Cutting the Cord

So for me, cutting the cord from the Cable Companies was never a hard thing.  I am tech saavy and have been leveraging the world of alternative sources for my own entertainment needs for years but about 3 months ago I grabbed a little Android Box and it was plugged in and working…but really only…

OS Sunday – By the Clear and Running Fountain…
