Well I took a very big step this past week. Last Thursday I had the tv disconnected by the cable company. When I realized I was still getting some fuzzy feed including AMC I sold my big TV on Saturday during my neighbor's garage sale. I put a plant in its place:
I threw away the antenna on my small tv (see drawing above) so I can't watch any programming coming over the airwaves. I also had a small B&W tv in the garage that I gave to a friend on Sunday. I kept the small tv so I can watch dvds. So far this has been fine. I realize I can still see most any show on line if I really, really want to see something or I can wait for the dvd to be released next year. My hope is that I will get more accomplished and not fill my brain with all the odd programming that is out there. I could not watch the news anymore due to the drug ads and the negativity. So we will see how it goes.
