  1. I never even owned a television until just a few years ago! So many come into my home and ask, “Where is your TV?” Then when I would tell them, “I do not have one”, they look at me like what do you do? In fact I worked many years for the Nielsen TV Ratings and did quite a bit of research on the art form of our civilization. Nielsen loved that I had no TV experience because it insured that I would remain neutral and unbiased in my work. You see without a TV I get to read your interesting blog instead of non-sense and I like that and you….. Thanks again, claudy
