DishNetwork Gets the Boot

After numerous years with DishNetwork, they got the boot today. DirecTV was installed and The Mtn network is online! I won't miss a single BYU football game this year!

When I spoke to DishNetwork, the operator already knew the story and knew that there wasn't an offer she could make to keep me without adding the channel. She explained to me that they didn't want to pass on the cost of this channel to customers and I explained that they should have done their homework because BYU fans outside of Utah would pay top dollar to watch BYU football.

OUR Company Picnic

Well it was a great picnic that our company, CSI, put on for everyone. Since we are we volunteered to help with anything that was going on. They asked us to come early at about 10:30. The event started at 12:30 and well then never knew the really good reason to have so many kids in one family. Everyone did nothing for about an hour to an hour 1/2. Us Gwilliam kids are awesome what can i say. we can get things done. The best part was the obstacle course that they had for the kids. The people that planned the shindig had so many different games that the kids could play and well none of them were really played. There was always a long line to get the blow up obstacle course.

Lori and the kids headed to Idaho after the Gwilliam family reunion to visit the Norman gang. As you can see from the photos below, they spent plenty of time playing with grandpa and the four-wheelers.
