    Restaurant Food Delivery Options

    What are your experiences with home food delivery? The only thing I've ever ordered was pizza, but now I'm interested in high quality meals delivered that I don't have to prepare. I want to make a list for myself. So, if you have a list, please share w/contact info. Also, delivery fees and tips? Does the food arrive hot? This is an adventure for me, it's on my 2018 "to do" list. Thanks!

    Internet Television Options

    I'm fed up with the fees and recurring price increases from Cox Communications (seriously, why great deals for new customers while current customers keep getting gouged?). So I'm seriously considering closing it altogether, except for keeping the internet since we need it. I have a friend who has tried and likes Sling Tv (or any other internet television option) and I'm curious if any other edhat readers have tried it and what their thoughts are? Also, what speed or level of internet service would be needed for this?

    Ok, I'm just going to ask what a lot of people are thinking. Now that marijuana is legal (as of Jan 1), where can we buy it in Santa Barbara County? I'm aware that the City of Santa Barbara has been ridiculously strict in allowing the businesses within the city limits, so is there anywhere in the county we can visit?

    Where to Buy a Man's Purse?

    I've been looking for a decent satchel/purse/messenger bag for men and am hitting a brick wall. There are myriad satchels/purses/messenger bags for guys online, but (a) I want to see close-up what I'm getting, and (b) I prefer buying locally. I've been to all the obvious places—Macy's, Nordstrom, H&M, REI, and several smaller retailers—but the supply of what I want is nonexistent. I don't mind spending up to a couple of hundred dollars, but first I've got to FIND something.
