Just watched an interesting YouTube video on Trump's debt problem. Turns out if he had just sold everything and put it in a blind trust invested in the SP500, he would be hundreds of millions of dollars richer today than keeping all those assets. A lot of his "investments" have never turned a profit. His properties and golf courses in Scotland have never paid a penny of property tax. All his banks have just closed his accounts, even if he didn't owe them anything. They want nothing to do with him.

PBS Newshour reported all of that last night as well. Hmm

I watch a lot of PBS and MSNBC on YouTube since I don't have broadcast TV hooked up or cable TV service.

I don't have broadcast or cable any longer. i watch PBS Newshour thru Apple TV.

Looking to buy a house soon, considering broadcast w/ antenna because I do miss TiVo.

Do you have good line of sight to the major broadcast station's towers in Seattle? That's important for digital TV. My problem is I live behind mountains to both LA and San Diego towers, and quite a distance from each.

That station antennas are actually on Mt. Rainer, the highest point in the area.

For now anyway!

The 3 word Bible always has an appropriate reference for any situation, but as Chapter and Verse are not yet agreed upon I will quote it in context

ouch

A goodly amount of snow here (8"), very pretty! Supposed to get more today, followed by 9 degrees tonight - very chilly!

Went to the cabin Saturday for a sit by the woodstove, a Reuben on the panini grill for lunch, a nap with a good book (Doc Savage #13, Land of Always-Night), and a watch of the snow storm's first hours. Headed for home about 2:00 via the over-the-mountain route driving the wife's 2-wheel drive Toyota pickup, and got about halfway up to the 8,000' pass before spinning out hopelessly. Backed up about a 1/4 mile on the winding narrow road (oh, my god, I can hardly see!!) to a turnaround place and headed back down ever so carefully. Had to take the (mostly snow free) long way home - about 20 miles longer. I took the opportunity to regale my mate with endless stories of my youth, driving a 1947 Jeep into the gaping maw of death every weekend, just for the pure joy and challenge!

Not no more...

Um, no. There are no TV transmissions towers on Mt. Rainier - snowcapped 14,000+ ft volcano almost entirely a national park. The transmission towers for Seattle are on Queen Anne and Capitol Hills.
