Signal-less Summer


It's been waaay too long since my last post--lots of family stuff going on. I do have fiber-related stuff to post, but in the meantime I thought I'd share one of my highlights of this summer so far--life without the TV.

When the digital transition came about, I realized that my 14-year-old tv didn't merit the $40 converter box. A new tv isn't in the budget right now and it's summer--I shouldn't be wasting time inside!

The transition has been great--aside from the initial "It's 10 o'clock I should put the news on" reflex, I haven't missed it at all. Especially during the Michael Jackson non-stop coverage.

After about a week, I got tired of looking at the defunct box gathering dust. So I removed the rabbit ears and covered it with an Indonesian batik that has been languishing in the closet. Much better!

Sorry...we've been on vacation. Can you come over tomorrow to get the box? We have a playoff game and Rob's dad is in...
