Random Thought

This is just a random thought I had recently.  It's been over a year now since we have had no TV.  At first it was a devastation because we could always get at least some local stations from our little antenna and then our large antenna we put on our house.  But at our new house get got nothing.  I think we have a black hole for TV here so we decided not to pursue it after a couple attempts.  I have not really missed it and the kids have stopped complaining about it have have found other things to do with their spare time.  I haven't missed...
1.  Commercials, especially at Christmas time.  It seems like the kids would change their Christmas wish lists after every Saturday because they saw a new toy they just had to have.
2.  I don't miss having to watch a show at a certain time of the day
One draw back is when the kids go to Grandma's house they are so excited to watch TV. But I'm not sure if that really changed from before.
Well I got to go because I really want to watch a movie on Hulu.  Hey isn't that really TV?  I guess we really haven't been without TV have we.  Hummmmmm??


  1. The only TV I watch is the morning news to keep current on what's going on in the community and world. But, it's amazing the commercial jingles and catch phrases that stick in my children's minds! I'm thinking about getting my information from another source. Besides, news is becoming more about celebrity gossip than historical events. It's very disappointing. We do watch a little Hulu and videos. I also like streaming

  2. Jennifer said via Facebook: isn't it great? We turned off the cable 8 years ago, haven't regretted it since. We do have netflix but that is it. I love it!
