I don't know if many of you went to Church camp as kids, but there's a certain sing song way to call for announcements. Grace might remember it.
We are currently a satellite/cable free family. Last night the remote to our satellite receiver died. The power button on the box has been gone for a long time, so it was suddenly rendered useless. I do not see this as a coincidence since I've been talking about & trying to have the boob tube on less & less lately. I'm not very good at sticking with it, but wanted to.
So I called to see about getting a new receiver (a DVR none the less....doubt that would help curb our viewing habits) but decided we didn't want a new 2 year contract. I had it disconnected & Husband & I spent the next 45 minutes taking apart the entertainment center & cleaning it out & behind it (I don't think that had happened since the night of the mouse).
We currently get one channel on the rabbit ears, but that will be gone with the Schwinn (name that movie) when everything switches to digital. It's FOX so I can keep up with House & an episode of Scrubs every now & again, but it's a bit fuzzy. Our main staple will be the DVD's & videos we already have.
We're looking into high speed Internet, but around here that could mean a minimum of $60 a month for 1 Mbps! Don't think I'll agree to that. We shall see. Verizon, why can't you send DSL out my way?!
Maybe we'll just invest in board games & more books.
