Sailaway,

Can you move to the left a little? You're partially blocking the lens.

Re: how many tvs do you have

If we are counting CRTs as TVs (I don't because I don't watch TV on them) then add 4 more to my pile.

Sailaway,

Dude! You must have one cool house.

Re: how many tvs do you have

How cool, 2 other people don't have TVs either! We haven't had one in about 8 years--it is so nice and quiet and we have lots of time to read! But no ability to chitchat at parties and it makes my mom mad that we don't know not to call her when her shows are on!

One 32 inch CRT in the living room which DW watches mostly. Every now and then I'll watch a bit of sports and the 6pm news.

I could live without TV quite easily. *However, DW likes to fall asleep
with the TV on (I can't do it unless I am really sleepy). *Anyway, our peak was about 7 sets (4 here and 3 at the condo). *Currently
we have 2 here and 3 at the condo. *Very little invested in any of this, nor in associated VCRs and DVD players. *

Thought you had "gone to TX" and are at the condo? You back already?

We came back today.
My Dad was hospitalized here in Illinois for 4 days (he is out now). If he is okay
by the week end, we will head back south on Saturday.

I can sympathize; the only T.V. I own I received in elementary school. To put that in perspective, I have finished law school and am now a practicing lawyer (albeit a young one).

Re: how many tvs do you have

My conclusion? There are a lot of TVs out there. Frugal types have a hard time getting rid of old tvs. And people don't want others to think they might be watching too much tv.

Next poll, HRT.
