It's been two weeks now since we pulled the plug
on the TV. I'm happy to report that nobody has
suffered or been taken ill.

I say that we have unplugged, but truly, we plan
to still watch the TV. The important difference is
that now we control what is on 100%.

We took the $13 bucks we used to pay to the
Cable Co and upped our Netflix account to
3-at-a-time unlimited and I think this is going to
work out great. The kids have watched the first
few episodes of Fraggle Rock, and we have Land
of the Lost, Little House on the Prairie, Avonlea,
and other greats of yesteryear in the queue.

After the cable guy came and put the filter on
the line to kill the tv channels but let internet
service through, Andrea discovered that there
are still three channels that manage to squeeze
through the filter. Andrea was all smiles to report
that Food Network was one of them! An
answer to her fervent prayers.
