"A new TV is a new adventure these days..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Friday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York
( A suburb of Buffalo, N.Y.)
 and has worked in the ophthalmology
 field of medicine for nearly 40 years

A new TV is a new adventure these days

Actually Judith and her husband had a TV
Like this, as many of us did!

A new TV is a new adventure these days
I can remember back when my husband and I were first married; in the 1970's money was tight and we felt lucky to be able to purchase a black and white TV.

We enjoyed it for several years until our first son was born in 1981. We decided to splurge and get a color TV for him to watch Sesame Street on.  We had to rise from the couch each time we wanted to change the channel and we kept that TV so long that we wore out the rubber lining on the channel button.  
When I think back on how simple TV watching was then I am amazed.  We had our basic 3 Channels and  PBS with a few others to pick from.  Last week we decided to splurge again and get a "Smart" TV.

No longer did we bring the TV home and just plug it in; we needed an installer to come and explain how the "smart" thing worked.  Guess we weren't smart enough to figure it out.  After a hour of fooling around with it, we were instructed how to use it and how to get the most out of it.  I can now click on my phone to watch movies and etc.

  It is quite amazing I must say.  The picture appears to be part of our room and I can actually see the pours on peoples faces.  Maybe it is too clear at times!  Technology, gotta love it... 

Hana Hou, (Encore)

My smart TV became senile and no longer was smart. So I bought a Roku device which makes any TV smart. I like it better than when my smart TV functioned perfect. For $29.00 for Roku Express, much cheaper to buy a regular HD flat screen and add a Roku device. It has all the same apps, Netflix, Hulu, and all those other ones you will never use in fact my Roku has many more Apps than my smart TV did! I even got FOX news clips for free!
