Merry Christmas

From the McReynolds

Saturday, December 20, 2008


We made it back from our honeymoon in the Riviera Maya, Mexico late Thursday night. We had a wonderful time and were not ready to leave the beach where it was sunny, in the low 80s, and with a nice breeze. I know you are curious, so I'll give you a quick summary of what we did (besides that) and then post a few pictures.

To sum it up we: lounged on the beach, visited Mayan Ruins, kayaked in the ocean, played putt putt and ping pong, sat by the pool, slept in hammocks, ate whenever we pleased, and took long walks on the beach

Last minute details

The wedding is getting very close now and time seems to speed up the closer we get to the big day. Decorating is just about all that is left before the rehearsal on Friday evening. I will remind all of our out of town guests that there is a local map on the right side of the page under "Wedding Links" to help you get around the area. We look forward to seeing everyone and apologize in advance for not being able to spend as much time visiting as we would like.

Digital TV transition (update)

update: added antenna review below
You may be completely unaware, completely confused, or somewhere in between of the upcoming digital TV transition. There are lots of good resources out there so I will just hit some of the high points.

1. You are only affected if you currently receive your tv with an antenna.
2. If you use an antenna and haven't purchased a new tv in the last couple of years you will need a converter box.
3. Uncle Sam will give you $40 to spend on a converter box
4. You have to request a coupon(s) by the end of the month.

Quick antenna review:
I just bought a new indoor antenna. The Terk HDTVa was my choice. I had been using a Phillips antenna. The Terk is better for several reasons. First, it allows me to pick up the same stations I did before, but now I don't have to adjust the antenna depending on which station I want to watch. Second, the main analog station (which will cease to exist after Feb. 17) that I watch comes in clearer. Third, I now can more reliably pick up the 4 PBS stations that only worked on occasion. The Phillips will now be moved to the bedroom so that Stefanie can watch the news or weather (when it storms) and should work just fine for that. (NBC has a very strong signal and should work well throughout the house) One other note. Both of these antennas are amplified (they must be plugged in) and I believe that this has made a big difference for me since the towers are up to 45 miles away. You can see what stations you should pick up by putting your address in at Best Buy carries the Terk antenna, but it is much cheaper on
