written by our friend Jan Chandler

The television show on satellite TV's HGTV channel Curb Appeal is one of my favorite of all those real estate shows that are featured. I'm a hands-on type of person and I love getting new and better ideas on how to make my home and front yard look better. I love the entire premise of the show from sending the family away to their exciting and triumphant return home to see their glorious new home, completely re-done. It's amazing the transformations that they make to an ordinary home and yard. They have the equipment needed to rip out that shrubbery an put in just the right plants needed to emphasize the house.

I also love the changes they make to the house to give it the title claim of Curb Appeal. They can easily switch out the color, pressure wash the bricks or add a retaining wall all in a short 30 minute span. The best part of the show is the end when they reveal the complete look and then show you how much better it looks compared to the old front yard. I would love to have their crew come and do a number on my yard one day so that I too could have that wonderful curb appeal that all their homes do. I love satellite tv from
