About my Avatar/Username:
I coined the name IowaCowboy after moving to Massachusetts (and not by choice) as Iowa is the west and cowboys are associated from the west.

It's the Alaskan Malamute that belonged to my cousin and then my grandmother and now I'm taking care of him.

My mobile phone:
Verizon iPhone 5 32GB

I like to listen to:
Green Day, Bruce Springsteen, One Direction, Weird Al Yankovic, any upbeat 80's or 90's Rock/Pop songs, '90s/early 2000's country.

My home connection
Verizon Home Phone with DirecTV Genie with one Client and a TiVo. Internet is through Comcast and is at the Blast 50/10 tier connected to a 4th generation Apple AirPort Extreme router along with Digital Economy connected to a TiVo Premiere.

Speed down/up:
