Educational T.V.

"I find television very educating. Every time someone turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book!" ---Groucho Marx

None of the people I live with own a T.V., and I don't either. I find myself mesmorized by them for some reason. For example, when I'm in a restaurant with my friends and there's a T.V. in the room, I find it really hard to concentrate and have a conversation . . . my eyes keep glancing up at the ever-changing bright screen. Curses be on that plastic box (haha).

Saw your comment over on Fake Plastic Fish. Sounds like we have a lot in common! I have been blogging as a church staff member, but I have also been reponding to environmental blogs as a way of engaging the culture through common interests.

Hi, guys. First to Caleb's comment: I think the T.V. writers' strike led to a (temporary) rise in the national I.Q.

Joyce: I'll go over & visit your site. You might want to check my other blog, on Christian Nature Poetry, as it is a little closer to the whole environmental perspective.

I just let my cable subscription lapse -- I hadn't watched the blasted thing from months, finding the Internet (or a book) far more engaging. My dotter and SIL have allowed their little girl only one channel & she happened to pick it when the set was tuned to the Food Channel. So her ideal celebrity is someone called Rachael Rae.

Thanks for visiting again! I have even been somewhat limtied on my internet use!

Hope you're doing well. After I get a "breather" (post-Easter), I want to start putting some links on my blogs, so I'll add you in!
