    A Slight Lie;

     I do have a t.v, but only for watching DVDs on, I got so fed up with the tales of misery, with no hope.  Humans know too much now, what's the saying ? ignorance is bliss, we used to be more like animals, living for today, only worried about getting food, shelter.  I know as...

    I Wonder How People Survived Before the Invention of Television

    Considering the vast amounts of television-watching that people do (both here in the US and elsewhere), sometimes you just have to wonder: how did people cope before TV? Hard as it is to believe, life did exist - for many, many years - here on Earth without any televisions...

    Being Your Own Source Of Happiness

    I used to only have regular TV. I used to watch cable but then I long ago noticed cable is now flooded with advertising.  I am old enough to remember cable when it only showed programs without advertising. This is why we paid for cable in the first place... our subscriptions...

    I Chose Not to Bring One When I Divorced

    The way I saw it, my life was changing, as if the whole side of a mountain just collapsed into an avalanche.  At the same time, I was feeling compelled to 're-simplify' my life, and as I looked into future expenses on the background of a seemingly impenetrable void where a...
