No, this has nothing to do with the increase in crime in Chiriquí, though that is not getting better. With all the thousands of Africans and Cubans in the news at the Frontera, You might get killed trying to leave Panama, but this isn’t about that either.
It is about a British TV series that I have just completed watching on Kodi. It is so easy to get addicted to a series and just sit and watch one after another.
That has happened to me over and over again. Breaking Bad, Scandal, House of Cards, The Good Wife, Downton Abbey, The Black List …
I am now finding myself in unknown territory. My subscription to UNLOCATOR just expired and therefore my Amazon devices are no longer able to access any of the Amazon Prime content.
I also can’t access Pandora. My music is now coming solely from KODI’s music section. Not as good as Pandora or Amazon Music or Apple Music, but free. I also access a lot of music from YouTube and VEVO.
I plan on trying to get by without UNLOCATOR at least until I return from the states. I have liked having Amazon Prime and Pandora so there is a possibility I may re-up. If I find I can live without it, I will cancel Amazon Prime.
While I watch a lot of movies on Kodi, I watch a lot more TV series.
It is easy to sit down and think “I only have 30 minutes or 45 minutes” and find something to fill the time. I have found a lot of new series by scanning the “what others are watching” section.
The Death in Paradise series is a British series. It was light and fun and I was sorry when I got to the end.
The other night I watched the CNN Democratic debate. It kind of made me think of the Death of Paradise. When you grew up in the best of time in the US, it is hard to watch the changes that have transpired since then.
When I reduced my Cable Onda to the minimal service, I lost CNN. I am now watching it on Kodi. My current contract covers phone, internet and TV. I was considering dropping the phone, but it is only $6/month, so it is barely worth the effort. The $27/month for 10 Mbps allowed me to drop all but my basic cable service, which is running about $35 for 4 sets.
On my return from the US, I am bringing back two Amazon Fire Sticks and One Amazon Fire TV. Only one is for me. I going to put a FS on my terrace so I can watch movies outside ald listen to the rain at the same time.
Speaking of rain, wasn’t that a good one. Of course the rainy season just means it is time to see if the roof has developed any new leaks. Lilliam noticed a spot in the bedroom this morning.
May need to get that fixed this week before we leave. Time to call Rene, my fix it person.
All for now. It is pancake day and Lilliam is calling me to breakfast.
