More than Silver, More than Gold

We all know the color of gold, the look and the feel, seeing gold rings and chains immediately says value and beauty. Silver has it's place as well...the classic look of silver jewelry or antiques, the light-patina of aging. There's a reason why these are referred to as precious metals...but there is one metal that is overlooked with amazing properties and beauty all it's own. We're talking about platinum, the rarest and heaviest of all precious metals, and a metal that you really should get to know better.

Cutting the Cord on Cable TV

Stop by either TBGoods location, and you'll see that, on top of our already amazing prices, we are running a sale on all televisions! Great time to upgrade, huh? But what to watch...

First of all, a bit of a caveat: this topic is personal for me right now. I just got my cable bill.

Yeah, it was that scary. Another increase in my cable bill for 100+ channels that I hardly watch...so I figure it would be a good time to take a look a little deeper into why this is, and what alternatives are out there. It's a big scary wild world with a slew of choices...some of them good, some of them not-so-good....are you ready?
