A new place to watch some favorite TV shows

There was a time, boys and girls, when folks who watched TV didn’t have all the fancy advantages and options you have these days. We couldn’t watch shows on phones because phones consisted of an earpiece and mouthpiece hanging on the kitchen wall. We remember when shows were black and white — and not for some artsy effect — and when there were three channels, two of which you could see semi-clearly.

I usually work from home about three days a week. Being in the communications field, most of what I do can be done can be done from just about anywhere with an internet connection. Don’t worry, though: I’m not writing this from the bathroom. It’s not like I’m the president. “Hey, Melania, pause ‘Fox and Friends.’ I got an idea for a legendary Tweet that’s going to go right up their with the Gettysburg Address and the Emaciated Promulgation. Besides, last night’s Big Mac is calling. May have a full-on Tweet storm coming on.” When I’m in the actual office […]
