Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
We have a very nice tv. It used to sit in the living room and we had a cable subscription. My wife decided that she couldn't stand looking at it in the living room, so we moved it downstairs to the basement. While the room down there is comfortable enough, it felt sort of distant and disconnected, so we rarely went down to watch television -- an occasional basketball game or movie or something, maybe a couple times a month. It wasn't often enough to justify the cable bill, so we canceled that. The problem is that, being in the basement, it gets no broadcast reception. The tv is hooked up to a DVD player and a VCR, so we can watch movies when we want, but we haven't had any tv reception for two years this month. And I really haven't missed it. We listen to more music, read more and actually converse more. Not bad at all.

ps -- To be completely honest about it, like pdq, we do have a little 12" with wabbit ears for emergency purposes -- like if the Cubs ever get into the world series. Needless to say, it doesn't get much use.
