Getting cable

We haven't had TV for about 5 years.  Really, I can't say I've missed it at all.

Well, last month, we decided to get the introduction cable package.  I wasn't sure I was going to like it.  I like that my kids don't know the latest shows and are unexposed to commercials.

We got cable.  It has 21 channels.  Half of them are in Spanish.  We only watch the TV for one hour each day.  From 4:00-5:00 we watch America's Funniest Home video re-runs.  Those are a hoot!  It's good to belly laugh every day. 

We also get about 30 music channels.  Most of them I don't care for, but I love Soundscapes.  It's just peaceful instrumental music.  However, the station right next to Soundscapes is called "Sounds of the Seasons".  It's playing Christmas music non-stop!!!!!  I'm so happy!!!!

The selection of music on the TV station is so much better than the Christmas music that you hear on the radio.  Radio stations have a small selection of Christmas music that they play over and over and over.  Some of them are nice, but really, by the end of the month, I'm sick of the radio's music selection.  Not with the TV station.  I'm so very happy with our cable right now.

Let the Christmas season begin!

I've not really missed it either. You don't know what you missing if you don't have it to get involved in. I always feel bad for the friends who hate summer because their favorite shows are on rerun and then rejoice in the fall TV line up.

We've had Nexflix for many years and it's always been fun. I've seen just about every Doris Day movie and the kids are watching the "old" TV show Star Trek Generations. I use to watch that when it first ran on TV. I thought Wesley was cute. Does that date me or what?
