So the other night, the hubby and I are watching television around 9:30 in the evening and the TV just shuts down with the blinking power light being its only sign of life. Didn't matter what we did, it would not come back on. We both had the feeling it was fried so started to discuss whether it was time to upgrade from a 42" to a 50", 60" etc.
Then my husband in his typical "against-the-grain" fashion, commented that we probably shouldn't have a TV in the house at all. In his opinion, it "dominated" every one's attention and was on too much anyway.
Let's just say we now have a shiny new 50" Flat Screen TV hanging on the wall.
