(**Huh...I did have this blog posted Thursday before the big Blogger meltdown of the past 2 days. But now it's "gone baby, gone". I can't find it at all. So lets see if I can remember how it went.**)
Most of you who read our blog know that SM and I suspended our Direct TV account last month. We've both been noticing how relaxed and mellow we are now that we don't have the TV on when we're home. SM and I are news piggies. We love to see and discuss local and world events.
Now that we're not plugged in 24-7, we have to make an effort to obtain our news via online sources. To be perfectly honest, I just don't care what's going on in the world that much anymore. All I can really control is what's happening in my backyard.
Of course I want to know about the earthquake in Japan and the southern twisters. I just don't need every minute detail examined 6 ways to Sunday. Information overload.
SM and I cancelled our "big city" newspaper a few year ago too. We'd noticed that "If it was news to them it was old news to us." Maybe print just couldn't keep up with the internet but it was just silly paying ever increasing prices for a paper that was becoming redundant.
So these days, this is how I like my news best.
Thanks to my good friend Susan who keeps me supplied with her old papers. Hopefully, they'll help keep the weeds down.
