TV watching "101"
I find it amusing when I go to watch tv, I need more practice doing so! I think that it's an art, one remote for the speakers, one for the PVR box, one for the actual TV itself. Then I need my instructions on occassion, if all else fails then I ensure I have both of my phones to call Derek to find out what to do next!
Life was much more simple in the "black and white" days, sure we never had near the channels that we do today yet I remember watching one or two shows a week as a child, Bugs Bunny followed by Hockey Night in Canada and of course Mr Dressup and the Friendly Giant.
These were the days when there was NO remote control, no vcrs or dvds, we got one channel, CBC and it was black and white! I love technology, but I need a course on how to operate all that I continue to purchase! One day I'll figure it all out, that's when newer, faster, bigger things will come out...... one day who knows maybe I'll be sitting here saying "I remember the days when I only had three remotes, two phones, surround sound, a dvd and pvr box AND my tv was ONLY 47" LOL
