Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?

Heard that this morning also. They are advising those with Direct to change providers or get an antenna and pick KTLA off the air

I knew about it and even called Directv the other day. They really don't care what their customers think.

I was bummed when I turn on the TV this morning and my news wasn't on. I'm pissed off and thinking about going to another provider.

usualy they settle these at the last minute We don't get KTLA down here in our local pack but I wish we could. I'm still happier with direct then others I see.
Is Ch 5 available on the internet?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.


Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

I miss my KTLA. But it's all business which means its all about money. We can't get cable and I know TOO many folks unhappy with Dish so I guess we're stuck ....or do what we do more often these days and pull it off the net! :-)

Always address packages that way. FedEx, UPS, and DHL have some trucks that deliver to the Post Office. Both addresses must be on the package, since you may not know which truck your package is on., until it is too late

I use Van's addressing method, but insert the word Box after St.

Amazon Prime will deliver to an "invalid" street address. You just have to confirm it repeatedly, until it eventually takes it. My delivery address is "invalid" in most systems. I get several shipments per month from Amazon Prime.

When I order Amazon I put my street address and then the PO Box number after it on the same line. Sometimes UPS and FedEx use the USPS as final delivery and of course they don't deliver here. If you put the PO Box in as a separate line it may not accept it because it can't deliver to PO Box. So your address would be 100 Main St 131519 Big Bear Lake CA 92315 and 131519 would be your PO Box. That is the only way I've found to cover all of your bases. I know its 2016 and we have a Mayberry Post Office, ridiculous but you have to learn to work with what you have.

OilHauler-- For Prime 1 day and 2-day deliveires, you must provide a physicalbaddressbso that UPS, FedEx, and Ontrac can deliver (they wont deliver to P.O. boxes). If you cant provide a physical street address, you can have packages dropped off at the UPS Store in the Village in Big Bear Lake. But call the store ahead of time to make arrangements.

Sorry BG, you had a bunch of spaces...
Per BG: I got a package yesterday. delivered to the wrong door but came fine. They say when you order that they can't deliver to a box number. another example of ordering from ebay and it coming from amazon. I don't remember my amazon info. It's strange how sometimes the price is cheaper on ebay and so that is the price when it comes from amazon. The profit margin has got to be tight on some of these items. I guess making a buck even on an expensive item is better then nothing

Also, just a heads up... we're now getting some drift smoke in a northerly flow from the Erskine fire in Kern County.

I think I own stock in them by now. But some addresses it won't validate, even though they are valid.
