Technical Difficulties

Tonight I'm experiencing technical difficulties with my camera so I can't get any of my photo's to up load.

Speaking of technical difficulties, have you noticed that in the last 20 years you never hear this anymore on the air ways?

" We are experiencing technical difficulties, please stay tuned".

I keep noticing these commercials for sending into some place and getting coupon for my TV "converted" or I won't be able to watch it. I have to wonder when all this got so complicated? I hate to admit it but we have four TV's in our house. And two of them....yes this is big confession to get off my chest....belong to me. One in the studio and one in the glaze room. Since I do most of my work at night I have to admit I like to watch "my shows". ( My new favorite one is "The Mentalist", just in case you where wondering). Truth also be told I'm like everyone else out there who just listens to good tunes, NPR and books on tape. I can't limit myself to just one form of entertainment while I work. And my black and white 12" TV's have served me well for many years with a state of the art coat hanger on top of both of them! Secretly I've been looking at all the ads in the Sunday paper to see what a new fangled TV set would cost me because who knows when I can get one of those strange converter boxes out in my shed. Boy do I have a long list of electronics for Santa this year!....... never thought I'd hear myself say that.

With our recent move, we have a TV set in our bedroom for the first time... But still don't have one in the studio. I can't even fathom how I'd manage that. Unlike most of the young adults I know, I can't hold more than a couple of things in my head at once. Audio (i.e. NPR or tunes) works out OK, but visual stimulus would short-circuit me I think!... Hope Santa brings you all the TVs you want!

I totally have one in my studio. Usually I never "SEE" the show...but I enjoy having "them" in my studio with me... and "they" never touch or break anything... unlike the other "little voices".
