When I got up this morning I discovered that my wife had built a fire in the fireplace and discovered an app on AppleTV that allows us to watch live streams of broadcast television from around the world. We particularly enjoy watching British television and so we have spent the day watching our favorite British shows when they are being shown in the UK. I realize that this brands us as utter Anglophilic geeks but we don’t care.

This is the final straw that will result in our cutting the cable and relying on internet feeds and local broadcast feeds for all of our television. This will save us a chunk of money and in the long run result in us watching more of what we enjoy and less garbage that we watch because it’s there. It may even help inspire us to turn off the TV and do other things instead.

In any case, it has been a good day. I’ve only been out of the house once to take a bag of garbage to the dumpster. It is still cold out there. I think I’ll leave it out. The fire is still crackling and the second episode of Sherlock is on later. Stay warm, be careful, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
