I miss cable at times mostly because its difficult to get good reception without
it. But I’m really not much of a tv watcher. I like the news, and shows thatare generally found on PBS like Antique Roadshow, etc. My husband and kids miss
it more than I do, thats for sure. We have accumulated so many videos over the
years, there is always something to watch. I look for favorite shows that havegone on dvd and if the price is reasonable, I’ll buy them. It took me over two
years, but we now have the complete Gilmore Girls set for all 7 seasons. The
girls and I love that show and never tire of watching them. We also have aseason of The Cosby Show, Eight Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter and
a couple of seasons of 7th Heaven. Between those, the computer, the wii and
other games, there is no need to be bored here.Donna

Subject: Re: Budget101.com : Need vs WantWhen DH and me moved into our house last year we had a
built in dishwasher. We had one in our apartment as
well. I grew up in the 70’s where my parents couldnot afford a dishwasher and so I got used to not
having. I rarely use a dishwasher. Only when we have
a holiday family gathering and even then, I rather usemy hands. We have basic cable too. I don’t watch as
much t.v. as I used to. Its not because we cannot
afford it, it’s simply that my needs have changed as Ihave gotten older. I think sometimes when we have too
much choice, people want more. I just limit my
choices and then I find I do better with less.— firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:
