Cutting the Cord

Once again, in this post, the Techy Geek in me is working well with the Back to Simplicity Homesteader.  We are not the first ones to cut the proverbial cord and I am sure we will not be the last.  We first started considering getting rid of cable or satellite television services just over 3...
