Is a television in your home, or do you not have time for it?

    Hyphen, I am the same way, and I am glad that there are others like me out there. I don't have one, as I just can't find the time(nor do I really want to!). BUT I sometimes have to force myself to pt the radio on.

    I moved in here 2 years ago, and spend a good bit of my time taking photos of birds at the lake across the street. If I didn't have a radio, I might not find out about anything!

    But you basically multi-task while the television is in operation, you don't give it your full attention?

    That seems to be my own way of life, as well. Seems like I can get so much more done without it, and if I really want to do so, I can see the headlines on line.

    I used to do that when I was in Maine and couldn't afford to keep cable TV.

    Do you think that people can get wrapped up in the tv or computer just because they happen to be within easy reach?

    Downtime does seem to be important in a busy time such as yours. Thanks for answering!

    Glad to see that you checked out the old shows. How do you rate the older stuff vs. the more recent shows?

    You are so right about the modern programming. t tends to be a bore. It really would be nicer if we had better shows. When I had a TV, I liked the DIY, food, and gardening channels.

    I understand that. Many people say that the kids don't spend any time exercising any more due to the hand held devices, console games, computer, Ipad, etc. That's another great reason to get out of the house to do family things when at all possible

    You are one busy lady. I loved Animal Planet when I watched TV, and learned a great deal from it. Now, people tell me that I host my own with "Life at Boomer Lake with Deb" ever week.

    It's so much easier for me to become wrapped up in reading than watching the television.

    It's great for the kids to be up on current affairs, as much of that can affect them.

    When I had access to TV, I also enjoyed the animal Planet. I spend a lot of time with my photos now, but would like to read more.

    If you had more channels, would you watch it more, do you think?

    What kinds of movies do you tend to watch? What do you think about older material?

    Well, you know me, I liked my bird and animal shows, and was introduced to some wonderful creatures that I would never had the hope of seeing, so I valued TV for that.

    I agree with you there, as I have quite a bit of that. Between that, photo cropping, and writing, I barely have time for down time.

    Pretty unusual, yet amusing and worrisome all at the same time. Did you do a story on this? If not, please. I'm sure that it would attract a lot of attention.
