Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
Although we do have a TV, we don't have cable and the outside antenna got seriously bent by an ice storm a couple of years ago. With 5 local stations I can more-or-less pick up with the antenna, more than 60% of the "programming" is "paid commercial announcements" with another 20% raving preachers extorting "love gifts" and dispensing hate.

It gets little real use. Although we do occasionally flop in a DVD or VCR, our "library" doesn't include much of anything less than 15 or 20 years old.

We usually leave it on when we're out, to make the house appear more occupied... .
