Re: Prayers for my friend

Re: Dish Network

Some local areas with DISH are not renewing their contracts to carry ShopLC. Or the other way around. At least that is the way it was explained to me. Try contacting DISH directly. Good luck!

Re: Overkill

Very informative post William. I know next to nothing about gems or mines but learned more in the short amount of time it took to read your post than I could have imagined possible.
