Ok, who else is loving "Will Trent"?

I've read most of the books which are great. I didn't picture him like the actor, but the show is really good.

Good news for crime drama lovers

I hear there's a new season of Vera coming. Yea!
Also new episodes of Murdoch Mysteries in February. And, according to the Graham Norton show, James Norton is returning in Happy Valley.

We are moving mom to a care facility

On Thursday. Been bedridden since June after getting covid. We've had full time care giving in the home at $12,000/ month.
She wants to get out of bed, and who can blame her. But caregiver and I can't manage it. A family friend owns a facility and a room came up. At only $6000/month, we grabbed it. Told caregiver yesterday which broke my heart; she's almost family at this point.
Mom doesn't know yet, and that's another challenge.
Thank goodness I recorded It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World yesterday on our local pbs station. It's giving me some comic relief between all the crying.

Need help with smart tv that can no longer access internet

The family has decided 99 yr old mom needs more care than I and fulltime caregiver can give her at home. She has been bedridden since she got covid 6 months ago. So we are moving her to a facility owned by a family friend. I want to move the tv I have now to her room. Problem is it's a Samsung that lost its ability to connect to internet. (AT&T did a diagnostic test and its the tv, not the connection.)
I called AT &T about getting service at new location. I don't want Direct TV, so they said the tv can be used with a Roku or something similar and must accept apps. I understand Roku can work without internet. But, can the "unsmart" tv accept apps? I don't think so. When I try the Smart Hub thing it won't do anything.
Any suggestions?
I suppose I could go ahead with Direct tv, I just don't like the dish thing.
Thanks for any advice.

Okay. You have GOT to see Annika

What a season finale! It's on my local pbs station, and Vudu. Can't wait for season 2.

Just saw another good Brit crime drama

Innocent, on Acorn tv. With Lee Ingleby, who I love from George Gently series.

I just binge watched

A really good British crime drama series: Bancroft. Two seasons. Found it on Britbox.

Question about home equity line of credit

I'm hoping someone has an answer to this:
So mom is almost 99, living at home with me, and full time caregiver at $400/day, $600 on holidays. For 5 months, we have been able to handle the fees from both of our accounts. Now we need to look for funds, and since she owns her home we thought home equity line of credit through our credit union a good idea. After waiting over 2 and a half months for an answer, they tell me "the title company does not wish to proceed." Huh? They have no more information.
We have no debt, adequate income from pensions and social security, house is paid for, good credit scores. Am I missing something here? The only thing I can think of is, since its for mom's care, and we won't need it when she's gone, do they think it isn't worth it to them because they won't get much back in interest?
I hope someone can enlighten me. I'm quarantined right now, but I WILL be cashing out from them when I can. Just unprofessional in my opinion.

Hey! I'm at the Chicks concert at the Greek in LA!!!

My first time, so really looking forward to it.
