Dear Sun Spots: I am looking for someone who can come to my house and help with the setting up of my TV, VCR, DVD. I have just had a satellite Dish installed. I went from having two TVs and VCRs set up, able to record two programs and watch a third. Now, because of the digital changes, I not only can’t do any of these things, I have also become incredibly stupid. I can’t make heads or tails of the “manual” and am not sure if things are connected correctly. Is there a “geek” out there that does house calls? I am sure there are lots of other people who need these services also. As far as I can see the only reason the digital switch has been forced on us is to make sure “everyone” pays for TV. Call 933-4228. – No Name, Monmouth.

Dear Sun Spots: Awhile back someone was looking for Betty Crocker coupons. I think it was a school in the Bethel area. If they are interested I have quite a few thousand.

I’m looking for a kitchen flatware set by Pfaltzgraff, it has roses on the handle. If anyone has a set or spoons and small forks I would pay a fair price. Thank you. Call Gail at 627-4439. – Gail, Otisfield.
