Coupon Applications Facilitated Here

Here, to be precise.

Applying for a government coupon to buy a TV converter box is something I've been meaning to do. I don't, under normal circumstances, need one. I have cable. But I'd been thinking about getting the coupon (and the box it purchases) anyway, because what if financial times get Really Bad? The first thing I'd give up would be the cable, even before the cell phone.

Then came Fay.

My cable hasn't gone out (and in fact my total trouble thus far has been lots o' rain and lots o' wind, although the news is reporting a tornado very near me...), but it could have. And Fay will hardly be the last storm to ever come visit. And sometimes the cable goes out just because.

So I moved "ordering coupon" up from the someday list to the right-now list, and it took all of about 25 seconds. Maybe 35.

You can order your coupon in less time than it took to read this post, so once again: click here to order your coupon.

You know; you're right. Ireally hadn't thought of that angle, but I'll take your advice. Thanks, V.

My cable provider is Comcast, and it runs all these soothing ads to let everyone know that we as Comcast customers are covered -- implying that we don't need no stinkin' box. True as long as we have cable!

I'd rather get the box now for free (saw it for less than $50 at Walmart) when I don't need it than have to pay for it in an emergency, financial or otherwise.
