I spend $100 a month to get hundreds of channels on cable TV. But what do I watch? DVD's of old TV shows: Hart to Hart, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Perry Mason, Bullwinkle. Did you know that the entire series of Bullwinkle is now out on DVD? At the moment I'm watching the DVDs of the BBC/PBS Mystery series (10 hours) of Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane from 1987.
The last few years, I've been giving handmade items as Christmas presents (knitting cotton dish cloths, cross-stitching ornaments, etc). Isn't that what I did when I was a little kid and didn't have money for gifts? What goes around comes around? Hopefully my skill is better now than it was then!
