A couple of weeks ago, I posted about my 91 year old grandfather's medical woes and asked the blogging community for thoughts and prayers for him.
The good news is--next weekend, he'll be coming closer to all of us here in Nashville. He's coming to live in an assisted living center that is about 10 minutes or less from the immediate family here in Smyrna. So we're all excited about it because it means we can see him more often and I intend to go over and sleep through some football and baseball games with him. I think we'll both enjoy it--esp. as about the only good thing a Titans' game is good for this year is napping through.
Anyway, the retirement community he's moving into doesn't have cable but has a Dish. So, my mom asked me to research the Dish Network and see what he needs in order to get going. Now, looking at the web site and doing some homework, it seems as if since the retirement community has the Dish and a service plan, that all he'd need is the decoder box to go on his TV. But, I'm not sure. I've never had the Dish so I know next to nothing about it--other than it looks pretty cool. So, I figured I'd throw open the question to my fellow bloggers because you might have the Dish or know someone who does. If you could drop me a line either in the comments or an e-mail and let me know what we need to get him up and running, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
