Hello Everyone
All the best Hattie for 2018.

I think that on all Soaps murderers should be sent to prison and not escape Justice. It sends out the wrong message.

Kind Regards
Gerald.

Our television left home in 2003 and we have lived without it since then.

Before this it was watched solidly by our daughters and when they left home we moved the TV into the spare room so that we had to make a special effort to see just the things we wanted to see. Eventually, we thought we would try living without it for a while. So far, it has been a long while.

Unfortunately, we had to endure a continuous stream of bile from the TV Licencing Authority in the guise of Crapita, one of the companies BBC outsource licence collection to.
This ordure came every month for a year then less frequently. We were threatened with fines, imprisonment interviews under caution, house searches and a lot more. We did think about buying a licence just to get them off our back!

We both miss some programmes but were able to use the BBC I Player to view in a catch up mode. Now though a TV licence is required for this use and perhaps that is right.

Hello RonD
My wife and I only watch what we want to and our G Children are restricted to 30 minutes
per day.
So much rubbish and unsuitable programmes, we prefer to talk to each other, read a book or
do a crossword. I experiment with various plants and my wife is in to crafting.
The book I am reading at the moment is 'The Galloping Sausage' Odd title because its all
about railways.
Blow the whistle

I watch very little telly, but due to the weather I have been spending more time in the room where the telly is. To be honest I don't really know how to use it on TV mode, I bought it mainly to listen to music and watch he music videos on YouTube.

Isn't it funny that you have over 100 channels on the TV channel. if an advert comes on the one you are watching and you change channels there's always an advert on that one as well. Its very good timing.
