We're house and dog sitting this weekend for one of the neighbors in the village. They have a TV with one of those satellite expressvu things with a gazillion channels. Started off watching America's Got Talent, and then switched over to Celebrity Apprentice. But I'll tell you, it seems like half the shows are advertising. Not only the ads themselves, but the advertising is actually part of the show! Can't stand it.
For myself, I do miss watching baseball and Nascar racing on TV. I don't miss anything else.
But when we have a good internet connection, we download movies and some TV shows that have the commercials edited out. Then watch them on the laptop. I can't see us ever owning a television again.
Went for a bike ride and a hike yesterday. We borrowed Ruth's brothers bikes (he lives next door) and rode them 7 kms (4.5 miles) each way down to the Morris Island Conservation Area. Then we locked them up and went for a 4.5 km (3 mile) hike.
Heading into the town of Arnprior (population 8,000) to play with the new camera today. Then, to visit my mother for dinner.
Don't forget to vote. Even though we are firmly in first place in our category, we don't want you to have done all that work only to have someone come from behind near the finish line!
