“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

fresh baked bread and rolls .. pic by Mrs. Mac
We have been TV free for over two years .. saving $1,440 .. and giving us back countless hours of time to devote to renewing .. relearning lost life skills. Now .. my son-in-law brought over a $10 TV antenna .. to get about eleven 'free' channels. I'm finding myself getting 'sucked' into the TV vortex from the 'newness' of this old habit .. and must once again break free from it's hold. I have put down the remote .. and will bake bread today! Turn on some nice music .. and get to work. Daylight is burning. If I can just learn to monitor my viewing .. it will be a nice pastime to sit and knit after all chores are done for the day. We get quite a few cooking, nature, outdoorsy shows to choose from .. plus local ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX .. etc. If you're paying too much for cable or satellite TV .. you might want to make a small investment in a 'rabbit-ear antenna' and ditch your monthly bill.
