  1. Retro TV shows! Three months ago in early October 2020, I ordered these DVD sets from ebay. For a month, the tracking number indicated that USPS hadn't received the package from the seller. I believed the seller when she said that she did ship, but what can you do? After I waited a month, and without fuss, she gave me a refund. Today, out of the blue, they showed up in my mail box. I already bought them from another seller on ebay couple of months ago. These are in better condition than my other new and sealed sets. Anyone want to trade DVD box sets of old TV shows? 🙂 

    After re-acquiring a tube TV and appreciating how it does wonders with older games and media, I've re-embraced DVD content. Many old TV shows are only available on DVD, and I've purchased a several (Munsters, I Dream of Jeannie, Bionic Woman, 6M Dollar Man, My Living Doll, some Korean shows) during the past six months after holding out for Blu-ray releases.

      And my wife and I are on-board with sticking with our "small" 40 (maybe it's 42") TV.  It works nicely and we'll just stick with it until it fails.  I've been tempted many times at Costco's prices on new 55" tv's.  But for now, we're good. 

      We do have a nice Sony sound system controlling the whole entertainment system, and it sounds great.  Blu-ray, Roku, TV, and a spare HDMI cable for laptops are hooked up.

      It ridiculously humorous -- TVs just get bigger and bigger and prices have dropped so much. Whatever the size, it's a treat to sit in front of the TV and take in the sound from a sound system.

      Only problem I have is the 30 year old sofa from my parents' old house that I put in the TV room. I can't sit on that sofa for long without being a little paranoid about messing up my back.

      This is the chair I use for my TV watching.  I love it -- it's so comfy for me.  It's very portable too -- very easy to move wherever you want it.  Ikea Poang.
